Thread: LW 10 furniture

  1. #1

    LW 10 furniture

    Some renders of recent furniture objects I've made. Trying out the linear workflow in 10. It's pretty cool.

    Great pics.

    I have a desk with legs not unlike the ones in the pic second from the left on the lower row. Except mine don't have the faceting.

    I really like that floor lamp in the last pic.

    Thanks. I just noticed that faceting...forgot to turn smoothing on.

    Nice renders!

    One note I would turn dithering off, because it's giving an unusual repetitive pattern, and add instead a slight film grain to simulate dithering.

    Very nice otacon as usual. Question -do you use in camera DOF or post?

    Thanks. This dof was in lw camera. Where is the dithering option? I know there is dithered motion blur, but that's turned off.

    Great work but you can see dithering in all your blacks. ctrl+f8 > dithering intensity. set both to off

    Interesting. I never really messed with that dither setting. I just did a test and it makes a huge difference to turn it off, especially if you are tonemapping very dark blacks. I wonder if it's better to just keep it off? It gets rid of noise, but I see a little banding. I've been seeing this noise in my images for a long time and I never knew why it was in there. This is a big discovery for me.

    I'd always leave it off. You can add small amounts of noise in post to remove banding or get the film grain look.

    Dithering/noise isnt a bad thing... its just that lightwave seems to use a repeating pattern which also happens to be too strong. Id prefer random noise at 50% of the default strength.

    Although I think the noise adds something to these, I think it is just too uniform.
    I'd love to see them without the dithering. The chair renders in particular are really nice.
