I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum or not, but here goes. I have been running Revit Architecture for several years now. I have a residential design/BIM drafting business and do alot of renderings. I am curious what everyone else is using software wise on producing photo realistic renderings. I started out using Revit exclusively on modeling and the rendering. Now I build the model out of Revit and export it out as a FBX file and link it to 3DSMax and do the renderings there. #DSMax seems to do quite well and seems faster. Was curious if there is a better way or better software to export to for rendering. The program Chief Architect appears to pretty good on renderings, but it seems a bit cheesy...not sure. Any thoughts on this?

Hi. My name is Mike Norby and I have been a cabinet maker and designer for the past thirtyfive years. I am currently getting an architectural drafting degree and as an independant project have designed a highly parametric kitchen cabinet family. Revit will do an outstanding and possibly unmatchable job of rendering those cabinets, with a few stipulations. Revit employs ray tracing, which means that light bouncing of of shiny objects is tracked and included in the rendering. That takers time. Revit is reasonably fast in medium or lower settings and does a decent job. I let the computer generate high quality renderings when I'm not going to use it for a while. The wood texture patterns that come shipped with Revit are stupidly bad. There are lots of textures available on interfnet, but I have had better results working with wood images in photoshop and generating my own.
