Benchmark – Hi Qlty

These images are ray traced views used to establish a benchmark for quality of out put vs. running time for settings for Chief Architect ray tracing function with settings for Interiors set at the “High Quality” level.  They are not examples of final renderings as I would produce them for clients because there is always a little touching up that needs to be done.  However, it appears the High Quality level is optimal for interior ray traces even at lower settings than some of the “Standard” renders taken at higher settings (more passes and higher photon levels in photon mapping).

#1 High Quality - 9 samples, ambient occlusion & environmental light enabled, photon mapping on, caustic photons 25, indirect photons 15. Final gathering 49, 3 hrs.
