First render luxcore

First luxcore render, second interior render ever. I plan to use Davinci to add some color grades and such later. Can i get some pointers and strong criticism people?

Nice, looks pretty convincing..

Maybe carpet and the background behind window could use more work they look a bit fake now

Yeah sure, i will check that. How long do you think it should have taken?( took 4hours on my laptop hardware, i7 6500u with 950gtx). Also i notice you are not new so maybe i can ask this, might you have an idea as to why during caching the system freezes up and goes to ''blue screen''?

4 hours is a lot. Caching meaning photongi cache? If you enable indirect cache you get BSOD?

Yes photongi cache and yes indirect cache is actually on by default. I did check the settings again and made another render unchecking the intel graphic card in my gpu list( leaving the gtx950 option) and the freezing seem to stop, i think. With regard to the render time do you think @2000 makes it okay for 4hours? I tried lower but the blurring from the denoiser was messing with the already not so good leather i had going on :lol:

Ah yes, integrated gpus always cause trouble. What version of luxcore did you use

Very nice indeed for a first render.

You can improve it by making light more contrasted. add a bit of shadow depth or mix natural + artificial light. also try to follow a good reference :

looks good. I really like the chair.

The wood around the mirror looks slightly strange to me as though it's a bit low resolution in comparison to the rest of the scene, or the reflections on it look a bit odd? Maybe? I'm not sure!
