Spent part of the day on Thursday working with the Render Manager and then added some furniture and fittings to the InProgress-RoomNoFurnitureLW.PNG and as I see it looks much closer to the redSDK.png from my 1st post, sure not all details are included as yet as its a work in progress.
From the few times Ive rendered the RoomNoFurnitureLW.tcw I noticed that the bookcases in the rear of the picture have a matte white material applied but when rendered they come out black and idea why?
The Orange rectangle is what appears to be a loft area based on the redSDK.png and Ive yet to add other details. The chairs in the right rear of the InProgress-RoomNoFurnitureLW.PNG are from grabcad but all other objects I created, ( stairs are from Don Cheke). As soon as I solve the flooring issue below I will post this entire tcw file for others to learn from.
::)A special thanks to Henry Hubich for his fantastic "A Photorealism In TurboCAD(R).pdf" book, Ive learned so much from that its got me to the point Im at now without having to ask a gazillion questions. Sure Im not done here but this book describes in easy to read style on what all the material parameters mean and just howto get where your going. Thanks H indeed!
Okay the problem Ive got is most likely caused by using the wrong floor image ( 000004215064_c.png, this one came from a lightworks Iray Files I downloaded ) and at first glance appeared to be similar in relation to the floor render from redSDK.png. Whats not right yet is the appearance based on floor1.png when compared to the 000004215064_c.png image.
So when you look at 000004215064_c.png versus Floor1.png, Floor1.png is much darker and Id like to get it close to the 000004215064_c.png. The exact same lighting is used in the Floor1.tcw file same as the original RoomNoFurnitureLW.tcw that way all I need to do is improve the floor image and then I can move on, can anyone comment here on how to get that material lighter in colour or have I used the wrong wrapped image sample?
Ive epacked all materials into the Floor1.zip
Wood Wrap Arbitrary Plane.png
( inside the epack file only: 000004215064_c.png )
Floor11x11cm.png ( smaller version of the above epack file only )
Just a late question would/will hdr lighting fix this?
