In order to get a great looking wireframe render there are lot’s of tweaks needed to achieve a high quality look. This tutorial by Stuart Christensen will help you along the way to create stunning wireframe effects. In this Part 1 of a 2 part series, you will see the evolution of the wirefame from low to high quality, and in Part 2 you will refine and composite the wireframe elements in After Effects and Photoshop and create a turntable for object/model rotation as well.
