    Default another Photoshop comparison

    Yet, again. The photoshoped files seem to get the best response.
    Saved -the photoshop file is 160 megs. Working its 257 megs.
    resolution of the original image was 480 approximately 10"X 5"
    The layers and effects are listed in the stack image posted with this.

    The original image is all Revit - not bad. Only posted it here at 300 dpi.
    Any questions feel free to ask.

    The effect looks good, but neither the original nor the effected image express the volume of the building. Maybe it would help to save a hidden line view with shadows on from Revit and add it as a layer in Photoshop, that way you could manually adjust the light and dark faces of the building to add to the depth of the image. Compositionally some site elements might help as well to move the viewers eyes across the image and frame the building with foreground as well as background information.

    BTW the background and sky look great and are ideal for the building and pop the building right off the page, its the distinction within the building that is hard to read.

    Yeah, the lighting on the heavy fascia trim didn't really work with the orientation. Unfortunately, the client called and needed a rendering for their upcoming publication with a printing deadline - so you do what you can in the time constraints. I tried the hidden line effect with revit on an earlier rendition, but didn't redo it. Maybe now that the deadline has come and gone I'll revisit that. Thanks for the comments.

    Edit - Added the Revit hidden line overlay - Process - hidden line - export at 600 dpi image from revit. reduce to 80% (480 dpi) when inserted on Pshop layer. deleted white areas. Added filters find edge and reticulation to drawing layer. Added at 57% opacity and multiply. Darken shadows on watercolour layer. Reduced image size slightly to repost.

    It looks a bit darker now, but that really brought out the details a lot... I understand clients and deadlines, usually I don't have time to render anything at all and just go with the hidden line and shadows.

    I say go with hidden line and shadows first, so that next meeting when you throw the colour in they are even more impressed than last time!!

    That was done to get the board interested, - That was the problem, They were going to publish the STUDY and it was a REAL hack job.

    Looks great Ski! I like the one with the linework better, but you're still losing the columns...I know why, because they are too faceted in Revit right? Just an FYI, one way I extract the linework needed for a watercolor is to use Smart Blur in Photoshop. It saves you the trouble of exported out linework from Revit, and it will solve the faceted column linework.


    1. Duplicate the raw rendered image layer, call it "linework"
    2. Goto Filter | Blur | Smart Blur
    3. Set the quality to High and the mode to Edge only
    4. Play with the radius and threshold sliders until it contains just the amount linework you want.
    5. You should be left with white lines on a black image.
    6. Using the magic wand tool, select anywhere in the black, right click and choose similar, then hit delete.
    7. Hit Control + I to invert that layer.
    8. You should be left with black lines, adjust the opacity as needed.

    Here is an quick example that I did the other day (Revit+Viz/Vray)
