ArchiCAD 18 rendering: World Cup 2014 Ball

ArchiCAD 18 Rendering ExampleA lot of people (users and non-users) are curious about ArchiCAD 18’s new rendering engine. Here’s a video showing a quick ArchiCAD 18 rendering and celebrating the approaching end of the 2014 World Cup. Not too shabby, eh?

I’m fairly sure this video was done by the same awesome Graphisoft employee who did this Star Wars themed video for ArchiCAD 16 (and who I got to meet last month in Budapest). I’m going to go e-mail him about rendering that old TIE Fighter model in ArchiCAD 18. That would be super-freaking awesome.

So, has anyone had time to do some good renderings in ArchiCAD 18 yet? Share some links below.

    yeah, rendering is so easy… just clickety click click and you get a photo realistic soccer ball! But in all seriousness this is a great addition to the software and I can’t wait to spend the time it takes to master the new rendering features and surface setting options… I am already enjoying the ability to render in the background while I work on the model, plans sections, etc…

      The out of the box scenes, especially for interior render are really impressive for a quick render. I had a play with it in the weekend and without little to no effort on my part I was able to produce better internal renders of my own projects, than I was ever able to before (that being said I was awful at producing anything good internally, so guess that feature was aimed at user’s like me)

    The video is a bit fast…can’t wait to get into the new rendering of AC18 though. Hope
    it is easier in terms of the surface/materials settings than Lightworks was

    I too am anxious to get familiar with it. I often use 3 different rendering programs to get presentation work the way I like it. Great job GS!
