Radiosity (test of lighting)

Hello folks,
My new wip: A simple room, some differents objects… and light

To be continued…

That’s cool. You can use those baked vertex-colors to make a realtime walktrhrough.

Cool… I’d be pretty interested to hear about your yafray settings…

Radiosity is blender internal (not the renderer, it’s separate).

Nice test :slight_smile:

Yep, those images are from Blender’s Finite-Element Radiosity solver. And when it’s done, the results are baked (i.e., stored in the vertex-colors). So you can rotate the object and view the lighting from all angles.

Just a little up (blender internal)

you might want to subdivide the ground and walls a bit.

you’ll have longer rendering times but you’ll get a very much nicer result.

Just 2 new images :

It is not necessairy (IMO) :wink:

I love the look of your radiosity renderings. If you are planning on making a still image I have found that rendering the radiosity image and overlaying it onto a non-radio image(internal or yafray) can give some pretty awesome results.

I have try something like that: Toon + rad + aera_lamp + edge

The same, with less specular:

ps: The rad solution is not definitive;)

:(:frowning: no one ? :(:frowning:

I prefer the second one, :slight_smile:

Hey. I’m watching, I’ve always wanted to see blender’s radiosity run in a full-scale project. It’ll be interesting to see how this works. Looking nice.
