Renderworks - is it worth the effort

Recommended Posts

you can get some fantastic renders using renderworks.....but it needs real-time rendering to save hours and hours of time doing pre-renders...this is where artlantis comes into its own change a light see the result change a texture see the result instantly.... but i have to say some my best renders have been using renderworks but boy o boy you have to be patient and be prepared to spend many hours of testing and pre-rendering and have the machine powerful enough to implement the full range of renderworks features......great product just needs that real-time update to make it worth the while........

Must admit - I've always ignored the cloud offer from VWX. I generally work alone 😢 So haven't had the need - but I'll check it out. 

@Andrew Davies I just happened upon this comment of yours about Vectorworks Cloud Services. I hope you’ve had a chance to check it out since you posted. Cloud Services is actually great for individual users, because it’s like you have a second computer available to render your sheet layers. It does quite a bit more too. The descriptions along the bottom of the login page help explain what one can use it for.

 

If you haven’t given it a good look, I encourage you to do so... It can add some rather interesting abilities to your workflows.

Hi Neil

 

That is quite an old post I think!  I have checked it out - and actually need to eat my words. Couldn't agree more!

Cinema 4d ( and Vray) does allow for some stunning photorealistic renderings.  I personally use c4d with Vray, in conjunction with VW primarily for interior renderings.  I won't elaborate why in this missive.  That said, VW Renderworks does do a more than adequate job for most Rendering projects. In a perfect world I feel it makes sense to have C4d and VW.  Just my two cents.

Regarding Renderworks, check out the attached Exterior Rendering I just created featuring a home I am currently designing.  I live in French Polynesia,  so I placed the residence into a local environment scene that I created.

yeah, it is tough......but somebody had to do it.  🙂

I am a fortunate guy to live in a place like this, I must say.

Yes, I thought there would be some smart arse comment to that. That's the orchid in it...and yes, I'm sure I could have created image prop, so here is the JPEG. Obviously no reflection in the mirror.

Apologies there.

These renders were directly out of VWX Renderworks 2014. Using the 'Realistic Interior Final'. Got to say, it surprised me when I saw it.

Here's another couple done at the same time, although these are a bit more brash in their design.676676228_LinnDiaNew.thumb.jpg.5eed95e54d19c0adff6a521d7049a5c1.jpg1486757795_BarDiaNew.thumb.jpg.0eeec6a33c2d55ba92761a084976b5d0.jpg
