Z_IES LIGHTS 2018 . . .

There is a lot of free IES lights over the internet which is basically all perfect in terms of shape or intensity of lights. Here I made a trial to make my own IES lights using generator and here's what I've got not totally perfect but maybe it add more drama in the scene. You can fine lots of free IES generator in the web just download it and make you own personalized IES lights. Save and load to your project...If somebody want my trial IES lights you can check :) load directly and follow the instruction below and hit the road jack . . .  

IES stands for Illuminating Engineering Society

IES standard file format was created for the electronic transfer of photometric data over the web. It has been widely used by many lighting manufacturers and is one of the industry standards in photometric data distribution. An IES file is basically the measurement of distribution of light (intensity) stored in ASCII format. You can think of it as a digital profile of a real world light. In 3d software like 3ds max it can be used for creating lights with shapes and physically accurate form.

Autocad to Coreldraw . . . Tips and Tricks

To import an AutoCAD Drawing Database file (DWG) or AutoCAD Drawing Interchange Format (DXF)
In CorelDraw - Click File  Import and Locate the folder in which the file is stored.
Choose DWG - AutoCAD (*.dwg) or DXF - AutoCAD (*.dxf) from the list box next to the File name box. - Click the filename and Click Import.
From the 3D projection list box in the Import AutoCAD file dialog box, choose a plane projection of a three-dimensional object as seen from a given focal point. If you want to reduce the number of nodes on the imported object, enable the Auto-reduce nodes check box.

In the Scaling area, enable one of the following options:
Automatic — scales the drawing using the scale of the AutoCAD source file
English (1 unit = 1 inch) — lets you scale the drawing in inches
Metric (1 unit = 1 mm) — lets you scale the drawing in millimeters
Click OK.

Versions of CorelDRAW (10, 11, 12, X3, X4...X8) directly support import of DWG files (in older AutoCAD formats). Due to the complexity of the DWG format this import might be unreliable - so convert your drawing data rather via the exchange formats DXF, WMF, EPS, or PLT (HPGL). All these formats can be exported from AutoCAD and reliably imported into CorelDRAW.
Similarly for backward conversions of .CDR into .DWG files, do not use the DWG export offered in CorelDRAW. It does not create official DWG-format files and such "forged" drawing files may cause problems during further processing. Again, use rather the AutoCAD text format - DXF, or WMF.
In the New version of Corel Draw you can copy and paste directly the dxf / dwg file format...by copy-paste you will get vectors in Corel. The linetype and thickness are preserved.

After you open the DXF file in Corel Draw click a line. If this will cause all the line to be selected press CTRL+U to ungroup them. Select all the lines and use the Outline Tool to change globaly the thickness to Hairline or to other value as you need.

Lumion movie effects file (*lme file format) . . . comparison test from build mode to render output.

Lumion movie effects file (*lme)

I made a comparison from build mode to render output or even in animation, and there's a lot of trial to achieve good illumination.
From custom settings I made a trial and error to achieve good illumination in build mode but when i set to render a scene its totally different, I adjust basically around using low and high temperature with high contrast, very low sun brightness, specific amount of shadow brightness, a combination of low exposure, full hyperlight, skylight bright and saturation. I think it is important also to put cloud and sky brightness to reflect in reflective materials and overall brightness under sky and clouds are important. Tweaking those parameters around in every project since every model size and orientation along with material sets is different. Even camera angle need to adjust to get what you need. Lumion 8 become quite sensitive with all those parameters that you can see only after you render.

I use this Standard Effects in every scene : 


Add some Style Effects if needed :


To elliminate post process by adding Process Effects :


try to compare my screengrab images and you can download my setting for still and animation...try it !!!

PIRATES . . . resto bar

PIRATES . . . seaside Fine Dining Resto bar
In reality when you hear the word "pirates", You always put in your mind that has a violence or attackers, or the character "Captain Jack Sparrow" of Pirates of the Carribean...and that's why the concept started. This rough messy mouldy direction are based on the selected reference scene parts of the pirates boat, like porthole, crate and barrel, Ship wheel, etc. and from that particular references I produce a concept based on the space planning, flow and circulation of each object to create a scenario. A scene that keep for client vision or interest and attractions.

Featured Visualizer: Zernan Suarez
Some of us can still recognize these excellent images done in Vray SketchUp. Who could believe that most of these works were done with the old VraySU 1.05.33.Well, the man behind them is Zernan Suarez, aka "Zdesign". Zernan is one of the famous visualizer at http://www.cgpinoy.org/ using Google SketchUp and VraySU. I myself is a fan and  follower of  this man. I love the way he creates his scene with dramatic lighting. Zernan's is also a generous and regular contributor of excellent tutorials when it comes to visualization.

If you remember, this vray for sketchup rendered image is one of my entry in September 2010 Chaos Group Vray Render Contest and it's included in one of the pages of CatchUp – SketchUcation Community News – Edition 1
Thank you very much to sketchucation and the Daily Catchup
