How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

The best cloud rendering services provider, Fox Renderfarm will share with you a tutorial about how to use KeyShot to create realistic ice.

Tip: To create the ice art shown in the figure, in addition to using KeyShot, we should also know how to create 3D models, using SolidWorks and Photoshop.

Modeling

Use SolidWorks to create a model. Since we are focusing on KeyShot rendering today, the modelling process will not be discussed in detail.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Import into KeyShot

Open the KeyShot and import the model into the KeyShot by dragging and dropping or by using the 'import' button. We'll see the entire model in white, and open the projects window at the bottom of the interface, where Boaz has changed his name to' glass 'and' ice 'to know what parts he's working on, then select all ice parts, right-click to select the' Unlinked 'related material.

Material

Change the material Of the glass to Solid Glass, and other selections remain the same.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Adjust material settings

Next, select an ice cube, assign it a liquid material, set the refractive index to 3, the external refractive index to 1.5, the transparency to 8, and the color to red: 220 green: 230 blue: 255.

Texturing

The ice will now become clear, but there is still something missing. Looking at frozen ice, we’ll see that it's not completely transparent because when water freezes, bubbles and particles in the water seep into the frozen ice. To achieve this effect, we have to set up bump maps and opacity maps, and we need to create textures in Photoshop. Open Photoshop and create a new blank document that is 5000X5000 in size and has a white background.

Then, create a new blank layer and place it under the background layer. Right-click the background layer, then select 'background layer mask', and click the 'Add Layer Mask button to set a mask on the White layer. The mask is used because the mask can be modified or replaced all the time without affecting the image layer itself. Next, choose a large multi-Thorn Brush, paint the mask black, and reserve a "frame" at the four corners of the page. Don't worry about the mask being completely black. We finally get a white frame without a background, similar to broken ice.

Save the created file in PNG format, and the texture is done.

Apply texture

In KeyShot, go back to the material tab in the Project window, click the "texture" tab, select the newly created texture file, set the "bump" and "opaque" textures, and check the "sync" so that if we want to change some attributes, the bump texture will be linked to the opaque texture; the new ice material is complete, and we can save the material to the material library.

Copy and paste materials

Return to the 'scene' tab and copy and paste the ice material into the remaining assembly.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Adjust advanced settings

The ice looks much better, but it's still not very transparent, because KeyShot renders lighting through materials, so we need to go to the settings options, expand the advanced section, and increase the default number of light reflections from 6 to 12. Don't just increase the number, because some rendering passes take a lot of time. Next, turn on global illumination and, if you like, add a nice dark "illustration" to the scene.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Application environment

This step requires setting up the lighting environment, opening the library, setting up a beautiful contrast environment, and selecting ' 3 points lighting high 2k'.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Adjust environment and camera

Return to the items menu, go to the environment option, and modify the settings according to your personal preferences. Instead of lighting environment, we can configure a color at the back of the model to a cool grey (red: 3. Green: 3, blue: 4), and "ground reflection" can also be checked.

Next, you need to adjust the camera. Go to the "camera" menu, click "+" to create a new camera, name it, and then click "enter edit mode" to set the parameters, including depth of field, according to your own preferences to create a close-up feel. By adjusting the aperture value, we can make objects that are not in focus more blurred but remember not to make them too blurred, just make them look real. When finished, tap exit edit mode and then lock the camera.

Set rendering quality

Next, go to the rendering menu. First, jump to the quality tab, set the quality parameters as needed, turn on sample values to get a higher quality rendering, and increase the depth of field value because we're using depth of field in this scene, and finally, set the 'Ray reflections' to 12.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Rendering

Return to the output menu, set the image size, the higher the pixels are, the better for printing, and you can get pixels equivalent to centimetres per foot by opening a new document in Photoshop and changing the size setting method. You can also choose to save in TIF format to get an image without a background. Finally, click render and wait patiently. The rendering process may be a little long.

How to Render Realistic Ice With KeyShot

Final render

The final effect has come out and it took nearly 10 hours of high-quality rendering. It took so long because of the complexity of the layered transparency, or it could be because the sample values were set higher. In general, Render Time is also affected by the opacity, depth of field, and other visual effects of the assembly.

And this is part 2, part 1 please click here").5. Refine the material of the plastic. First, reduce the gloss of the material to make it a bit rough. Then use the stain node to make the texture of the spotted plastic. The density, size, and shape of the spot can be freely adjusted in the options.Then in order to avoid the pure black spots being too rigid, you can add a camouflage node to control the colour of the spots. If you feel that the spots are not dense enough, you can also add a stain node. So far the material adjustment of the bottle body is completed.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 9!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 96. The texture of the translucent shell. Although the hand sanitiser and the shell are both translucent materials, there is a big difference in texture. The shell can obviously feel the texture of plastic, and the hand sanitiser has a liquid texture, so I used plastic for the shell. Blur the material for simulation.First adjust the colour to a suitable yellow, then increase the blur value to lower the gloss, giving the material a matte texture. You can also increase the sample value of the material to make a more delicate translucent effect.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 97. For the hand sanitiser, I directly use translucent materials. The production method is the same, first adjust the colour of the material, and then reduce the gloss to make it look thicker. Finally, I turned on the global illumination option.Finally, when the shell and the hand sanitiser are displayed at the same time, you can see a very comfortable translucent effect.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 9!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 98. I simulated the texture of the metal part with a preset material of metallic paint and increased the refractive index of the transparent coating at the bottom to enhance the metallic feel. The button on the bottle directly copies the spotted plastic texture made before and then deletes the extra nodes.LED lights use self-luminous materials. The texture of the liquid level display panel can also be adjusted freely, which can be matched with the product as a whole.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 99. The texture of marble. I used a set of marble texture maps that I made before. I use the 2D mapping node and adjust the size of each texture, and then fine-tune the colour of the marble, and add noise texture bumps to further increase the details. The refractive index of the material is increased to make a highly reflective texture.10.

Fox Renderfarm, the best cloud rendering services provider, will share with you a tutorial from 3D artist Twelve on how to render the Lotu soap dispenser with KeyShot 9. IntroductionIn this tutorial, I want to share some things about rendering with KeyShot9, so I did not make a model but used a made thing (this Lotus soap dispenser is designed by the n-other design, a design firm in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The material used in this product is very natural and comfortable, especially suitable for rendering exercises), so the focus will be on the production of textures, lighting and rendering.Since the product is positioned as a sanitary product, it is possible to use a commonly used material such as marble when making the floor material. At the same time, the spotted plastic material of the product itself is also very compatible with the marble material, which will be more comfortable to put together. Rendering1. I made two camera angles. Here, I try to use a focal length close to orthogonal to make the product's visual experience tidier. This product does not need to make a very exaggerated perspective effect. You can make a copy of the product to make a richer composition effect in Camera 2.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 92. Start lighting production. I created an environment first. The environment where pure black is not used here is to avoid black spots on the product. Then pull out a main light source on the left side, and a smaller light for projection, creating a texture of natural light.Then make a faint fill light on the top surface of the product, and at the same time, considering that a highly reflective marble material will be made for the ground later, black shading should be added to avoid ground exposure.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 9!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 9!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 93. The light processing from another angle is relatively simple, but in order to create a delicate light texture, the main light source is illuminated from the left and rear side of the product, the direction and hardness of the projection are controlled, and then a supplementary light can be added to the left and right contours.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 94. Start making texture materials. I added a light yellow plastic material to the bottle body and directly toned it. The colour can be adjusted according to the colour you want, and the overall colour tone I adjusted is warmer.!How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 9Part 2, please click: How to Render A Lotus Soap Dispenser with KeyShot 9(2)").
