Here’s some renders of a kitchen all done in Blender. Rendertimes between 7-9 minutes per frame at 1280x720.
- One ray lamp in each window
- Some lamps w/o shadow in different places to simulate bounces
- One sun
- No ambient occlusion
I’ve done this test to learn to light interiors in a realistic way without using external GI renders.
There’s also a short video at http://www.vimeo.com/6041046
I’d love to receive comments and tips on how to improve on render speeds
