The workflow was simple
- Modeling the appartment structure (walls, floors, carpentry) in Revit
- Exporting as fbx to Blender 2.79b
- Configure lights and environment in Blender 2.79b, after that I opened the scene in Blender 2.80 and tweek the light and ilumination conditions here and there.
- Selection of the assets and sutf for populating the interior scene, place all the models in blender 2.79b and later append by groups and zones in the Blender 2.80 converted scene. (Many of the assets aren´t mine, I have my personal library of downloaded assets of freebies from many 3d models sites)
- Tweek and retouch shaders here and there configure the cameras and shot the images. That´s all
As architect, I spend most of the time designing the spaces, the building structure and so on (architectural designing) and spending less time for making the archviz of the modelling, then I need a workflow as fast as possible, due to my time, ann I cant´n modeling avery asset; I´m an architect who make it´s own archviz in a relative short time. All this work was made in about 6-7 days in my spare time 1-2 hrs daily.
The rebdering time was about 3-4 minutes per images, with F12 rendering, but with “OpenGl rendering active viewport” button the rendering time was only 20secs average, but you see some diferences in the shadows in the final image, later I´ll share 2 images for comparisson purposes and some images with the lights location and rendering configurations (EEVEE).
The objective for making this exercise was for testing EEVEE for simulating “real” production conditions and for pushing the limits of my hardware with a BIG scene with many assets.
