I’ve been learning Blender for about 3 years now and this is my first finished project, insofar as anything is ever finished in my mind… so not. But, my gf told me I have to stop messing around and just put something up on blenderartists…
Awesome render good job,
Some of the renders are a bit noisy, though, especially at light spots. Have you tried to increase the resolution, or the sampling? Have you enabled the Denoising tool?
Yeah I need to work on noise reduction perhaps, to be honest in the 1st and 3rd pictures it was intentional stylistically, I added it in post processing (GIMP). The 5th image I added with GIMP as well, I was trying to go for a smoky feel, perhaps I wasn’t so successful The only “pure” image without PP is the 4th one.
This light gave me a bit of trouble with noise unfortunately.
Wow! You should’ve started posting sooner! I like the warm color schemes too.
Perhaps EEVEE could help with the noise for some of your renders the shadows were recently improved a ton.
Oh, yes, I see: that “vintage blur” effect, ha, ha. But yes, I referred specifically to light noise, which can be also seen in the unprocessed 4th image.
I also think you should have started posting sooner!
Haven’t had the chance to use EEVEE yet, I was waiting for the official roll-out of 2.8 before diving into it
Yeah, I’m still not clear why some lighting situations create more noise than others. I know glass is a big factor.
Exactly. All the effects that play with light (reflection, refraction, SSS… ) tend to create a lot of noise, because of the difficult paths rays follow in those scenarios. Try the tricks I posted in my first comment .
Yeah thanks man, I didn’t even know the Denoising tool was there, . Resolution was 100% and around 1500 samples.
I featured you on BlenderNation, enjoy
Cool, thanks Bart
I really like the modeling and the setup here, and the only “crit” that I would make (ref. shot #1) is:
“The Almighty Product® has got to be sharp!”
I like the color and the balance of all of the shots, generally, but IMHO when a photo is there to feature “a product,” it should depict that product better than it could ever look in real life.
Hmm… OK, it’s good to know, I never really thought about it to be honest but it seems logical.
