Better Renderings

Postby Calvin Williams » Thu, Jul 23 2015, 1:19PM

Anyone have any pointers on getting these renderings to look more professional? I struggle with them looking washed out. I add lights, adjust the light intensity and just can't seem to get them right. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I really wish Ecabinets had an stl export feature so I could do rendering/ mock-ups in other programs that specialize in rendering. For now I just end up redrawing things in Sketchup and use a render plug-in. I like using Maxwell Fire b/c it's easy but there are all kinds of plugins to try out and find the best for your situation. If you're just drawing something for looks you don't have to worry about joinery, etc. so it really doesn't take that long to do, just one more step.

There are two light intensity settings. One is a global setting for the overall room. However you can click on a light and choose adjust light intensity for each individual light. You probably just need to turn down the intensity for the two lights in your room.
