My name is jimmy Widlund and i was just scrolling through the kitchen tutorial on BlenderGuru. That tutorial is for Blender 2.49 so i got this awesome idea to try make a kitchen and render it in Blender 2.5.
What i did was i modeled the kitchen as he did in Blenderguru in blender 2.5 and then Blenderguru went down to Blender 2.49 because it was curently broken when he did the tutorial. So i downloaded Blender 2.59 with luxnreder installed from Graphicall.org. I started to play around with the settings for a while. I learned myself the hard way!
After a long time of experementing i figured out some cool methods and material settings. I also learned about the interiour and exteriour things.
Now at this stage i was ready to work on the actual scene. So i started making the materials. And then finally i added lightgroups and 2 objects that are emiting light and those are the only objects that is emiting light.
I started the rendering and let it render over the night. After 8 hours it looked like it does now. I applyed final lense effects and then done!
rendertime: 8 hours
modeled in: Blender 2.59
