    quick camera question

    Fixed, thank you!!
  2. Hi, how can I stop the camera from clipping away my model? Objects that are close to the camera get cut. It seems like a useful tool but I didn't even know that was possible. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k0m26rx6vapturb/AACAmjJox62htRSo31QNZtWXa Vic.
  3. Wow, it works!!! :) Now I am scared to make minor adjustments, I don't want to mess with the settings. I put some renders un the dropbox. Thanks again.
  4. Hi, thanks, no I didn't know they were there. I am looking at some models right now, it seems so simple. I'll just import the whole project into mine and see if it works. Thank you.
  5. I messed with the photons an GI all day but I can't get it to look as god as the American Kitchen in the EIAS gallery. Any tips? https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k0m26rx6vapturb/AACAmjJox62htRSo31QNZtWXa

    Hi Thomo, I followed all your advise and the tutorial. It did get a lot faster. Not sure if fixing the transparency settings for things that only had clipping helped, but I did it anyway. It helped a lot when I did it for the glass, it went from 15 min to 5 min. Amazing. But here is the whole project I can surely use any tip you can give me on how to make the lights faster, I still have to add some good looking grass for some of the shots so I am worried about that. Any ideas on how to make some good looking grass for when the camera is close to it? Thanks Vic. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k0m26rx6vapturb/AABEMX-WiBZZhGx4glpstZnsa

    Well you guys are really good at this, aren't you? :-) I followed your advice and I have finally rendered one frame in under 5min. It was something like 15min before. And I don't even need to do any extra shadow render or anything. I just need to improve my gardening and textures now. Thanks for the help. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k0m26rx6vapturb/QMVkTSW9V3 All transparent objects are set to raytrace and GI-irradiance. Only one parallel light right now with GI-normal. GI settings in dropbox. All other lights I plan to use are small radials with no shadows inside the apartments, just to be able to see inside a little bit. That shouldn't increase render time to much I hope. Also not in all apartments only a few. Thanks. Vic.

    Shaking shadows

    Hi Thomo, thank you for all your help. I am finally able to get back to this project. Non of my people or trees have transparencies, they only have clipmaps and all the clipmaps are separate b/w jpgs. Only the glass is transparent (I made all the adjustments you described already). The trouth is that if I remove all the vegetation it all renders in under 2 min even with furniture inside the apartments. I'm just going to have to find a better way to add the trees. What I would like some help with is in getting to the perfect way to light this. I'll include in the dropbox a finished render I have to equal in quality, and some of my attempts. Again, thanks for everything. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k0m26rx6vapturb/QMVkTSW9V3

    Thanks for the colouring tip, it's important to remove imported lights and cameras.

    Hi Thomo and Tomas, here is the whole project, please tell as soon as you have downloaded it, I don't want to have it accessible to the public for ever. All help is welcomed, I need this project to look really good and I don't have too much time to render it (as usual). As it is, I was rendering at aprox. 9min per frame. Not bad, but it is still missing details. Some better grass would be nice. Thanks in advance. Vic. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/k0m26rx6vapturb/QMVkTSW9V3
