View Full Version : Bathroom Render

08 August 2010, 11:29 PM
Hello, I'm currently working on a bathroom scene render. I'm strongly focusing on the lighting at this current stage of work.

One of my biggest issues right now is my lack of computer power.
This was supposed to be a high quality render of my lighting, just to get a good feel, i spent 2 days wandering around a city, even slept outside for one of the nights, only to comeback and find out that after 2 days its only 14% done.

But we all have to work with what we're given.

Here are some previous weaker render.

Wire Frame/Screenshot
And here is the latest working render.
Setting: Final gather precision -Draft Image Precision: Medium. 480 x 270
I haven't messed around with the ambient occlusion yet, and i'm still adding more models as the project goes.

Only one of the vases are close to completion, take a guess.

Also there is a mental ray omni light inside running on a low setting about .5, but i'm going to remove it since i like the darker feel with the light beaming in.

Nice job, you've improved the contrast nicely in the first image. if you post your render settings I might be able to help you reduce your render times. I'd guess that your raytrace settings are slowing you down but I won't know until you post the settings. In the end, it's possible that your machine just won't be able to handle a render with advanced features.
