I started using again an older version of Indigo Renderer. This version was released in 2008, a year before Indigo became commercial. The free version of the software which I have been using since last year can only render a maximum of 0.7 Megapixels. The final image I had to submit would be more that 9 MP. It's a good thing I maintained an old version.
At the beginning of the architectural challenge, I started saving some of my extra income so that by the middle of February I would be able to purchase a license for the software. I really needed this one so that all the restrictions on the free version will be taken out. I was ready to buy it last week but to my dismay, the price had already gone up by another 300 euros. With that price hike, I would not be able to get that license for another two months. The contest I joined would be finished in a month.
I did some practice renders and at the same time experimented on modifying the model. I also started playing around with materials for the floor.
The house being rendered here is called the GH house and is designed by Dunsky Kornhauser Architects Ltd.
