I can't find good interior tutorials

Hello.

I come from Corona renderer in 3DSMAX, a render engine which I'm in love. I love it!.

But for other reasons I have had to migrate to MAYA, and I was disappointed because of the lack of official support of Corona to MAYA.

The fact is that I've seen some tutorial for interior scenes in infoarchitecture which are not bad but, after some Photoshop manipulations. I don't need to use Photoshop for my renders with corona renderer and this is why I am wondering if I haven't found the definitive tutorial for interiors with Arnold or definitely arnold is not so good as Corona renderer.

Please, I love Arnold&MAYA and many aspects of Arnold but...Please, could you indicate me where can I found the best interior illuminating practises WITHOUT USING PHOTOSHOP?.

I think that Arnold is a good render engine but I think I could beat Corona render engine for interiors.

Thank you in advance.

The process is simple:

  1. Create a skydome light.
  2. Position light portals outside the windows.

For final rendering increase light samples to around 3 and increase Diffuse samples for any gi noise. No Photoshop required.
