Blender 2.8 and architecture: Living room and kitchen
How close to a Cycles can we push a render in Eevee? That will depend on a lot of factors, but we can easily say that in the hands of a skilled artist, you can make some incredible renders with Eevee.
Even with the limitations of a real-time render engine, like Eevee, that doesn't use the same accuracy regarding lights and physics.
One aspect of the rendering with Eevee that will catch your attention is the overall production time. You can get projects with multiple renders done in a couple of hours.
Do you want to see an example? Look at this beautiful set of renders from a residential interior, made by artist easydream.
The artist shows lots of views from the interior using Blender 2.8 and Eevee.
You will notice the artist pointing that it took about 4 hours to complete the project. Is that render time? No! That is the total time spent during the project. Four hours to get those quality images is impressive for productivity.
If you run an architectural visualization business, that speed could positively transform your workflow.
