Week 13: Use Adobe Dimension to create a Perfect Packaging Showcase

Create a realistic 3D mockup with a scene/background using Adobe Dimension.

Beginner

+

Use one of the scene backgrounds in Dimension, add one pack and add a label/decal to the pack. Make sure the lighting and shadows match elements in the background image. Preview and render your scene.

Intermediate

+

Use one of the scene backgrounds in Dimension, or a solid colour background, add multiple packs and add a label/decal to the packs, showing colour and/or material variants. Make sure the lighting and shadows match elements in the background image. Preview and render your scene.

Advanced

+

Use a solid colour background, photographic background or a pattern background, add multiple packs and add a label/decal to the packs, showing colour and/or material variants. Play with packs at contrasting angles and heights. Make sure the lighting and shadows match elements in the background image, if relevant. Preview and render your scene.

Time Allocated

+

30 Minutes for Beginner: add a scene, object and label to your object/pack, make sure lighting is realistic. Preview and render your scene*. 60 Minutes for intermediate: add a scene, multiple objects and label to your objects/packs, make sure lighting is realistic. Preview and render your scene*. 60-90 Minutes for advanced: use a solid colour background or pattern background, add multiple packs and add a label/decal to the packs, showing colour and material variants. Make sure lighting is realistic. Preview and render your scene*. *The preview and rendering stage does not need to fit into the allocated time allowed - a higher resolution image will take longer to preview and render.

Design Goals

+

Create an unusual composition of 2 contrasting elements in one image. The contrast in scale, texture or unexpected placement can be used.
