Remote Learning

Live mentoring

GMZN academy’s online course was designed to be flexible enough to learn from your home, remotely, but not alone.

You will interact and get immediate feedback from your mentors.

Just like our physical courses, you will be guided through live practices and personalized projects by GMZNstudio's 3D artists as your mentors. They are available for 4 hours to give you feedback, answer your questions and help you to grow professionally. “Seats” are still limited to 10 to ensure the highest quality. As the course is based on live, interactive activities, we will create your study group based on similar timezones.


Lesson 1

What will you learn?

_model preparation for 3D

_3DS Max interface

_theoretical operation and Vray settings

_ preparation and detail of the 3D model derived from various software modeling including: SketchUp, Rhinoceros, Revit and Autocad.

_ 3D model export and 3DS import management Max _ explanation of the 3DS Max interface aimed at rendering of static images.

_ installation of free scripts and plug-ins _ what a render engine is and how it works

_ management of V-ray settings both theoretically and practically, in in order to control, according to the needs, times and quality of renders

Lesson 2

_physical camera V-ray

_general lighting

_ how a camera works in photography

_ room exposure management as in the real world

_ physical camera settings in Vray

_ physical property of light

_ external lighting: Vray Sun and Vray Sky

_ external lighting: Vray Sun and HDRi

_ internal lighting: natural

_ internal lighting: artificial

During our live online classes your mentor will guide you through the initial steps of basic architectural visualization. By the end of the course, you will acquire powerful skills to handle recurring challenges and problems.

Lesson 3-4

_architectural materials base

_ physical study of the material and transposition in Vray

_ material editor

_ dielectric materials (plastic, wood, glass, fabric, concrete)

_ conductive materials (chromed and satin metal, gold, bronze)

_ natural materials (water, grass)

Lesson 5

_final exercise

_ the practical exercise will cover all the topics covered during the course _ the reference will be made on a 3D model provided by us
