gorgeous room Marcos. When can I move in . Good job.

12-17-2003, 07:54 PM
beautiful lighting.
the floor seemed too reflective to me, but maybe this is the way you want it to be.
great job.

12-17-2003, 08:34 PM
Very nice! I wish we could see some close-ups. I too think that the floor needs to have it's reflectivity turned down a bit. I also think that the light from outside would make the entire room a little brighter. But overall I think the image is a real winner!

12-17-2003, 08:40 PM
great work. no crits here.
the floor is kinda perfect I really can't see why everyone would say turn it down. I guess its the curse of having a really good render, that even the slightest reflection is noticeable. cause on some renders you can chew the reflection all the way to 100 and it does nothing for the image.

Really nice work man! See Max is the bomb!

12-17-2003, 09:08 PM
Very nice!

I love the warm feeling it has.

12-17-2003, 09:12 PM
Amazing work, and all done with standard lights!!!:bowdown:
Rich interiors, very nice modelling and texturing, i´m amazed.
No crits.

12-17-2003, 09:12 PM
this is really excellent work,
the lighting is nice, however the light above the fireplace could be toned down as its too definate.
the floor is also too reflective.
other than those minor things, it looks great.

12-17-2003, 09:15 PM
that's awesome. what does your light setup look like?
one thing that bothers me though is the strong glow on all the lights. if you could soften that a bit, especially on the small lights i thing the image would be more successful.

rock on

12-17-2003, 09:31 PM
Thats incredible given your lighting setup? How d'ya do it? :thumbsup:

12-17-2003, 09:42 PM
am I getting too tired from watching lotr too much before watching the third, or did I really see this plugged before? I certainly saw this before, could also be in the wipsection though on second thought. This way or the other, I still think the image is a little too white/yellow. floor, walls, ceiling, all the same colour. not my style.

But it's certainly coming really close to photoreal! :thumbsup:

12-17-2003, 09:48 PM
The rooms look very nice and inviting, as if ready for an open-house.

I would love to see much larger resolution versions of these images!

12-17-2003, 09:49 PM
Very amazing work with standard lighting !!
nothing than what said EdHarriss because floor looks a little bit like a mirror.

12-17-2003, 10:00 PM
Overall, I think its simply amazing work. It really is photorealistic :) Goes to show what you can do with regular lights too, no brazil, mr, vray blah blah blah. Sweet work man, really pro stuff! personally I like the floor. Looks freshly waxed :)

I like the fist pic better of the two. My only crit in the second one is the highlights on the tops of the chairs and the reflections on the floor are unnaturally strong which kinda blows the effect.

12-17-2003, 10:07 PM
Are you sure that isn't a picture. Because... DUDE... thats awsome!

12-17-2003, 10:13 PM
Great and lots of work....awesome dude..


12-17-2003, 10:18 PM
great job! :applause: very photorealistic, good job on lighting

12-17-2003, 10:26 PM
Great lighting!:thumbsup:

12-17-2003, 10:26 PM
yeah I agree with requiem....the glow on the lights is a bit much.

12-17-2003, 10:27 PM
very nice image, lighting isnt easy but you ave made it look it.
IS your computer a beast to get out test renders so quick or have you spent a long time on this.

12-17-2003, 10:29 PM
great images. i think the actual glows representing the downlights on the roof are a bit too strong. if they are inset in the ceiling, most of the lights "glow" would be contained within the fitting and wouldnt be so prominent from a side view.

beautiful work tho.

12-17-2003, 10:35 PM
Incredible, tell us a little more on how you achieved such a quality

12-17-2003, 10:45 PM
Expose master material to be sure!:eek:

12-17-2003, 11:13 PM
I want to see some close-ups on some of that furniture

12-17-2003, 11:16 PM
Honestly, i would have to see a larger image before i make any comments. It's really easy to get away with a lot when the rez is so tiny.

Don't get me wrong, though. I'm sure it looks as nice at larger resolutions, i just want to see it :)

12-17-2003, 11:18 PM
As I said before, amazing work, Marcos! :applause: :thumbsup:

Guys, checkout his other thread for some closeups: http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=106147 :drool:

Hey! GREAT work!!!
Tu mora só a 280 km de distancia e eu fui ver teu trabalho só aqui, ehaehaheaeha
Mas sério muito legal. Muito realista, até se tu tivesse usado plugins!
Tu trabalha com 3d em POA? To indo passa uns tempos aí e se sim, gostaria de visitar o estúdio, produtora....

12-17-2003, 11:49 PM
Beautiful work here!
I'm particularly impressed that this was done with standard lighting. Exceptional job on the lighting. My only crit has been stated a few times already, but I do feel the floor is just too reflective. If you like the look, maybe some subtle scuffing would help it look more realistic?
Personally, I'd like to see a camera fly through.

12-18-2003, 12:01 AM

Is that radiosity or light-tracer or what?

12-18-2003, 12:26 AM
You're crazy!!

OMG!..this is superb...i cannot see the different...:applause:
good work...:bowdown:

12-18-2003, 02:54 AM
Is there any post work done in photoshop kinda s/w, cuz there is a glow kinda thing in the little chair nearby the window,
Its really Nice render, very close to reality,
Good work, my friend:thumbsup:

12-18-2003, 02:56 AM
now that it has been mentioned, yea, good pick up on the arms of the chairs... but all in all, I feel that had this shot been posted on some modern homes web site rather than a 3D forum, the average viewer would have no idea that this was not a real room... infact I don't mind admitting that should I have seen this while cruising through some of the realestate sites, that I wouldn't think twice...

good job on all the hard work put in here :thumbsup:

12-18-2003, 03:04 AM
I use Standard Lights with MAX 4, and none of my renders have ever looked like that. :eek:

What's the principle behind using the standard MAX lights? Is there a certain technique or rule that I should apply?


12-18-2003, 03:17 AM
Too freakin' good for your own good, hombre!

Just the way I like it. Great work! Who needs photons?

Me, hehehe.

But seriously, your work shows the power of applying the art of good standard 3d lighting principals. With good lighting and texturing an old raytracer like Truespace 2 or Ray Dream can be used for beautiful realistic professional 3d renders even now.

12-18-2003, 07:49 AM
Hey, I can see the image :wip:
Post a mirror

12-18-2003, 08:43 AM
at home...:) i just can second the others before me: this is stunning!!!! expose master stuff!

12-18-2003, 10:37 AM
Great work Marcos. Definitely one of the best rooms i've seen here.

Grande trabalho Marcos. Definitivamente uma das melhores salas que vi neste fórum.
Sou de Porto Alegre também. Será que você não poderia me dar algumas aulas de 3D ? :D

12-18-2003, 11:11 AM
Great work ... i think that this is one of best interior render i have seen. And i love artistic lighting, versus pure radiosity lighting solution.


12-18-2003, 11:16 AM
That looks great, but did you use the Radiosity or Light Tracer solution at all? The soft shadows suugest you did, but if you did not, that is bloody good for a non-radiosity/GI lighting set up.

12-18-2003, 02:44 PM
wallop!!! If in had those skilllz i'd show off, more!!! :thumbsup:

12-18-2003, 03:34 PM
Garma: you're not getting all that tired....

He posted this one (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=106147) about 3 weeks ago - it's similar, but he's expanded it a lot for this one.....

12-18-2003, 03:41 PM
maybe it's standart render....i can't say nothing..but
can you answer on one question only:
how you got that shadows ? As i know it isn't standart
it's similar global illumination effect.
or you did paint soft shadows on special place in texture mapping?

12-18-2003, 04:50 PM
:beer: :beer:
great work..... my words are not enough to express my face expression when i was realising this is made with standard lights.

very impressed...
:surprised :surprised

faking gi or radiosity is not simple, you need a truck full of lights sometimes upwards of 50, I have no expertise in this area, but I recommend just rendering using gi, and then trying to recreate using standard lighting.

12-18-2003, 07:22 PM
Nice work! :applause:

12-18-2003, 08:38 PM
Olá Marcos.

Parabéns pelo o seu trabalho, excelente!

Coisa de mestre em iluminação.


Helo Marcos.

Congratulations for your work, excelent!

Master ilumination thing.

12-18-2003, 09:16 PM
Excelent Work!!..no plugins?...please give us some tips & tricks or a little tutorial for to learn about how to illuminate so good.

Congratulations :thumbsup:

12-18-2003, 10:31 PM
OK the more I look at this the more I want to see outside and the removal of all the hot areas near the windows.

It's almost as if the world is blowing up outside.

...which would make a nice animation. :)

now tell us the truth which slr camera did u use.

just kidding

can u explain how did you manage to get the realism.

great job.



12-19-2003, 06:13 PM

Destaque mais que merecido!!!!!


12-19-2003, 07:51 PM
i don't think i would put the tv where you have it. it looks like between the couch and tv is a walking path and that would be annoying.

awesome image though

12-19-2003, 08:16 PM
when you say no plugin. then i am very amaze with your litting skills.

12-19-2003, 11:27 PM

Great stuff, I was just wondering how long your rendering time was for the wide image with the roof lights:thumbsup:

12-26-2003, 09:26 PM
without plugins it's really a wondering work

i would like to say one thing , if its wrong i'm sorry bcz i'm only a beginner.

I can see the omni spotlights in the roof ceiling(glowing), but there is no reflection of that light in the floor.

12-26-2003, 11:30 PM
Lovely room and bravo for the lighting! :thumbsup:
