In this installment of our Tip of the Week series on how to Work in a 3D Space our resident expert and Professional Product Manager, Lilly Vogelesang, will explain how to Render 3D scenes in Harmony.
This week’s video is 13:09 minutes long.
Lilly provides an overview of the scene created in the previous video of this series. This is followed by an explanation of the the network modules used for this scene and what’s going on with them when you import 3D models. She also talks about importing multiple osb’s onto the same layer and swapping them.
The next topic discussed is a long one, rendering out the final image using the 3D modules Render Maya Batch/ Render Maya Batch Server. This is followed by setting up environment variables to allow a handshake between Harmony and Maya. Lilly recommends you do this by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. She also provides a solid list of resources to help setup the environment variable and let you understand the process and technicalities required.
Finally, Lilly details the procedure for adding the Render Maya Batch Server module in the network and explaining the process required to render.
The video concludes by showing an example of a project showing a real 3D space and an animation.
