Re: flat shading when using homogeneous volume

Indeed¸all engines render volume like this. In other words, since there's no surface, normals are taken out of equation = no smoothing.

Re: Best Arch visualiser ever

Thing is, that simulation not only occupies wide color space but it also" understands and works with it" even, if result is later narrowed down. How it narrows it down is another question, a tone mapping one. BTW, ACES basically helps lessen errors, helps achieve better precision, in controling colo...

Re: Best Arch visualiser ever

I hope, but don't think so, since LuxCore still carries its inner limits. Same as VRay still falls short while Arnold is a beast on it's own (yet both have OCIO support). From what I understand Luxrender was able, but then LuxCore was "optimized" and it since does its magic in "narrow" color space (...

Re: Best Arch visualiser ever

it's mostly wider internal rendering color space and either custom LUT or specific tonemapping. I compared both few times already and LuxCore comes close but can't really match it unless you take rendered HDRI out of Blender or otherwise spend significant time on tonemaping. With latest Corona's ver...

Re: Volumetrics issues

An old school trick. When nothing else helps, put camera in "a bubble of air". Then you should seamlessly transit through mediums/volumes.

But I don't know, if this means a bug or just a design flaw.

But then you revert to dealing with biased, artistic illustrations where even pencil sketch gets job done. :|

Re: Rose Quartz rendering

yeah, more tweaking :D
