360 Rendering

I just couldn't resist telling the truth about something almost everyone

doesn't understand. 


The only reason 360 rendering is fast is because it does not do

precision illumination and soft shadows. Set those three sliders

all the way to the bottom and render in Revit and it will render

just as fast as 360. 


What you get like that is a flat graphic artistic look. Not a 

"photorealistic" look.


AccuRender used to do the artistic flat look, but 360

does it much better. 


I think the artistic look is best for presentation, while  

photo realistic MentalRay is best for construction design

and seeing how things actually go together.


The only problem with photorealistic is that it takes WAY

too long no matter what kind of processor you got.


So I'm very pleased with 360 rendering.
