My 2nd Firefly render by mifdesign

It looks great mif - you wouldn't want much more light, even with figures. Maybe some sky drama - but that's it. Contrast is quite a wonderful thing :)

Always going to be harder to achieve a clean render with low lighting...in any application it's a challenge...but its really good for a 2nd render....!!
like everything in life...there is always a choice to make, path of least resistance or the harder route
biased: uses optimization algorithms to greatly speed up the render time. but because it is doing so, it is not strictly just modeling the physics of light, rather it is giving an approximation.
pro's: fast, can achieve/approach photorealism, allows great artistic flexibility to play with outcomes
con's: usually require more set up and tweaking; if you know what you are doing, you can get great results fast, if not, you can spend a lot of time learning to use the renderer and/or have difficulty getting good results with every render....
unbiased: models the physics of light without cutting corners, though this takes considerably longer.
pro's: more straight-forward ( possibly depending on skill set and understanding ) you can concentrate on the important things - lighting materials and composition , it is what it ( again depending on you understanding of the principles and knowledge of lighting textures and materials ) so you inherently spend less time fiddling around with materials and lights and settings, can more consistently produce photorealistic results if necessary or the complete opposite depending on your art style...its purely personal preferences
con's: render times are orders of magnitude greater....again this will depend on the system and what your running

About the render engines, I couldn't say it shorter. I also know only a handful of people on this planet are able to write from scratch the headers and properly implement the classes required by a render engine, I have no doubts about that. That's for sure a very narrow playground and it only goes one way, for sure isn't growing. Those old guys make things tick for real in 3D.
mifdesign 8:06PM | Sat, 07 May 2022
I'm old enough but I'm not one of those guys, I'm a mere mortal. I only know very simple things, like one, two, three, four..., many...😂
Darkglass 8:04PM | Sat, 07 May 2022
In a nutshell its finding that happy medium between speed and quality and pushing it one way or the other, that's shorter ..LOL.!!
mifdesign 8:16PM | Sat, 07 May 2022
I can't swear for you, I can only do it for myself. Those guys are modest and you never know who you are talking to. Only one of their kind can confirm but for sure, they will never do it in public and probably they will never let you know it, I realize that.
I'll now take my plastic shovel and go back to play in the sand.😊

Marius...you and Darkglass sound like two very knowledgeable technical Pro's talking about video card specifications and their use. I will make sure I consult you both when I decide to upgrade my friend! Your low light render looks awesome! :-)
mifdesign 6:45PM | Mon, 09 May 2022
I love you too, my dear Johnny. We shall happily let you know what's the best bang for the buck. Just make sure you spare some for a good PSU as well and - if you will get a top video card - a good UPS, it can be any UPS as long as it reads APC.
This will help it run smoother and keep your dreams nice. Please remember to drop me a line, whenever you may need to upgrade. Thank you very much for your wonderful words, my dear friend.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

The fire and candle throw a warm red light and generate a moody night atmosphere. Well done!

lighting a scene just with the candles and the fireplace is quite a challenge
mifdesign 6:50PM | Mon, 09 May 2022
It happily worked.😂 Thank you very much, my dear friend.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

Shows that Firefly is a fine rendering engine if you know what you're doing. XD
Thanks for sharing, Marius.

Very nice low light render; I especially like the fire in the fireplace!
mifdesign 7:33PM | Mon, 16 May 2022
I love you too, my dear Gwen. I needed a flame and I found a burner in the huge Poser content.., I said to myself, 'whoa, this is what I need..' so I only used the flames, moved them in the fireplace, set the shader for the flames and the candles and pressed the render button. It seems it worked quite nice.😊 Thank you very much for the wonderful words, my dear friend.😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

It's worth to give it a ride but remember, it will run on the CPU only.
mifdesign 5:04PM | Thu, 19 May 2022
One hour rendering time, it's quite a lot for a test. It worked nice but, a lil bit slow.😊😊😊
Thank you very much!😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

I like with such low lighting details of her face can still be seen. as soon as I get a chance, I will re-install Poser. I really miss using it
mifdesign 10:47PM | Wed, 25 May 2022
I love you too, my dear Richard. I can hardly wait that moment you will have your Poser back online. It's a lot of fun and very addictive but I assume you somehow knew it.😊😊😊😊😊😊😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

One more thing, if you have an SSD, it will run smoother if you will install Poser on it. Mine is very fast but I think it's too small.😂😂😂, otherwise it was pretty large in the beginning..😂😊💖💖💖💖💖💖💖🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
