    OOTB rpc truly sucks

    This is why I'm looking at creating my own RPC's...these images are cloud renders (approx. 5.5 mins each, max quality & resolution), very nice quality. It's the standard sample house with a few embellishments, but you can understand my horror at the OOTB RPC trees...uuggh :coffee: what a f$%^ up. For the second shot I changed the trees completely (but still OOTB) and the same problem is still apparent. What a waste of time.

    Martijn certainly has my kudos in previous posts about lame product values...

    I thought they sucked because they were RPC's, are there any good ones? The Archvision website is too lame to tell

      I like them. Here's a rendering with cars and trees. Not perfect, but certainly better than what you are experiencing IMO.
      I'm on subscription. I think it's 250 a year for the standard package. All the trees, people, and cars I could ever use.

        What I hate about their content is that the images lack a bit of contrast and quite a bit of saturation. All their rpcs, specially trees look dull and washed out. you can play around with the exposure afterwards but it affects the whole rendering so I'm very cautious to use them.

          Recently I've been rendering each image twice, once with, and once without the RPC's. Then the one with RPC's will be overlaied in Photoshop, given transparency and the exposure adjusted. Gives a pretty cool effect.

            I like to make the trees bigger....but place them way back so that they are softer instead of more pronounced.

              Well the OOTB RPC definately suck. The "real deal" is better however. But then, this isn't rendered through the cloud.
              As for photoshopping and stuff: I don't go there. Take it or leave it... Instead, I'll play with lighting so that the sadness of the RPC's doesn't really stand out.

                I've gone as far as creating some custom families for trees, just an extrusion of a tree profile, with a semi opaque green material create a copy rotate 90 degrees and you're done. The are very conceptual but the beauty is that you can adjust transparency in order to blend them in more. I like this look although I would prefer in some cases some nice photorealistic trees.

                  ...so you may or may not find this interesting I haven't found time to play with rpc creator yet but this option (as pictured) allows you to set min & max brightness for your rpc's

                  However, after opening the revit rpc's in the family editor this functionality doesn't seem to exist...

                  sounds interesting, do you have anything you can show us?

                    Already downloaded it to play around with. It's on my to-do list... Then again, GIMP is too some 23 entries back, and that one I came across 5 months ago on this forum... So I guess it'll be around mid 2014 before I can get around to this.

                    btw: I can't follow your attachment. Got an "Invalid Link" error message...
