High quality photos in Planner 5D

2016-11-22 09:03:43 Leila
Creating photos in Planner 5D was always an optional feature. While Planner 5D itself mainly is an easy to use floor plan and interior design tool for DIY interior lovers, HD photos allow everyone to visualise a newly created interior design. Therefore, Planner 5D team was instantly working hard to actually improve this feature so as everyone could compose even more beautiful visualisation of the created interiors. As things went, today we have an improved quality of HD snapshots, Android users are able to create an unlimited number of images straight on their devices with only one payment and no registration required, Windows 10 users will soon as well enjoy this possibility.

So, since HD images has come to the new level, I've decided to put together all the important moments to draw on a comprehensive guide for you.

Part1 - will be focused on lighting on your image and I will review the whole catalog of chandeliers, in order to save your time and money for testing and experimenting on how each chandelier actually works in HD images.

To begin with, here you go with brief tips on how to make your picture clean and reduce noise in your photography. Remember: to fully avoid noise in the photo actually is impossible and we are still working on it as well!

1. Count how many lamps do you have in your project.
So, actually while the rendering process Planner 5D will count how many lamps you have in your projects, meaning even if you choose a big chandelier with lots of small lamps or candles in it, the program counts every single unit in it. As a result, the more lamps you have the more noise you'll have in the photo.

Hence, I would recommend to use the least of lamps in your project. In case you've created a big project with couple of rooms, including kitchen, bathroom and etc. designs, simply make several copies of the exact project in order to create separate photos for each room. The number of lamps in each project is less, your image looks better.

2. Prioritise the natural light from the windows.
Use windows. Natural light that comes from the windows is way better than the light that comes from the lamps. Try to use wide and high windows, so that the light which comes from the window would cover the whole room. Even if the window is behind the camera, you'll still have a better quality of your captured image.
Capturing the room without a roof on it as well will give a better result.

3. Consider the type of the lamp you choose.
You have a big variety of light sources in the catalog to choose. For instance, some chandeliers have lamp bulbs directed to the ceilings, in that case the light won't cover the whole room and you'll have more noise in the picture.
A tip: some lamps can change the colour, so if you set a darker colour to the light bulb, the whole lamp will give less light, just in case you don't want it to shine bright.
Keep in mind: adjusting the size of the lamp won't give impact on power of the light.

For your convenience I've made HD snapshots of each chandelier, so take a look before choosing the right chandelier for your design.

Note: you are able to view the best, the trending and the fresh HD images created by our interior designers in the Gallery, as well as post your own one and get some feedback from other DIY interior lovers!

This is such a big help, I find lighting is the biggest issue when rendering, may I suggest maybe adding stars or something to each light option to show how brightness would look? For example, 1 star means very dull and 3 stars mean very bright as there's also room sizes to take into consideration, I'm still unsure if increasing the size of a light will add more Light? Thanks.

Hello, where would you like to see those stars? On the app somehow? Increasing the size of the chandelier - will not change the power or amount of the light. The brightness may change if you change the colour of the light bulb, make it darker. Note: not all the lamps change their colours! Did I actually answer your question or meant something else?

Mikes 2016-11-25 18:17:49

Hi Leila, its only a suggestion, but you know best. You've been a big help with the knowledge of adding colours and showing what lights work best. My only concern is with the spotlight chandeliers, as before rendering to a HD image they always look in place but after rendering they are either 1 or 2 inches lower or higher than they are when placing which is time and money consuming. Many Thanks for sharing this topic as I'm better aware.

Which chandelier would be a good option for a hallway with no windows and a front door? It also has one floor lamp in one corner.

Martynas/Planner5D 2017-06-16 08:05:06

Liam, can not really tell It is all about experimenting

ddesign 2017-09-26 22:15:37

they all look good but I agree I can't tell

Guys, creating a quick snapshot "Draft" will give you a good idea of whether or not your lighting is as you expect. Also, think about what materials and colours you use for your reflective surfaces (ceilings), that can really help. Also, remember that the light source is not omni directional, so put your nice big windows in walls facing light sources to let in more of the good stuff. I'm happy to discuss, if you'd like. Just leave me a message on any of my snapshots. :º)
