Thank you. I truly appreciate.

Unusual is part of what I do for a living. It took me forever to recreate the equipment to specs. This said, I went a little overboard with the precision on SketchUp with 180 edges circles, etc. That cost me tons of time as it significantly slowed down my computer. This said, it truly makes a difference when rendered. I have tried to go over 10.000 pixel for the picture resolution. Podium would not let me and would automatically scale it down.

I tend to like using natural light sources or recreate them when possible. In this case I used an LEM background.

it's not my style but I find it interesting!

 

loved the pair of side pictures, the attention to detail is amazing, what did you use for the electrical wires?

Really nice render! [smile]
Any particular reason to set your PNG Image Output to Transparent?

The style given by the client is art deco. I had to make the acoustics accordingly with what I would call "a daring show off". Of course I removed all acoustics details from the ceiling, the front and back of the room so that it would not take forever to render the scene.
The equipment (MBL) fits actually quite well in an art deco style environment. This said, I agree, the style is not for everyone. In any case, it had to make sense.

As for the wires, I made them myself and used material as follows:

Regarding transparency, It is just in my usual settings in case I have windows and, or openings that I would need to work with on Photoshop.

By the way, I have tried very expensive rendering programs ($2000+) to compare the results with Podium. At the end of the day, I would not find any program at any price to be better or worse for that matter than SU Podium when it comes to photo realistic rendering. Once you know how to handle Podium, anything done with it can be stunning and often fool people to believe that they are looking at a picture. I have seen many amazing renders here in the Podium gallery.

Cool! thanks! I know there is a plugin that makes wires and cables but I never tried out!

I never tried that plugin either. I hardly ever use any plugins. Shape bender is the only one I use. Although there are cool plugins out there for SketchUp. But it looks like most of them have to be purchased.

This cannot go unacclaimed. Certainly has style, and can be appreciated on many levels.

Those are the most frightening looking speakers I have ever seen and the render makes it more so. They look like they'd vaporize the listener with some form of gamma ray burst if you objected to the music. I agree about Podium. It does everything you could ask for. Excellent work!
