I´m trying to learn Max 7 Mental Ray, so I choose this living room to do it.
This living room is lit by 4 MR area spots, one in each opening and intensity of 0,65, color near white. There´s a direct target also, acting as sun and intensity 2,5, pale yellow.
In my opinion, this image is too bright and seems that contrast is missing.
My logarithimic exposure control settings:
Mid Tones: 1,0
Physical Scale: 3.000
Maximun Num. Photons per Sample: 10.000
Maximum Sampling Radius: 5,0
Max. Depth: 3
Max. Reflections: 3
Max. Refractions: 3
Average GI Photons per Light: 2.000
Global Energy Multiplier: 1,0
Final gather: off
I hope you can help me, once I dind´t delivery to the client yet.
Thank you so much.
