    Render Vs. Reality (toilet room renovation)

    I have to say, even though this was only a toilet renovation project, Revit does a pretty good job OOTB with rendering. I am sure with more tweaks I could get it to look a little more real, although the original renderings worked great for client presentation for colors. I ended up adjusting the final rendered views to match the photos.
    I think I need to review Munk's Rendering thread though, I recall useful info there.

    P.s. it is in a rec center in LA so we went with Lakers colors (purple and gold)

    Nice work....

    FYI, there are a lot better sinks and lavs out there than the OOTB families. I've found some pretty realistic drinking fountains too...

      Originally the client wanted stainless steel fixtures, I neglected to include the piping beneath. The hi-lo is a stock family from the manufacturer. We didn't end up using the SS fixtures partly because of cost and we convinced the client it would give too much of a prison feel. Thanks though!

        Since Revit uses the mental ray rending engine, support for *.ies lighting files, and now supports texture and material mapping, Revit's rendering output has greatly increased. I think it does a great job for OOTB renders as well.

          yeah, my original renders had lower color temp so I made those changes and it looked more accurate. and yes the texture and material mapping is pretty good. Using the tile images from the manufacturer slapped over one of the OOTB tile texture images, add emboss to the new tile to give "3D" look, worked great for me. Might not be the cleanest, although the original texture had grout lines that I would not have to reproduce.
