How to setup an interior scene using Blender Internal render for architecture
The use of Blender Cycles or any other renderer with Blender capable to create good lighting without the need to setup several light sources or intense tweaking with materials, is driving artists away from the Blender Internal render. I see this clearly with my students during class, where almost no one wants to learn to setup an interior scene without Cycles, LuxRender, Indigo, Octane or YafaRay.
But, I still think that you can use “old school” techniques to produce a light setup that is at the same time good and renders really fast on average hardware.
Do you want to see an example of how to setup an interior scene using only the Blender Internal renderer? So, check out this two-part tutorial posted by an artist showing how to setup an interior scene. It takes some time to master the technique, but the results are incredible and demands little time to render.
