how does the new VW RenderWorks compare to 3dmax


Recommended Posts

I am concidering taking on some contract to do high end 3d renderings for a development company to be used in the prepurchase sales materials of condos. I am still kinda hacking my way through 3D max. Great program, but its kinda over kill i think in some ways. Not to mention its a difficult learning curve; However, I am far stronger skilled in the VectorWorks 3d capabilities via version 11.5.

my question; Can I achieve the same high end rendering results in VW's newest version of Renderworks as I would with 3dmax?

Thanks all

I havent used 3dmax in years (10+/-) so I can't speak for that but these images were produced in VW11, there was some photoshop work, people, trees, sky was replaced, background landscape, But the building and general lighting were done using RW Final quality ray trace rendering.



12 has more advanced rendering, but I havent gotten a feel for it yet.
