We all do a personal project now and then. Some even struggle with doing one, but Mariusz Becker took it upon himself to do one per day for 13 months! You ask why? I let him answer in this case study which will have a following technical article with your help as well (see this at the end of this article).
New build school building for Stephen Perse Foundation in Cambridge. Image copyright LSI Architects. Modelled in ArchiCAD, rendered in Maxwell Render and post processed in Photoshop.
We’re very happy to see Kast Kaeppeli Architects from Berne and Bâle, who we have known for a long time and have enjoyed working with on numerous occasions, win this competition for the Erlach nursery schools.
We were pretty excited that they followed our suggestion for a one-point perspective and couldn’t be happier that their courage paid off. The surrounding landscape lent itself to a soft and dreamy light and mood, that then again made it easy to show the chosen materials and even some critical technical details such as the accessibility ramp.
This project was developed at university and it has been re-rendered after a few years using Rhino, Maxwell Render and Photoshop.
Here I am to compare two incredible render engines like VRayforC4D and Maxwell Render on an interior scene created in Cinema4D.
I often work with both of them but obviously not on the same project. I decided to model this scene and recreate a typical Ikea set to compare render speed, image cleaning, settings and materials used for the same set, lights and camera settings.
This test doesn’t want to figure out which is the best render engine simply because it would not be possible, each of them has its own characteristics and they are two excellent products. It would be like comparing Canon and Nikon!
In this test I used 1.9 versions of VRayforC4D and 3.2.5 version of Maxwell Render, both of CPU. The images are rendered on clients with two quad Xeon 2.13 Ghz.
