After 10 years designing and rendering with the same software I switched to Sketchup and Vray because they perform good on a Mac (while the old software only worked on Windows so I had to use Bootcamp which was very inconvenient).
I switched software before so I didn’t expect it to be a big deal, but I could not have been be more wrong, Sketchup & Vray turned out to be in a totally different universe than I was used to.
So a big hooray for Youtube tutorials, without them I would have been lost.
After a few weeks of tutorials and trial & error things started to look ok, and after that better and better, and now a few months later I’ve designed & visualized a restaurant, a stand, landscapes with futuristic machines for a video and a villa, and I’m very happy with the result.
Not only do the renderings look very good but I’ve also regained my fun in designing, like this design of a villa, just for the fun of it.
