Plz be brutally honest with me on this and let me know how I can improve this render cause I know it is not as good as it could be:

    What are you using to render? It is overly pixilated. Looks like the render was stopped mid processing.

    I used the IRAY I think it is called? I let it render till it said it was done but I thought it was not done for sure not sure why it stopped like that "Shrugs".

    Iray has 3 'stop' conditions...with the time (2 hrs default) being the one that usually stops the render before it's done.

    Is there a way I can fix that?

  • mjc1016mjc1016 Posts: 15,001

    Yes, you can change all three...in the Render settings.  Time is probably the one to change.

    I am excite to share the better render for my "Tip Toe Through The Patio" Scene. I also did a Cartoon one to see how it would turn out.

    Plz be brutally honest with me on these pictures as it will help me to grow better in rendering and such.

    Any advice will not be taken lightly, I need to improve and grow as an artist.

    Congrats on the renders, you're off and running and will soon wonder where all the countless hours have gone while doing art. 

    Okay, one suggestion- where you've cut off the figures in the first scene makes me want the cutoff point to either go up or down. You've got it almost to the feet, but not quite, and you've cut off some of the pumpkin's face but it's right where the mouth/expression is located. My preference would be to either back up the camera so you get that in the image, or zoom in more to the taller characters' faces. It's somewhat in the middle of the two effects. Love the cat's expression and the toon effect. Lighting makes it very easy to see and the shadows add nice emphasis.

    Thank you so much for the nice comments and the advice I will remember that for the next time I do the cartoon render.

    I also forgot to mention the lighting on the second one lights her backside quite nicely. It also brings out the stone details. I like that the wall behind her is darker, whereas both ends of the scene are lit. That darker area make her stand out.

    yes the non cartoon one is much much better than the last one I saw!  I agree with Saphirewild on the cut off point.  And come over and join us on the newbie contest board for this months contest.  Still 10 days left and you will learn a ton! And, its fun lol.

    okies thanks!!! what should I change the time to?

    If you haven't already found the answer elsewhere.

    I usually just add a zero to the default 7200 seconds (2 hours). If you change it to just a zero I've been told it will go on forever (until it's finished or meet one of the other two stop conditions) but I haven't tried that myself.

    The other two stop conditions are "Max Samples" (default 5000) and "Rendering Converged Ratio" (default 95%).

    When your render needs lots of time it usually needs lots of iterations too so it's usually best to increase the Max Samples too when increasing Max Time.

     

    And welcome to the wonderful world of Iray! I'm a newbie myself and most useful stuff, like the above, I've learned here on the forum. It's a great place to be. wink

    This IRay is quite confusing for me right now so I think I will stick to 3Delight for now till I get IRay mastered

    Thanks Sonja11 I have entered 2 renders in the newbie contest and also added a black render to the Oct Challenge. SO I am well on my way I guess with my art!!!! Still loads to learn though for sure.

  • Threads merged.  Please use one thread for your renders.  You can change the title of the thread if you like.

    I think this one is better for the cartoon one the mouth is not cut off this time. I do not think I can get this to work anybetter for what I was thinking.
