I am delighted that my new training series “Carrara - Realism Rendering” is now available from the Infinite Skills site:
http://www.infiniteskills.com/training/carrara-realism-rendering.html

It will shortly be available on the DAZ3D Store too.

These videos are a shorter set than my previous titles, and hence are only $49.95 (list price).  It covers render settings, lighting and materials for achieving maximum realism from your Carrara renders. These techniques can be applied to any scene and can use all of Carrara’s many features.  After the introductory “theory” sections, I go through four real-life projects to highlight how to achieve best results for a variety of subjects, spanning vehicles and other objects, exteriors and landscapes, interiors (with their tricky lighting!) and finally a human character with settings for skin, eyes, hair, etc.

Although this image is not used in the set, it uses the same techniques so you can judge the quality of what I can achieve.

Great news, Phil.

I have the infinite skills Ipad app that is supposed to give me their library on a monthly subscription.  That is how i have watched your Carrara Beginners and Carrara Advanced videos.  The new course does not show up in the Ipad browser or search engine yet. 

Just an FYI.  There might be another step that Infinite Skills needs to take to add it to the Ipad library.

Sounds good, I’ve gotten a lot out of your previous tutorials.  I am a fanatic about realism and actually try to think more like a director than an animator.  It doesn’t always work out, but on the bright side you don’t have to buy pizza and beer for the cast.

It requires an app update, this has been submitted to Apple and has to go through their approvals procedure, which can take anything from 2 days to 2 weeks.  I have been assured it is on its way though!

Phil,

Does it cover rendering in layers to get better images by chance?

Hi Milo, It really only covers using the Depth layer to apply depth of field and other effects, sorry if this falls short of what you hoped for.

maybe you should increase the ambient light to brighten up shadows, or increase the sky light imho, they look too dark as if there is no GI
