Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


For what it maybe worth... Moore's law has a flawed premise before teh buss issues, imho. That it's a linear in some respects... we are seeing what seems to be a regular increase by ratio of powers/years. There are no cycles that are linear. Rate of diminishing return / parabolic rate of growth accurately represent cyclic progression through time. I think it's still moving fast, though slowing - starting to proceed toward the top of a cycle... if nothing else there are going to be physical & quantum boundaries that will reel in the rate of progression and slow it down.

Agree the render is the best part and maybe bringing cool ideas to life don't take any where near as much blood seat and tears as it does in the real world.

I agree the hardware will come in line faster than the software.

Powerful software that takes over a lot of what people now do is way more expensive than anything I've seen for construction (7 figures at least) and runs on systems costing $50K for a starter system. I could see a design service that's used by a lot of firms being able to afford something like that, but in general it's tough for me to imagine the design software guys being able to foot the bill for the software development - probably 9 figures in R&D expense.

I'm not sure whether to be optimistic or pessimistic, but the rendeering part of all this is the most exciting to me.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


I created this in sketch up and rendered it with shaderlight. I have never actually worked on a barn, but a friend gave me his basic idea and I went a little crazy on creating a model. I finally discovered a need for a faster computer.

Try google sketch up to start. Its free and pretty simple to work.

I started using sketchup a few months ago and even bought sketchup for dummies. I usually avoid those books like the plague but this one was great. I learned the whole program in about a week and shaderlight is a plugin that works inside of sketchup. Both are easy to learn if you are decent with computers.

I rushed it at the end. Just spending too much time on it and sent it through. A little dark. Lighting sucks, general environment settings.

Bottom line great looking renderings....

Curiosity....
It is a bit grainy, which has a good effect tho, can you render longer or up the samples in your rendering program?

Yes, I did this really quick if I let it go longer it would be much better.

What kind of application are you using to view it? I'm looking for "viewers".

This is a small one I just did. Revit for the design, vray for the render, PS for post processing. Lighting is still off.
