Product Visualization using Blender 2.8 Submission for the 1st Blender Conference USA Los Angeles #bcon20
With the new Blender 2.8, the toolbox for professional product visualization was extended by a new realtime render engine and specific compositing nodes that are very helpful for blending the render output into photographic footage or backplates.
In my talk, I address how we use Blender 2.8 as a tool for efficient product visualization meeting the high industry standards regarding flexibility and quality of work.
More precisely, I present artistic & design requirements of emotional product renderings and product detail renderings and how we meet those using Cycles and Eevee, but still being flexible enough to meet our customer’s demands in the production workflow.
Technically, my talk contains some helpful hints for doing/using
compositing with Cryptomate
filter and masks
re-combination of renderpasses
production of 360° interactive images
Elaspix – founded 2009 – provides product visualization services and runs an Eevee-driven render farm for near-realtime product rendering in shops.
emotional visualization that tells a story and inspires the customer
