Creating convincing natural environments is no longer a challenge with VUE, the program used to model and render the photorealistic backdrops seen in blockbuster movies like Avatar. It's a standalone program that integrates seamlessly with many major 3D applications via optional plugins. In this course, you'll see how easy it is to create photorealistic environments in VUE. Author Aaron F. Ross covers sculpting and procedurally generating terrain, adding realistic lighting and atmospherics, and creating thousands or even millions of natural objects such as trees, rocks, and plants in an instant with EcoSystems. With VUE's powerful tools and Aaron's instruction, you'll have everything you need to start building landscapes, oceans, atmospheres, ecosystems, and other realistic digital worlds.
