Bathroom Vanity and Toilet

Post by Fletch » Fri Apr 07, 2017 10:26 pm

Test with natural light and light portal combined with interior lighting in the same view

Rendered using Easy 09, Easy 10, and Medium 4b from the altAA settings.
I combined the Easy 09 and 10 into a single image to reduce noise and gain the lighting of both types of rendering.
The 04b rendering has nearly zero post-pro, but did have some contrast boost.

for FULL RESOLUTION image - right-click image and choose "open image in new tab".

good point.

I tried that often too. combining #3 and #9 to reduce noise and time. (time is my biggest enenmy)

How do you merge them in PS?

:^: I think I like the white balance in B better, but the overall lighting in A better.

Merging multiple images is a great idea. I'll have to try that more often.

Well, Easy 10 takes a very long time to clear, but even shows caustics from the mirrors bouncing onto the adjacent wall (if I turn off all the lights, and only light with sky).

I ran Easy 10 at 1600px x X resolution, then I ran Easy 09 at 1604px x X+3px resolution, then resized the Easy 09 in photoshop to be 1600px wide. Then in Photoshop set the Easy09 layer to 50% opacity. Done. :hat:

usually I erase the plane surfaces of the #9 render to get the clear surfaces of the #3 render and preserve the nice light of the #9 render

Looks great! Out of curiosity, how many passes did you let these images render to?

Sorry, but I didn't look at the passes. I am guessing between 60 and 100 for the Easy09 and Easy10 render settings.
