Hey Don re your

http://forums.turbocad.com/index.php/topic,17043.msg99003.html#msg99003

Top quality drawing indeed, can you share the techniques used to produce the quality ( not the drawing itself)?
If not then this maybe this could become a product you could sell.

Thanks

Hi Darryl,

All of my renders follow pretty much the same process. The key in my opinion is having a good selection of materials or the willingness to create new ones and having a good supply of HDR images. AND, most of all, a willingness to spend some time experimenting.

I have created some new TC 2016 video tutorials where a couple use RedSDK for materials and rendering and a couple use LightWorks for materials and rendering.

Check them out on my YouTube channel.

RedSDK specific Playlists:

Paper Cup: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAdJfVv2fDkTt7t7guEgZzdHxx8i0egos
Electrical Box: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAdJfVv2fDkSLGEVkRRGkZUNldZVA34uv
Model Dynamo: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAdJfVv2fDkS1EF4kEMo2PUDTrxmSEJo6

LightWork Specific Playlists:

Toolmaker's Vise: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAdJfVv2fDkSQX0KpzMqDSCKUK5cffDyi
Liquid Cylinder: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAdJfVv2fDkQBdYctn-Z2wQtqNVE2JYwt
Tap Follower: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAdJfVv2fDkSjZUCLfGO27RfCcrYv6tWz

You don't need to do the modeling if you don't want to but check out the parts on materials, luminance and render scene environment. You will see that I follow a pretty typical process for all.
