My monitor - Finished
show user profile  Stianbl
So, first step into making some more intresting scenes. :P

At least I included some standing for the monitor. Next step would be a room with a desk, but at least it's a small step :)

btw: I still dont get clean renders with glas, even though I cranked the settings up a lot. Hmm, need to do some more reading and testing :P

Well if you gonna rip their name, you could've at least bother to find their logo :P
And bweh, shiny plastic shows fingerprints and generaly looks awful
You mentioned the glass error already...

Other than that, nice image

EDIT: oh, that's a floor reflecting on the screen, not a part of the Vista screen? Yeah, add that to the list too then

Can't help with the glass as i don't use vray. I would say that the samsung logo looks funny and the screen is too reflective for me though.

edit/ Beaten to it by 4secs. :)

could it be that you just love to create useless stuff that would just be hard to maintain yet do not have any function? :)

... just think about cleaning that glass table every month. What is it good for? So that the monitor doesnt touch... the table?

go Windows 7!

^^ First off, yes, the logo isn't the same. Did a quick search for the font, but guess I'll use the monitor for the next render. And the monitor aint that glossy in real, I just thought it would be a nice addon, even though I like the matte glas better for use. But glossy looks better as a display, in my opinion. But I'll do another render without that too ;)

And about the reflection, yes :P I use an "open house" to make soft shadows, and with reflections like that you can see tha open back-part of it. Sucks. :P Will have to experiment on scenes where I cant see the reflection of any open sides.

About the glas-table.. Well, many use them, but then it's on top of another glas-desk. Anyways, I thought it would look nicer than nothing. But I guess not? Well, I still think it does =)

Anyways, thanks for the crits, will do another render.

I love the render. Only the reflection and the AA issue on the lower glass let it down.

As this is only a wip shot of the final I shant say much about this image but can you try to for at least just this once not do that exact same lighting set-up as every single other render you've done? yeah its nice, it works, move on to other ones. you cant learn by repeating over and over what you already know.

that sounds realy bitchy but I wanted to be bitchy ok!! jeez! :p :)

Thanks nik :) Glad to see someone who liked it too :) But dont get me wrong, your crits is what makes me better. So thats a good think too =)

Byt one thing about the AA nik; What settings would I use to render out a scene like this? When thinking of AA filtering. As I always get problems when handelig edges of glas, or sharp reflective edges (metal and stuff).

EDIT: Trying out the Cook-filter now. Set at 2,5.

One note to nemo; Should I think of the problem of cleaning the glas when I want to show of a model I made? :P I would say it looks better this way, than with a wooden plate or something. And about the glossy monitor (frame), thats how it is :) Just a bit more black :P Again, thanks for the crits though. Rendering out a new render now. (still with the glas thingy, sorry ^^

Thats true :) But then again, if I where to sell this monitor, I would have something nice to put it on to display it somehow. Anyways, will experiment on these kind of things. The main object here was the screen, and next time I'll do something other =) But I'll note what you said :)

Heres a new render, using Cook filtering. Looks a bit too smoth overall, and didnt get rid of the AA problems of the glass. Removed the glossy screen, and fixed the logo ;)

Didnt notice your post there grotey. Was answering the other posts, while I missed yours.

I hear what you say, and I will do my best:P But for now I'v just been testing out some textures and made some more models. And rendering takes forever, even though this is a fiarly new computer:P

Getting some tuts on other settings now, and will use that as a base for experimentation. :)
And I could seriously need some more information on the VRay render settup. Read a lot of stuff, but cant get it to work as I want.

Heres a render with Area AA, set to 1,5. Looks a bit better, but I tweaked a lot of settings, and it didnt fix the problem.

Anyways, these are my final renders for now, untill I learn something more. (of this scene/model)

No, it's an 245B. (or BW, or T. Cant really remember. The order says T, my monitor says BW, and in the settings it says B. :P

Anyways, I really like this monitor. It was very cheap compared to other 24", and so far I love it :) No ghosting og anything like that, and the colors are much better than most other lcd's. (only compared to mates monitors). It's not an high-end monitor, so sure there are better when it comes to color. But I, doing a lot of work in photoshop, 3ds max, after effects, and so on, have never felt that something's missing. :)

yah thats the little brother of the 305t, theyre both S-PVA panels, which have the broadest range of color reproduction and deepest contrast out of all the panel types. Perfect for graphics, good choice m8. The 405T is simply the 30" version that Im about to pick up here in the next few days :)
