Max exports to the QuickTime Viewer Direct (now)? LOL Of course it does, AutoDesk Bought RealViz aka Stitcher.

Use to be able to use QTpro and assemble a Pano, single image and Box, for the "viewer"....Free. It appears that it no longer does. Why I asked.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


This is my first real crack at doing a real model.

This is a house my wife and I designed. I am going to attempt to import this model into layout and make construction drawings for permits too.

Pretty much the mirror image of the plans I chose for my own home,although
I adjusted the roof line a bit as the building went up adding a second floor.
I also removed the front dog house and put in shallow dormers to give
the room over the garage added headroom,then bumped out the
living area to have my chimney inside the living area and use it
as a "heat sink" for the wood stove and solar gain from the
south facing windows behind it.This bump out also kept the front profile from
getting overpowered by the size of the garage.

Here's the end product:

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


A collaboration between myself and another CT member to produce some master bath cabinetry. This was the initial rendering sent. There is some design tweaking to do, but overall I like how the render came out.

I don't ever want my clients to get use to a rendering like that. Way to much time to get the result. Looks awesome.

I agree Leo on both points, Kents rendering looks great, I just can't invest that kind of time.

I normally give them something like this,enough so they can visualize what we are talking about. This is done in 20/20, and takes less than 5 mins to set up the shot,render and save as a jpeg that can be printed or easily sent to the client.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


Looks great Kent, Sketchup-vray?

LOL
Only crits would be the WINDOW TEXTURE & the finish on the cabs needs a little frensal based reflection and specular;looks chalky-in comparison to the shiny tile.
...oh right this ain't cg architect
LOL

One does not "need" fancy renderings and it flies in the face of costs and such... But there is NO Substitute for the WOW factor and no substitute for the customer satisfaction level when you can follow through and make it just like the picture-priceless.

There can be benefits to using higher lever renders with custom cabinetry and especially higher end clients, that the accounting spreadsheet will never show.

Leo is an old skool master, 20/20 is great... but Kents renderer is better than yours and mine is better than all y'alls. Tho like my dad always said it's not size it's how you use it

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


Mine is eCabs and the renders suck. But it gives the client more than enough information to make the choice.

Here are a couple for an office layout.
All done in Chief with just ten passes per render, about 1.5 min. to complete.
Nothing great but sure drives the design intent across.
An I know there is no leg at the end of the table to keep it up.
The table is magical.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


Just an FYI, for those naysayers, it took me about 10 minutes to set up the scene. I hit render and went to get a sandwich for lunch. When I came back, it was done. About a 20 minute render maybe.

As time goes along, technology gets better. Rendering only gets faster. They now have cloud based rendering and you can be done in no time. Sorry, but I'm not resting on "good enough" renders. Most times I send just a simple sketchup view if it looks OK. This I wanted to throw it in and see what happens.

Kent,
Was that rendering using the Autodesk Cloud, or was it from the Revit program?
Thanks,
Gary

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


does anyone here design in Softplan and render with an outside engine? I really like the softplan trial I've been playing with the last few days and am thinking about purchasing the software. However I think the renders are a little weak in comparison to Chief X5. I have X5 but really want to start using Softplan. Is there something that isn't too expensive that would be a little better rendering engine?
