Best Practices for Photorealistic Rendering

Written by: Parametric Technology GmbH | Published:

Photorealistic rendering solutions are more feature-filled and easier to use than ever. By following four best practices, engineers can use these applications to create more realistic images more quickly.

While photorealistic rendering applications for engineers are not new, they are now more advanced and easy to use. Additionally, some are being integrated into standard CAD/CAM/CAE packages. This allows engineers to use their existing models seamlessly to create photorealistic images, rather than having to export models from their CAD/CAM/CAE system and import them into the rendering system.

This PTC Feature Article introduces four best practices—using imaged based lighting, appearance libraries, physically correct lighting and global illumination, and realistic shadows. Following these, engineers with all levels of experience with photorealistic rendering will be able to create highly realistic renderings more quickly and easily.
