Learn the essential techniques to present computer-aided designs in print, video, and the web.
- [Instructor] Hi, my name is Aaron F. Ross. Welcome to CAD Presentation Techniques. In this course you'll learn the core concepts and methods for presenting computer aided designs in their best light. We'll take an overview of aesthetic and technical best practices for visualizing 3D designs in print, video and the web. The course covers general techniques of computer graphic imaging relevant to design visualization, including lighting, virtual photography, image manipulation and animation.
You'll see how to present 3D models effectively and with aesthetic appeal, helping your designs stand out in presentations, reviews, marketing or advertising materials. CAD has revolutionized the design process and computer graphics empowers designers, artists and engineers to visualize their work in ways never before possible. Let's begin our exploration of CAD Presentation Techniques.
