[Max] I need help! / Large Carpark Modeling
« on: 2018-08-14, 09:20:59 »
I do a lot of industrial ,pharma work, and carparks are always in there somewhere.

I generally models everything.
I noticed a lot of people paint the Asphalt, and lines, but for the closer up view  example from the carpark at eye level is this good enough do you think.

I would love to hear other peoples work flow.
Thank you

General CG Discussion / axyz people collections ?
« on: 2018-07-11, 15:50:20 »
I am finding the need to purchase 3D people for projects.

Which collections have people purchased, I do mostly large scale master plans and interiors.

Advise would be appreciated as they are not cheap.

Thank you



I am currently working on Interiors for a Maternity Hospital.
The Images are rendering, but I still need to find good Pregnant people to put in to the images.
Now the client thinks they fall out of the sky, I have some Medical People, but pregnant ladies and their partners is what I really need.

Has anybody any idea where to source them?
Thank you

[Max] General Discussion / VRAY NEXT AND CORONA
« on: 2018-05-25, 08:39:02 »

I like a lot I would say have both VRay and Corona Licences.
I am using Corona more and more ,even though it crashes a lot I have to say on large projects.

What is the general consensus on the upgrading to Vray Next, as it seems to have moved on a lot, if one to believe the hype.
But the prices have gone up too, the license I have with up to now ( 1 pc and 5 nodes)  has always been the latest, is now €1,000 to upgrade.

There was nothing really we have not seen at the Total Chaos meeting, I for one would be a bit annoyed if I had gone to see what has been on the net for the past month.
May be the workshops had more in depth updates.


Off-Topic / GTX 1070 and Go to MY PC
« on: 2018-05-01, 11:46:45 »

I have a new graphics card G1 GTX 1070.
The Driver website for Nvidia is down for a while now, so no update.

The GOTOMYPC from home to the PC in work with the G1 card is not working.
I can see the screen from home but Max wont move or do anything.

Anybody heard of this issue before.

Thank you


VR Questions......

1. I am doing some VR's for a client of a space just finished.
   I notice there aren't any images with people in the VR's  any reason why?

2. Has there been any improvement to the VR Image set up in Corona in the last while.
    VR Still Images and hotspots seem to be the cheap way to keep clients happy.

3. What are people using to present their VR?
    A lot of Clients have iPhones, so the Gear VR is not a work around.

4. Also I use the Viewer, at €59 a month it's adding up, so what other services are out there doing the same thing for less?

5. Rendered Resolution 6144 x 6144 is that good enough?

Thank you
