Hi Nico,

I have tried a photo realistic render for my "Yellow chairs" design TWICE, and each time it failed to render correctly. Although all the lights are on in the ph.r.,  design, it  turned out dark and very grainy, with an armrest on the light cream sofa almost totally black.  I guess I won't do the photo realistic render anymore, unless I can figure out how to do it differently; however, since time is running short on the yellow chairs design, I'll post the design with fewer lights. 

Can you tell me what I might be doing wrong?

Thank you, 

Sincerely,

Lydia Enderle Bell

What's up with all these dark designs? The brief is about designing a Bathroom in dark colors.   I believe that refers to materials used and not the amount of light in the room. Please turn the lights on, I can't vote for designs I can't see!   :)

The brightness is different depending on the PC / Monitor we use to look at the rooms.

You're stating the obvious Hauser. It should not be necessary to adjust  the brightness of a monitor to be able to see a design.

Yes, it should be, but it is a problem of modern monitors we must deal with it unfortunately.  Profs calibrate the monitors for print to get the results they want.  I work with RS on several PCs and Laptops and get results from great to dark compared with the same room.

We are talking about 2 different things here. Yes, you are right about differences in  levels of brightness between monitors and that would be a factor.


However, I'm talking about people creating designs for this particular contest using very few light sources thus making the rooms intentionally and artificially  dark. This I believe is not what the brief intended and has nothing to do with monitor brightness but with design choices.

Yes, and i looked  at the contest and see no room that is so dark that i cannot see anything, like some rooms in the past.

Hello Everyone. I need Help. I've tried all sunlight directions but still no sunlight in my designs

@Gener Morales

Click on the lightbulb in your menu and move the light slider to the right (about 80). You can put the other light slider back to normal.


East at low will probably give you the best result.


You have to hurry up submitting your design, voting starts 3 days before the official end of the contests and you won't be able to submit as soon as voting starts.

It is not necessary to resort to tricks like adding a diagonal wall with windows. 

This is the result after adjusting the light sliders and putting the sun direction on southeast and low.

Can I ask why this contest was particularly short compared to the others? Because of its short duration, I wasn't able to create a room in time. :(

Okay. Thanks for the help @Lifandus. I really appreciate it
