Thank you Shalom. Still struggling with the right settings. Becasue of the displacement, transparency/refraction/SSS and AO, Im getting astronomical render times in both the Physical Renderer and via GI. This shot is straight AR–nothing fancy. But I really want to make use of the Physical renderer in animation. Starting to think about buying VRAY. We’ll see.Thanks for your interest!
Good to hear of the specific details of your render. In moment of enthusiasm and optimism, I bought VRay4C4D, but haven’t put it much to use, as I’m still learning the basics of C4D. I didn’t realize how involved it would be to learn. If you’re interested in buying my license (in a totally legitimate way), let me know. I think you’re the kind of artist who could really put VRay to great use. [I still have a long way to go until I get there...]
Amazing render test. I can’t wait to see the final result!
