Another Rendering Example

Maggie has been doing some pretty incredible renderings for her project, as I mentioned (and she demonstrated) in the last staff meeting. Just to showcase some of those, and give a comparison of how you can take your renderings to a new level of awesomeness, here are her updated images!

The “improved” version of these images started as the CineRender Indoor Daylight Medium Physical preset with a few minor adjustments, like turning lamps on. None of these images uses any photoshop post rendering adjustment.

Default CineRender Indoor Daylight Fast Rendering:

01 1BR Common Room

Updated objects, new surfaces, lamp elements & adjusted rendering settings:

1BR Cottage common room

Default CineRender Indoor Daylight Fast Rendering:

Barn Bunkhouse 01

Updated objects, new surfaces, lamp elements & adjusted rendering settings:
Barn bunkroom entry

Default CineRender Indoor Daylight Fast Rendering:

Barn Bunkhouse 02

Updated objects, new surfaces, lamp elements & adjusted rendering settings:

Barn bunkroom bed elevation

Just a little attention to detail, the right objects and leveraging the lamp tool makes a huge difference!

MATCHING CINERENDER TO INTERNAL ENGINE

If you apply an image as a surface to you internal engines surface settings verify the image file name has no “special” characters; they don’t play well with CineRender!

In the below image you can see the surface views perfectly in the internal engine surface preview, and even applies to associated surfaces in the model without any issue.

Internal Engine 1

Now when we open the CineRender by MAXON Engine Settings and Match Settings > CineRender to match from Internal…

CineRender 1

the preview blacks out and the view will not render. The rendering window will open and run for about 7-8 seconds then finish with a blank screen.

CineRender 2

The solution is a simple one, in your library manager verify all images to be used in renderings have no special characters (\ / , ‘ ” _ | – etc.), the jpg or png should be named with letters, numbers, and spaces only! You can save the offending surfaces to your desk top, rename and reload. It may also be worth the effort to verify file size and location in the embedded library at this time; in the interest of maximizing file efficiency and minimizing file size.

NEW CINERENDER SAMPLES FROM AC18

This is really just a show piece to share some of the great work that has been quickly produced by Boyce and Rob using an ArchiCAD 18 study model to produce quick and beautiful renderings. They adjusted a few of the rendering settings and created a variety of warm to cool feeling images of a single room. Adjusting some of the surface settings allowed them to create the reflective surfaces that represent the glass shower partition and glass clad interior walls.
