Making of living room with open kitchen space filled with a lot of high quality props and lit by many light sources.

This modern interior scene is a part of our popular Archinteriors vol. 27 collection (for C4D version go here: Archinteriors vol. 27 for Cinema 4D).  This scene was modeled and set with 3DS Max and rendered with V-Ray (check V-Ray price in our shop!). It comes with 3 cameras.

In the scene with so many elements, it is a must to distribute them on separate layers.

We use metric units system.

Hi! You have a screen with Vray settings. isn't it self-explanatory? You can see all Image sampler settings, filter, all elements that were used, etc. Full resolution here: http://www.evermotion.org/files/tutorials_content/uploads/34_render_settings_nr_1964.jpg
