First, thank you for your detailed information above!
I apologize that I am so bold (?) to imitate your great scene. But, as I have already noted, your lighting result is so good that I want to learn to improve my own lighting skills as well. And just to get a comparable scenario, I decided to use your scene, which I imitated with SU PhotoMatch, filled with some scenes components from the 3D Warehouse. So sorry once again!!
For my test, I used generally the settings, which you've described above.
Interesting is the difference between the scene which uses daylight only and the scene which uses an additional light-emitter, as you have recommended.
Overall, I reached a satisfactory result but it is still far behind your lighting quality - would you please do me the favor to describe your method a bit more precisely, maybe with a scene-screenshot, how you used the emitter planes? - Of course only if you want or can...
Thanks & Regards, Regi
PS: also I used Vray already (in addition to some other renderers) - with this tool, just like with some other tools - the effort to reach any good result in a reasonable time was too big for me. To use Render[IN] was the result of a long search and comparison. With Render[IN], particularly for interiors, the effort to get a good result is the smallest and the fastest for me so far...
