I always finished one shading group completely and then went over to the next part. Of course I didn't do the test renders in full render settings. All the time-consuming parameters like reflection subdivs, antialiasing, render size, irradiance map preset were turned down to get fast, almost interactive results.

Render (V-Ray) Settings

The render settings are very important parameters but I will only talk briefly about them. In V-Ray GI (Global Illumination), Reflection and Refractions maps were setup under Environment in the V-Ray tab. Here the HDR image which I had created from the 360° panorama was plugged in. It was also used for Reflection and Refraction maps to get accurate results.

When a V-Ray Sun is created the image is most of the time over-exposed. To compensate for this, under the Color Mapping tab in V-Ray I changed the type to "HSV exponential", which computes the light color differently. In the same tab, I changed the Gamma value to 2.2, which shows the actual light settings that are rendered on the monitor (Fig.05 - 06).

Thanks for the tutorial. I almost think your first render, the darker one, looks a little closer to reality on the whole. Anyway, good job!
