Re: Is this CGI or a photo?

Most of the images in the IKEA catalogues are rendered. Much more cost effective than building up the furniture and getting it photographed. Software is VRAY and 3ds Max, for special effects (fire, water, smoke) Phoenix FD for Max. More info:

Re: Just another render

Another well done interior render Sharylbg, acrylic chairs look great. whoa, there's a lot of bluring and artifacting going on on the ground and on the door in the shadow. Especially for 22hrs. of rendering :shock: why bidir? Dark, mostly indirectly lit areas are hard to get noise free with pathtrac...

Re: Fast Kitchen

Clean design, nice render.
One small thing, looks like the door handle on the right-side door is the same material as the wall. The left-side door handle is metallic.

Re: Cycles vs Corona

I love Indigo from what I've used, sadly there's no lux exporter for Cinema 4D so I can't use it. :( Hi pixie, C4D has pretty good support for render engines. So why is there no lux plugin?

Re: BlendLuxCore Development
