(MUSIC) Hi. I'm Gabriel Corbett, and welcome to SolidWorks Rendering with PhotoView 360. PhotoView 360 is a rendering and animation plugin, available to the professional and premium versions of SolidWorks. In this course, we'll look at creating photo realistic renderings that you can use to showcase your designs. I will start by going over the basics of a rendered scene and develop that scene into fully rendered images and animations. We'll be applying materials and textures to parts and assemblies, setting up scenes and backgrounds for our images and adding in lights to highlight key features and remove shadows.
We'll then go into more depth and learn about working with transparencies, and reflections on glass and other materials, adding in cameras and viewing goes to best frame our shot. And working through a motions studying and preparing for an animation. Finally we'll review the file types and saving options plus look at some of the options for streaming video. We'll be covering all these techniques and tools plus plenty of others. Now let's get started with SolidWorks Rendering with PhotoView 360.
