Beach Apartment Interior

Hi there,
Thought I’d share some images of a project I was working on recently. All done in Blender 2.8 (except some Sketchup importing done in 2.79), rendered with E-Cycles with an average of 1.5h per image on a GTX 960m + i7-6700HQ using the settings bellow, plus a slightly desaturated Sky Texture enviroment. Any thoughts you have about it are welcome.

Models and textures from a lot of places like here, here, here, here and here.

I featured you on BlenderNation, have a great weekend!

Thanks, Bart. Have a great one as well.

You’re #featured! :+1:

Really impressive. I love the lighting! Looks like a photo from a catalogue. :+1:

I appreciate that, @bartv. Thank you. :pray:

@Taros, thanks for the kind words. Btw, nice stuff you got there on your “Quick tip” series.


That looks great, I especially like the choice of depth of field in the first picture. Did you make the aforementioned sketch up models? If so why use sketch up?

Have you experienced a lot of crashes while working on this? I have a GTX 750 which is similar in power and Blender crashes constantly if I’m not really careful

“Aforementioned”, what an euphonic word, gotta use that more often, haha.
I actually only import sketchup models downloaded from 3dwarehouse. There is a lot of free usable stuff there. I did test to import them as Collada directly in 2.8, but the Sketchup Importer addon does a better job most of the time in my experience.

As for the crashes, after the 2.8 official release they are almost inexistent for me. In object mode I can work with ease even on big files (making heavy use of the Quick Instance Addon). Edit mode is another story, but that tends to improve.

Really nice lighting and rendering, awesome work!

Nice to see that you are using my addon. I making an update with ungrouping option.

@Danny_Mac, Thank you very much.

@Crantisz, Good to know, I’ll keep an eye on your thread. Your addon had a great impact on my workflow. Thank you for that.

Really good job, love how the interior is filled with detail. Also happy to see a bunch of models from BlenderKit.

Yes, they helped a lot. Fast and easy to incorporate in the model. Although I have to say, the first time I imported the frames I had no idea what was going on with all the possible customizations haha. Learned quite a lot fiddling with the models. Thanks for the addon, it’s a great one.

You’re welcome! Thank you. :slightly_smiling_face:
