Working on mood

  • While putting together a presentation for my office to demonstrate how easy it is to take a well made Sketchup model and get really great renderings with minimal effort, I used a model from Mike Brestel in the 3dwarehouse (https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.c…-Mixed-Use-Brick-Building) I wanted to make sure people focused on the process and less on the design, so I took a well made model that was a blend of traditional and modern without being an internal office project that people already knew. The model was really well made, and was a great backdrop for showing my peers the power of Enscape in an hour long session. Mike has other models on his warehouse page (https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/by/mikebrestel). The designs are really nice if you're looking for models to build scenes around for practice.


    I was trying to create a rainy Pacific Northwest kind of vibe with these



  • Thanks Demian Gutberlet! It's a simple photoshop cloud material in the reflection slot. I do find it interesting that the wet pavement look works better if you turn down the bump intensity. Is there something I'm missing, or is that how it is supposed to work? I do like the effect of a rain on the glass in the second image. It's a great little bit of detail that is super subtle but adds to the realism.


    No Bump applied to the material, puddles look nice and puddle-like


    Increased bump and you lose the nice puddle quality


  • The most impressive one is the glass part with water drops with warm light on the interior part.

    Great one.

    Where can we find the map water drops texture and how did you do it?

    I mean I saw the material setting, but is there more than material setting to achieve that water drop on glass effect sir?

    I believe we got the one we're using from poliigon. https://www.poliigon.com/texture/rain-drops-and-streaks-001

    If it was just my map, I'd happily share but since it's not my creation I can't. Sorry.

    I'm sure you can find something similar out there, or use examples online to make your own in photoshop or something. It just takes the concept.
