Restaurant ICE Q - Archviz project

Hey guys,

I have been working on this project to practice exterior+interior inside UE4.
I was very inspired by this restaurant situated in high altitude, with a unique architecture design. Some of you may have seen it in the latest James Bond “SPECTRE”.
It was quite challenging since I needed a snowy environment and i’m not that good at it, but I managed to build a decent heightmap using World Machine and a splatmap technique following some tutorials.
I focused on the interior since I know more about the techniques, and managed to get some decent lightmaps and performance in-game. 1440p running at 30fps (frame capped) on a GTX 780.
Lightmaps settings (Medium Preset)
World Settings:

static lighting: 0.1
indirect bounces: 50
lighting quality: 5
lighting smoothness : 1.2

Hope you like it !

I liked it. Is it only for animation?
Is world setting you recommended will give me same result?

Thank you.

For the settings, it all depends on your scene. For me this, these settings were good without having to trade off to much quality and keeping reasonable render times.
If your scene isn’t too big, you could probably test the “Production preset”, and possibly tweak the .ini files but that really kills the render times :smiley:

This is a shot from the project using my settings:
