Twinmotion and Quixel Megascans archviz week coming up

October 26, 2020
If you’ve ever experienced Twinmotion, you’ll know the tool is all about creating architectural visualizations quickly from scratch—without having to go through a lengthy learning process. Since Epic Games joined forces with Quixel Megascans, however, there’s even more reason to love the software: it now includes free access to the highest-quality 3D scans on the market.

To celebrate this, we’re pleased to announce a whole week dedicated to Twinmotion and Quixel Megascans! Kicking off on Monday, October 26, we’ll have five days of online events, video drops, and social media activities showcasing how Quixel Megascans can enhance your Twinmotion projects.

For those not aware, Megascans is the world’s largest and fastest-growing scan library, packed with premium-quality assets. It puts thousands of 3D scans at the fingertips of architects and designers who can use the assets to populate and enrich archviz scenes created in intuitive visualization tool Twinmotion. 

It’s a match made in architect heaven, and one we’ll be shining a light on next week. Let’s take a look at what’s coming up.

Monday, October 26: Enhancing Interiors with Megascans

We’ll start the week off by taking a look at an animation showcasing the interior of a house that has been enhanced with Quixel Megascans assets. Created in Twinmotion 2020, the video provides a great insight into how Quixel materials, 3D objects, 3D plants, and imperfection textures can be used to boost the realism of interior archviz scenes.

The animation will be published on the Twinmotion YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn channels, so be sure to keep an eye out for it.

Tuesday, October 27: #CommunityHighlight

Twinmotion’s social media channels will be lit up with stunning archviz renders created by our community using Twinmotion and Megascans on Tuesday. 

If you have an archviz render created in Twinmotion using Megascans, show it off to the world by posting along with the #CommunityHighlight hashtag on the Twinmotion Official Community Group on Facebook
