Product Information

  • Required Products: None

I have recently made discoveries of new ways to light and render in Carrara which have led to a noticeable step change in the realism I am achieving in my renders. This set shares all of that in an easy to use set, based on the environment of a photographer’s studio.

The core of the set is 16 scenes with different lighting setups and optimized render settings for maximum realism. Load the scene of your choice, then load your character and any props, pose and press render to make your most realistic renders ever in Carrara!

Also included are a Backdrop Screen and Backdrop Curtain with a huge range of over 100 creative shaders to enhance your subject.

12 bonus poses for Victoria 4 are also included, plus mirrors where applicable, making 22 poses in total. A posing stool prop is also included.

The results are often as good as rendering in unbiased physically-based renderers such as Luxrender, but render much faster and within the familiar Carrara environment. Renders of this quality do take time – although not as much as you may think – and so this set is not suited to animations.

Additional Details

  • The render settings have been optimized to produce the highest quality, most realistic renders as quickly as possible. Renders of this quality do take time, and this set is therefore not suited to animations.
  • This set includes lighting, cameras and backdrops to produce images which look like those from a photographer's studio. It does not include stands and other items you may find in such a studio but which do not contribute to the image. It is for images BY a studio and not OF a studio.
