"Architectural visualization live online seminar"
Graphisoft has announced their next live online webinar and the subject is one close to my heart.
This "extra work" was partly an outlet for a neglected part of my being while mostly spending time on documentation of the next and the next project. Make no mistake, I love doing well documented and detailed drawings and specifications, but fiddling with render materials, backdrops, furniture and landscaping to dress up my model to near perfection is more like a "love sport" than a job. Hours of mindless dreaming and "free flight" of the creative spirit.
For nearly my whole career I used to do all my renderings from start to finish in ArchiCad. No Artlantis, Pov-Ray or any other external render engine. Just me pushing ArchiCad to it's utmost limits, doing re-runs of a single scene till it's time to accept that we have achieved our full potential. The time was of no concern.
Then came the Lightworks Render Engine in ArchiCad 9. That was like a brand new bycicle to a 10 year old!
Man that was so much fun . . . I could do so much more in terms of lighting quality and anti-aliasing . . .
AND THE SPEED!! oh boy did I have fun (some times getting paid doing that :-)
Beta testing ArchiCad 17 is exciting and I expect some major changes for many of our users in terms of workflow, standards and production output. Our local industry has been in turmoil the last 3 years+ with totally new legislation regarding Energy Efficiency in Buildings (NBR Part-XA & SANS204) being implemented not long ago. Not everybody has adapted fully yet. Many are complaining. Others are taking advantage of new opportunities. ArchiCad 17 will take our work to a whole new level of detail . . . and yes, it might mean a new learning curve for those that were slow to get into "the Energy Efficiency thing". Graphisoft is really listening to the users and keeping up with the changing industry by giving us what we need and much more.
All this actually makes me very excited for the future of ArchiCAD and BIM in South Africa specifically and curious about what the agenda for this webinar will be like. Expecting to see and hear new things to add to my
Plus-list for 2013. Why don't you come and join us for this live event. Details below . . . see you there.
