[Max] I need help! / Noise Limits
« on: 2022-09-27, 15:33:24 »

Just a quick question, regarding noise limits.

What are people noise limit settings? I have been using 4% when rendering out scenes at 2880x1920 and adding a denoise at 0.5. What would people recommend?

The images are mainly used for web and sending to clients before building starts.

Thanks for the help in advance!

[Max] I need help! / Post Production Workflow
« on: 2022-09-22, 16:00:37 »

I have been working on a number of interior renders over the past few months, but I have been struggling with the post production side and what way will give me the best results.

I normally set up all my lights and separate them with light select. My render passes then have the beauty pass, reflect, refract, ID, bloom and glare, all of the different lights I use and the interactive light mix. I would then put this into photoshop where I would overlay the lights on the beauty and use screen mode and a slight bit of camera raw for the base pass. (Normally save all the passes from corona image editor as a JPG) But I haven't been sure what one to use as my base. The beauty pass or light-mix pass as my base render?

Any help on this or any other post production ways to get the best results would be supper helpful!!

Thanks again in advance!

Work in Progress/Tests / Bedroom Scene
« on: 2022-07-02, 23:00:18 »
First time posting in a while. Working on a set of interior renders for a client and he wanted a bedroom scene like I have shown in this image. Would like some feedback on the render! (Tonemapping/overall render/any changes)

All feedback is helpful since I need to do 4 more in different rooms!


PS : (Using a 3D collective LUT and also for the downlights the corona standard IES)

[Max] I need help! / Adding Depth to Archviz Images?
« on: 2022-04-30, 19:13:34 »
So I have been struggling with adding more depth/atmosphere to my scenes.

The example I have attached shows a current one I am working on. I need to show how far back the large tube is, currently in this render is seams very close to the house, when in reality it is quite the way back.

Is there anything people would suggest? (I was thinking possibly atmospheric fog or aerial perspective)

For the sky I have been using HDRI's from PGSkies.

I also need to show trees in the background of the field, but when I add these it feels like they are directly behind the render when they are far back!


[Max] I need help! / Best Render and Noise Settings
« on: 2022-04-07, 22:31:11 »
I have been spending a while getting the hang of the basic settings, These are the ones I have been using for a while now. (Attached Below) There have been a few questions that have popped up to me...

1. What Noise limit would be best for a final render (Mainly used in architectural renders shown on screens)

2. I have been using 2.0 sharping, is there typically a better amount to use?

3. I have been rendering at 3000x1688. This seams to be rendering quickly for me (Renders taking 20mins to an hour in some cases) This there a better size people would recommend.

I am trying to get a cleaner and sharper image that will improve my workflow!

Any help would be massively appreciated and help alot!

[Max] I need help! / Material Build up
« on: 2021-11-26, 14:42:20 »
Sorry if this sounds stupid, but dose anyone have a typical build up of materials? Struggling to find a example of what slots to put each map into

[Max] I need help! / Sketchup to 3DS Max workflow
« on: 2021-11-16, 15:40:29 »
Dose anyone model in SketchUp and import into 3ds after?

I have been modelling in SketchUp for a while and want to get the full workflow from SketchUp to max. When I do a simple import it works fine until I start to use chamfer edges and other commands. Is there a way to clean up the SketchUp files once in max?

Any help would be hugely appreciated!

General CG Discussion / Designer Furniture Downloads
« on: 2021-11-02, 14:25:40 »
Has anyone had experience from downloading designer furniture from furniture websites? They seam to come without any textures included on them. Would it be best to add my own textures to them?

Also dose anyone know of other websites what are great for getting furniture models?

Thanks in advance!

General CG Discussion / CGAxis Models
« on: 2021-10-19, 16:57:15 »
Just wondering if anyone has been using models from CGAxis and what the quality of them is like. There is an offer on there subscription plan with 60% off.

 Anyone have any thoughts on this since there seams to be a lot of models on there. Thanks!

[Max] I need help! / HDRI - Multiplier Value
« on: 2021-07-16, 14:53:58 »
I have recently been using HDRI's from PG Skies and also 3D Collective. A lot of the guides have been saying use the multiplier value (Eg 3D Collective say +32).

Where would I find this? It seams like my skies do not have the same wow factor as shown on the websites.

I have been using a physical camera with basic setting, or should I be using a corona camera?

Any help would be amazing!

[Max] I need help! / Render Settings - Image Not Sharp
« on: 2021-04-20, 22:10:20 »
Hi All,

Hope you will be able to give me some tips, When rendering out my image it seams to come out blurry and not as sharp as the images I have seen on the gallery.

Any advice would be extremely helpful


[Max] I need help! / 3DS Max or SketchUp : Best for Archviz
« on: 2021-02-21, 18:24:03 »
I have recently got into rendering and working with corona as well as 3ds max.

For years I have used SketchUp and while in Uni and I have been exporting into 3ds max to render out the models. What would be better to get realistic results for architectural renders?

Would it be best to carry on with modelling in SketchUp and then importing into 3ds max or do I spend the time to learn modelling in 3ds max. I have a basic understanding of max at the moment.

Gallery / First Exterior Render
« on: 2020-12-11, 20:33:45 »
Very new to corona and rendering as a whole, but have lots of experience with modelling over years of university. Finally took the plunge into 3ds max and after some trial and error managed to create a small exterior render of a house near where I live. I know some of the sections do not have any material assigned to them, but I wanted to share this with the community to get some feedback and hopefully improve my skills.
