This interior is composed of more than a hundred different models. They are mapped and ready to use on other projects. Below you will find a presentation of some of them.

Most our scenes are lit by VraySun & VraySky.  This time is lit by Skyportal only. This is because in order to achieve a soft light as in the case of a cloudy day.

This time is lit by Skyportal only. This is because in order to achieve a soft light as in the case of a cloudy day.The Environment section in V-Ray render parameters is where you can specify a color and a texture map to be used during GI and reflection/refraction calculations. If you don't specify a color/map then the background color and map specified in the 3ds Max Environment dialog will be used by default.

Hi there, I'm under the impression that the color correction map does not support high dynamic range images. I see that you are using the color correction to desaturate the vray sky map... have you noticed that it limits the amount of light produced?

Hi Tron, I did not notice that it changed the intensity of light. You can always change the "shutter speed" in camera to control this if you need :)
