After some heavy-duty exterior work with the Nakagin Capsule Tower, it’s back to basics with this subdued Scandinavian-looking interior.
This scene featuring a small apartment (about 70 square meters, as you may have guessed) was modeled in 3ds Max, as always, and rendered in Corona. Corona is perfect for this kind of work and takes care of the difficult illumination without complaints. Minimal post-work was done in RandomControl’s ArionFX, which is turning into my post-production tool of choice for color-correction, temperature tweaking, and lens effects.
The idea here is maximum realism conveyed through detailed modeling of all visible parts, the use of some 3D-scanned models (the stools, the wood bowl, the pumpkins, the pastry…), complex shaders, and the illumination (the night shots actually show some light contribution from lamp posts on the street outside captured in the HDR maps).
The full scene–including its entire content and separate day and night setups–for 3ds Max 2016 and Corona 1.2.1. is available to downloadhere. You can also download all the final, full-res renders for free, which are available as raw, unprocessed high-dynamic-range .exr images and as post-processed high-quality jpgs.
A few of the assets included are also available separately here, though at the moment they are only shaded for V-Ray (and some of them for Octane).
As always, very keen to hear your comments.
