  4. Thanks everyone, yes I'll have to remember I can change the amount of hinges next time. @KayNordby -Yes, the full render was in Chief and then I did a few post production things in Photoshop. Mostly with the lighting. Thank you so much for the lovely complement!
  5. Ever wondered how close 3D Renderings can get to an actual photo? Check out the rendering I just created using Chief Architect software for photo realistic results. Big thanks goes out to Jo McKeown at Great Spaces! in Alpharetta, GA for letting me use her beautiful kitchen design as inspiration. Thanks again Jo! For more information on design services, please contact Jo McKeown at Great Spaces! For more information regarding 3D Rendering services, please contact Laura at Inspirational Interiors. Thank you for viewing!
  6. Thanks Graham, great information. Unfortunately, I've let some of my previously rendered images run over night and they look no different than hour 4. However, I'll check on some of your other suggestions and see if that helps. Thanks again!
  7. @ TheKitchenAbode I think it was a total of 10 passes in that time. It's a really detailed kitchen though with lots of lighting and stainless steel appliances. Plus I'm using photon mapping to get my stainless steel to show up so that setting is suppose to take longer. On another note does anyone know what legacy shadows are (in preference settings) and what legacy compatible texture mapping means under default settings? Also anyone know what hardware edge smoothing does? Just trying to understand the settings and if they could help fix my problem. Thanks, Laura
  8. Hi Guys, Thanks for all the suggestions. I've been able to get them to look better but their still a little grainy after 3 hours. My computer is a new Mac OS X, has a great video card and is top of the line. Tried rendering with photon mapping with less lights and different preference settings. Like I said better, but still a bit noticeable. I'll post an update if I still encounter issues going forward. Thanks again for the advice. -Laura
  9. Hi Guys, I need help figuring out why my interior ray traces are all coming out grainy and pixelated? Does anyone know what settings I'm using that could produce this effect. Photon Mapping, Caustics, etc? I should mention I have X7 and leave my ray traces for 3-4 hours. I come back to an ok picture but they're still slightly grainy and pixelated. I've experimented with lighting, materials and settings. Watched tons of videos, searched the knowledge base and I still can't figure it out. Also, I sent customer support this question who referred me to the videos. Yeah... those videos are not updated (versions X1 and X3 are a bit different than X7) sorry customer support but on this one you were not helpful. At this point I'm very frustrated and have no clue how to fix this problem. I've spent so much time on this I could scream. Please help!! Thanks, Laura
