About this book
Blender is an incredibly powerful tool for creating all kinds of visual assets, but with such power comes complexity. Creating a photorealistic 3D scene may seem like a Herculean task, even for those of us familiar with Blender, but don’t be discouraged! Photorealistic 3D Nature Environment Creation with Blender is here to help.
This hands-on guide will take away the complexity of 3D environment design and provide a clear roadmap to take your existing Blender skills to the next level and create photorealistic scenes and animations in half the time by knowing where to focus your talent.
You'll start by learning how to fix the most common mistakes 3D designers make with modeling, scale matching, texturing, UV mapping, and lighting by unwrapping a log cabin and emitting natural sunlight. These essential skills will be applied and expanded as you construct a realistic and natural 3D environment that includes a river animation using particle systems, physically based rendering, and procedural texturing. Once you’ve created your natural environment, you’ll advance to animating a cinematic sequence, complete with realistic camera wobble and sound, within your scene.
By the end of this Blender book, you'll be able to implement modeling tricks and best practices to make your 3D environments look stunningly lifelike.
