I am having difficulties rendering diamonds and gems in
rhino/flamingo. Please share your tips, tricks and any advice that
might help. The renderings I have seen online are crisp and look like
brilliant diamonds. Mine look fair at best.
I am trying to render items on a plain white background. I have
tried changing the ROI between 1.54 and 2.417, I have tried changing
the lighting and adding colored lighting, also increasing the
reflection and transparency numbers. Maybe I have not come upon the
ideal settings - if there are any. Does anyone have some ideal
settings that they would like to share? I have spent so many hours
playing with these settings and am having no luck – figured it was
time to turn to my ganoksin community.
Are there any places where I can download sample diamond materials?
Might it have anything to do with the camera angle - light? Any
suggestions how to move these and where to?
I have been playing with diamonds from http://www.3dlapidary.com/ –
a very cool free place to download mesh diamonds! (I have no relation
to them - just a happy downloader)
Thank you for your help,
