A "just for fun" wip rendering of the chancel area of my church, modeled and rendered in ACA 2011.
ACA tools I found useful:
-The walls, window, and arched opening are all ACA parametric objects
-The pews are curtain wall objects with variable length
-The grilles on the organ chambers are door window assemblies
-The raised wood panelling is created with curtain wall objects with variable height, length, and number of panels. I particularly enjoyed the fact that these can have irregular floor and roof lines applied, visible to either side of the main steps and beyond at the choir screen walls.
-All running trim is done with profile sweeps of wall components
-The choir seating is done with curtain wall objects with variable seat spacing, radius, and length
-The cove lighting is done with the cove-distribution web light that ships with ACA
Wow nice rendering! In ACA2011?? You give me hope. Only issue is the segmentation on the arch.
Rest is excellant. How long did the render take? What are the machine spec's?
My trial with 11 was disastrous (but I am on 32bit with 4gb ram).
Oh and carpet on the floor would look good. Looks a bit sketchy unlike the rest of the image.

My machine specs are
Dual Xeon 3.20GHz
64-bit Windows 7
Render time was 5 hours.
We hit memory limits with 32bit-4GB in releases 2009 and later. Making the jump to 64-bit fixed those problems.
