[Old software maxim: hardware is cheap, software is expensive]
2 hours to render @ 1,500 samples, GPU [Used to be 16 hours, CPU]
Interiors have extreme lighting so this seemed a good test for Filmic Blender.
You can get Troy Sobotka's Filmic Blender here:
I was quite pleased how much of the exterior detail was made available.
I adjusted the colour grade, no other changes. Trying for a wintry feel.
Impressively, Filmic Blender allows for a lot of post-processing.
The highlights can be pushed quite far without blowing-out.
[Check the shadow border, side face of the sofa which used to look a little nasty.]
I am sure the same is true for the shadows. A big thumbs-up from me.
