  1. I am new to this forum but not to vray or 3dsmax. At the moment i'm diving in to faking gi. On my last project I had to render an animation of 2000 frames with GI and render it on an online render farm. The render costs were $1200,- it needed to be rendered in 2 days. Me and the client werent happy about that. Tried some fake GI on an interior project. This was my result. Quite happy about it. screenshot program I want to have precise control over the render and get as close to the GI render as possible. I've done a test with a simple red sphere and a grey floor. This is the result. how do you print screen The problem I can't seem to fix yet is how to create color bleed in a shadow with an omni diffuse without making the shadow brighter. So I only want to give the shadow a red tint. I can't change the shadow color since that would change all the shadow colors. It's quite a challenge to get it right. I've attached my scene with the sphere for you if you would like to give it a try and come with a better result. ps: I've searched this forum and picked up great tips for fake gi.

  2. This is Hans Holbein the Younger. Remember this guy because he's the father of all architectural visualization artists. You will probably agree that for the vast majority of the clients the beautiful picture is more relevant than its correctness and correspondence to the architectural project. That's why we are often asked to fake something, make it brighter or add reflections and stuff like that. Probably what we do now is closer to advertising than to architecture. We are doing pictures that sell the project. We can show boring architecture in such attractive way so I start to feel responsibility for what I do knowing that the real architecture will never look this way. But sometimes the future of the whole project depends on us whether it receive millions of dollars or not. So we add awesome lighting, glow, flares, aberrations, fireworks to make little white lie. Forrest Gump: "When I was in China on the All-America ping-pong team, I just loved playing ping-pong with my Flex-o-lite ping-pong paddle," which everybody knows isn't true, but Mama said it's just a little white lie so it wouldn't hurt nobody." Returning to this awesome painter, there was an amazing story. When Henry VIII wished to marry, Cromwell suggested Anne, the sister of the Duke of Cleves. Hans Holbein the Younger was dispatched to Cleves to paint a portrait of Anne for the king. Despite speculation that Holbein painted her in an overly flattering light, it is more likely that the portrait was accurate; Holbein remained in favour at court. After regarding Holbein's portrayal, and urged by the complimentary description of Anne given by his courtiers, the king agreed to wed Anne. On Anne's arrival in England, Henry is said to have found her unattractive, privately calling her a "Flanders Mare". It was not long before Henry wished to annul the marriage so he could marry another. Let's talk about it.
  3. I'm rendering an engineering style animation, and don't really think i am getting any great benefit from the bounced light of GI in vray, with just a big hit in rendering times for prepasses etc. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to light an internal white room with shiny metal vessels and tools, so that it gives the impression of GI, but renders quicker? Should i go back to the bad old days of 4 omni lights of varying intensity, with some vray area lights for shadows? D
