Bentley Announces Publication of 'Rendering With MicroStation'; Book Details Every Aspect of Rendering Needed to Produce Photorealistic Images and Output.

EXTON, Pa. -- Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced the availability of "Rendering With MicroStation," written by Jerry Flynn, the world's leading MicroStation visualization expert, and published by the Bentley Institute Press. The book is a product of Flynn's years of experience helping hundreds of firms and thousands of AEC professionals bring designs to life through photorealistic rendering directly within the design application.

"At last, Jerry Flynn's vast rendering knowledge has been put to paper," said Brian Parker of Cooper Carry, Architects. "This book is a must-have for anyone, of any skill level, who is rendering and visualizing in MicroStation. Beginners will be led step by step through basic rendering techniques and onward to advanced visualization procedures. Professionals will love having the book on the shelf as a reference guide."

This latest addition to the Bentley Institute's line of architecture, engineering, and construction publications serves the rendering needs of architects, civil engineers, and designers. Based on the Bentley Institute course of the same name, it covers every aspect of rendering in detail, including cameras, materials, lighting, environment maps, and rendering settings.

Through illustrations and hands-on exercises, readers will learn how to:

--Use environment maps, sky cylinders, and procedural textures effectively, and to apply photorealistic atmospheric effects

--Create photorealistic materials such as water, glass, trees, grass, brick, and stone

--Apply different lighting techniques for rendering any interior or exterior scene, day or night, including sunset and twilight setups

--Achieve photorealistic results by creating custom materials

--Apply advanced rendering techniques for creating lighting solutions using ray tracing and particle tracing

Also included are a host of tips on generating quality still images, network rendering, panoramas, 3D content in PDF files, and much more.
