Invitation to Render
Read 8308 times
* October 23, 2011, 07:45:56 AM
I did the attached Hidden Line Render 2 years ago. I've also attached the .tcw file and I'm inviting anyone interested to do a completed render.
There are so many unique styles of lighting and materials uses I thought it would intersting to compare the variations of the same subject.

Thanks Don for your file. I never tried to do any rendering before and your file has pushed me over the edge. I'm going to see what I can do with you file and what I can learn about reandering.

Don,

Here's my attempt...it's on a photographic background that my boss shot of a local park bench, with a "quality / Lightworks / Ray trace - full" render setting using only a single spot light from the front.

Had a second attempt,

this one uses two renders; Advanced -> Sketch -> Colour Contour, and Advanced -> Sketch -> Cartoon, overlaying the two layers in Photoshop.

Really nice model Don!! Here is my attempt with it in Thea. Great render Cadman

Excellent renders Garry, the lighting thread using the same model is a great topic , with some good learning curves.

Steve this render is absolutely stunning, the clarity of the holes on the screwdriver attachment alone. I tried Thea the once, but did not have time to find my way around.

Just out of curiosity, is it possible to put what system, and what render time for the renders above.

Thanks Micheal,

Render time was around thirty min., I believe. I have attached the specs.

Nice renders, all of them.
Gerry, I like your first attempt best. Looks most realistic. I have a small problem with all of them though. The key ring & chain look disproportionately small for the rest of the knife and seem to be hanging out in space. I would like see a shadow under it tying to the ground.

Nice rendering jobs. I like the background of the first render the best. It adds the message saying buy be if your into the outdoors. Myself I keep getting stuck trying to render the screwdriver, scissors and the pliers jaws. But I am getting better at getting TC to crash. The crashing while rendering has got me to the point where I think its best if I stick to what I already know.

Tim,

 Thanks for your comments, the whole assembly was handed out by DeWalt as a promotion and I agree the rings and chains appear small, but everthing was drawn in proportion.
 The idea of attaching the .tcw file was to allow each user to create a unique spin on the same subject. Change the ring and chain size, change whatever suits your perspective tying the chain to the ground and PLEASE post your finished render.

Users sharing ideas with users is the intent here.

Those parts; plier jaws, scissors and screwdriver are saved as 'blocks' and cannot have materials added to them unless first you explode them back to 'parts'.

Each of my renders took around 30 seconds to complete as I was only using the TCAD's internal 'Full' rendering settings.

Hammer...outstanding!  I love the metalic finish on the blade!

You could also use 'Block Edit'.

I had a little time last night to give your model a try Don. The lighting is all IBL using a cubical map and "Environment" luminance. I started out with the map I used for kmartin's shaft and gear model and tweaked it as necessary for this model. Thanks for offering up your model Don!

It is interesting to see the different styles of users emerge in these renders. Great job everyone!
