Theater: Cycles

28 Oct 2016

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). It was originally designed to be rendered with Radiance. After importing the scene into Blender some patterns used in the original scene are gone and I replaced them by materials with a single color.

Cycles

Here are the results for Cycles, Blender's internal global illumination renderer:

Cycles rendering of
one of the corner seat perspectives.

Cycles rendering from
the perspective of a third row seat.

Cycles rendering from
the perspective of someone on stage.

Other Renderers

The scene can be found in the download section of my web site. Images rendered by other software can be found in a repository on GitHub.
