If you have already rendered your project in any 3D rendering software you have already realized that it is not just pressing that render button and everything looks beautiful in a magical way. We have separated within our methodology 5 special tips to help you in the composition of your images.
So for this tip to be really practical, you have to set a time to be objective in your research. It’s simple. You organize your day and set aside 20 minutes for research on the subject, project and reference. And as soon as time runs out you start designing from a selection. It makes a tremendous difference. For architectural images you can use Pinterest.
Invest your time in quality blocks
A huge difference between a bad and a good render is often in the quality of the blocks that you insert in your project. Foyr Neo has a super advantage over other programs because it has a huge library made by the users themselves. Then there is always that question: how do I find good blocks? Here as in the previous tip, you can get lost in time and be forever researching what to put in the project. So first define what you want to look for.
Size and scale of objects
It is one of the most recurring errors, which we don’t see, don’t notice and pass by. But they have a big impact on those who are viewing the images. If an object in your scene is out of scale, its rendering will make it appear that everything there is false. So be sure of the size of things in your render. Be wary even of the furniture.
Avoid very wide angles
It happens a lot on a daily basis, of spending hours doing the project and at the time of rendering we want everything to appear on the scene, right? Wrong. Because when we do that, we increase the camera’s viewing angle and everything gets messed up. The problem with the open angle is the composition. Whoever is seeing this image for the first time does not know where to look. After all, you wanted to show everything at once. Instead of using a horizontal image format, you can use portrait mode, a standing image, more vertical and place only a portion of your project.
Another tip that improves the realism of your blocks is to add rounded corners. If you look at the world around you, you will realize that it is very difficult to have a 100% straight corner, as most of the time we have a slight rounded edge. This change makes a lot of difference in a final render because the light passes in a more natural way in the material.
Making your render look more realistic depends on a sum of factors: configuration of light, materials, reflections, besides the project itself. We separate these tips to help in your production process. But in case you want to go deeper, we suggest that you see lots of online videos on achieving a perfect 3D rendering.
