When you’re looking out the window of your 3D rendered interior scene, you want those trees, the sky, the grassy expanse and any roads to look stunningly perfect. Or maybe, you have a fabulous living area you’ve rendered and need to show the adjacent room through those lovely French doors. Yes, there are a lot of applications where you may need a background image to complete your scene and we have just the quick tip to help you create that perfect window view for your interior scenes in KeyShot.
Window Views for Interior Scenes in KeyShot
Now, if you’re trying to adjust a backplate or angle your model just right against the backplate, you may not get exactly the look you want. There is, however, a faster way that gives you more adjustment options. Setting up a plane behind the window provides a surface for you to apply a label onto. This is useful for three reasons. First, it gives you a fixed surface to apply the image on, giving you more control over your viewing angle. Second, you get a realistic reflection of the image against any reflective material. Third, labels have adjustment options of their own–scale, intensity, depth, etc.–that you don’t have for backplates.
Here, Rex walk you through the process of inserting the plane into the scene, applying the image as a label to the plane and adjusting the label for an absolutely perfect view through your window.
