Furniture Rendering Tips
« on: February 22, 2011, 09:58:40 pm »
I am using KeyShot for mostly rendering furniture that is NOT made of plastic.  I know KeyShot is great for rendering all things "BLING BLING" for traditional Industrial Design, but I'm looking for the softer side of KeyShot.  With this said I am looking for 2 different things to be explained or hinted at. 

Wood :  Are there any examples of photo real wood textures and colors that have been done in KeyShot?  Does anyone have a detailed process for giving woods different colors, veining, sheen.  Are there any good examples or tutorials available?

Upholstery :  Any hints at making objects look soft and plush?  What are some good materials and toggles to mess with?  Are there any good examples or tutorials available?

THANKS EVERYONE !

Try These two sources:

http://www.selectveneers.co.uk/
http://www.cgtextures.com/

Then use Keyshot to edit their color, scale etc
