Right now, there is an AA issue with unbiased renders. I'm working on it, sorry for the inconvenience!
I wasn't quite sure but I didn't think I ever had any AA issues with MLT in KT. Thanks, Chris.

Evening Sunset

This render uses an hdr global for illumination along with a combination of ies and twilight point lights for the canopy downlights and interior.
I used Bidirectional Path Tracing > 12 hours >210 passes @ 1500x821. I've included a shot of the SketchUP model setup.

Re: interior - first impression + update MLT

Yeah, thats very nice. The floor looks better also. MLT is good. There is a slight AA issue at the windows, could be to re-sizing the original?
Oh and thanks for the reply about the render times.

Re: Dual Vanity

I highly recommend getting a corei7 (8 threads!)... they are smokin' w/ Twilight
Yeah, I'm envious of you guys running those. :P It may happen sooner than later ;)

I'll see about getting this file to you to play with. Could be during the week. Thanks.

Re: interior - first impression + update

rcossoli, can you tell me how many hours this took to render using high+ from the Easy settings and at what resolution? It will be interesting to see the MLT render of this scene.

Re: Dual Vanity

Thanks for those tips, Fletch. I attempted a whole scene re-render using Med+ from the Easy but I estimated the time to be as long or longer than 11 hours. I then tried a test render of just the 2 light canisters and the 2 vanities nothing else. After 4 hours it had only rendered 1 3/4 of the light ...

Re: Dual Vanity

Thanks Federicospoltore. Yes I used ies lights above and an emitter to the right. The vanities material is set from the template mats-silver then set the shininess to 7.

Fletch, so are you saying High or High+ from the Express > Easy?

Dual Vanity

First try with Twilight. I rendered this scene with PhotonMap Med+AA0.3 @ 800x800, I usually use MLT. This took 11 hrs 37 min which surprised me a little as I thought it would be quicker.

Re: and the second impression - exterior

I noticed the upper utility wire on the left seems to disappear against the wood siding.

Re: First work with Twilight Render

The full size is very nice, shows off the details. How did you light this? HDR global, physical sky?
