Hi, first ignore the advise not to use Cinerender.
Many People have the wrong conception out there that this render is way too slow, where it actually is the settings they use that makes it so slow. Yes of course it's not as fast as vray or Corona but there are dedicated renders only. They can't draw an Elevation, add dimensions or draw a detail. So they are programmed for speed and quality.
Twinmotion is good but no where near vray or Corona. There are so many options out there now but if you like to stay inside ARCHICAD then Cinerender can produce decent renders too.
Don't use the Cinerender high quality presets, they are too slow, choose medium for final rendering but you need to adjust some of the settings, to get the right balance between speed and quality.
All render engine have a lot of settings and need to be fine tuned. Twinmotion is a bit of an exception and good enough for most CGI's, so it's something you should look into in the future.
Cinerender a couple of tips:
- use color mapping for better results
Under Global Illumination
- primary method use irradiance cache default settings
- secondary method use irradiance cache, intensity 150
- Stochastic Samples - Method medium
- record density - medium
- cache refinement - medium
- Antialiasing - minimum and max level 4x4
Don't use 3D grass unless you do a close up where you only see a small part of grass that works fine. One last thing , think about where you like to show of your image, do yo need to print, if so which size etc. No point rendering an image at 4K if you only show it of on a normal HD screen resolution 1920 x 1080.
Hope this helps
