Ray Tracing White Interiors

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I would be grateful for help in achieving a ray trace of a white interior.

 

I could explain for days the adjustments to materials and lighting I've attempted with no success. 

 

I am open to any help someone can provide.

 

The first image is the rendering.

The second is with a light (15w) inside the shower.

The third is without the light (15w) inside the shower.

 

These traces are five minutes or less but letting it run longer doesn't change the result.

 

Kind regards, Tamela

Check out this thread by Graham Korbey ( KitchenAbode )   , it is definitely worth a read and there are settings to start with ( post 20) which will likely help , but Bathrooms , especially white are tough with all the reflective surfaces.... with Luck Graham will see your Post and Chip in here too with advice  if he has time...

Thank you, M!

 

The article gave me several useful tips that have improved another project. Still struggling with the all white but hoping someone offers more helpful adjustments I can work with.

 

Kind regards, Tamela

Tamela, if you could post the plan I would take a look at it and adjust the lighting and send it back to you.

Tamala - Here is the plan with adjustments.  The RT was done in Chief with a one step auto correct in Microsoft Picture Manager.

Check settings for image properties, lights, materials etc.  I moved the shower glass out of the scene as it was giving me trouble

same as you experienced.  Tried different glass and settings but was still not happy with results. Not sure what is going on with that.

You definitely need some lights to create any kind of effect in this bath.  I just used recessed lights but you may want to use sconces

etc. but set very low.  Also with sconces I usually offset the light source off the wall about 12" otherwise the light is too bright on the wall.

Thank you, Dennis -- much better.

 

I tried the different glass options as well to no avail -- validating to know you had the same issues -- I felt so alone in my pain LOLLLL

 

Thanks for the tip on sconce lighting. I drop those down to 15w but I think pushing them away from the wall is a good idea.

 

I'll take a look at MS Picture Manager. I have wondered on more than one occasion is folks are running RT images through PhotoShop.

 

Again, much appreciation!

 

Kind regards, Tamela

Just checking this out now. The problem with the glass is not the glass, it's that the tiles on the wall in the shower are set to a polished material. Just change them to either a general or a reflective material and all will be good.

I will give that a try.

 

I RT'd another bathroom in the same project and the glass was fine. The tile is a General Material. 

 

Thank you, Tamela

      Hi All, I am trying to achieve a ray trace with a tree in the foreground that sort of frames the picture. Attached is an example of my goal- I did not create the attached jpg. I am getting close by placing a tree close to the camera but mostly out of view, but every tree I have tried is blurry. See the saved camera in the attached file. Then I place another big tree closer to the house to create a shadow on the house/driveway. I will crop that tree out of the final picture. Are there any trees CA has that you recommend for close-up high resolution (5500x3200 pixels) ray trace? I found a thread from the old Chief Talk where they had a similar problem and Larry Kumpost  suggested a high res tree, but I don't know where to find one. Here is the old thread http://www.chieftalk.com/showthread.php?34289-Exterior-Critique&highlight=trees+foreground. Thank you in advance!

      Can anybody tell me why I get ray traces that are really grainy?  I can't find a topic on this.  I am using X9 on a mac.

      When doing a Ray Trace the cabinets seem to be lit from the inside.
      There were no lights added to these cabinets and it seems to be happening every time.

      How do I get rid of halos/glare that is appearing at crown molding, around door ways, cabinets, etc. in ray trace view? Do I need to change the default for interior ambient light?
