I rerendered an old model in yafray to test a few new features. Imo it looks much better than the original.

here is a 640-480 sucky compression version.
a 1024-768 link is underneath the picture (larger download)

Yeah man! It does look way better! Although I don't know if the grain really benifits this picture in any particular way. Maybe put the scene on a table too or the floor, so it just doesn't drop off at the edge of the grey lego ground piece. It would really add to the sense of reality...
Anyway, looks real good

Thanks for the comments on the enviroment. Next time I'll do such a project, I think I'll go for the indoor. Never done that before decently...
About the noise : sorry, but I just love noise. I know many people don't like noise so I didn't put to much in it. Normally the noise is way heavier...

I like it, and the noise doesnt bother me at all. good PR scene IMHO.

How did you model that? Did you go over doing piece by piece in a 3D program or is there a Lego program that exports the models after they are done?

Anyway, Looks extremely nice dude! Cool stuff...and the noise looks good ;)

I've always wondered how people model legos too.

Nice job! :thumbsup:

Same for me ;)

The render and model is pretty nice :thumbsup:

No, it's quite simple actually.
I modelled all the different lego pieces, and so actually built a library. The next thing I did is take the guide that comes with a lego model, and just start building like you would do with real legos. There are ofcourse a few complications, but they are easily solved.

Wow, great work on the model and render. I'm doubly impressed by the fact that you hand modeled the lego parts.

You might want to check out , though. There are actually a couple of Lego CAD programs out there that come standard with huge libraries of Lego and Technics parts.

Very nice. I actually like the noise. Gives the idea of a scanned photograph.

Hey! I skipped this one at Elysiun because legos and cars both leave me saying feh. But I saw it here, so I figured I'd take a look.

Really nice. Mmmmm... the Yafray grain. I'm used to seeing it now, so it doesn't bother me. Cool modelling technique and a nice end result. Try rerendering with some transparent legos like that person did with the x-wing a while back. Show off the construction a bit.

Again, very cool.

Wow! This isn't the first time I see someone model a lego car (or something with Lego) in a 3D program, but it's easily the best Lego rendering I've seen so far. I didn't like the grain that much though.. Maybe a little too much. Try something in between. Is the grain from the renderer or is it added in post?

Anyways I've seen some great Vray renderings lately. Especially this one. It makes me want to check it out! :)

Now that's some set of legos. Love it. And the render time if I may ask Mr. hannibar? You are the Yafray master man.

Yeah photon lighting is beautiful. I hope the coders of these wonderful photon lighting raytrace renderers can get some better speed increases in the future. Well that's what render farms are for in the present time.

Thanks! The grain was added in photoshop. Surprisingly there wasn't very much grain from the renderer, and since I just love grain, I added a bit in photoshop.

I let it render overnight, so I don't know the exact time, but it must be about 2-3 hours. Considering that I used HDRI and high AA setting, I'm very pleased about the rendertime.

YOu can use the anti-noise filter in YafRAY and that leaves a very kool look too :D not grainy but very sharp and crisp :D
