    Final Images

    Finally managed to finish the three renders and the short animation I was planning to accompany them.

    Here is the animation:

    Nice images bertrand... good work on materials, but the second camera seems to me too outstretched.

    cheers

    Beautifully rendered, Bertrand!

    P.S. I also like the subtle vibrations on moving cameras =) Once more, nicely executed!

    beautiful shots, really impressive. Maybe a bit noisy(is that caused by the DMC sampler?) If you are done dont forget to put the blank info line! Best regards

    Agreed. The animation looks great. Many congratulations BBB. Another beautiful work.

    I dont know your vray situation, but about Steve Cole post, if you using vray 2.0, did you add in the enviroment system variables (windows) the line Vray old_sampling = 1, like Vlado mentioned recently in chaosgroup to avoid the noise 2.0 new sampling?

    I dont know if the latest update after 2.0 already fixed the noise issue, but that was a huge headache for a lot of people including me.

    Cheers.

    I quite liked the noise initially, but maybe it's a bit too much, especially when seen at high resolution. I do find noise harder to get rid of in recent versions of Vray. I have complex scenes I could render noise-free in a reasonable time in 1.5 but I can't get them clean any more in 2.0 unless I'm ready to let them render for two days.
    I'll see if I can get a cleaner version of the images in time for the end of the challenge.
    Is there anything else one needs to do when filing the final images? I could not see any specific directions on the competition's home page.

    ghm..

    don't really understant why You're stressed out 'bout that noise. It's not 'out of the roof'.

    anyway, treating it rather like a tool and not like an somekind of enemy in the end would give much more realism than plain noiseless render.

    A lot of realworld photographers do fight with that, but what they lack in their 'clean' photos are the feelings..

    in the the opposite end there's a Leica comunity, that has one of the best stuff (fastest lenses in the market, that even in low light they don't have to compromise compensating exposure the with ISO) in their hands to produce noiseless images, but the majority of them simply doesn't really care..WHY?, 'cause it's not important..

    The most important aspect of Your work is that You can capture the moment, frame the feelings inside Your renders. Don't really see the point getting rid of harmless noise (but that ofcourse is only my subjective personal oppinion =)

    Thats really awesome entry for sure,

    I adore the animation very much
    The shots are great i just felt also maybe bit less noisy would be even greater.

    Did u used brute force (maybe it takes much time to clean the noise) maybe irradiance map would be faster and less noisy?
    i am not really sure?
