Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


A lot of Chief users are using Kerkethia (if I spelled that correctly) and do some very nice stuff.
I believe they have a free version and a pay for version.
Also, you can still output to Pov-Ray and do some nice raytracing with that.

Yu know, I got the SoftPlan trial also, I think it is the first time they have ever allowed an actual trial version to be released. SoftPlan has some good stuff going for it but I think I will be sticking with Chief.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


Andy, I know you are a pretty big fan of Chief but I think it just does not jive with my thought process. I've tried to learn it and to become proficient but it just seems like a battle every time I use it. I'm really liking where Softplan is going. They seem to be on a better track than they used to be. I just need a little better rendering than they can currently provide. I have no idea how to spell Kyrkethea either but I've seen the name come up more than once. I'll have to look into it.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


There are some terrific renderings here!

Here is one that is a bit different. While we do 3D based modeling, sometimes we can communicate nature better with hand drawn stuff.

In this case everything was drawn and colored using a tablet in Photoshop.

Created this for a road company in So Cal. Helped them win a $67 million grade separation. AKA bridge project.

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


T Wax -I used ACAD to model most of it. A little revit. Navisworks for sequencing and animation. Google earth for site file. Camtasia studio for editing. In retrospect I forgot I have a full version of adobe premier pro that I should have used for editing. Camtasia did fine for web output, but not great for high res. Res on you tube is ok. I did not use photo realistic rendering due to time constraints. Probably have 120 hours in total. Built the entire model from prints. Built each phase per the plans. (mostly )

Re: Post Up Your Renderings!


I may have missed them but I haven't seen any videos here, and I always feel things look a little more 3D with a little motion. I'm teaching myself Home Designer Pro (cheap version of Chief). Here's a small project I'll build next summer. Rental cabins in pilings driven 20' into permafrost. Designs are not final, but they are pretty cost-driven.

Build time goal is 3 months, working mostly solo, subbing foundations, drywall, plumbing and electrical.

Nice walk through video but I did not see any brown bears rooting around in trash cans.

Now that would be realisttic in Fairbanks.

Beta-testing the newest release of Chief Architect. Using a knock-off of a stock plan as my test bed.

Pic with foliage is from stock plan web page. Their rendering, not mine. Other pic is of my model, a raytrace using Chief. Lots of work to do in materials, foliage placement, color, lighting, etc.

I though SB renders well now, but v-22-A makes v-22 look like kindergarten drawings.

I have a basement build out and kitchen to design. Can't wait to try the new version out on both of them.
