Hey all, So I’m using Blender 2.74 and have been learning for the better part of a month now and am having a blast. So I’m learning thru the use of the many tutorials and sites like this one and I am running into the issue of to many out dated tuts. I’ve learned to steer clear of the really old ones but even 2.7 seems to have differences at least in the result I’m seeing on my screen. Sorry kinda ranted there, now back to my question. I was inspired to use the start cube as a glass holding an object inside by this render I saw on r/Blender
There was a healthy back and forth about the validity of the claim that this was a first render by someone who had only been using Blender for a short time… I digress…so here is my image
and a screen shot of the setup
I’m looking to cut down on the graininess overall as my main goal. I’m at 200 samples, clamp direct is 7 and indirect is 3. The light is from a plane directly above, color white, strength of 7.
The head in the center was very quickly done and is just a representation of an idea.
Help refining the image would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to any an all comments!
