How can I generate large format images, like ´8 feet long by 8 feet wide.

Try not to go over 50 DPI (4,800 x 4,800) or 75 DPI (7,200 x 7,200)

Make a 8" x 8", (small),  test image by rendering at 400 x 400 or 600 x 600 and check the print quality on your photo printer, (or 5" x 7" at similar resolutions), I think you'll find that one of these resolutions will work for the larger image.

You should be able to render these sizes if you have enough RAM.

Of, course, the other option is to render just 1/4 of the screen at a time, and stitch the images together.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

I have a 2400x1600 resolution with 100 pases and it is blurry when printed in large format. I will try to work on tiles.


How large did you print the 2400 x 1600 image?

8 feet by 8 feet. It does not define very well shadows. It is blurry in the edges.

for 8' x 8;, try 50 DPI (4,800 x 4,800) or 75 DPI (7,200 x 7,200)

I would expect 2400 pixels (just 25 pixels per inch on paper to be too low a resolution)

If you have enough RAM, 7,2000 x 7,200 should take about about 14 times longer per pass. But, especially for a test, you can render just 5 or 10 passes to see what the quality looks like and then add more passes later when you are sure what resolution you want to use.

I am going to try 4800 to see how it goes.

"Another good rendering. Those two photoshopped reading lights are not looking good though. They don't follow the perspective, the left one is higher than the right one. Also, they are supposed to be turned on (judging from the light on wall…"

"Great image as always. I would just blur the tree shadow on the lawn to match soft shadows on the building. Nice blending of cut-out greenery. Excellent job."

"Very nice rendering Chris! The only thing that distracts me is the fruit bowl. It's too evidently pasted in PS.  Another thing (nothing to do with rendering) is the microwave above the stove. I would rather expect a cooker hood there."

trim and extension command

On AutoCad 2021.The trim and extension command works funny. I initiate the command then click the cutting edge (press entre) then click the lines I need to trim or extend.Now I initiate the command and as soon as I click the object selected trims or extend.  How can I correct this, it is really affecting my work?See More
