Hi there!
Here's a house I'm actually working on. As always comments and critics are more than welcome.Weber_neu11 2019-04-22 13520600000 Kopie Kopie.jpg

How did you blur the car in the background. Or is that an image.

As a quick indicative render, it's okay!

There isn't much detail in the model (no eaves, no gutters etc) but it's good enough for a quick impression.

The glass on your balcony looks weird. Is it supposed to be frosted?

If it is, use a pale grey and check the translucency box.

If not, use a very dark grey as a base colour for the glass, use D0,T90,T10 in the materials editor and make sure that in >Options >Environment 'Translucent color' is unchecked.

The photoshopped grass isn't good. It makes the foreground look very flat.

Considering the rest of the scene, you would be better off using one of our grass materials.

Thanks for your comments.
@davew: It's done with the motion blur in ps. Just select the car, choose motion blur and set the strenght of the motion blur.
@bigstick: It's true, there are not so many details on that building. It is supposed to be very clen and simple. There are eaves and gutters, but they are painted in dark grey...so hard to see (similar to the building on the photo below)

The glass on the balcony shouldn't be frosted...it should be transparent. Ist a glas material from the podium browser. It should be more or less like this:

The gras textures from the podium browser looking to flat to me and the 2,5D grass takes to long to render, so I thought it would be good to insert it in pp...maybe I should rethink that.

Ah, I see the gutter now :)

The roof still looks like a simple extruded thickness though. You always see the thickness of the roofing material projecting beyond the eaves unless it is the same material. You can see that on the reference photo.

If you have chosen a glass material from the Browser, you have chosen the wrong one, or not applied it properly. Applying transparent materials to geometry with thickness can be tricky. The glass material needs to be applied to the interior and exterior. This can be done by applying the material to a group, as long as the previous material was the default one.

If you explicitly assigned a material to the internal and external faces of your geometry you need to do the same thing with your glass. Normally it’s fine as long as you don’t mix methods!

The best glass material for this is probably the ‘thin glass’.

Also, we have a new dynamic glass balustrade component in the Browser [wink]

The roof edge is better but the verge/fascia look too thin.

The glass is still wrong and the grass is still photoshopped.

You have changed the wood texture, but the scale is not realistic. Those timber boards on the wall are deeper than on the fascia, which should not be the case. Actually it should be the other way around...

When you photoshop grass, you have to be really careful, because the lighting doesn't match the scene.

Have you unchecked the 'Translucent color' box?

Check the glass settings as well.
