    Hello. Do you think that computed renderings could go in front of hand renderings? Can video renderings achieve the status of "high quality" when only the video card's technical specifications decide the quality of the rendering? Video renderings can reproduce realistic images, but the designers must prove that the concept was made by their own mind. The problem might become serious if designers will not no longer be able to support their ideas in front of an audience using the hand drawings. What do you think about this aspect? I think that computed renderings cannot return the emotion that hand drawings do :|. The feeling when you accomplish a hand drawing cannot be matched when creating a computer rendering, no matter how realistic it is.

    This blog has some classic hand renderings.

    Not true. The rendering quality is not limited to the video card. Let's say that I have an old card that was limited to a 800x600 resolution. Nothing prevents me from setting the rendering resolution to 4096x3072 or higher.


    Video renderings can reproduce realistic images, but the designers must prove that the concept was made by their own mind.
    The software I use to render has a text file in Scene Description Language, which is essentially a copy of the instructions you gave to render the image. If you can show the Scene Description Language File, that is proof that it was your own work.

    Easily handled by presenting copies of the renderings at various stages.

    Computer rendering is just a medium, like charcoal, pencil or brush. The emotional impact depends on the artist's ability to bring it forth, not the medium he used.

    The feeling when you accomplish a hand drawing cannot be matched when creating a computer rendering, no matter how realistic it is.
    I beg to differ, I have done both, and I can say that completing a computer rendering that you are pleased with can be just as satisfying. It comes from composing what you see in your mind's eye onto the screen, within the limitations of the software.
