Whats up everyone. Recently I purchased my own .com website and have put my designs on hold to focus on the website. It will be interactive and have some 3d elements on my product page. I just want it to look different then most pages. My question is: since I want to make it interactive wieht 3d elements, I need to be able to render my models and have them look like I took a picture of them. I only use 2 programs, i know those well but I havent really explored realistic rendering of metal. Ive done a lot of research and from what ive read it looks like V-Ray 2.0 and Maxwell Render are 2 great plugins to master. What do you guys think? Those are just plugins, but im not sure what program is best to use those on, I know V-Ray goes well with 3d studio max, but for jewelry? Anyone out there...? Any help will be appreciated... By the way, what I plan on doing is render my items 360 degrees so when you click and drag over the item, it spins around and apply that to all my other producs similar to a carousel style flash gallery like this one but in a more true 3d stye. http://thetoke.com/#/works/drum_channel_metronome Anyways, I cant get to this point if my renderings arent realistic.
