    I thought I replied earlier but it didn't seem to be posted.

    --------------------

    Thanks all, to clarify, by splitting it out I mean having a model for entourage, trees, fluff etc while also lining in the construction model and rendering from within this, I like the idea of modifying the construction model as it's own model for rendering even less (for the above reasons you mention).

    We have a 3rd party creating the main renders professionally, from time to time we have to do smaller isolated renders to give potential tenants a feel for the space they may let.

    I agree there can be unrealistic expectations from fluffing up the render with additional modelling, I've found lights under vanity units who's only purpose was to light up a space for a render. Meanwhile drawings were issued that show a light clashing/running through the vanity unit sinks...

    ------------------

    I guess where I'm going with this is, if you do use your live models for rendering (I don't see why not), how do you prevent all of the additional stuff/fluff that makes it's way into the model from showing up in your drawings?

    Things like additional lights in your ceilings or under/behind objects to make spaces brighter which don't make up your construction/tender drawings. Additional model objects to close gaps (where you would resort to detailing rather than modelling in flashing's or trims). Signage/posters/lettering/etc which is only used to enhance the render (for the potential client) but has no place in any construction drawing. There is a case for the later where you might be doing the interior design but at this point I would assume the design is frozen and you're actually modelling the final interior not something hypothetical that might happen?

    Must be something like that. I submitted the above/last post twice, and it told me it needs to be approved. Long time lurker who finally decided to sign up, and help a few others when/if I can.
