NOTICE

Firt of all, thank you for finding my page, I hope you like what you've found! 
This is a notice in case you would like to get in touch with me. Since I rarely update this site and I don't monitor my messages here on a regular basis, I would like to ask you to contact me at drea@dreahorvath.com or drea@ddcreations.eu, so I can respond ASAP and no messages are left unnoticed.
Thank you for understanding!

*********************************************

Long time no update.... In the last couple of months I've been abandoning dA. If you tried to contact me via this site and haven't responded to you, I'm so sorry for that! :blush: 

But I have some great news; we have recently updated the Audio Corner at our Studio, so - after several written step-by-step tutorials published in online and offline media - I was able to record a complete, in-depth video training in high audio and video quality. It's called Creating a Spring Mountain Landscape in Vue 2014/2015

Spring Mountain Landscape box

This 160-minute-long training is divided into 6 sessions, focusing on different steps of the scene creation process. To make the tutorial even easier to follow, the sessions are further divided into shorter parts.

This training material can be purchased at D&D Creations; for further information about the content of this tutorial, visit this page.

Feedback is always welcome! If you liked the training, and if you would like to give my confidence a well-needed boost, let me know! If you have any ideas or suggestions for upcoming training videos (because this is just the beginning!), help me improve. Thank you so much for your support and enjoy the training! 

If you have any questions, the best way to reach me is via drea@dreahorvath.com or drea@ddcreations.eu

And of course, keep up the great work and keep this community alive for me! :) :)

Simplicity
I simply call this "Simplicity". :D
I rendered this in 16 minutes at 2K.... but before that, I pre-rendered the sky in a couple of hours as a 4K EXR panorama, and used it as a skydome for IBL in this scene. For waterscapes like this, where you see a significant part of the ocean horizon, environment mapping can work really well, since the horizon is a lot clearer, and it makes the image more realistic.... and of course, it's way faster to render. :)
The scene was built and rendered in VUE (including the entire sky), the only thing I painted in Photoshop is that slight lens flare, I enhanced the Sun's reflection, and also did some really minor color grading. But since I really liked the control I had over the EXR environment map, I barely had to do any color grading.
I got the wooden log from Quixel Megascans... their library is insane!
Inspired by some similar photos.

Another Foggy Morning
Now that the night temperature is dropping heavily, we're going to have more and more beautiful mornings when the mist gathers near the ground and slowly rises. And if we had mountains (or even higher hills), this is how they would look like :D

Bedroom with a View
The scene was inspired by a photo of a similar bedroom, just the exterior was different. I always find semi-interior scenes a good challenge - to find the right sub-ray options, trace levels, internal reflection levels etc... to render multiple layers of glasses, an exterior behind the glass (in the same scene, not composited), using daylight portals etc... this particular scene also required some trials and errors to find the best and most optimal AA strategy. Since the exterior is behind a glass wall, I found it more natural to go with Soft strategy (an overly detailed crisp look would look disturbing, at least for my eyes), but this time I didn't get away with relatively low subrays settings... also had to boost the shadow quality to +4 (and I'm still not entirely satisfied). Took a couple of test renders, but here is the final result. 

Since I didn't want to steal the attention from the landscape, I left the interior fairly simple. Most parts were modeled and textured by me, the rest (bed, table, chairs) were downloaded from tf3dm.com

(Inspired by) Juvet
Inspired by a similar photo of Juvet Landscape Hotel in Norway (Google it!), the filming location of Ex Machina. The goal was viewing the room and its glass wall from the outside. While you can see the reflection of the environment pretty clearly on the wall, you can also see a bit of the interior through the glass. This is something I’ve never attempted before in Vue (and not just in Vue), but I’m quite happy with the result.

Foggy Rural Sunrise
Another one inspired by a photo. Can't say too much about it, other than I still don't like working with splines in Vue...
