Here's some renderings made over the last couple of years or so for different companies. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks for looking and the comment, Hossein!

Thank you, Don! I sure can; I didn't use glass on that particular render, it is made up of multiple renderings. In the main rendering, I hid the glass panels and rendered. Then created a new scene set and new environment to create a specular pass (everything is a flat black material except the glass panels which uses a shiny black plastic) with the glass panels in place and combined them in PhotoShop. This way I can easily modify the glare and such without re-rendering the main scene again. Below is a quick sample you can try out. Just save the first two to your desktop, bring both layers in PhotoShop. With the specular layer (sample.99.jpg) on top, change the layer to "Screen" and adjust the opacity. You should end up with something like "result.png" shown below. Hope this makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.

Looking good Chad. May i ask how the fridge and ice maker images are lit ? Steel is pretty hard to show in big machines.

You're welcome, Don. It's fun to experiment! Thanks for the compliments.

Thanks, Nicolas! Both shots just use a custom environment, nothing too crazy. I did use a couple of AO passes with the fridge scene (one for internal and one for external) to make it pop a little more.

Thanks for the info. Just play with light pins ?

You're welcome, Nicolas. Yes, it was just a custom environment with light pins, no IES lights on that one. The ice machine did use an IES light for the ice dispenser spout but not for environment lighting.

Excellent work, your stainless steel looks spot on. Funny how the freezer also instantly caught my attention, knowing how tough it is to render such machine interiors in one pass :)

Gotta echo those lighting comments; big, flat, steel things are a real pain to render nicely and you've executed perfectly. Great stuff!
