From time to time someone on the forum asks about studio setup for rendering.

A few days ago I stumbled upon this article about photography studio setups. I recreated about the same geometry and here is the result.

Studio_setup_01 2015-04-21 22314500000.png

I will make the file available in the Browser.

That's great work! 

Having various studio setups for the browser is a brilliant idea! We can even have a few instruction on how to use them right.

I did save in file instruction on which preset I used and some other settings as an onscreen floating note.

I didn't get around to upload it to the Browser yet, but I will. If you need it you can also build the scene following the photography article.

i would love to see a scene like this for product renderings. I don't get it to render some pictures of a cup who's looking nearly realistic with the right light reflections etc.

if someone bold a scene like this in su podium pls subscribe.

Hi Dave,

Will you ever add this to the browser? This would be extremely helpful!

Thanks

Yeah, I will. The thing is - I only have one studio scene at the moment.

But since I will put one as a free model anyway, I might as well post it here.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for uploading this! I was intending to use this more for chairs, desks and larger products. I didn't realize how small it was, I probably should have realized from the iPad but I dint.  I tired scaling your set up but that didn't work out so well for me. I then tried taking your concept and recreating it with a backdrop I have. I tried it on a chair. What do you think? I didn't PP this yet. I am also struggling with the mesh. I've tried various materials and tried to create my own seamless ones using Hayworth Very mesh samples but there image is so small it’s not recreating well. When I do whole office spaces its less noticeable but on just the chair its stands out.  I also tried using one of the cable materials from the browser and taking the reflection off. I may try a small desk next. Any help would be great!

Thanks

How are set your lights. Generally you need 2 sources one stronger than the other. I think your main light source is not strong enough. See how the Ipad is washed out by light on Davor's render. That's it.

Won't don't you try the mesh on the browser and scale it down.

Also don't use jpegs for this [smile]

I have two lights one is set to 40 the other is set to 2.

Which mesh should I use? I tried PDM Mesh Celle

I used PNG so not sure what you mean about the jpeg?

Tried it again with the mesh from the browser. I lightened the background because then the mesh was getting lost. I boosted one light to 60 and the other to 10.

Guys, this thread is for posting tips & tricks not posting difficulties with them.

That's hijacking the thread. Problems go in the Main Messages Board.
