Create 3D Architectural Visualizations of Buildings and Scenery with New Book on Blender
Packt is pleased to announce Blender 3D Architecture, Buildings, and Scenery, a new book which teaches users to create photorealistic visualizations of building exteriors and interiors, the surrounding environment and scenery.
Blender is a 3D animation program released as Open Source software. It can be used for modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, rigging, water simulations, skinning, animating, rendering, particle and other simulations, non-linear editing, compositing, and creating interactive 3D applications. It runs on all the important operating systems (including Windows, Mac, and Linux).
This book teaches users to create natural scenery, landscapes, plants, various weather conditions, environmental factors, building materials such as wood, metal, brick, and more. They will also learn how to add people to different scenes as well as other objects to an already existing photograph or a video making it easier to increase its realism.
Game designers and movie makers will see how to use the final models to create simpler scenes and sets for use in 3D games and movies, where real-time rendering is necessary.
The book focuses on developing expertise on the architectural aspects of the tool. For more information, please visit: http://www.packtpub.com/create-3d-architecture-buildings-scenery-with-blender/book

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
