LC#44 Getty Bewnchmark Challenge
while waiting for a wonderful scanned human character from a well renowned website since in Italy it’s quite hot and I was reading the latest paper about SIGGRAPH 2016, I’ve decided to create just a few small images that represent some technical challenge and can be used as a benchmark for your favorite render engine. At the end of the challenge I also ask if it is possible for you to share your final and textured model so we can create a library of the best scenes to use them for comparison purpose. Let’s see more in detail the challenge
Eggs + Porcelain: Multilayered reflections. How well does your favorite rendering engine holds up to multiple bounces required to create these effects?
Gelato: Foam, reflections, thin and thick materials all behave differently when it comes to light. Reflections on the glass, the SSS materials, and caustics from other glasses. How far can you can push the limits of your favorite rendering engine?
Glass Jar & Coins: Glass reflections and metallic reflections. How does your favorite render engine handle the bounces of light between glass and metal materials.
If you intend to use references (recommended), make sure to include a copy of the reference image(s) that you use to allow others to provide critiques and comments in context to the reference image(s).
Also as always
