Hi

Victorian Living Room, Dining Room & Restroom renders of a project we're currently working on. C&c welcome. Tks.

I always struggle with interior lighting, but you nailed it. Awesome work.

Thanks for the kind words CSO. Yes, interior renders in Lumion are rare to find as mostly guys prefer to use raytracing engines such as vray for interior renders & Lumion for exteriors. However, coming from vray background myself, I can confidently state GI workarounds for artificially lit interiors (not using sunlight at all) are possible and if done correctly they can result in equally real or better outputs than vray or other raytracing engines.

We do a great deal interior work as compared to exteriors, I will be posting more images shortly and also my workflow for interior renders. Cheers.

This sounds fantastic! As somebody who came from Vray myself, I’ve gotten exteriors down pretty good in Lumion. Interiors still give me some grief. My clients are getting happier with what I can do on the interior, but they still agree that my Vray interiors are better. But it’s so inefficient to do both. I would love to know more about your workflow!

It really is all about the lighting. Knowing that you aren’t using sunlight is a good place for me to start with experiments as that hadn’t really crossed my mind.

Hi Muchcattle, thanks. Yes, you're right. Since vray's raytracing algorithm uses GI and light bounces differently. It actually does that conventionally, by calculation of the rendering equation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rendering_equation via montecarlo/bruteforce/mll or allied methods which are physically correct but hugely time consuming, Lumion does that by on the fly via finite approximation method which is phenomenally quick, however, a bit limited in realism in interior renders. Why there isn't much difference between vray rendered exteriors and those rendered via Lumion is due to the fact exterior renders don't really need GI for light bounces, something that we need to address in Lumion interior renders.

I will surely try to make a tutorial on how get around the GI issue in rendering fully artificially sans-sunlight lit interiors in Lumion shortly, as soon as I find time... thanks again !
