CineRender Subtleties

There are many presets in the CineRender settings of ARCHICAD, and most of them work really well out of the box. But you can make some very minor adjustments to the settings without loosing the overall character and quality of the rendering, but only changing the general lighting and feel of the final image.

An example of this is in the preset sky. The following images were both started from the Indoor Daylight Medium (Physical) preset. The first is an out of the box rendering:

A very nice rendering, but the color felt a little warm and pink to me. So I switched the weather preset from Clear to Friendly Afternoon. The result is a slightly cooler, almost blue feeling space with deeper shadows.

If you do find a slight adjustment you prefer to the out of the box settings, be sure to save it as a preset to quickly get back to those settings in the future.
