Goal : Competence block: code 3 - Extension of knowledge and know-how.
This 2-day session aims to discover how to create realistic photo images from a 3D digital model.
Targeted professional abilities or skills: Be autonomous in the modeling of a digital building model (structure).
Prerequisites: Have a real independent practice of the basic functions of SKETCHUP and in addition for the distance: have a workstation equipped with a minimum of 4 GB of Ram, a webcam and a microphone; and have followed our free introductory webinars to distance learning.
Teaching methods: Computer lab: group limited to 10 trainees face-to-face or synchronous remote training (your choice); alternation between presentation of concepts by the trainer and application by the learners in the form of concrete exercises, proposed and supervised.
Profile of trainers: The trainer is an architect and masters the VRAY tool that he uses in a production environment.
Acquired at the end of the internship: Acquire professional autonomy in the use of photorealistic image rendering functions.

Conditions for success: Throughout the training, it will be necessary to be fully present and attentive to the concepts presented and to put them into practice by carrying out the exercises proposed in a participatory manner. Afterwards, and for a minimum period of 2 months, it will be necessary to apply what has been learned; in a professional setting would be ideal; or in any other context and in particular in that of our "self-service" offered free of charge according to our access conditions.
