Test render

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, November 9, 2012 Under: wip
Hey all!

I went ahead of the tutorial on this one for now, because I needed to see how this scene could be finished. The below is NOT the finished scene. It is only a test render and looks cheap and nasty (apart from the ruin, but even that is out of focus, lol):

Looks terrible.... lol.

Anyway, the night of, I was working on the trees. Making sure to keep it as simple as possible, but still giving as much detail as possible. It's a juggling act in every project (no matter how powerful your PC is, you still want the fastest render with the best possible look).

This is a 300pass render of a tree:

When comparing the two, the tree looks marvelous and so it should. This tree, believe it or not, takes a lot less memory to render than a plane with procedural textures on it to form a tree. That is how many nodes it takes to make one.

This looks tons better too and works better, so yey for the tree generator!!! Lol.

Anyway, back on point. I have added a lot to the scene since the above render and it looks much better too, though unfortunately not as real as I wanted (it can be made much more complex, but my hardware is limited).

Hope y'all like the progress on this one!

Thank YOU!!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
