3ds Max 配合V-Ray 與After Effects: 最具商業性的設計可視化組合
明白了市場的需求殷切後，問題是:那麼應該學甚麼，將心機資源投放在甚麼技術？。前文提到的統計亦提及在眾多設計可視化工具的使用率中，3ds Max增長15%成第二高增長， V-Ray增長24%成第一。3ds Max一直因高效但易上手而廣被業界採用，它提供強大3D 建模、動畫等工具，在荷里活甚至有製作粒子及重力摸擬的高收入3ds Max專門技術人員。同時，渲染軟件V-Ray為不同領域的優秀3D模型軟件提供了高質量的圖片和動畫渲染，它之所以最得寵，只因最「快」。V-Ray令CG和3D動畫製作人員能爭分奪秒，配合得到「時間就是金錢」的商業步伐。
天行凝方為全港最全面的創意技能培訓機構，提供完整的3D/CG訓練，讓不同程度及需要的學員學習/提升3D/CG技能。我們的3ds Max 全科課程: Diploma in 3D Animation Design，通過3ds Max為學員提供3D製作的完整理解，教授建模，燈光，材質，動畫等製作竅門。而進階CG製作課程: CG Animation & Visualization with 3ds Max ，為已對3D製作有基本認識的學員提升製作技能至專業水平。課程主要教授3個業界頂尖的CG應用程式的使用秘訣： 3ds Max高效流暢的動畫製作，V-Ray快速高質素的渲染引擎，及 After Effects合成與修正的使用技巧，並以Project的製作過程為課程核心，真正緊貼市場需要，令你擁有應付大型/高強度項目的製作力量。就趁今個夏天，現在就報名提升自己，強化實力！
上 月，Autodesk宣布了最新2014系列，其中3D創意可視化軟件3Ds Max最大的新功能，一定是Populate。Populate可讓你輕易製作人群動畫，你只需在設計圖畫出步行路線或閒聊地點，人群便自動產生，做出步 行和聊天等動作。你還可以調整人群的密度、男女比例及顯示方式（火柴人至高清人），相當適合製作建築項目及戶外場景的動畫。看著小人們人來人往，影子也跟 著動，相當好玩。但現時還未提供避免某些動作的設定，也沒有很特別的動作，例如要製作人們在街上便溺的話就要DIY了。不過建議不要放Populate在 附近，因為它的小人們是不會避開哦！

3ds Max + V-Ray + After Effects: The Most Commercial Tool Combos for Design Visualization
People who want to learn CG productions, or 3D animations, often hesitate due to their worries concerning their career path investing money and time learning the relevant skills. Refer to the statistic of CG Architect, 45% of Architectural, 61% of Retail, 79% of Residential and 85% of Advertisement projects employs design visualization. These industries are, in fact, highly developed industries. Moreover, the average price of CG rendering is USD2,000/image in US. In Australia, each 3D animation averages USD28,000 per constructional video clips. The industry in Hong Kong has become more valuable and challenging under globalization.
It is clear that there is a market demand, however, a problem arises: What should I learn? What skill should I focus on? The statistic we mentioned also tells that within the usage of many design visualization tools, 3ds Max has a 15% growth and rated the 2nd place, V-Ray has a 24% growth and rated the 1st place. 3ds Max is a all-time high efficiency, but user-friendly tools, which is widely used by the industry. 3ds Max provides a strong 3D modeling, animation gadgets, which even produces career such as particle production and gravity simulation specialist in Hollywood. Simultaneously, the rendering software V-Ray provide high quality image and animation rendering in different fields. V-Ray is the most beloved tool, simply because it is fast, which made CG and 3D animation producer able to race against time, and in line with the “time is money” pace of business.
Else, many people has a fundamental knowledge of 3D productions, and can do some simple productions. However, they encounter a capability bottleneck on large/very large scale productions. This occurs due to the lack of their project resources management skills, e.g. time, hardware performance, and functions dealing with large scenes, which results in their inability to reach the professional level of the CG production. Actually, the skill mentioned-above has their own tricks, tackling them shall you be able to handle the high pressured CG coordination tasks, and accomplish amazing productions.
Form.Welkin is the most comprehensive creative skills training institution in Hong Kong. We provide complete 3D/CG training, allowing students of different professional level to enhance their 3D/CG skills. Our 3ds Max courses, Diploma in 3D Animation Design by 3ds Max, provides students with thorough understanding f 3D production. Its content covers modeling, lighting, texture, animation production and etc. While our Advanced CG production course allow students who have basic 3D production knowledge to enhance their skill to the professional level. The major courseware include: high efficiency 3ds Max animation production, V-Ray speedy and high-definition rendering engine, and After Effects modification skills. These skills provide you the strength to cope with large-scale projects / high-end productions.
Producing the “Coming and Going” Actions
Last month, Autodesk has announced the latest 2014 softwares. In which, the biggest new feature of 3ds Max the design visualization software, most be Populate. Populate allows you to create crowd animation. All you need to do is to draft the walking path and idle spots on your design, the crowd will then be generated automatically and started actions like walking and chatting. You can also adjust the density of the crowd, male to female proportion and how the little guys are displayed (wire-frame to high definition). The function is really dedicated to constructional projects and outdoor scenes animation. It is really fun to see the little guys coming and going while their shadow follows. Yet there aren’t any setting to avoid some of the actions, neither does special moves. For example, if you want some guys urinating and defecating in the street, you will have to DIY, however, I do not suggest you to place Populate around that area, because the little guys will not be smart to run away!
