    Test Render

    Hello! First time poster here. I have been using Revit for many years now, but am starting to get more into rendering scenes out of it. I am less familiar with Max, but am starting to noodle with it again. It reminds me of an old Autodesk product called VIZ. Anyway, here is a test render that I am working on. This is standard medium quality from Cloud Render. I am generally pleased with it. I am working on a better quality version using some custom lighting settings discussed in other threads here.

    Any critiques or thoughts would be appreciated!

    From what I can recall Viz was basically 3DS Max but without all the animation and complex modeling options. At some point Autodesk merged the two and/or discontinued Viz but I don't know the specifics.

    The biggest thing that jumps out at me with your render is that it looks like your room is floating and doesn't have anything beyond it. Adding in some sort of background would help anchor it rather than the generic grey-blue that is there currently.

    Your materials need a little work but that is a never ending battle when it comes to rendering. I suck at making maps and getting them to look not flat so don't take that as a big negative. The OOTB materials are not great - if you are able to search for something (anything) else I would recommend it - I use [CG Textures] - Textures for 3D, graphic design and Photoshop! quite a bit.

    Otherwise it is little details - you don't have a wall base (vinyl cove, wood etc), the scale of your entry storefront seems a little off (could be camera distortion), the materials for the desk seem flat. Nothing major but they add a lot to the scene IMO.

    Overall it is a nice rendering! Details like the millwork at the desk and the fancy light fixtures add a lot to it. Once you get the lighting sorted out and do a little post production you will be well on your way!
