Great stuff and great to see another MR-based arch-viz artist out there.

vegeta.lssj Maybe. I think it's more to do with how people use vray rather than what it's capable of. Anyway best of luck :)

vegeta.lssj well, both are capable of allowing you to produce high-quality images. One is not better "quality" than the other, but I do generally find MR to be slightly easier to obtain high-quality results with than vRay. I think vRay tends to default towards medium quality renders and you need to work hard to push the quality. But then vRay can be considerably faster in certain circumstances after tweaking. It's just what you prefer, really. Personally I use MR for high-end stuff and vRay for anything involving lots of trees or vegetation. You could always use both, then you have the best of both worlds! I hope that helps. PS. MR is in no way unreliable, unpredictable or unstable - I think your machine/setup/scene might be the problem, there.
vegeta.lssj Many thanks for the kind words! Much appreciated.
Lovely work indeed! Very, very nice. And great to see a fellow Mental-head.

ShimonSundruci Many thanks. Well, this project was produced in Mental Ray, but I'll consider producing tutorial videos soon. Thanks again.
Thanks Shimon and glad you enjoyed it. I've not produced any video tutorials before but this is something I've been considering for a while. Thanks for reminding me!
Hi Dave, Many thanks for the kind words. I'm glad this project has inspired you. It is indeed always a tough balancing act between what you want to see and what your client wants to see. They're rarely the same thing as you say! Thanks again for your feedback. Best of luck with your projects!

no, sorry. i'm sure that would be against the licensing terms... 50 euros is not very much when you consider how useful it is! polygonner

Hi Polygonner - you'll need the paid version I think. You can just export from it to an image sequence. I think the website http://www.dualheights.se/caustics should explain how to do it in detail. Cheers,
Like Ronen said, make the software work for you, not the other way around. But in many cases MR can be "easier" to use than VRay. Just depends on the scene, the project, the deadline and the artist. ronenbekerman AhmedMehyar
haha I'm not sure mate! Think that might be worse...! Something calm and tranquil maybe? ArkinAdamEsref

Very, very nice indeed. The only thing throwing me off is that it is very dark and as such I'd expect a longer exposure and therefore streaky/blurry water. At the moment the water appears captured at a very short exposure time, which is great in some ways but I think blurry water might improve it. But I love the mood and lighting and particularly the composition. very nice work!

You sure know how to sell a space, Arkin! Just kidding - wonderful stuff. You've really captured a difficult mood here. My only crit would be the music - I don't think it fits the subject or the atmosphere. Maybe something darker and more classy might be more appropriate.
Would be great to see some more shots, particularly a few nice interiors with rain coming down the windows.
Great stuff :)
3ds london was fantastic thanks Ronen! Amazing turnout (I'm sure everyone was there for Jamie though, really!) and met some very nice and very talented people. Hope you might be able to make it down here one day! ronenbekerman 3dslondon
