Hi~ProWalker
Res: 2560x1500
Render Time: 100 sec
Preset: Pr-Mode
Lightning: Simulation fine1
Post Processing: White Balance 7000

I found simulation sky is quite interesting.
Once you turn on again and again, you will get cloud style changing randomly.

Something a little sad is no two point perspective view in PW.
Therefore I have to render a bigger image and crop it to what I want.

This is fabulous! I think PW is far better at exteriors than interiors. It's not that I don't think PW isn't good for interior renders, I just think for exteriors it's a lot better.
Great work [thumb]

Hmm....I am not sure about that big stick.  I'm taking the liberty to post Justin's interior images. bathroom-design.png  bedroom-tight-final-brighter.png  What???  You can't be serious.  This is not SU Podium??  That's right....NOT.  ProWalker GPU.  (foot in my mouth if I'm wrong.) And you've seen some of Zeus' images. 

Personally, I think, if you use Windows and have a decent Nvidia GPU, you should have both SU Podium and ProWalker GPU.

Having said that though, SU Podium is more cost effective because you don't need a mid to high end GPU PC.  You can fantastic results on a Mac Book Air....for crying out loud.

I'm not saying for a second that PW isn't great - it is. You get fabulous results really fast. I just think that comparatively speaking - SUPodium's interiors are more subtle.

I also think that the difference might well be able to be dealt with by tonemapping. PW tends to produce richer, more contrasty images, which do look great, but in some cases at the expense of tonal variation. But then again I'm very, very picky [wink]

Anyone who is investing in a new high end Windows machine for rendering using SketchUp I think should seriously consider getting one with a decent NVidia card, and ought to consider ProWalker. Don't mess around with an AMD card, get NVidia, and get ProWalker.

In some respects I prefer ProWalker for exteriors over SUPodium.
