    Looking for a Floor Generator

    Hi, I used this for one of my projects, check it Cheers, Danijel

    need tips on lighting

    If you have exterior scene with clear sky and bright sun, type of shadow that should be used is hard shadows with physical falloff, in order to get same look like in nature. If you have overcast sky, sun intensity will be lower, and therefore shadow type that should be used is soft shadow. Look at real life photos, study them, and you will learn a lot about these things ;).

    need tips on lighting

    Hi, It's pretty simple, make your 3d scene as it's in real life, if your goal is realism/photorealism. For example, if you want to make exterior house/building rendering, for lighting you need to have sun and sky, so you can use physical sky (if rendering with standard/physical render engine), or sky object with environment hdr image on it, with GI turned on. It depends what you want to achieve/show, but main point is to think like in real life, and then simulate same principles inside 3d scene. Of course, you need to know some theory and facts about how lighting works, how shadows works, some photography basics (depth of field, fov, type of camera lenses, aperture, ISO values, and other), and lot other things. Cheers,

    Thanks, btw it's very old work from 2012-2013 :). My current work you can see here http://www.uniart3d.com/, 3d modeling&rendering, and 3d animation pages. Cheers,

    GPU with c4d

    In nvidia control panel, when you go to Manage 3D settings, you have option "Power management mode", set this to "Prefer maximum performance", see if that helps.

    Hi, is there remote posibility for 3D Generalist, or just in-house?

    GPU with c4d

    Np, btw, I have in the past GTX 1060 6Gb card, Zotac AMP! Edition (now 2 x Gigabyte GTX 1080 8Gb G1), and Redshift benchmark score was ~22 for 1060, and ~8 for 2xGTX 1080, for comparasion. Cheers,

    GPU with c4d

    Run Heaven benchmark, open GPU-Z and see if PCIe x16 is switched to 3.0

    GPU with c4d

    It's showing PCIe x 16 in 1.1 mode because it's in 2D desktop mode currently, no 3D activated, that's normal, as soon as 3D is activated PCIe x16 will switch to 3.0 (check this, run Heaven benchmark and monitor). Btw, strange that gpu-z is not detecting many things such as Computing, OpenCL, CUDA, GPU clock, Memory.... all that should be ticked and detected. Did you try to install older version of nvidia driver? Sometime latest drivers can cause new problems.
  10. PC all the way, much faster/better performance with much lower price, plus you can upgrade what ever you want.

    Can you post GPU-Z screenshots here?

    Cinebench Single CPU Scores

    Running cards in x8 instead x16 gives almost same performance overall, very small difference, around few %, probably depends of how "heavy" scene is for rendering. For full potential x16 is desirable.

    Cinebench Single CPU Scores

    If you plan to use 2 GPUs, go to 7820X, 8 core / 16 threads, 4.5 GHz boost, or 7900X if you plan to use 3 or more GPUs. Threadripper is good also, but has lower IPC, and 16 cores / 32 threads are not needed if rendering is done with GPU(s). 8700(K) and 8086(K) has highest IPC speed, but limited to just 16 pci-e lanes which is not good if you want to use more then 1 GPU for rendering.

    GPU with c4d

    OpenGL GPU score is heavily dependant of single core cpu speed, and your Xeon 3GHz speed is cause of low OpenGL score. For comparison, my GA GTX 1080 G1 8Gb has OpenGL score of 160+, with CPU single core score of 190+ (multi 1900+).
  15. You can buy Gigabyte GTX 1080 Gaming G1 8gb, it uses single 8-pin power connector, which will fit good with your 500w psu, and it has WindForce cooling solution, quiet and effective, I'm using personally two of them for Redshift. Price is < $500 atm. About GTX 2080 Ti, recommended psu is 650w+, price will be $1000-$1200, and real time raytracing/rendering is pretty cool, but software needs to support that fully and in proper way. It's first generation of real time raytracing gpu, think you will see real benefits from second generation when it comes up.
