I've been working with Majo about using TC21.   He sent me these images this morning along with this message and the go ahead to post on his behalf.  Thanks Majo!

Description:
I sending to you some images, which I made with the new version of TC.
It has made in RedSDK engine - materials, luminances and render styles.
I like new version :)

I was waiting for this functions ( as real neon lighting and area lighting ) a long time.
Now is TurboCAD The Best Cad software. For me definitely! :)

Hey guys,

Thank you for your comments. Special to Dave for posting.
I did some tests with the luminance RedSDK. Attach files e-pack.

New features RedSDK rendering is a great step forward.
Especially for interior design and it is very, very good.
Very good quality in a short time, I like it  8)

Thank you, Majo

Majo

What were your approx rendering times and have you used Render Scene Environment and Render Scene Luminances in these?

Or a mixture of RedSDK lights?

Hi Darrel,

On first five pictures are used only ceiling light (600x600mm) as "luminances test" -> first light, but with setting "No Visible geometry" in dialog from this luminance setting. Render time was from 4 to 20 minutes. Time is depend of how good is procesor in your PC/notebook and also on how many light is in scene.

On next two pictures are used "Sun" as Render Scene Luminances and ceiling light 8 x (1200x200mm) and light on The Reception desk. This scene was render time about 30-35 minutes.

Darrel even more important information is all pictures was rendered as "Render style - RayTrace Fine Tone HDR"

Hi Majo

Thanks for the info..... so you are not using Global Illumination (GI) then?

Excellent work Majo, really like the quality of the renders, great contrast in the finished images, which I sometimes struggle with.

It would be good to have a thread all about controlling contrast in an image with the various lighting and environment options, what we need is a few test model scenarios that people could try out lighting of various kinds, sort of template lighting models.

No, I used standard setting Raytrace Fine Tone HDR. This setting is with GI.

Thanks Michael, good idea. I will think about this  ;)

Yeah Majo....I thought it had got to have it  ;)

Your GI settings....did you tweak them from the default?

I am finding that we need to have some extra luminance/s and/or static lights to get some fill. I have been playing with the "Gamma" settings in Tone but not had any real success yet....they tend to look a bit washed out.

Darrel, I will try tomorrow preparing some interior with luminance and other setting. And then we can write about concrete scene, OK?

I just may have to start working with RedSDK...! Majo these are great - the depth of detail in the shadows feels so very realistic. And the short render times are enviable. I'm still happily using Brad's Softbox for lighting my product shots, but it's not so good for interiors. Under v20, Setting up lighting has been tedious, and takes a long time. Glad you're out there on the leading edge!  Thanks.
