Hey Ryan, Than you! i left it just for 6 or 8 hours since i recall but that´s because of the deadline, i had 4 hours to set the scene mats and props and just the night to render :S.
Becuause of the messy geometry (imported from rhinoceros) i had to clean like 50,000 faces (i´m not kidding that´s what thomthoms cleanup script said) and also because there are two huge glass panes behind the letters so that scene needs much more time.
Sunlight is Thea´s physical sky with sun
i can share of course any other parameters if you wish, i will post camera settings in the afternoon (gotta go now!)
and i´d love to see that interior you are about to do
I leave the IBL version Kim requested, i would have left it a bit longer but a stupid windows restart (Antivirus related) didn´t let me so here it is!
