hello,

i want to ask about how can i render an image that can produce a great quality image, because i've seen some great image examples which is produced from lumion.. it seems like vray quality render..

for now I still use vray for rendering my image, but after i saw the examples that produced from lumion, I think I will change my way.. can you let me know what factors that can produce some great images with lumion renderer??

i'm starting to begin render image in lumion because the time doesn't cost as much as i use vray.. thank u..

If you can get all that detail included in a Lumion scene it will look just as good.

Not that I claim I "Render great images in lumion", but I think the formula is the same:

"Good model, good texture, good lighting."

As the scale goes up GI gets less important (still important though), especially for external renders such as architectural renders that Lumion3D specializes in.

okay, so I assume that image quality from Lumion renderer is far below vray quality?? isn't it??

hope that Lumion will increase it significantly soon.. so we can choose just 1 software to make a great video and image quality, which is Lumion.. ;)

What do you think of these images?

I think you can push Lumion for getting great results

a million thumbs up for this work bakbek.... it would be awesome if you shared the environment settings as well for these shots... i was speechless when i first saw these images.. even with some p-shop work... this work beats vray in terms of quality provided against the time it takes in lumion...  HATS OFF to you

Don't compare apples to oranges. Even with vray you still need good models, texturing and  lighting. Vray does not add "beauty" to images.

As you can see from the above images the difference gets quite small with some work.

very correct in this... but still the amount of time lumion settings and some p-shop work can save as compared to the time taken by vray is very alluring.... although this cant be said for all sorts of CG scene  types... but atleast as above showcased exterior renders can be made stunning in no time with good model+lightin+materials+settings...

VGA card type doesnt play a role in the final rendering.. its the same for all VGA cards... only gaming cards like radeon and gtx are more better for lumion than hardcore professional cards like quadro or so... better in sense that they can handle you scenes more efficiently in realtime as in case of high graphics games... whereas quadro cards are not efficient enough for such realtime scene handling...

these settings can be applied on almost any pc with any card... just that you would not see scene in much clarity as in case of good gaming cards.. but render would be same if done on different pcs with different h/w specs.. only the render time would be different depending upon your card's capacity...

hope u got your answers

Its the person in front of the Computer who makes the eye-candy not just the tools.

If I would use Vray for my work all of the images would suck lol.
