Thank you for much for the awesome response, you tackled each of my problems and I’ve spent the last two days sorting through everything here with my updates:
You can find the packed project here:
I think a lot of the issues resulted in incorrect or unavailable textures
(Quick reminder this isn’t my project file, it’s one i found for free online at TurboSquid so i am working from that and that is probably why there are so many mismatched textures - is there a way to quickly change textures or do you have to do it one by one by finding and clicking through them?
Light is leaking through the door - There is likely a light inside your walls. See if you can find
My poster is not appearing in the picture frame - possibly a reversed face that it was applied to (set model to ‘Monochrome mode’ to check.
My background image is not appearing - as in HDRI or image placed outside of the window? It’s possible the sun exposure settings are just blowing the image out since it has a hard time balancing brightness for inside and outside at the same time.
My Computer screen is transparent - Looks reflective to me. It seems to be reflecting the computer chair back.
There is a TON of noise - Turn on the ‘Denoiser’ setting.
My black plastic elements (Phone, computer chassis, Screen Chair etc) is all pink? - Sounds like a bad material reference. Try using a new/different black plastic material from the V-Ray default library and replace the previous material reference.
Light is leaking through the door
To solve this i increased the size of the door i think there was a gap that was leaking light through. The light source was coming from outside.
My poster is not appearing in the picture frame
I removed it and added it again and now it’s appearing
My Computer screen is transparent
Solved this one too
There is a TON of noise
I was using the incorrect render mode “Interactive” and my ‘denoiser’ wasn’t available i have since switched to Progressive and now i have more options to play with so noise has been removed
My black plastic elements (Phone, computer chassis, Screen Chair etc) is all pink?
You were spot on here… I changed the plastic to another V-Ray library plastic and it looks black now i did this throughout and that solved a lot of my issues.
So i have come quite far since your response trying to make as many corrections as possible and to learn as much as i can about VRay but i still have a very long way to go!
This is my latest export:
As you can see a lot of the issues have been solved but i still have a few more:
Light is now leaking through the bottom of my cupboards (initially they were transparent) but i changed the texture/material and that solved the leak but now it’s back and i’ve tried to change the edges, surfaces etc but the light leak doesn’t go away
Inconsistent Shadows throughout
The ceiling above my desk has gone black and i have NO idea why? I have these two errors that pop up when i render:
Subpixel color mapping is on: rendered result may have incorrect brightness.
I saw a video that explains how to remove this but i did not work
Max ray intensity is enabled: rendered result may have incorrect brightness.
Here is my full render log:
- I still can’t get my background image to appear through the window and the result is that there is an infinite amount of brightness peaking through the window and that is causing crazy shadows throughout the room
Thank you so much for the help i really appreciate it!
