Have you witnessed the non-existing products being imaged by rendering techniques? Wonder how they come out to be so realistic? Well, a few have mastered the principles of photorealistic rendering and we are here to explain the same.

It is all about the creativity and attitude. If the setup of the scene is graphically realistic, the result is bound to be life-like. An ideal mix of light exposure, camera angles and lots of other aspects make a perfect environment for photorealistic 3D rendering.

A graphic designer must have in mind what he is about to create through rendering technique, otherwise the results can be randomly put together aspects of photo rendering.

Principles of Photorealistic rendering

         Right lights

Right light is an important part of rendering. We all know that lightning is important but creating realistic lightning is what delivers photorealism. Realistic lights create shapes and textures for a photographed object. A right balance of lights and shadows with different sizes and types of lights with experience, imitates the real-light and brings the final image closer to photorealism.

         The perfect shader

While rendering, you are an artist so you must make sure to keep a broad view. The rendering cannot become realistic with just a single perfect component. Different material representations make the choice of a shader difficult. But with a simple strategy, we can reduce the shader complications. The environment and how the lighting is set up reduces the overhead of right shader. Glass becomes one of the most difficult material to be rendered.

         Balance of speed and quality

Rendering is a completely commercial task and is a very long procedure as each pixel is imaged. With progressive rendering techniques and working with a professional renderer, you can achieve a balance between speed and quality.

         Using Render Elements

Are you aware what the Render Elements can do for an image? Reflections and Wirecolor are just a few render elements that add realism to the images. With the right vision of the final products, the render elements can be powerfully utilized to deliver better results with Sketchup photorealistic rendering.

A graphic designer needs to develop photorealistic Visualization is very vital to develop superb images of the non-existing products. With the achievable image in mind, an experienced renderer can get good results with raw rendering also.

         Correct rendering tool

There are so many options for rendering software available today that it may leave you confused which one to pick. Take little pains to make a right choice as a customized rendering software will bring speed to your work and you will be able to create astounding images. A tool must have enough features that can be intuitively used to boost our creativity and artistic skills and develop solidworks photorealistic rendering.

         Real world scales

It is very vital to understand the impact of scaling. If the units are not of right size, even the best lighting and best environment will make it difficult to add photorealism.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Some very common mistakes are evident in the rendering images. Any experienced renderer can identify these blunders easily. A few blunders are too much of light exposing the product so much that the features become overshadowed. The textures developed must be very consistent with the real-life scenes so that the images look consistent in exposure. No extra light or lights that face the camera. Attaining a good knowledge of the final product and techniques of rendering saves you the effort of putting in random things and developing something useless.


With rendering becoming prevalent in the gaming industry, real-estate products and more there is a pressure on graphic designers to render better images. Rendering is facing same challenges as were faced by photographers and cinematographers some 100 years back. But with examples from the world of photography, we know what to implement in rendering to deliver more photorealistic rendering. With the tools getting better it is easier and quicker now to get photorealistic rendering.

It may seem simple but attaining good results in rendering is not easy.
