Does that mean you have more time to be creative?
Takuya Ebisawa: Yes. V-Ray gives us more time so we can achieve better quality. Thanks to that, we get more gratification from our customers, and also we take on more projects.
A lot more projects than before?
Takuya Ebisawa: Not that many more. Before we introduced V-Ray, we finished projects to meet deadlines, which often meant that we could only get images to a passable quality. Now, we create the best quality images first and foremost, then take on more projects if we have the time. So the number of projects hasn’t increased all that much.
Could you tell me more about your post-production work?
Takuya Ebisawa: The retouching work is very limited compared to the past. However, we put plants, people, and other objects into the scene for realism.
As well as modeling tools, which software do you use?
Takuya Ebisawa: We use image processing tools like PhotoShop, Illustrator, and sometimes After Effects for movies.
