VW Marketing Images should include a how-to post


Kevin McAllister

Question

I personally wish that any rendered marketing image from VW included a how-to post in a forum designated for this specific purpose. Bits and pieces are sometimes shared but they are all over the forums and not easily tracked down. If the marketing image is being created in VW (or using a workflow that includes VW) why not share the how to? It would make for a great resource and it would also help users to understand if/when post processing is needed. Think of it as a Greyscale Gorilla tutorial (https://greyscalegorilla.com/tutorials/#all) for the image. Include files, screen shots and possibly a video tutorial.

 

(Maxon does this with C4D. Releases often have a series of marketing images and then at shows/conferences Maxon has advanced users showing how parts of them were created.)

 

Inspired by this thread -

It is possible! Not super intuitive, but possible. See the attached file at the bottom of the post for how to set it up.

Yeah, I do know you can do this. But you can only cut it in one plane, not two, as in the VW image.

 

I also find those design layer section viewports rather unstable. One minute they are there and working fine and the next they are mangled or replaced by a blank X or similar.

This is effectively true. While you can cut away on a second plane by setting Length Range to "Limited by Section Line Length" (and positioning the section line accordingly), the cut plane of that second cut doesn't received the Section Style fill:

Nice! You could then fill it in on the annotations layer.
