Maximizing my rendering capabilities.

Recommended Posts

I have Home Designer Suite 2016. If I want to improve the quality of my renderings would you advise to upgrade to Chief Architect or Home Designer PRO. $100 vs $400 investment. Will it make enough of a difference in my interior renderings?

Chief Architect $2,500+, has Ray Trace and additional rendering techniques. I believe Pro has the same tools as Suite.

 

You could download the trials and test for yourself.

All Home Designer titles and versions have the exact same rendering ability. Like Eric said, you would have to upgrade to Chief Premier and then learn how to use its tools to get improved renderings.

I, too wish there was a better rendering for the Home Designer Suites. Chief Architect makes HD look like a toy! But,  there are a few things you can do to make it look a bit better. You can download Paint.net and work with it to get a better look. Look at my designs in the gallery, there were all completed working with Paint.Net. And furthermore, I personally find that the more I update the software the worse rendering I get. Now, that is my own personal opinion. And if I could afford Chief, I would get it, but for me this is just a hobby.

Nice designs. How much touch up work on them did you need to do in Paint.net? Seems that could be a real labor intensive process?

Was also thinking that producing high quality final renderings could be a good service for someone that owns CA to offer. They could offer to import designs made in HD and export renderings for clients for a small price.
