Scandinavian mood

Post Sat Jun 01, 2019 10:18 pm

Hi Yafies ;)

I decided to practice a bit and to recreate a picture that I found on a FB page a long time ago and refound in my hard drives. The goal is not to get the really same result but a close mood.
Yafaray provides a lot of render passes that I used to enhance the result, much more than Cycles for example.
I’ve modeled everything exept the chairs, armchair, stool, coffee maker and the vase ( from Chocofur). The plant on pot was created using the amazing Modular tree addon.

Photon mapping method for rendering and several nodes for post-compositing. Only one area lamp for lighting, and a tonemap node to correct the raw rendering and the passes were used in Photoshop. 2 AA passes for 38mn at 2400px x 1860px.
Yafaray v3.3.0 with Blender 2.78 ( Yafa on BL 2.79 don’t have all the render passes), AMD Ryzen 7 1800x, 32 Go RAM, Win10x64

Final render:

Good work.
Btw: Can you test this using BiDir integrator as you used some years ago?

Great job Olivier, it's quite true to life!
If I were to find something to improve, it would be the depth of the fireplace: it fades to pitch black quite quickly, and it's the only thing that messes with the "immersion": having a gradually lower light that still allows to see the bottom of the fireplace would be perfect, but then you'd have to show the entirety of the logs in said fireplace and it may be quite hard and time-consuming.
