Here is another version with lower exponent on the cups (2000 instead of 100000) and a heavily blurred bump map. Somehow I like it less than the first. But I've also exported and reimported the mesh of the cup in focus which seemed to have a slight normals smoothing problem in the inner rim. I've al...

Danke, danke, Mr Carnivore: The cups are just a simple white phong material, but the effect probably comes from a too high exponent. I'll try again with a lower figure. It's also hard to get the optimal value for the bump map, as the surface only appears clearly after a long time rendering. I was th...

Thanks. Much appreciated. These Blender softbody simulations are mind-boggling. I still haven't figured them out. Half the time, my tablecloth jumps in all direction and ends up on the floor wrapped into a small ball :lol:

And another one in the same spirit (with different cups and a cloth simulation). That's it now, not hungry any more...

But isn't it supposed to take longer? That was my assumption and the reason why I didn't use it in Indigo 06...

Yes I have. Actually, my original idea was to have artificial lighting for the kitchen piece, but it was just taking way too long to cook (I just have a twin core at 1.6gh). Here's a render, which ran for about 12 hours and is still very grainy even though the picture is much smaller than the other ...

I'll post a night render soon (it's on another computer now). I interrupted it because it was taking way too long and it didn't look particularly nice. I obviously need to work on artificial lighting for the kitchen scene...

Thanks to both of you. Radiance: Yes, I think I've got some monitor calibration problems. The two images look a lot darker on my desktop screen as they do on my laptop. I see what you mean regarding contrast on the second piece. Nik: Both images were done with Indigo 07 test 5. Both modelled in Blen...
