    Need tips/info on Rendering!?

    Hi,

    I have a few projects that need high quality renders for our next presentation. I have watched some tutorials and read a few threads with the general idea of rendering. I know how to add artificial lighting, edit sun paths etc. However my knowledge of exposure and quality settings is lacking. Does anyone have any handy tips/infomation that i may have missed on the subject?
    After setting up high quality renders and leaving the computer to do its thing for a few hours, i am still getting slightly blurred images.

    Kind regards
    Xander

    note: I moved the thread to the Rendering forum.

    Are you doing interior or exterior renderings?

    Munk has a good post on interior settings if you haven't seen it yet: http://www.revitforum.org/rendering-...ghts-only.html

    The other option is to move your renderings to another program. 3DStudio ships with Building Design Suite and can make great images in a short time frame but it can have a wicked learning curve.

    Apologies for posting to wrong part of forum (joined today ha)

    I have heard 3DS and Lumion are really good, just havent had the time to have a go at them.
    I am currently working on interiors tho, so that thread should help lots!

    Many thanks

    There are so many possible responses to your question... Instead of answering directly, I will direct you to a bunch of tutorials on my blog to start: revit rendering | TheRevitKid.com! - Tutorials, Tips, Products, and Information on all things Revit / BIM

    Also, here is an in depth review of Revit to Lumion: From Revit to Lumion - THE ULTIMATE REVIEW | TheRevitKid.com! - Tutorials, Tips, Products, and Information on all things Revit / BIM

    And finally, BIM After Dark - Volume 1 is a full length series that will show you not only how to make awesome renderings but how to post-process them (which I think is where the heart of your question exists): BIM After Dark - Volume 1: BIM can be sexy...

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    I work for a company at the moment which uses revit to do all its modeling and lumion 5.70 pro for there walkthroughs and still images. However lumion is hyper realistic and im looking for more photo realistic stils and walkthroughs. Can you suggets any other programmes i could look into to use ?

    We havent had the time to look into anything other than 3DSMax and Lumion however i have heard of a programme called 'Revitzo' which is meant to be pretty good. As for photo realistic images id stick with Revit or Max.. We have started using Revit itself to render particular spaces then touching them up in photoshop.
    Hope this helps

    Revizto is awesome. It isn't photorealistic but it is fast and being able to walk through the building in real time kicks ass. I've seen the issue tracker in demos and it also looks really cool but have never used it.
