Using architectural glass in Blender 3D

If you have visited the blog in the last couple days, you may have noticed that LuxRender has a lot of interesting tools and features to help us in the process of creating great renderings for architectural visualization. Besides all the features like the Light Groups, this allows us to control almost each aspect of […]

Just to illustrate a bit how part of the training will be handled, I’ve created a timelapse […]
