How to render a car like a pro?
show user profile  S. Silard
Hey guys. So I finished modeling of the car what I've posted into my WIP thread. Tried to render it. Although it didn't look that bad, it didn't do any justice for the model.
So I'm asking for tutorials, tips and tricks for setting up the best, most badass studio lighting possible for cars.

P.S.: I don't have vRay.

Congrats, you found my signature.

Jeff Patton is pretty famous for his car renderings using mental ray or iray.

Also search for tutorial on real photography lighting for inspiration. Here's one pretty nice

Thanks Nanne, perfect video, just what I asked. And holly molly, that Jeff Patton's Lamborghini is beautiful!

For the others: It's the thought that matters.
