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: it was better before

I'm speaking in a relative way as you can see i mention Arion render / Maxwell / Indigo and theses one seem to behave in this kind of super accuracy light transport and shading. you can really see they are different in that level but they are not Renderer from the past. In the contrary some other r...

Re: Problem with bump map

I would better use a normal or displacement map for these types of larger raised or embossed structures. Especially if you want to animate the scene and change view direction. Bump maps are good for small surface variations like pores or wrinkles on a skin. They don't change the actual surface geome...

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? This is not a lux only issue, all open source render engine maintainer find it difficult to provide plug-ins....

Re: BlendLuxCore Development

if there is at any point any experimental version of blendluxcore for 2.8 then let me know I cannot speak for the developers, just try to explain why plug-in developers prefer to wait before they start working on the new Blender version. Blender 2.8 beta is not yet out and the Python API and docume...

Re: microroughness control

A surface with micro-roughness has several reflection contributions, sheen is an additional specular component at grazing angles to model e.g. light interacting with cloth fibers. Retro-reflection and diffuse components are the other ones. Disney's Principled Shader implements them.

Re: Cycles vs Corona

About the Corona for Blender test version. There was a free (unlimited) Corona 1.6 standalone version from January 2017 available which can still be used with Blender. However, it is not distributed and available for download anymore. It is a powerful render engine and was distributed without limita...

Re: Cycles vs Corona

lux and indigo are both spectral renderers. Is that right? Old Lux Classic was a spectral renderer, new LuxCore is RGB. Indigo and Maxwell are spectral renderer. The render quality both are capable of is top and Indigo seems to have a small following in the archviz scene when one looks at their Gal...

Re: Cycles vs Corona

Have indigo or Maxwell GI caching?
No they don't have GI caching like Corona or V-Ray have. They are similar to LuxCore in that both use bidirectional pathtracing with a version of Metropolis sampling.
