Render Vs. Photo Apollo Architecture, Jonathan Beals (3D)



Title: Render Vs. Photo Apollo Architecture
Name: Jonathan Beals
Country: USA
Software: 3ds max, After Effects, Maya, mental ray

I've always wanted to try matching an architectural interior, so I finally gave it a go. After a few months of working in my spare time, I finally came up with this! I also wanted to learn iRay and test it's interior rendering ability. Unfortunately, I had to stop the render after 24 hours on a gtx 580 and clean up a lot of fireflies. Hope you like!

Rendered in Iray, graded in After Effects and Photoshop.

Really great work, I couldn't tell which is which, but I'm guessing the one on the right is CG, it looks a bit cleaner.
And such a funny coincidence, I thought you posted twice and did a double take going back to see the other one

Hahaha, yea really crazy coincidence. You are right, the one on the right is the cg one.

you did a really superb job on matching these images up. A few grunge maps on your timber surfaces and they would be practically identical. Nice work.

Thanks everybody! At the request of some, I have added some imperfections. In the below render, I added some grain, chromatic abberation, lens distortion, and dof. Hope this makes it look even better!

Wow! Great work on this. If this was given as a test, I think I too would guess that the one on the right was the CG one. It looks a little blurrier, and you've maybe got some excess bounced light under the table. But you've done a fantastic job of matching the photograph.

Superb work, nothing more than can be said, except its pretty damn perfectly 'imperfect'.

Stellar Stuff my friend.

Thumbs up

wow, really "real". I'm also planning on doing an interior based on a photo but my skills need more practice... hope to reach this technical level soon. Just two questions: I see you've used Maya for this project when or where do you use it? for texturing? and what building is it? just curious. Thanks for sharing.

This is incredible, they are so close to being exactly identical! Brilliant work

Hey thanks for such a great compliment! I used maya for modeling, and getting texture placement correct-mainly because I am much more proficient in maya. The building is called Foo House, you can find the series here:

Thank you sir for your reply. I thought you used maya for texturing... I hear that some 3Dartist sometimes use it for texturing... don´t know why, it seems to be more intuitive? Again thanks for sharing this great and inspiring work.
