Rendering a bedroom with Blender Cycles
Shortly we will have a great addition for architectural visualization artists using Blender, which is the new Blender render engine called Cycles. I’m studying Cycles a lot, because I want to start working on as many projects as I can use it, and because I’m building an online course about Cycles. So far the course is for Brazilian Portuguese speakers only, but I do have plans to start some online courses related to architecture. And one of the first courses would be about Cycles for architecture.
In the meantime, you can check out a beautiful example of what we can do with Cycles for design in this project available to download at BlendSwap. It is a full scene rendered with Cycles showing a bedroom. The file has all the geometry, but no textures. Even without the textures, we can learn a lot about how to light up a scene using Cycles for interior visualization.
