Golf Ball Modeling, HDR Lighting and Rendering | 3Ds MAX Tutorial

In this video I’ll be showing you how to properly model a golf ball and then create a simple scene and light it using an HDR environment map for photorealistic results.

You’ll also learn a useful technique for advanced selection of vertices/polygons, which may come in useful to you in the future.

Thanks for the tutorial…

I was wondering how you could make the white golf balls appear more glossy, I am in the process of creating white glossy housing for our product, and would like to see more reflection. Any suggestions….

@ Suresh – Hi!
I personally use Mental Ray and iray for my work, but I’m getting into VRay lately as well. Unfortunately not enough experience in VRay to make a quality tutorial.

Great video man! 🙂 Quick question: @ 5:46 you scale the ball down, but somehow I can’t “uniform scale” my models. I can only scale them at 2 axes at the same time and the other one gets deformed :/ Do you know how to solve this? Thanks!
