Looks like you got the caustics to work OK. The coaster is a nice addition as well. You don’t want those ugly rings ruining the finish on your table, believe me.

Maybe a little more light to show the detail on the black pieces. Other than that, looks great. :slight_smile:

Much better! where was the trick for getting rid of the black spot? not placing a credit card under the glass I hope :slight_smile:

It looks better than before, but it still seems a bit dim over all. Depending on what you want to do with it, it looks finished to me.

hmmm, the reflections seam a bit wrong too me. I think it’s because of the reflecting wooden table. seams a bit too much

I removed the black spot by

  1. Removing the downside of the glass
  2. Shooting 7.500.000 photons instead of 300.000
  3. Placing a coaster under the glass

I’ll play a little more with the lighting and the reflections.

Gulp!

7.500.000 photons!!!

This may explayn my ‘visible’ triangles… maybe too few photons … mmm…
let’s render overnight :slight_smile:

Oh, it took only 7.5 hours to render :stuck_out_tongue:

Did blender really render that? :o

Damn good job if it did can I see the blend file?


(hannibar) #10

NoNo, this is a Lightflow render, the modelling is done in blender though.

hannibar–

Jacking up the photons worked for you too! Great! I thought it was only my system, which, “doesn’t seem to work and play well with others”.

Great pic :smiley:

With 3.000.000 photons and 6.5h of nighttime rendering I got a Muchmuchmuch better image!
