Here is a work somebody asked me, I started but I will not work anymore on it as it will not be used. So they are still some imperfections and it probably should be improved but the result is not bad at all.
Modelled with Blender
Rendered with Yafray
Some postprocessing mainly to correct some artifacts due to the Yafray renderer
The rendering time was about 6h30 on a core 2 duo 6700 in 1200x800
I mainly spent time on the light tuning and on Yafray settings to get a good quality/time ratio.
Just for the fun, I’m doing the same rendering with Indigo, the main issue is the light settings as meshlights do not produce enough light to illuminate the scene and I had to open the ceiling to let the sun enter in the room. As soon as I get a nice result I’ll post it here.
Here is a first attempt with Indigo. Still some grain and problems with the bump on the floor tiles to fix.
Rendering time : 9h30 on a Core 2 duo 6700 for an image in 800x600
