Final Render

In this article, Fox Renderfarm, the best could rendering services provider, will share with you a Redshift production breakdown and experience sharing from lighting/rendering artist Jiaxuan Wang.

Introduction: Hi, everyone! This is Jiaxuan Wang. I’m so happy to have gained some popularity for my artwork and have seen my progress along the way.

We were given a pretty complex theme, especially on the modeling and lighting. I rendered it with Redshift.

Render without Lighting

Render without Lighting

We can separate the models into 6 sections: foreground, the bridge, architectures on both sides, the cathedral, background and the crowd. When I started dealing with the rendering, it took a very long time since there were too many polygons. Before I could optimize the models, it took nearly 6 minutes just to read the models. So I decided to separate the models. Coincidentally, I found that after dealing with some unnecessary UVs, and combining some models, the time of the input process and the size of the files both would shrink drastically. This allowed me to manage the lighting and rendering with all the models. Thus, for the second time, I input all the 6 files into one to render with Reference. Speaking of texturing, most of the models are attached with textures. Some silhouettes and simple models, I chose to use simple color texture to save time. And the lighting part, besides the radiating window, there are 240 lights in total. A lot of Area Lights were used. Through adjusting the position, strength and so forth to add more details.

The first render is not that satisfying. Since this is my first time dealing with this kind of fantasy style, I paid too much attention to working on the fog but ignored the importance of basic lights. Additionally, I just simply multiplied the lights without finding the main light source, which turned out to be a lot of shadows and strong contrast without fine details. My teacher recorded a long video to give me some advice, telling me details like the foreground is too bright, it is too hollow under the bridge, there is no visual focus in the image, etc. I was more experienced on my second render. And I began to think like a concept artist, considering the position of the lights and how I want the shadows and contrast to transit in the picture. Then comes the ambient adjustment, about the fog. Most of them were composited in Nuke afterwards according to my teachers’ advice.

Fox Renderfarm Launches GPU Rendering
Fox Renderfarm Launches GPU Rendering
Rendering and previewing in a flash! The craze for Marvel’s superhero movie Deadpool swept over the world.As the first full CGI realistic human feature film in Asia, Legend of Ravaging Dynasties dominated the headlines once the trailer came out.These two movies were rendered with GPU rendering engines.Obviously, GPU computing card and GPU rendering engines are gradually used in film production. It is a good start!Now, as the leading render farm in the industry, Fox Renderfarm launches GPU rendering. Let’s start free trial with Fox Renderfarm’s GPU rendering. Let’s get it started! What’s the differences between GPU and CPU? A simple way to understand the difference between a CPU and GPU is to compare how they process tasks. A CPU consists of a few cores optimized for sequential serial processing, while a GPU has a massively parallel architecture consisting of thousands of smaller, more efficient cores designed for handling multiple tasks simultaneously. Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman made a painting demonstration to show the difference between CPU and GPU: Mythbusters Demo GPU versus CPU What’s the advantage of GPU Rendering ?In the field of graphics rendering, not only films and animations, but also CG art, GPU with its computing ability and architecture specially designed for graphics acceleration provides the users with a more efficient rendering solution, namely the GPU rendering solution. GPU rendering has great advantage of fast speed and low cost. Moreover, GPU rendering becomes more and more available now, lots of works with high quality rendered with GPU has come out. GPU rendering tends to be popular with users at home and abroad.Thinking of the CPU as the manager of a factory, thoughtfully making tough decisions. GPU, on the other hand, is more like an entire group of workers at the factory. While they can’t do the same type of computing, they can handle many, many more tasks at once without becoming overwhelmed. Many rendering tasks are the kind of repetitive, brute-force functions GPUs are good at. Plus, you can stack several GPUs into one computer. This all means GPU systems can often render much, much faster!There is also a huge advantage that comes along in CG production. GPU rendering is so fast it can often provide real-time feedback while working. No more going to get a cup of coffee while your preview render chugs away. You can see material and lighting changes happen before your eyes.GPU Renderer 1.Redshift is the world’s first fully GPU-accelerated, biased renderer and it is also the most popular GPU renderer. Redshift uses approximation and interpolation techniques to achieve noise-free results with relatively few samples, making it much faster than unbiased rendering. From rendering effects, Redshift can reach the highest level of GPU rendering, and render high quality movie-level images.2.Blender Cycles is Blender’s ray-trace based and unbiased rendering engine that offers stunning ultra-realistic rendering. Cycles can be used as part of Blender and as stand-alone, making it a perfect solution for massive rendering on clusters or at cloud providers.3.NVIDIA Iray is a highly interactive and intuitive, physically based rendering solution. NVIDIA Iray rendering simulates real world lighting and practical material definitions so that anyone can interactively design and create the most complex of scenes. Iray provides multiple rendering modes addressing a spectrum of use cases requiring realtime and interactive feedback to physically based, photorealistic visualizations.4.OctaneRender is the world’s first and fastest GPU-accelerated, unbiased, physically correct renderer. It means that Octane uses the graphics card in your computer to render photo-realistic images super fast. With Octane’s parallel compute capabilities, you can create stunning works in a fraction of the time.5.V-Ray RT (Real-Time) is Chaos Group's interactive rendering engine that can utilize both CPU and GPU hardware acceleration to see updates to rendered images in real time as objects, lights, and materials are edited within the scene.6.Indigo Renderer is an unbiased, physically based and photorealistic renderer which simulates the physics of light to achieve near-perfect image realism. With an advanced physical camera model, a super-realistic materials system and the ability to simulate complex lighting situations through Metropolis Light Transport, Indigo Renderer is capable of producing the highest levels of realism demanded by architectural and product visualization.7.LuxRender is a physically based and unbiased rendering engine. Based on state of the art algorithms, LuxRender simulates the flow of light according to physical equations, thus producing realistic images of photographic quality. GPU Computing Card Parameter Table Now Fox Renderfarm is applicable to Redshift for Maya and Blender Cycles. There are more than 100 pieces of NVIDIA Tesla M40 cards in Fox Renderfarm cluster, each server has 128G system memory with two M40 computing cards. Welcome to Fox Renderfarm to experience the super fast GPU cloud rendering!

Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene
Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene
As a leading render farm in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm supports major software, renderers and plug-ins including Cinema 4D, Redshift. The text and images in this article refer to a tutorial produced by an artist named 1314, a rendering guide for a glass and ceramic class of Redshift for C4D. Fox Renderfarm hopes that sharing this tutorial will help more people learn Redshift for C4D. The difficulty in the production of this tutorial is the adjustment of the material of glass and water. The materials for wood and metal forks are made using textures.The final rendering is as follows:!Using-Redshift-For-Cinema-4D-To-Render-a-Glass-Ceramic-SceneThe part of the scene building model is very simple and consists of several elements: cola bottles, bowls and water, chopsticks, forks, plates, tablecloths and tables. One of the parts to note is that the cola bottle and the cola water inside are made up of two models, and the model of the cola water needs to be made separately.Now we mainly explain the lighting and rendering parts.LightingCreate an area of light that adjusts the direction of the light, which is used to reflect the high light of ceramics and glass. Create a camera and change it to Redshift mode. It can now be seen that the rendering is still dark. !Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (4) Create a Redshift material to increase the brightness and intensity of the Area light and test the brightness of the picture. Some of the northern part is dark, you need to open the GI part and brighten the dark part to see the details. And add a Dome Light to the scene, using an indoor texture to reflect the HDR. This part needs constant adjustment to find the most appropriate angle.!Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (5) MaterialFirst create a Redshift material to adjust the texture of the water. The water material is very simple, the most important part to remember: the water LOR is at 1.333.The bowl and the saucer use the same material and add a texture.!Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (3)The chopsticks are rough, remember to reduce the reflection, and the Reflection/Roughness value should be higher. In addition to Color, a Bump map has been added to add chopsticks to the wood texture.!Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (6)The IOR of the cola bottle is adjusted to 1.6, and the Samples of the Refraction/Transmission are adjusted to the highest. The IOR of the cola water is adjusted to 1.3!Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (7) The reflection of the metal is the highest and the IOR of the fork is adjusted to 3. !Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (8)The tablecloth uses a texture that lowers Weifht and reduces the texture a bit. The table also uses a wood grain map.!Using Redshift For Cinema 4D To Render a Glass Ceramic Scene (1) Now all the textures have been completed, but the light on the table is a bit exposed. In the production, it is necessary to leave some room for the later adjustment. If the exposure is too much, it will not be adjusted in the later stage. Therefore, when making, it should be neutral, not too dark or too bright, and used for later adjustment.In the Filter can also be adjusted, brightness, hue, saturation and the like, so here you can adjust and test the rendering to see the effect. Now try to weaken HDR a little bit. Then perform a rendering test.Now you can see that the refraction of ceramics, forks, glass and water is very good. Fox Renderfarm hopes it will be of some help to you. It is well known that Fox Renderfarm is an excellent cloud rendering services provider in the CG world, so if you need to find a render farm, why not try Fox Renderfarm, which is offering a free $25 trial for new users?
