Lasse, I really can't thank you enough for this lesson. The Brute Force section was really eye opening. This article has to be the root cause of why we're all seeing so many BF renderings lately. Really inspiring stuff.
Amazing article, full of details, techniques, tips and payless advises, thank you so much to share your knowledge with us!
Great Article. I been looking at adverts about 5srw method of rendering and I guess it talks the same as specified in this article. Thanks a ton.
thanks a lot for all the positive feedback - it's very much appreciated!
I really had a lot of fun writing this article and am very happy you had fun reading it ;)
all the best
@vizcon3d Pat r u back from vacación? I hope everything went smooth my friend! :)
Really niec article :) I will print this and have a study again :)
I have got a Question to ask . 1:) The way you have described the workflow here to get extreme Photo-Real visualz do you also go with this same way or will go be going in Future to all the clients or does this stay for personal study projects only ?
2) If so dont you think the Time increases for such a work for commercial projects ?
Really great article! Especially for trying such basic issues and so rarely treated. Many times people are desperate to reach the art without know exactly what is at the root of it.

Great Article! Thanks for your time.
I've been fighting for the cause of the 35/50mm shots rather than 18mm or lower... but it seems the client is a rare specimen who sees the world through a fisheye!
best Article since a long time! I was digging in very deep :)
Greetings from Renderbar . . .
@miguelafi : am fine and in shape Miguel, had a splendid holiday, lots of snow and ..beers!!
@benobro no, the client isn't a rare specimen. They simply want to see as much of their space as possible. They're also been conditioned to seeing space shot that way through PHOTOGRAPHS. Generally one does not want to portray a sense of claustrophobia in a space they're trying to sell.
@benobro i have always the same problem with "fisheye-clients"
@haydenm @benobro @st.germain yes that is a sad truth :) but a very interesting thing is that when showing everything - even with wide angle - it might make your space looking smaller than showing just a part of it.
it is somehow a contradiction if you want the bigness by showing the space's boundaries. a very common misunderstanding.
the bigness lies in the parts you not show - where the imagination starts. it is not about claustrophobia - more about the opposite
@lasse yes i totally agree with you! and my explanation with clients is very similar to yours. but in the end they mostly choose the fisheye-picture because they don`t want to pay for more renderings :( . . .
