Mini Cooper - Studio Render

Post by rangerrick » Sat May 11, 2019 12:36 am

I picked up this model by DennisP from the 3D Warehouse. I made some minor modifications
to siut my needs. As always the lighting takes the most time to set up. Lots of trial renders
with various lighting setups til I get something worth pursuing in greater depth.

This scene has an HDRI Probe as the background lighting.
An overhead light emitting canopy
Two spot lights directed at the wheels to add some fill
One spot light, placed behind the car, directed at the far wall for some background illumination.


This scene is not really an interior scene but more of an outdoor scene but I used no sun.
At first I tried Easy 8 Exterior Progressive but it was so slow I gave up after 1 iteration.
I found that rendering with Easy 10 Interior+(Progressive) worked well, 2 hours/50 passes/i7 6700K

Thanks all for your comments.
Jo-ke, that is an interesting overhead lighting grid. It creates some nice highlights in the glossy paint.

......and another......
