Ok so new year resolution not quite broken but it has been several week since my last post, let hope I can improve on that.
Following on from the Acquisition of VRed just over a year ago this is a webinar run by Car Design News and Autodesk. This is a continuation of a series of webinars about various Automotive & Transportation topics.
Please register for the webinar link. If you cannot attend on the day please register any way and review the webinar at a later date.
Lighting has become a key component of brand identity for automakers, and OEMs make significant investments in lighting design and innovation. Traditional methods for exploring lighting aesthetics and behavior includes complex niche solutions for optics simulation mastered only by a few.
With high fidelity and reliable lighting visualisation in the Autodesk VRED Professional, understanding and validating the behavior and appearance of lighting becomes faster and easier than ever. Quicker iterations allow designers to explore and test various lighting scenarios, that previously would have taken hours or even days to perform with traditional optics simulation solutions.
Lighting designers, engineers, visualisation experts and CGI artists use the full power of the VRED Professional ray tracing render engine to produce realistic and compelling imagery that accurately depict the interactions of materials and lighting sources in real time.
During this webinar you will learn about:
- Head & tail light visualisation
- Light source design
- Interior mode lighting
- Exterior lighting
Exploring techniques such as:
- Photon mapping
- Incandescence materials
- Ray files
- IES light profiles
Presenting the Webinar will be SQA engineer Lukas Fäth, previously part of the PI-VR consulting and visualisation team. After graduating in Digital Media in cooperation with the PI-VR, Lukas was involved in the visual and conceptual development of VRED. As a 3D artist, he created marketing imagery and tested VRED technology to guide future development. Lukas is responsible for quality assurance, support and consulting, and is a professional VRED trainer for the automotive industry and CGI agencies with a strong artistic knowledge base.
Next week I will provide you with an update on the 2014 Autodesk Innovation Forum in Munich, (AIF) currently registrations are closed due to the popularity of the event.
