playing with Advanced Rendering

Continuing my quest for realism, and learning to draw with TCAD (16.2), here's my latest.  It's the first project I've drawn using only TCAD, so that's a personal milestone.  Very satisfying result - the great CAD switchover has really begun !  The advanced rendering mode is STANDARD, raytraced with raytraced render controller, GI / GI controller and final gather / final gather controller.  The desk is sitting on a very large floor, and illuminated with simple sky, all lighting components on.  Then I added a no-shadow point luminaire fill on the right, and a no-shadow area luminaire left of camera and far back.  Took about an hour to render to screen, about 2 hours to render a 1500x2500 jpeg.  Haha, the big control room models are sure to be overnight renders !  This Lightworks engine rocks.  Hope TCAD v17's removal of 2GB RAM limit and allowing GPU usage also applies to Lightworks renderings, because I feel the need for speed !  BTW, chair model was found online in 3ds format.

Nice work Steve, looks like you are really getting a handle on the program, I am looking forward to the improvements for version 17 as well.

Looks good, Steve. There are some pretty fine details in that drawing, which show up well in the render.

I love the realism. Great work. I find myself going from 3D gallery to 3D gallery looking in amazement at all of the images that look like photographs. Many images here on this board fit this criteria also. Once again great work.

Me too, km.  I spent a lot of time looking through the TCAD (and Lightworks . . . check those out) galleries and it's pretty amazing what can be done with this software.  I've got that image set as wallpaper now and full-screen it's just jaw-dropping.  I can't stop playing - so here's the other side view.  It looks even more realistic than the first one IMHO.  Wish I had moved the chairs back tho' . . .

Since I have some extra time right now . . . haha, a good news/bad news situation . . . I'm taking the opportunity to learn the software.  The time I'm spending on this as-yet-unsold project is way disproportionate to it's size, but it's a great training piece.   Along the way, I produced and submitted some decent renderings with the project proposal.  These images, though, are almost shocking.  I've been waiting a long time to be able to produce results like this - it warms my artist's heart.

Hello,

very interesting work.
I also tried a similar scene with glass on top. set of glass enclose. also adjust luminance. luminance as the sun and sky.

Nice Majo !  Great woodgrain.  Thanks for the screengrabs.  Your glass top is terrific, the way the bolts read through the edges.  The top on mine is to be plexiglas, so it's a different refraction.  But as you might notice, I didn't put the bolts into the standoffs :o.  As the renderings reach higher quality, little details make all the difference.  For a true production drawing, of course, bolts and holes would need to be added. 

I noticed a 2D layout on the ground in one of the screen shots - is this the template /guide that you used to build the 3D model from ?  I use a similar technique.  Your work is awesome.

To do simple things first 3d model and then use the palette drafting 2d do.
In complex cases based on the 2d to 3d and then
