IRAY / PHOTOREALISTIC HD

We just released the iray/photorealistic renderings to Roomstyler. If you have created a room you can upgrade it to a Photorealistic HD for 3 credits. FYI these renderings are quite heavy to render on our servers but we did not want the price for this to be too high therefore we settled for 3 credits. We understand that not every render will create optimal results in the first try so we added the option to re-render a room up to 3 times so you can play around with light settings without spending extra credits.

In the next weeks we will be fine-tuning this feature further so let us know if you run into problems or think of things to improve this.

For the users that do not have any credits at this moment and would like to test this feature, please leave a comment in this thread and we'll add a few test-credits to your account.

A last word regarding contests: Up until now it was not possible to enter photorealistic rooms (via DM lights) to our contests but as this is now a general feature we will lift this restriction soon. To compensate for the fact that in time you probably would need a Photorealistic render to compete, we will make that the top entries of a contest will "win" credits so they can light up more rooms without the direct need of spending money on credits. We will keep you up-to-date when this will be launched.

For now enjoy testing this new feature and we cannot wait to see the images you will creating with this.

I would also like to add something for those who have never used the new light settings (which were already available in DMLIGHTS tool).

When you select a lamp you will see new switch and intensity slider in the left hand panel. Those setting will be ignored for normal render, so if you are not planning to render in IRAY (PHOTOREALISTIC HD) do not waste time tweaking them.


Furthermore, you can now also change intensity of the sun (from day to night).

Regarding the sun direction instead (this will also affect usual render), the default now is 'Northeast/High", that is currently relative to the camera position and soon this will be changed to be relative to screen (top of screen = NORTH).

Thumbs Up to Roomstyler Team!!! thank you

Ania Daliva 1 year ago
TV Renders - 1 year ago

BTW, position of the sun is now relative to screen (no longer camera). That means that NORTH is the top of the screen. 

Stay tuned as changes seems to happen quite quickly :)

Have fun testing

Thank you Roomstyler!! As I never could get DMLights to work, this is unbelievably exciting! (And thanks for fixing that weird sun position thing- much more user friendly now) Three cheers for the Roomstyler team!

laughterlines 1 year ago

Laughterlinescs:  You`re right, this sun posistion was a very strange thing. Now saved rooms will look more realistic, It`s the best thing roomstyler team could give us, so thank you very much. I`ve just checked it out and I`m very satisfied with the result.

Awesomeness!  Haven't tried Iray yet, but having the sun position relative to the screen is so much more intuitive, and I'm busy playing with the day/night toggles!  We Love Roomstyler!!

Opps, does the day/night toggles only work in Iray?  I'm not seeing a change in my regular render.

Yes, that's what they said Starsector. I'm thinking it's really going to change the way I do things.

Also, it's exciting, but I'm really going to miss playing with the sun.

Actually, the mention of the day/night toggles is a little vague above.  It's after the discussion of the Iray but before the information on the Sun direction relativity change.
starsector 1 year ago
russ - 1 year ago

I'm in the process of trying it on an old design now. The sun position option is still in the controls, But they said above it would always be the default for even regular renders now. He also said the lights would not go on until we made an iray render. I just did and it looks very good, but I have a lot of work to do due to the new wall thicknesses and learning how to adjust the lights. It seems like a lot of work, but my design has a lot of lights. Next render I will try the night toggle.

russ 1 year ago
Theadora - 1 year ago

Did a test with one of my designs and find that set at 75% night it's the inside that gets dark/gritty looking and the outside is still too light.

Sun/moon set at W/high but it looks like the reflection of the tree on the tub is through the north window.

Also the light above the tub has a large reflection on the north window even though it is directed downwards.

The thumbnail does not show the design with the lights on, it only shows after enlarging it.

Will delete test in a few days.

russ - 1 year ago

Finally got it, I think. And you are right Theadora, neither the lights nor the render shows in the thumbnails of any size. In fact, they look worse than the regular render. I have 2 side-by-side. I don't think I will bother much with them until that is changed.

russ 1 year ago

Is there a possibility that Iray/photorealistic 3d would be free? For some reasons I can`t afford it. I wouldn`t be only one who would use it.

laughterlines - 1 year ago

I agree with DMLights user... I had not realized reading the original post that using lighting would be a paid feature. (Speed reading has its disadvantages :) ) But I get it that you have to make money to keep up the site somehow!

laughterlines 1 year ago
Ania Daliva - 1 year ago

for the "speed reading" i just copy paste for you

For the users that do not have any credits at this moment and would like to test this feature, please leave a comment in this thread and we'll add a few test-credits to your account.

you are welcome to comment here.. i know that not all users are able or willing to buy the credits.. any suggestions are welcome

Ania Daliva 1 year ago
JeroenBekkers - 1 year ago

Thanks for feedback. We'll fix thumbnails soon. 


About  offering this as a paid feature only for now: We are constantly looking to enhance the quality of the free renders.  We went from 640x480 to a 960x540 format and decreased delivery times from sometimes hours to on average under 1 minute. That is because we  love to see your designs in the best quality possible and even tough we do charge credits for higher quality renders , our businessmodel is not based on making money from you (the roomstyler community) or selling your data btw. We make our money by offering our tools (often whitelabelled) to retailers with their own collections and logo so they can use it for their designers and sales staff.

The reason why we need to charge somehow for higher quality renders is just the complexity and costs  involved in running the servers. On busy days you create close to 20.000 renders here on roomstyler. And the new photorealitic HD renders can take up to 1 hour to complete on a single server so we need to somehow limit the inflow of these renders or we would have a server meltdown.

In time we will surely explore more options to offer increased quality and photorealism to the free renders but for now it will be credit only.  

Many of you long time members already have a bunch of credits in their account that was unused in many cases.  I hope this new feature will give you a new reason to spend some credits on making re-renders of your all time favorites, for newer (active) users that do not have credits yet please drop us line at support@roomstyler.com and we'll provide you with some test credits or keep an eye on the contests as we'll soon provide more ways for you to earn/win credits through the contests without you spending money.

I want to thank all of you Jeroen for your hard work in improving even the regular renders that have so much to offer and allowing us all to use it so freely. This amazing creative outlet has become very important to me and many of us. These new renders are fabulous! I wanted to try lights, but see now this new render has much more to offer and will use it even for day scenes without lights. Bravo!

russ - 1 year ago

I did have one question, after using it last night (kept me up far too late :-), I saw that it did have the sun position option in the controls still. Is this just disabled for now?

russ 1 year ago
russ - 1 year ago

I just ran into a snag in the "learning process" with the iray lighting. I decided to try it with one of my recent projects, but in my experimenting and learning about different light intensities and placements of lights, I used up all the three render tries and didn't get it just right. I know from my first attempt, the only way around that was to "save as" to a new file. This one I don't want to do that, as it is new and has a lot of nice comments already. I don't mind using more credits and buying more to experiment further on it. Is there any way to allow someone to purchase  more photo realistic credits and apply them to the same design? I'm only interested in learning to use them as best I can.:-)

russ 1 year ago
russ - 1 year ago

Also, I would like to caution everyone about using the reset "back" button in your planner, it also resets all your light settings and that can be a lot of work to fix.:-)

I like the effect of the lights - thank you for revisiting i-ray.  One question - we raised it a good while ago ... Mirrors do not reflect the outside (they used to do so) which gives a very unnatural effect - is this something you are still considering a solution for please?

Hey guys! Thank you very much Roomstyler for this new feature and for making available on Roomstyler the lighting effects! Unfortunately I don't have credits to test :( can i have some, please? Thanks again

russ - 1 year ago

Theadora, I tried to re-render one of mine that got a photorealistic in a contest I didn't want (kind of brightened and washed out.) I found that just simply pushing re-render HD didn't work, it stayed photorealistic. Then I went into the planner and took another regular render from there. It helped a little and took away the photorealistic render, but this was an older design and I guess all renders have changed, I should have known better and will be more careful what I put in contests now.:-/

I noticed that too Janip, I called it dismal at first, but now think it might be an interesting effect when using RS exterior combined with a little lighting. Jeroen that lantern does look great, but I found in my experimenting that all the wall lamps I tried where not hooked up, maybe I just didn't try the right ones.

and if i do not like the render and i edited my design do i have to pay 3 credits again?

Ania Daliva 1 year ago
russ - 1 year ago

Hey Ania, you get 3 tries to re-render after making the first one, there are little countdown numbers after the re-render option to help you keep track, if you use up all the rerenders, right now the only way to do more is to "save as" to a new file and purchase the render again for another 4 render chances. And for the email, have you checked your "edit profile" page? There, you can turn on your email notifications and also change your email address, I believe. Hope this helps.:-)

russ 1 year ago
russ - 1 year ago

What I said above about the re-renders applies to the "photorealistic" render where you can turn the lights on, if that is what you mean. Not the regular HD render.

thank you russ.. the notification show up at my newsfeed, and i did check my profile .. i see the email, totally forgot about it because i don't use yahoo anymore haha but here it is...

Ania Daliva 1 year ago
russ - 1 year ago

Ania,I know what you mean. I have done many renders experimenting and trying to learn. That general light slider in the controls has big effect on the overall render and it's hard to find the right balance. As for some of the lights, well I have just wound up turning some off, especially when they completely destroy detail in the shades you want to show.

@Jeroen

I just realized that the designs that failed where entered in contests, when I made re-mixes of them they turned out fine.

Jeroen, I noticed that the sunlight in your White and Green room seemed to stretch far into the room and found that the position of the sun was set to east and low. Does this mean that the  notifications that the sun position would stay fixed relative to the planner (top of planner is north and sun is from the northeast?) Will we still be able to work with different positions and altitudes?

@ Russ, the position of the sun is not fixed.  It's relative to the screen, now, instead of the camera.  It's default is Northeast/High.  But you can change it however you want.  (North is the top of the screen, South is the Bottom, East is the Right side, West is the Left side).

Hi Jeroen , first of all thank you all very much for this wonderful feature; I was wondering if you tried to re-render my room  because I received some e-mails about the photorealistic render (some successful, some failed) and I didn't really try it at the beginning; I clicked on the re-render at a point but it didn't change because my room is a render of a picture created on DMLights, therefore the camera is still oriented out of the room.

Thank you very much anyway and hats off for these big changes!

Ah, that explains a lot.

Lackew 1 year ago
JeroenBekkers - 1 year ago

@lackew this render engine uses a technique called  "raytracing" this means it produces an image with realistic lighting and if an image comes out to dark then not enough light sources are added to the drawing (or the light sources are obstructed or too low)   With our normal Roomstyler renders we compensate this  by giving all rooms an ambient light making it much harder to produce a dark image but this also means it lack a certain kind of realism. These new renders may take a bit more effort to get the lights right but once a scene is lighted correctly the results can be quite convincing I think.

So what's up with the designs you put in this new photorealistic tab!? 2 of mine represented there were experimental renders I would never have made public and I see that all are separate from the ones on the main pages, not representing the likes or comments or any of the info attached to the design. I'm not liking this at all. It's like you came into someone's personal work space and picked up private discarded attempts and published them.:-/

Russ, Jeroen never said the designs in the photorealistic tab would be based on popularity.   However, he did say only public designs would be featured.  So I can see you may have a "beef" if some of your private ones were shown.  Your comments read like you having a bad day.  You're usually pretty calm.   I'm sure the team will fix any problem you're experiencing.  They said several times that they're tweaking the new feature.

I now see that Roomstyler is saying the photorealistic designs are popular.  That's not what Jeoren said,   "btw we just added a page to the discover section where you can see the latest photorealistic renders of public rooms :  https://roomstyler.com/ideas/photorealistic." Latest doesn't = popular - looks like more tweaking  is required.

I'm sorry I came off like that. Yes, my real-life work has been insanely stressful and I probably should take a break from here. But, even though the designs I made there are public, the renders representing 3 of my designs (and I suspect of others) were not the final renders that I made pubic, so therefore not the latest. They are these 3 designs:

I see by the order of numbers for each of the above, this does not make much sense. But, the second ones in each set are definitely the final ones I made public. Please let me know if you would prefer the image links, I appreciate your help and responding to this. Also, the popularity part of my comment was not really about "popularity." I was just trying to point out that these seem to be separate files than the others we have posted. They do carry the ability to give hearts and comments, but how would we know about them since they are not on our profile page and would not be represented in the designs we have made public? Again, thanks for your help.:-)

JeroenBekkers - 1 year ago

@Russ we are not using your designs in any way without permission. They are shown in the list because they are set to public by you , not because we chose them. FYI The roompage will always show the highest quality design so if there is an iray render for that room it will first show the iray even tough a lower quality render has been created afterwards. We might need to tweak that a bit.

Sorry, one more thing I thought of, if it would be easier for you to make a remix of the above designs (or any of mine) to post on that page in place of the above wrong renders, I definitely would not mind that!

Today, i try to render my design "City View" in to realistic photo. First, i want to make in to automatic night scenery, but it didn't work :( So, i used some wallpaper with an image of city view at night. It came okay in regular rendering. But, then when i tried to render it in to realistic photo, it came very very dark! the scenery of city view outside are gone(?) Now, i am trying to fix it, with 3 attempts in re-rendering in to photo realistic. I shall wait what will gonna happen in next attempt :)

I had some time to look into the issue I had with the photorealistic tab page renderings. Of the four I have represented there, only one is the actual image I made public, and that is the only one I did not use the "photorealistic re-render" option. The other three I used the "photorealistic re-render" tool before making public and it seems the images there represent my first attempts I kept private.

Interiors by Laura - 1 year ago

Not sure I really understand this entire feature. The lights in my latest design don't all seem to be showing the same. If you look @ the middle chandelier against the far wall it is casting a bright light on the ceiling.  But the same light used 6 other times in the room are not casting any sort of light on the ceiling.  I also tried the night feature, but it still looks bright in the room.  Not sure what I am doing wrong.  https://roomstyler.com/rooms/17538074/cozy-restaurant

JeroenBekkers - 1 year ago

There are 2 new features added around lights in the past weeks. the first one is that we added lights to the majority of our lamps in Roomstyler. There is a new tab that allows you to control lights individually and also provide you some more options in the general light settings. However our current render engine uses some “tricks” to make all scenes to be lighted enough and even when especially when you turn the lights real low you will see that with the current rendering a scene is still not really dark. These “tricks” allows us to produce results fast and also make it easier for beginners to make well-lit rooms but lack a sense of realism in certain scenes.

Therefor we also introduced our Photorealistic renders. This uses a different render engine. this engine creates more realistic results but easily take 10x, sometimes even 50x he time of our normal renders . Besides that it is also more difficult to make the lighting of a scene look really good. However, when used well, the results can be stunning. 


For now this new render engine will be a paid feature only (3 credits for a HD renders with up to 3 re-tries) but we love to provide active users of the Roomstyler community with test credits (I already added some to your account a few days ago) and will also provide more ways for community members to earn credits through the contests.

Anyway, made this club design, so surprise with the difference in painted wall. In regular HD rendered design, we can see the wall as a common painted wall. But, after it got rendered in photorealistic, the wall seems like have a velvet effect? Its quite nice. I was so surprised.


Okay, here the regular HD rendered design

The team may want to look into the  Latest Photorealistic Renders tab.  Looks like it may  present the 1st or 2nd render, but not the last of the 3 tries we get.  Example, I just made a photorealistic render, and after adjusting the settings, made the 3rd one public.  However, the 2nd render is being shown in the latest render section.  It's not very good since the wine glasses look black without any reflections.

Thank you Valentina, exactly the point I was trying to make many times before. The last design I made, after using some of the re-render options up, I used three more credits in a new file before making it public to make sure the render I wanted was posted. I also think there are other problems there I won't go into.

And since I had free credits provided by the wonderful Roomstyler team, I decided to do another round of test renders with lots more overhead lights because....fun!!.

But then I discover that the 'Render' Options still say Retries (0) with no option to buy another 3-credit round. Normally, I would have just did a "Save As" and create a new file to get the Photorealistic option. But this design was already public and entered into the Restaurant contest....so that's a problem.

So 1) how do we get an option to use 3 more credits on the same design?

or else 2) can we get an option to restore to a previous version? (that would be a helpful option in any case)

And 3) may I recommend that the Retry popup give a helpful hint:

Remember to Resave before Retry! lol!


(PS Sorry about the duplicate posts in the Fix Furniture thread....brain fog!

Thanks Jeroen!  Since I had resaved my design before realizing I couldn't buy another round of renders, it was just a regular render, so I restored it to the 4k version.


And I finally realized what Russ and Valentina were saying about the "versions" being displayed thru the Discover tab.


Go to the "Discover" page, then click the "Photorealistic" tab.  Find my 'blossom design' there and click on that.  The version you get is the first original photorealistic render (not even the 1-3 Retries):  


But if I click on the name link (blossom) it takes me to my actual current image on my profile with hearts/comments.

I have found another glitch that may be related to the displaying of photorealistic renders. I just tried to hightlight on my profile page two of my recent rooms, neither one represented the final render I made public. One did not have the lights on (louis paulsen billiard lights) and the other (and possibly the first as well) did not represent the overall light level I chose for the final design.

As a few people reported above, and in this thread:  https://roomstyler.com/forum/discussions/10005


We no longer have the ability to re-try a photorealistic render.  I purchased one which was initially too dark.  The popup from the 3 dots said I had 3 Retries.  But then I made changes and resaved it, I refreshed my room page (which now had a regular render).  Then the little popup no longer said Retries and only gave me the option to purchase another photorealistic with 3 credits.

Like Ania above, I'm struggling with lights.  I'm trying to use between 5-7 of the "Emily 5 light Chandelier".  No matter what I do, I can't get their brightness to be equal.  Some are dim, others are extraordinarily bright.  I've tried dimming the bright ones and raising the dim ones.  I've tried deleting them all, and bringing in 7 new ones (and also just using 'duplicates').  


I wanted to get these right so I could do an Iray/Photorealistic.  Otherwise, I would just shut them off and do a regular render.  Any help or tips would be appreciated. ;)

starsector 1 year ago
starsector - 1 year ago

It seems that the lights work more consistently in the Iray/photorealistic, then in the regular render.  I was able to have the chandeliers show up evenly bright in Iray, even if they were erratic in the regular.  I'm pleased with the results :)



starsector 1 year ago
starsector - 1 year ago

I'm sure others have reported this, but when I selected the above room to 'highlight' on my profile, the large thumbnail(?) that displays is not the photorealistic version, only the regular render version.  That matters particularly because of the previously mentioned problem getting the chandeliers to display at equal wattage (my son said I needed to call in a contractor to fix the wiring in my 'old warehouse', lol).

starsector 1 year ago

Yes, I posted about the highlights somewhere a awhile back Star. With my experimenting with them, I found many different variations in what was displayed. Some of them were versions I had never seen before and none were what I actually made public.

I believe it has been reported before, but most glass objects turn out black in the photorealistic render (like the fireplace below). Will this be fixed?





MandyB84 1 year ago
starsector - 1 year ago

A couple of suggestions/issues:

1)  When I'm using the lightbulb icon to adjust lights, etc., every time I click an adjustment, I'm automatically bumped out of that tab into item description or something else.  I have to keep clicking back into the lightbulb tab for more adjustments.


2)  When using PhotoRealistic, I've noticed that I tend to go a 'bridge too far' by the time I've used my 4th and last Re-try.  Often, I was more pleased with the one before that.  I think it would be really helpful if there was an option to Select between the 4 Renders to display on the profile, rather than just deleting the IRay and restoring it to the original, regular render.  I think people would feel they're getting maximum use of their 3 credits.

Just found this discussion, didn't realized it is such a new thing. I have noticed that duplicated lights are not as bright as the 1st one I place on some of the lights; after rendering lights are much brighter; background, glass and water become black. There is a 15 lights limit. Some lights don't seem to be on after you have more then 15 but would be on after iray.

I am sharing this project which was used to experiment with both HD and IRay render. The lighting in HD render is closer to the original lighting set up while IRay has extreme contrast of light and dark. Each time you click on "create X render" credits would be taken even if it is in process. Until this issues is fixed, keep in mind credits would be taken each time even if it is for the same image request. Hopefully this technical issue would be fixed or RS is going to have lots of unhappy customers. Hopefully the hard working programming staff would take a look at my history for Blue 15 and Jaya warehouse kitchen to learn the differences. I have also designed these rooms for Panoramic view for lighting experimentation. Good lucky RS~ keep up the great work!

Why don't IRAY rooms appear in IRAY when they're shown as the winner on any contest background (Copper and Pink + Different Tables are examples) or when I highlight a room? Just curious....

Is it possible to have  the IRay version show on our Profile page when highlighted also? Or do we have to create an HD version before the IRay prior to Highlighting????

Hello. Last month was the first time that I had ever bought credits and apparently I wasn't as clear as I needed to be, on the correct process of how to re-render 4k projects, which has cost me 8 credits out of the 20 that I purchased.  I had been inactive on the site when the 4k feature was first introduced and missed the chance to receive trial credits.  Am I able to get credited back for them?


Also, the 4k renders are taking a whole longer to generate than they did for me last month. Hours instead of minutes.

Hello. This IRAY/Photorealistic room is appearing very grainy. Is there any solution to such a problem?

@ Lifeandus : The solution is more light. Dark rooms ( Night Modus ) in IRAY/Photorealistic pictures are  another story . I use wall art as a solution. I tried it with your room.

Hi all! I know it's been a while! Hope everyone is doing well. I was going to enter the Pub competition but got caught up in playing with the lighting features RS now offers. So fun! However This was my final design after three renders. It is very grainy lookin and not very clear in places. wondering if anyone has any suggestion as to whether I did not light well enough or if this is a rendering issue? I can def see the diff in depth in the 3d vs. the HD render, however the clarity (in this case) is not so great.

Hi Crosette, welcome back! :)


If you move the daylight slider more to the right (just after the y of day) you get a much better result. Just experiment with the settings. :)

Naavarin, i tried it, and even for me, it was difficult  to find the right light. 

- i reduced the hight of the room and closed the room on the left and behind the camera so the light can reflect.

-i changed the sun position to give the light a way in the room.

-i increased the daylight, but dimed the brightness and the lamps down to normal. 

-i put another glazed-door in the right wall.

Thank Hauser! I tried also to put in in daylight but I don't know why it came so dark.. Everything I did it came so dark.. But U made it great! Is it possible that in IRAY you have to have the right lightning that it become so (you have to put light inside) or it become so dark?

Naavarin 1 month ago
hauser - 1 month ago

Yes, that is the point. Your position of the sun is southwest and medium . This is the mainreason i think for the semi-shade and the darkness you see. Also the lampmodel seems to work not very well. In IRAY the software tries to work like a modern camera - noise, hot pixels etc. can be the results everytime a camera works at its physically borders, esspecially in lowlight areas.  To avoid this, you have to think and work like a photographer. Light "wants" and needs to be reflected. If the room is build the right way with the right light settings, even the normal rendering can look very real. I make it public, so you can see my settings.
