Making 3D Renders that Look Beautiful and Real

The presence of 3D software technology has made the process of preparing packaging, blueprints, and the like much easier. It has impacted several industries such as manufacturing, marketing, interior design, architecture, and even fashion is several ways, primarily of this making the process easier and more affordable.

But not all 3D renders are created equal. When not executed perfectly, 3D renderings can look fake and unbelievable, which can cheapen the design, idea, or product they represent.

Want to take the leap with 3D rendering but want to maintain the integrity of the overall look of the design? Here are some quick tips to achieve it:

1. Let the sun shine in.

For those using 3D rendering when creating layouts for designs concerning living quarters or offices, incorporating sunlight into the space helps make the space come alive. It makes for a more natural feel for the area as the natural lighting gives a perspective to the consumer that it is a real living room for example. Most photographic items also espouse the natural light exactly for the realistic look it affords.

A good way to do this is to make real photos as reference; the nearer the 3D looks to it, the better. For those with higher budget, incorporating the IES light profiles also helps a lot.

In terms of lighting, do not just stick to sunlight – streaming light from other sources such as lamps and bulbs are there too especially for offices and tighter spots such as foyers or garages. The dramatic effect of sunsets are great for 3D renders, too.

2. Make the colors more realistic.

The thing about 3D rendering is the freedom it provides most users. At times, it is used to the extreme and the color combinations become too much to handle. This is where the issue of looking fake comes in. Remember that 3D renderings are actual references, especially for interior design layouts.

To keep things in proper perspective, it is better to be cautious when it comes to use of color. Ask if the design can be easily replicated in real life. Try to find out if the overall look can be really achieved easily based on the needs of the client. The answer will more than be sufficient to discern whether the combinations are too over the top.

3. Remove sharp edges.

There are no sharp edges in real life so why should your 3D renders show them? Make sure to maximize to soften every edge on your renders. This can be applied even for packaging designs and other layouts.

4. Do not make it too perfect.

Aside from sharp edges, the look of nature or real life is not really 100 percent perfect. Make it look like people are actually using them or living in them when executing renders. Chances are, these renders provide the viewer a more comfortable view of the place.
