Tools and Techniques for High-End Presentation and Photorealistic Rendering

You are only as good as you look!

This online "virtual conference" will include presentations, demonstrations and an interactive panel session where you can learn the current state-of-the-art tools and techniques for visualisation.

  • See the latest tools in action and how to improve your workflows, presentations and visualisations.
  • Hear from industry experts about real-world projects, how the technology's used, and where it's going.
  • Have your questions answered and discussed from both a technology and business perspective.

Industry leaders from Binyan, FloodSlicer and Urban Circus will discuss their experiences building successful studios and creating awe-inspiring visualisation. Experts from Autodesk will demonstrate the latest tools and workflows.

Sessions include:

  • Beyond the Tools
    How creativity and innovation have become the stock and trade of 3D artists the world over.
    Andrei Dolnikov Founder & CEO, Binyan
  • BIM Design Visualization Workflows
    Reviewing best practices on how to link and prepare BIM files for use in 3ds max, including how best to manage large complex files, what assets (families) to use from Revit vs 3ds max, and best settings for still renders and animations.
    Samuel Macalister Architect & BIM Solutions Engineer, Autodesk Australia
  • The Future of Digital Tools in the Built Environment
    The world's current state of play is a timely nudge forward in this space and Ben will share his thoughts on how digital tools are driving real value.
    Dr Ben Guy, founder and CEO of Urban Circus
  • 3D Modelling from concept design through to construction
    InfraWorks is a 3D modelling platform for Infrastructure projects, but it is much more than that. It is used across many disciplines due to its speed, ease of use and flexibility through supporting multiple data formats. Get an overview of InfraWorks, with examples of how designers and asset owners can benefit from using this tool from concept design through to construction.
    Adam Walmsley Civil Infrastructure Technical Specialist, Autodesk Australia
  • Bending Technology
    This session will investigate the tools we use today, how they've changed, and how the artist can bend the rules to create newer and better things. What are the pitfalls of this process, and how can we take this process and inform the tools we need rather than accepting the tools we are offered?
    Daniel Flood Director, FloodSlicer
  • 3ds Max 2021 new features and updates
    A quick look at some of the cool new features, and improvements to old features, in the newly released 3ds Max 2021.
    David Zwierzchaczewski Animation Specialist, Autodesk Australia
