    Realistic renderings?

    Hi, can someone pin point me to a guide towards realistic renderings in Revit?

    People's rendering and trees look so real, mine just looks like a little kids drawing with some ****** coconut trees.

    There are a number of threads in the rendering forum you can read through.

    The biggest item (IMO) is material & bump map selection. The OOTB materials are marginal at best for the most part. Getting better materials will make a big difference. The other big item (again, IMO) is that the saturation control is pretty bad by default. You can tweak it some in the render dialog and/or do some post production work in an image editor - photoshop, paint.net, gimp etc.

    If you have 2016 I've found the Autodesk Raytracer has pretty good results with minimal tweaking.

    If you have any interest in blending Revit + 3dsMax here's a 5 step tutorial to maximize your workflow between the two:
