Putting Objects in Scene
show user profile  Landia
How do you put an object in a scene? For example, you design a car and you want to put your car in a scene like on a road. Here is an example:

Is it done in 3DS Max or do you take your model car and import it into Photoshop? Like is I found a jpeg picture of a place I want to put my car in, how does it work?

Or do I have to create everything like the grass, rocks, ocean, clouds, etc. in 3DS max as objects? That way would take a really long time to put a car in a scene. I see a lot of designers putting their cars in some cool places but now sure how they did it. I know how to put a car in a studio scene with lighting or HDRI lighting. But how do you put a car in a nice looking picture of a place you found?

Thanks for any advice!

You need a suitable backplate; which is the background.
You need a ground plane with a shadow/matte material on it. This catches the shadows and shows the background.

You will also need suitable lighting and reflections. IBL (image-based lighting is great for this).
