Need great renderings for your project presentation or website?

Recommended Posts

Hi Chiefers!

 

I know that CA X8 has really improved its out-of-the-box rendering capabilities.  But sometimes you just don't have the time or patience to fiddle around with all the nuances of producing a great -- not just OK -- rendering.  That's my job!!  I've been perfecting my rendering skills since 2007, and I'd be happy to turn your plans into awesome visuals.

 

And decorating!  Who has the time or interest for that?  Me, that's who!  I can finish your interiors to your specifications or use my own excellent taste to stage your rooms and spaces in the most appealing way.

 

So let me know how I can help your projects really WOW.  To sweeten the deal, I'll even give anyone who mentions ChiefTalk my 15% "friends-and-family" discount -- that's right, we're all family on ChiefTalk.  :-)

 

Below are a few examples of my work.  Visit my website, http://castleview3d.com, to see more.

 

Hope to hear from you soon,

Kathleen

As someone who dabbles in rendering from time to time, I must say your work looks GREAT!   Very nice.

Johnny, all modeling was done in Chief, except for some of the landscaping, and all rendering was done externally, in Thea.

I had to ask since I cannot get lighting to look like this inside of Chief. Great work for sure.

Thanks, BPT!  I think 3D has been "in" for at least 9-10 years, since that's how long ago I started my rendering business.  :-)

 

On most projects I charge by the hour, so the cost depends on how detailed/large the project is, and how much of my "beautification" work the model needs to become awesome.  I give Chief users a special price break when they send me their Chief model to render.

 

I'd be happy to provide some tutoring if you're interested.  Email is the best way to reach me.

      I have a home design that I am working on in home designer professional 2020.  Would eventually like to get it completed and then a set of construction prints for Nashville, Tennessee.  whidh means I will need floor plans and elevation views as well as a plot plan.  I have the plot drawn with some contour lines in the drawing I have developed.  The house faces about due west (not the best but that is the lot I have.    I have attached a picture of what I want the exterior rendering to look like.  Looking for job bid.  The plan file is zipped and attached.  Following needs to get done and then a front rendering and the file returned with the updates.  (Can pay via paypal etc)  
      1. Master bedroom vaulted ceiling following rafters up to height of 12 feet then flat across.  House rafters will be 2x8 or 2x6 depending on span.  
      2. Fix the roof planes
      3. Shed roof with 2 in 12 slope over the back deck.  Extends out about even with the master.  This is asphalt shingles.  Ceiling will follow the rafters
      4. The peaks (side and front larger dormer) should be board and batten not sided, the rest of the house sided, the foundation walls are stone
      5. Make sure chimney carries through to the roof from fireplace in family room.  Chimney is stone where it can be seen outside of house.
      6. The basement foundation walls connecting to the crawl space (unfinished area) should be only 5' tall (it would just be in one area)
      7. Front porch is to have a metal roof, rest of house is asphalt shingles (charcoal color but not black)
      8. Stairs should be 42" wide and should be fixed . Want them closed underneath. Somehow I cant get this to look right
      9. Need a front rendering showing view of the house for presentation to client
      10. Need file updated to reflect these changes and has to be readable with Home Designer Pro 2020
      11. Floor deck for both the first and second floor are 11-7/8 TJI with 3/4 subfloor (I think I have this right).
       
      At any rate, looking for quote to get this done.  Thanks for looking.

      Hi everyone-
       
      In the last several plans I have created in chief X11, using a Camera View with a Reference Display of the As-Built, I have the As-Built Reference Display file set to render as a Glass House view. The Glass House referenced model displays, but without any of the dark outlines to show the features of the model. I have included an image of a remodel I am working on currently, where the referenced As-Built shows as a faint blue shape. Nothing like the examples Chief gives of a reference display, below.
      Any thoughts on what setting I might be able to change to get the 'outlines' back. I have also included an example image from Chief I found online, which has the desired 'outlines' in black.
      This does ONLY happen when I'm using Glass House View as a *Reference Display* in the plan I'm working on. If I were working on a plan and change the rendering technique to Glass House, the outlines are visible. This only happens in Reference Display.

      Hi everyone-
       
      In the last several plans I have created in chief, using the reference display in a 3D view (referencing an as-built plan overlayed onto the remodel plan) with Glass House View, the Glass House View is very transparent, with no 'outlines' around the items in the drawing.
      It makes it quite hard to see what the existing vs. remodel.
      Any thoughts on what setting I might be able to change to get the 'outlines' back. I'll attach a photo of a kitchen I'm working on currently below, showing how faint the Glass House View is, vs. an example photo from Chief I found online, which has the desired 'outlines' in black.
      This does ONLY happen when I'm using Glass House View as a *Reference Display* on the referenced plan. If I were to delete the reference display plan, and just change the rendering technique of the Plan file I'm working on to Glass House, there is no problem. The 'outlines' show as desired.

      Hi all,
      All mirrors from the catalog(s) that I am placing show a bright yellow cast and pixels on the reflective surface of the mirror itself. The mirror IS reflecting the room around it, but the bright yellow color and pixelation never resolves itself. The first photo is the 'Standard' camera view rendering technique, where the yellow is at its brightest. The second attachment is 'Physically Based' rendering technique, where the yellow is faded a bit.
      I had no problems in X10, but this issue has been in all of my plans so far using X11.  
       
      Any thoughts? The mirror material is set as a 'Mirror', with 100% reflection. I've not changed any defaults, preferences, or qualities about the mirror material or camera views that I could think would affect the reflective quality. Help appreciated.
