My first Firefly render - just a Firefly Poser 12 render test, using 1 IBL light.😊💖🥰 I was just curious, I'm not a big fan of biased rendering engines. I've just loaded the default LF beauty (the default preloaded scene) I deleted all the lights and then I added 1 IBL light. That's all I did. And the render settings. No postwork, never ever.

It fried my CPU while rendering, it went up to 32C-35C on different cores. Otherwise it stays cool on 25C.
My CPU uses ordinary air cooling, no fancy water cooling because they are more expensive and I can manage to keep my CPU cool enough under full load. Of course I can prove it with real-time streaming but who cares. Many still believe a new CPU is OK to run 89C-93C under heavy load. I do not and I never did believe it. That's why it runs as good as new for a decade.

Very nice :) With my old puter firefly is about my only option. LOL

I love you too, hon. My CPU is 10 years old, I assume it's old enough. However, I have also 2 graphic cards, an RTX 2060 working together with an RTX 3070 in Superfly. Those were roughly 1100 bucks both. I expected prices would go nuts and I bought the last RTX 3070 in store with a low price. I was right, they still both cost at the very least double now. Thank you very much for the wonderful words, my dear Kellie. If you can afford, I would recommend for Superfly an RTX 2060 or better. Please drop me a line if you will ever have in mind any upgrades. I can help you choose the best device for the buck. Hugs, Marius.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

Very subjective to the individual...depends what you want out of it..?..or what you expect to achieve and your views on what's correct...or your style of image...lots and lots of variables...

Cool image tho....will always go unbiased render.. that appears noiseless and smooth and probabilistically correct. A biased rendering method is not necessarily wrong, and can still produce images close to those given by the rendering equation if the estimator is consistent enough....

But like everything its individual preference....

I love you too, my dear Darkglass. I'm pretty much aware of what a biased render engine can do, that's why I use unbiased rendering engines. I've made that render for fun only. Even if I had access to a farm, I would still prefer parallel computing for obvious reasons. The only farm I can access is way smaller, a couple of hens and small gear.😊

Your always welcome my friend...!!...i'm sure a lot of people don't even think about biased or unbiased rendering nice to have the opportunity to talk on the subject briefly

I'm wi8th Darkglass - never thought much on biased or unbiased engines as I haven't had the need. Still chugging with a single 1080ti but I'll need to upgrade as soon as prices slip a bit more...

The 1080ti is still powerful and it can work together under win 10 next to an RTX flawlessly. Proper render settings might still dramatically improve your render times if you are using default render settings.

mifdesign Online Now! 7:22PM | Sat, 07 May 2022

The default render settings work fine for most scenes but sometimes it's better to use more efficient settings. Shaders, lights and render settings are one piece, they are not separate pieces and they all together drive a better and faster render. All three need to be adapted to properly work. With patience, you can squeeze more juice out of the 1080ti by optimizing those three factors. Never ever overclock the CPU ot the GPU/video card, never ever. A colder CPU and GPU will run 10% slower but it's life span will last 10 times longer. The hotter they work, the less efficient they become and for sure, they will die faster than they should.

👍😁, spot on well done dear Marius. I still myself render in firefly.

I do tweak settings but my tendency to load up scenes with all sorts of tidbits slows things down. A pinup in an HDRI can take as little as 25 seconds where a post apocalyptical scene in a room can take hours, with wild swings that aren't always predictable. It's like the proverbial box of chocolates...:)

I see.., chocolate has always been a huge problem, I know exactly what you mean.😊😊😊💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰

A very fine render! She looks fantastic!

Nicely done! I'm still using a geforce 960, boy am I behind....

mifdesign Online Now! 8:59PM | Sat, 07 May 2022

I love you too, my dear Gwen. I started with a GTX 750, later came the 960 and happily now I have the new architecture.
The RTX family sports tensor cores and other goodies. I strongly recommend the new RTX video cards, they work great with Iray and Cycles/Superfly. It also needs win 10 64 bit or better and obviously the latest drivers offers the very best. I would not consider an upgrade the 1650 or 1660 for 3D, an RTX 2060 I consider the minimum required for a true upgrade.

mifdesign Online Now! 9:03PM | Sat, 07 May 2022

The RTX made the difference between a ten hour render versus a couple of minutes. Not to mention instant noise removal when rendering with Iray. The AI denoiser uses the tensor cores.

Stunning image, excellent rendering and superb lighting 👍🙋‍♂️

Looks good to me. I know the struggles of trying to render on PC that's not top tier. I got lucky that my better half spent some cash on a not too expensive gaming PC. It's not always about what you have but how you use it.

NVIDIA needs to hire you as a consultant Marius, you have all the knowledge one needs on these RTX video cards. Your renders are always looking awesome my friend, keep up the great work! :-)

I love you too, my dear Johnny. I think I could teach them how to paint their cards navy blue, I love blue.😂

The lil nice chinese guy is happy where he is and I shall keep sleeping with ease no AI can truly learn for real.
It's better it stays that way.

I used Firefly for years and you can achieve very good results as you have here. I have come to very much prefer Superfly but the artistic control you can achieve with a biased rendering engine is always tempting. =)


mifdesign Online Now! 6:54PM | Sun, 15 May 2022

I love you too, my dear Molly. Superfly is far more powerful and much more advanced but indeed, some functions work pretty good on biased rendering engines. Thank you very much for the wonderful words, my dear friend.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
