Bump maps + stone ??

Recommended Posts

This is a quick 2 pass rendering - but even if I let it go for 30 minutes, it will pass around 90 times.  Even after 90 times - the stone looks fluffy.

 

I am using cultured stone - black rundle - bump map set to 0.05......still - I can't get this to look sharp.  I notice there are a few stones I use that don't work out to well for sharpness.  I have never had a client complain about it - but it bugs me.

 

I use Chief for exterior renderings only - so I guess you could say I am a softcore user.  IS there any hardcore users out there that can give me some tips for raytrace settings?

try a different stone, the image of the texture is the problem. to low a resolution.

Thanks Michael.  i am duplicating what the client picked for exterior finishes -  and the stone that the client  selected in reality - trying to match as best I could.  

 

I ended up google searching the same stone and created my own material.  Not my preferred way - as when the material is replicated - the seams done't line up as nice as they should.  Oh well - that is why it is only a  rendering :)

 

Thanks for your response!
