SOLIDWORKS Tech Tip – How a CG Artist Uses Visualize and Photoshop

This week’s Visualize Quick Tip is a special one! It’s a longer video showing a full end-to-end workflow using Visualize and Photoshop – just as a typical CGI artist uses to composite that beautiful marketing image. Watch as power-user Carlos Mendez shows us how he uses Visualize in his regular workflow, including the use of handy Render Passes for final compositing and adjusting! We’ll learn how he sets up his final renders with output settings and then uses Photoshop to combine the outputs to create a stunning final image.
