Sample Renderings

Here you will find several sample renderings with various combinations of GI methods.

The following project is illuminated by a sky through two windows set up as GI portals and a Cinema 4D Spot light on the back wall.

Note that the render times are only indicators and can vary for other projects (the render time will also be reduced dramatically for IC+LM and QMC+LM if Build Radiosity Maps is enabled). 100% render time is the most precise method for QMC+QMC.

Compare the methods and note the following:
