Heres a new interior i just finished up. I started off with the leather couches and built up from there. Trying to make a good looking leather material is tough....it took a lot of tweaking. I wanted to try and make the scene look as realistic as possible. No Fprime for this one, rendered with lightwaves interpolated renderosity. Tell me what you think!

Holy big sofas! That looks excellent otacon!

Can I ask what interpolated settings you used?

:eek: That looks really great, you are certainly pushing these renders out, you must have a tonne of patience to do so...

Nice image :bowdown:

Thanks. The settings on all my interiors are pretty similar.

Interpolated radiosity
Intensity: 100%
Indirect bounces: 1
Rays per evaluation: 6x18
Tolerance: 0.7
Minimum evaluation spacing: 15mm

I have a lot of time on my hands these days, so im trying to take advantage. Im already thinking about what to do next...:D

Nice athmosphere and good attention to detail. Now the nitpicking : The floorpattern is a bit to large and the shadow on the wall from the lamp on the left is a bit irritating. And i'm not sure about the specular/reflection stripes on the vertical parts of the couches... Otherwise nice image and interesting raydiosity settings. So whats next ?

At first I thought you were trying to pull off an actual photograph on us. That is a great render!!!!
Maybe in 5 or 10 years from now, I'll also will be able to render something like that. (maybe)
Again, stunning work!!!

Can I come over and read on the couch? I'll clean up after myself!

Looks like an awesome place to be. Problem with animation, what I see in pictures, I'll never be able to afford!

Great job man. Awesome realism.

This is really nice. Excellent work, nearly photorealistic.
That's interpolated radiostity? I have never gotten a result like that without monte carlo. Awesome.

Very nice render in terms of details, materials and lightning.
But I think, towel, guitar, books under the table and trumpet on a table are not appropriate in this scene.

Well folks, he's done it again. I'm starting to get jealous.

Is that cat for real?

And im not sure the cat it for real, but i sure believe it is.:D

Yes!! Please!!
I would love to find out how you set up your lights to make it look so Realistic.

Really great, ....as always you keep the competition ;) very high in terms of quality... superbe... I really like the mood... as for the lighting, I would slightly lower the light the further you go from the window... coz the light near the window looks same level as the light near where the camera is supposed to be (the LW Cam)... you're right , leather is pretty hard to texture, I find, it really depend on the lighting, some textures of leather I did are only looking like leather (well kind of...) with the proper lighting, if I change a little bit, oups, it start to look like plastic...

:D Someone wants to try making a good leather shader...:D (joking)

Overall, superbe work Otacon !

Happy Sunday !;)

always interested in seeing how someone else goes about lighting interiors, I find them the most difficult things to do correctly.

Alright. I'll post them a little later.

Hey Otacon, thanks for the tips, we really appreciate it. Have you ever thought about having your own tutorial website? With your expertise I think you would be good at it.
Again thanks, and can’t wait you see more of you 3d-art.

Hmm, i'm not sure why you use raydiosity with that lighting setup. You must get good results without raydiosity too.

otacon
04-25-2004, 06:43 PM
Good results yes, but not the realistic results that im going for.;)
Ive thought about a website, but i dont know much about how to set up stuff like that.

great work, really cool that you posted your light setup!
the LW comunity somehow reminds me of the Amiga scene...

Looks great. Maybe you could dirty it up because computer modeling tends to make models too clean some lumps and bumps in the couch (just a hint).:)

Lovely image.. although I think the guitar is out of place.. :)

If it were my livingroom - the guitar would be an essential item so it doesn't look out of place to me. ;)

Lovely work - thanks for sharing the layout grab and lights image.

:cool: :cool:

Outstanding work! I can't criticise that at all..... wish I could do something that good :-)

You have a really nice lighting setup, almost monochromatic but also very stylish. Superb work.

Very good, like the light a lot!
And textures are great. The book under the table and guitar seem to be out of place. There's not enough "stuff" and "dirt" in the guitar, it's too clean. But overall it's a beautiful picture with great warmth, like it.

I'll have to take a closer look at those light settings, but thanks a bunch for posting them.

I have 2 comments about the original render:
1) The area rug seems too perfect. No scuffed edge or creases, folds, etc.
2) The seam across the front of the seat cusions on the leather couches is distracting. It may be "right", but it's still drawing my eyes.

I see nothing else that I would futz with. Beautiful shot.

Yeah, but the rest of the room is so 'clean' that maybe the person is obsessively tidy. I knew a guy like that - you were scare to sit down in case it creased the cushions. We got a dog, it would take more than a scuffed edge to show our rug. ;)

Yeah, agreed, happens in real life too, at least in CG it can be fixed. Nuthin' worse than a badly made cushion that shouts at you every time you see it. Now, we need a 3D model printer than can do soft furnishings and wood. :p

It really is a lovely image by the way, did I mention, I hate talented people? ;)
