First room Render (Need C&C)
show user profile  Wil_
Well I have been modelling in 3DS for about 3 months, and rendering in 3DS for about 2 days. I know zilch about lighting or things like that. I found a demo of Vray and thought I might aswell try it out. This is my first attempt at a room and also my first attempt at lighting. Post C&C please.

First impression: you seem to have floor boards that are 3 feet wide :O

quite ok for first lighting attempt. Now you need to do tons more of stuff like that to become familiar. For architectural renderings you must be very specific about the details you're showing. If they're incorrect (not found in the real world) your image will loose realism immediately. Your window is straight from the cartoon world. Good luck!

Thanks del3d, the window is really basic, I just used that to get some good shadows and lighiting in the room. I will edit and update this thread :P

My first thoughts exactly lol.

I also see splotches on the wall and ceiling. Up the sample thingy?
Put in a decent window and some... what's the word? Those boards you put along the edge of the floor. ...and you have a scene.

Edit: These!

LordPlanzar, way ahead of ya! I have added skirting board, currently working on windows.

I don't know what you mean by the sample thingy, though?

skirting boards, and perhaps some coving, use sweep for those.

The rays/sample settings. Higher setting = higher quality = more even distribution of light.
It eats rendertime, so find a balance.

I've massively increased the contrast on your image so you can clearly see the splotches (and the watermark)
Think of it as throwing paint on the wall as opposed to spraying. The finer the nozzle, the better the result.

Oh dear that is blotchy. I had the image sampler on low and subdiv's on 30, so I should change this to high?

I dunno, haven't played with lighting much myself, and nothing at all with Vray. Try medium first and see if that's good enough.
Oh I did try sime Light Tracer in Scanline with my unfinished mech, just to see the difference. This is with no indirect illumination, 1 photon bounce, and 2 bounces. More than 2 will take for-freaking-ever to render, and will probably be overdone anyway, so no more than 2!
It is blotchy, but this is just a test to show myself what indirect illumination does.
