What creates apparent size in the final output?

Hi, there,

I realize this is probably not a MOI question, but I don't have any other software that I use, nor do I trust other forums to the extent that I do this one for non-biased advice. :)

What is it that makes the final model (render?) look big or small? For instance, I've seen whole buildings (modeled, of course) that seem as small as a foot or two high, and others that seem, well, like a real building "should".

So my question is, what do you have to do to get your final result to look the same relative size as what you're modeling? Is it a function of the model, one of the rendering, or is it post-processing like in Photoshop?

Thanks a lot, and sorry if this is obvious,

- Paul

Hi Paul - well when you create a rendering, there is a kind of "virtual camera" that you can position wherever you want and the image is generated as if it was looking through that camera.

To make something look like a familiar size it would mostly involve placing that virtual camera to a relative location to the object that human eyeballs would most usually see it.

So for example don't place the camera 100,000 meters above the building, stuff like that.

Thanks very much to both of you. This makes sense now.
