This is amazing. I'm an architecture student making an effort to improve the quality of my visualizations, and this is by far the best tutorial I have seen so far.
Well done, sir! ;)

Hello again, i saw that if i change to physical units:(cd/m2) in the background material setings, we don't need to change it in the render proprieties... only put on the material, and if you change from 1500,0 to 2000,0 the background will become more lighter as the glow...

Nice tutorial but I have one serious problem with it. There is said what to do to achive something, but it is not explained how it works. "The settings you can see in Fig.62 - 63." - OK I can set it in the same way, but I still don't understand what they are for.

I think I figured out what was the problem with black background. You have to remove material override which you set in one of the first steps. This option gives all objects the same gray material. But you don't want that on your background. So you have to manually add gray material to all objects but background.
(ID: 86659, pid: 0) Marko on Tue, 14 February 2012 10:25pm
I'm getting the same black background instead of the background image. Can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?
(ID: 76371, pid: 0) Joan on Fri, 06 January 2012 10:17pm
Thanks for the tutorial. But I'm having similar problem like David Johnson and Jelena with the background image: it apears blur and black in the render but ok in the scene.
But thanks again!

Very detailed tutorial and thanks for sharing it, can you share this one in a pdf file? so that I can follow it step by step. I am a neophyte in rendering and I want to improve it and I find this tutorial will help me a lot. Thank you!
(ID: 47277, pid: 0) Jelena on Tue, 02 August 2011 12:33pm
Thank you Maxim for the great tutorial. It's very simple and useful in the same time. I especially like yellow light from a lamp. Very nice detail.
But I'm having similar problem like David Johnson in the previous comment. My background image on the plane is looking good in a scene but in rendering it's shows up totally blue and blur. I tried several things but the problems remains. If you know what could be solution please help.
(ID: 47077, pid: 0) David Johnson on Thu, 28 July 2011 9:02pm
I love the tutorial! I am having issues getting the background image on the plane to show up! It will only render black :(
Can someone please help me?

For the very first time online, i got a reliable, sweet rendering and its tutorial. God bless you Man. However, I've always had this grainy looking effect on my rendering that makes it look so noisy even after following the course of your tutorial, what can i do to correct that please? Kindly proffer an answer. I appreciate your anticipated and earnest reply......
Thanks for sharing.
