Hello all , I am new to the turbocad forums but I wanted to share a render that I have been working on. I have been using turbocad 21 deluxe and I think I am getting the hang of the basics of the software. Let me know what you think.

That's a beautiful piece of work. Well modeled, and an excellent application of materials. The illumination is a bit harsh, IMO.

Welcome to the forum, BTW. Hope to see more of your output in the near future.

To make a light shine through glass, the light source must be an object to which you have assigned a Luminance, and whose Luminance Properties must be properly set. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to get soft shadows from illumination through glass, and you might want to consider removing the glass and leaving an empty hole instead. That way, you can use standard lights and easily achieve soft shadows.

I've attached a simple Deluxe drawing that does use Luminance. It's assigned to the small yellow sphere. Look carefully at its Luminance Properties, including the checkmark in the "Load to render luminance only" box.

Nice work and I agree about lighting and environments. It is one of the hardest things to get right for realism.

One suggestion:  I am assuming that is a screen capture, although I wonder how you got such a wide view. Use the 'Save As' option in the file options to save as JPG or any other format. You can go into setup and change the JPG save resolution and options.

Very nice work

I'm no good at lighting so won't comment on that, personally I wouldn't use an image size of 5520x1050, its a bit of an odd size for non-panoramic type images.

thanks for the demo Henry I got the blind effect using your demo now I just need to duplicate it in my render. Also thanks to everyone for the input and comments. The reason why I took a screenshot with prtSCR is because I tried to save it as a JPG and it came out with only a little piece of the render. And I am using three moniters so the image came out big.
