camera matching and lens
show user profile  debodeebs
ive tried matching camera to photo but having no look, im using the perspective match and the kitchen units are with correct dimensions but i cannot get even close the the angle this picture is, could it be that the images was done using cgi and at incorrect measurements?

That image above looks cgi to me.
Remember when camera matching your perspective can be altered off of a natural lens.
If I shot that it would be with a 16-24mm, but a lens that isn't a tilt shift would give you stretched out verticals unless that kitchen was huge but looks only around 20-25ft
Get the floor and walls in place then you should be able to see where the perspective distortion lays.

Move another plane up to the counter top after the floors and walls are in, see if that plane goes across the top the the island and is also level with the back counter. Adjust perspective distortion until it matches.

thank you, i have done what you have said and still no match so that render cannot of been modeled correctly.

would it require more then just a sun and plane lights in the windows to achieve this look?

Purely a sun alone can achieve this look as far as lights go. You also need an armful of skill.

well i know a big part is how the materials are produced but please tell me how i am getting this result with just a sun with intensity only at 0.75

camera's aparture is 4 and shutter speed is 100 and iso at 600

the scene is dark but the windows is way over exposed

Vray? I typically do not use a sun stronger than 0.01.

Lower the sun intensity, lower the shutter speed to eliminate burnouts

aperture 4 shutter speed 100 iso 600 vray plane intensity 15 but way too over exposed again, the vray planes intensity has to be lower then 3 to keep exposure down and another strange thing is that the color mapping type doesnt affect anything even having the burn value right down to 0.05

Have you tried the new perspective match?
Other than that, don't touch Vray sun standard parameters, if you want a natural look.

ok sun is at 0.01 and gi environment override is at 10 its gotta be a bug or something, i dont want to keep adding loads of vray lights i just want to try just using the sun and maybe just the 1 vray light to help bounce more light.
