About the Course

Many industry leaders use renders instead of photography now, and for good reason.

In this course, you’ll learn how to create stunning renders of 3D CAD models using Keyshot.

It’s ideal for product designers, interior and spatial designers and architects who want to use rendering to create visually impactful shots of their designs when studio photography may be unaffordable or inaccessible.

This course is suitable for anyone who has basic 3D CAD modelling experience.

Rendering is not just a glamourous end to a design process.

It can also be used to promote your own work and impress potential employers, customers or investors.

It allows you to test the aesthetic of a design without prototyping it, and saves you money that would have to be spent on a photographer and studio.

Design companies all over the world are therefore turning to CGI to improve how they market their products.

This course is suitable for beginners with a knowledge of CAD as it will start with the basics, however, there will be lots of information that more experienced users will benefit from based on my experience with the software.

The goal is always to make rendering as easy as possible, so that you can spend as much time as possible making a better product.

On this course you will:

- start by using a variety of CAD models provided by the tutor to construct scenes within Keyshot
- follow processes step-by-step
- customise scenes to your own taste
- compose and render a photo-realistic scene from scratch
- light scenes using a combination of basic and advanced techniques
- create and edit highly-detailed materials using external textures
- navigate Keyshot efficiently using a variety of workflow techniques
- output renders using optimised settings
- receive a valuable set of notes to support your learning after the course.

What will I gain?

Upon completing this course, you will be able to apply your rendering knowledge to a wide range of projects, and identify what scene would work well for a certain product.

You will be able to create advanced Keyshot renders using a combination of the basic and expert tools.

You will leave with professional renders that will enhance your portfolio or CV, elevating your work above the rest of the competition.
