Sweet Home 3D - 40ft HICUBE Container Concept House No 1

1,940 views 1 year ago
A concept design for a 40 foot HiCube Shipping Container House, designed and rendered in Sweet Home 3D 4.0. This is an awesome program for playing around with rearranging the furniture of your home, or for pro and wanna-be architects (like myself) who need an outlet for those house designs bouncing around in their head. This is like advanced Sims 3D house design, without needing to use cheats to avoid the crappy game play. lol.

**Render Discussion**
Video Format: 1920x1080 @ Quality 2. I'm not having terribly satisfying results using the two best settings (Q3 & Q4), especially for the time spent rendering. Blending of lights at 2nd best (Q3) is dotty, while best (Q4) leaves little black and white artifacts randomly thru the images and video (see Q4 still images below). This is due to some bug in rendering reflective glints on shiny surfaces, and can also be influenced by lighting strength and/or position, and time of day. Anyway, I decided Q2 is nice enough to show off the house design in the virtual tour, however you can compare it with the Q3 render here: http://youtu.be/-WHjZyTvuTA (Video Format: 720x480)

I originally tried rendering with the 32bit version of SH3D, but it was very slow, and video creation would hang. After getting advice from the website, I upgraded to the 64 bit java version of Sweet Home 3D & used the memory command for 4GB. This definately reduced rendering time, and also stopped hangs on the higher settings, but it did not improve the dotty light blends of Q3, nor did it get rid of the black and white artifacts of Q4 - these results occur both when I render still images or video. From my understanding, the Sunflow rendering engine is used for the two top quality rendering settings, and this is out of the SH3D programmer's hands. I expect the Sunflow engine will also improve over time. Regardless of these niggly bugs of the final renders, the Sweet Home 3D experience is a lot of fun and well worth a try for all those budding architects and interior designers. :)
