I understand, Spain is a beautiful land, nice climat, nice people... In Moldova, the situation was not the same, I suppose. Yes, the job of "image maker" is fascinating, and you have to be interested on a lot of things, photo, materials, optical, plants and more and more... And the result of your work is tangible and often gives you satisfaction (if not, you have to ask for much money ;o)) nXting is so exiting!
Hi, Nina, I don't know if spain is the good place to find a job in this time of crisis. I'm very happy to see what you have to show, with such a little time of nXt learning. I think you have to keep on, you will soon have a level that will emphasize your sensibility. Your sensibility is the crucial thing to produce good pictures, with a renderer like nXt, which save your time with the top quality. The time saved can be used to work on the picture in other directions (gimp, pshop).
I've seen something in your job that you have to correct: the tiling of your textures. Textures are, for me, the parameter the most important. I spend long hours to make some of them, with always a good size, to avoid tiling effect. Xcuse my bad english. One question, why did you choose Spain? And how long?
Around 10 years in this graphic world, and what I find as the better, for the price and productivity, is nXt. You are new in this world, but I feel that with your talent, and sensibility, you will make great things. Do you want to make pictures for construction, or other domain? I'd like to see other images that you did...
Thanks, Nina, I was architecture student till the 5th year, but I find more pleasure in image construction as in building construction. In architecture, conception is a good thing, but they are so many bad things in the architecte job, that can't hold on... You learn 3ds max? do you prefer to use it for modeling as autocad? I used it sometime, but makes me spend too much time... In fact, the better soft, is the soft that you know very well... Your pictures are good to, I'd like to see more of yours...
"Yeah-- like I mentioned the caustics are accurate but could be annoying. Things that might alter it include changing the sun angle so it's not striking the chair's metal surfaces so directly, changing the roughness of the chair…"
"Ah-- so that's a function of the material type. The standard material won't give you a mirror anymore. You need to change the material to metallic and you should get something more familiar. Use the Type popdown on the…"
"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces.
It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures.
In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"
"It's interesting-- overall the quality of this interior is very high for that short amount of processing, and may be acceptable for certain scenes. In this one, however, there are some reflective caustics that are taking longer to…"
"ARDECAL now works.
Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering.
I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull.
This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
