Whalen Furniture approached me earlier this year for some 3D help. They were looking to create interior scenes that included specific products for use in their marketing and product packaging. These are typically staged and photographed after the actual furniture has been built. With very tight time constraints, it all had to be generated digitally.
Using 3ds Max and V-Ray, I setup each scene based on client direction. From there each product was rendered in a variety of angles including close-ups on specific features. Despite the time crunch, needing to learn new software, and hefty render time, we made the deadline and created some great life-like images.
