Course description

Visualisation and Composition for Architects

This course is a workflow course. It is designed for Architectural and Interior Design Professionals who are using Revit in their day to day design processes and want to understand how to move models from Revit, through to render through to completed photo-composites. The course is not designed as a substitute for essential level product training, instead this course teaches the workflows and techniques employed in moving models between each specific application to achieve the required end goal. The course will be based around Revit Architecture for modelling, 3ds Max with V-Ray, for rendering, then final output would be achieved using photo-editing software.

Suitability - Who should attend?


It is important that those considering this course have a basic-level understanding of 3D graphical space. Having an essential-level understanding of Revit is beneficial, but not essential.

Target group

Anyone from the building design industry who needs to appreciate the advantages of VR.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Benefits of Visualisation and Composition for Architects Training

  • You will understand the complete workflow from Revit model to visual composition
  • Increasing visual productivity by using V-ray renderer for interior and exterior compositions
  • You will gather useful modelling and texture tricks and tips in the workflow from Revit to 3DS max
  • Learn how to optimise render times by using real time features of the V-Ray renderer

Expected Outcome

As a result of this course you will have a greater understanding of the visualisation workflow that takes a Revit project through to visual composition and presentation. You will gather a greater understand of the toolsets in each application and use them in harmony allowing refined workflows.
