Thanks guys for the tips. I'm going to go over this one and check the scale on all objects. I just did it like that. No measurement or anything. So I could be wildly wrong.

Oleg: Thanks for all your points mate. I'll have a look at the lamps and you're making a good point on the glass. I'll see if I can darken it a bit and check the IOR again to make sure it's right. Right now it is purely transparent. As for the door, it's not really a door but one of these glass panels you can't open. That's why it has no hinges either.

By the way, it would be really cool to see these models. I modelled this one from memory so it's surely all wrong.

The 'n' key in blender is your friend ;) Pick a scale (i use 1 BU = 1 indigo centimeter) and then watch the numeric panel as you are scaling etc to get things roughly the right size, or enter numbers directly to get them exact :P

Here's an update. I'm not sure this is going anywhere. I don't really like the composition. I tried to make the glass darker for more reflection, and it seemed to work at first, but the final render doesn't show much difference. At least, the scale is now correct (I think). I'm still missing a tree but couldn't find one I like...

It would increase your render time a lot, I guess, but did you think of using one of Wyt's tabulated spectrum glasses?

Still empty, but it looks a lot better, now :)

Thanks Mate. Will give it a go.

Thanks for the kind words. Not sure about TSGlass... This took 20 hours to cook on a Quad, and it wasn't even the version with glass (the glass reflections were pasted over from an earlier render)

You could also use arbaro, afaik it bases on the same algorithm, but is a standalone java app.

I gave Arbaro a spin a while ago and I couldn't make any sense out of it. Onyx seems very nice (http://www.onyxtree.com/) but it's quite expensive just for trees.

(Here is an earlier version I let cook over a couple of days - 95 hours! The chair can be downloaded for free from the Fritz Hansen website, as well as all of their furniture models, though not all have this quality.)

I really like the floor.

Did you use spec-map (i.e. exponent-map) or bump-map or both?

Thanks Marco. That's a very nice tree and very much what I was looking for. Let me see if I can grab it.

Hallo! I used both exponent and bump maps. The settings in Blendigo are as follows: Albedo (diffuse) texture map; bump map with a gamma setting of 0.008; Specular (i.e. exponent) map with a gamma setting of 6.0 and A=0, B=2000, C=1.
I'll upload the textures (made from photographs) soon.

Funny you should mention that. I just uploaded a whole whack of textures today (well, ok, three textures) and will upload that very floor tomorrow. Go take a look at my texture thread here:
