VRED Design/Pro – Beginners Course

This is a beginners course mainly for you who work with visualization. Autodesk VRED Design/Pro uses data created in other applications. Here we focus on creation of presentation material, photorealistic product images and real-time presentations and animation.

VRED Design/Pro – Beginners Course


VRED Design/Pro is only a visualizer. There are great opportunities to visualize still images and even animations. We use both Raytracing (rendering) and OpenGL (real-time visualisation). This course focuses both on the creation of presentation material such as photorealistic product images, but also on real-time presentations and animation. We work with imported CAD data. VRED is perfect for VR.

The steps you will learn include basic navigation in the program and its menus. You will also learn CAD data import, material or texture management, lighting, camera settings and rendering. This is a beginners course that provides an understanding of how the program is structured, what tools are available and how they are intended to be used.
