What will you learn in this VR course?

Archviz is short for architectural visualization, and it refers to the 3d graphics that are used to visualize architectural projects for the purposes of design communication, marketing, etc.  It can involve rendering still images, or computer generated 3d animations.  More recently, arch viz artists have started to integrate virtual reality with programs such as Unreal Engine 4.  Other professional grade software packages used in the industry include 3dsMax, Vray (render engine plugin), and Photoshop.  These each serves a different purpose in the arch viz artists’ workflow.  These programs are similar to what is used for creating video games, movie special effects, and other computer graphics.  Arch viz is the art of applying these tools, and artistic techniques, to illustrating and animating architecture.

As a student of this program, you’ll be able to learn and create a rich, interactive and highly immersive VR solutions to different industries like  (Architecture, Entertainment, Gaming). You will be engaging with dynamic and fun to learn live projects. During this programme, you will become familiar with essential SDKs and APIs of PC and mobile platforms.
