Hi Guys,

its been a while since i last posted, so decided to bash out another quick one to test out some settings.

This project was actually for a client, i was provided the basic Cad plans and Elevations. 

For this render i wanted to see how well the 3d plants rendered, and also to use nothing but Podium Browser objects ( minus the wall light - i couldnt find one i liked in the browser)

I was also testing how well the car rendered using it straight from the browser.

In PP i filtered the entire image slightly, masked the grass, and added some sky. Thats pretty much it!

I used: external preset high 

cheers. FullSizeRender copy.jpg

Love it, some minor adjustments on the brick texture (to match the lines with the construction) and IMHO for me it's perfect

Oh wow!

This is just brilliant [thumb]

Truly excellent work!

I would ask if you would be happy for us to add it to the gallery, except there is one little (very quick) tweak you could make to improve it.

Actually two, if you add a lead flashing to the garage roof...

The texture alignment on the garage isn't quite right. If you look at the brick coursing, it doesn't quite line up with the top of the garage door [smile]

You can either adjust the opening or the texture position.

I'm such a party pooper [tongue]

Thank you for the feedback guys. This is exactly the feedback I was hoping for. It's nice to get a fresh eye perspective on it as I tend to miss things after staring at it so long.

I would love for you to use it in the gallery, that would be awesome [smile]

I will make the amendments when I get back from work tonight and attach the updated render this evening. Anything else to add? Or shall I keep it simple?

Cheers

Hi Guys.

attached is the ammended visual.

Heres what i did:

Corrected the material on the garage so the brick courses are correct.

corrected the material on the front elevation next to the render so the brick course are correct.

added guttering to the sides of the garage and house which were missing.

added flashing.

changed the blinds in the windows to curtains.

added a number.

i think it looks way better now. thank you.

Yeah, this looks AMAZING! Great job Sketchlar. How long was the render time on this? Love the small details like street light reflection in the window. [thumb]

Thank you for your comment UrbanJourney. Render time was around 2.5h however i was using a macbook so im guessing you could decrease this time significantly using a more powerful desktop Computer.

I actually used a Podium Browser residential looking background to achieve the reflections in the window. It worked really well! I then placed a 3d Tree out of camera in order to get the tree shadow to cast over the driveway.

In all honesty, i didnt spent much time on this model at all, and it just goes to show how powerful and effective podium is in creating quick renders. and the Browser is a life saver.

URBANJOURNEY - if you dont mind, i may send you a PM, i have just been looking at your internal renders and they are beautiful, i have a few questions if you wouldn't mind answering them. [smile]

cheers

The only thing with this, is that you have added a stepped flashing, which you use with face brickwork (flashings & soakers) whereas with render, you use a linear sheet which is disc cut into the masonry or the render.

It has more detail, but it's the wrong detail [wink]

Also, your lintels project beyond the face of the render/stucco. I've never seen this in reality, not least because you end up with a shelf for frost. Generally they are flush...

Thanks again for the feedback. Yeah my mistake on the flashing, common sense appears to be not so common after all haha. I followed the architects drawings for the lintel arrangement. his section shows a projection, but this could be a mistake on his part. oh well. im happy with the result so far. i my come back to it at a later stage, but for now i must rest it and get on with my other projects! working on some more interesting warehouse conversion interiors, will post up when complete!

That's better [smile]

Excellent stuff! 

Also, your handle should be nearer the bottom of the door (otherwise you don't get enough leverage to lift it) and a tiny gap at the bottom between the door and the drive would add even more realism.

Epic render [thumb]

Design-wise, you have a problem with the lack of space between the ridge and the window cill for the lead, (normally your flashing should be 100mm deep as a minimum) but that's for your 'architect' to wrestle with.  You've also got a projecting plinth course.  This will be flush at the garage door jamb, and the top course will use a plinth brick. Projecting lintels, no space for flashings, he's heading for trouble...
