The Candlestick Point State Recreation Area (SRA) Community Theater was designed by Mark Mack Architects, and modelled by Charles Ehrlich and Greg Ward (see README file in the repository).
After importing the scene into Blender and exporting it in Arnold’s scene description file format I hand edited the resulting .ass file, turning lights on and off, to render a set of lights (often called light groups in other renderers).
Direct lighting using only step and wall lights (approx. 16 minutes render time):
Direct lighting using only entryway lights (approx. 2 minutes render time):
Direct lighting using only main lights (approx. 4 1/2 minutes render time):
Direct lighting using all lights (approx. 23 1/2 minutes render time):
Global illumination using all lights (approx. 2 hours 30 minutes render time):
