How to Use Eevee to Render Large Scale Architectural Scenes

Chipp Walters shows how to render big architectural scenes with Eevee and get sharp shadows.

Blender Eevee is gaining an excellent reputation as an amazingly capable realtime viewport renderer in 2.8. Tons of tutorials show how to use Eevee from special effects to realistic scenes. One thing that could get a little tricky is rendering large scale architectural scenes while trying to keep the shadows sharp.

Blender artist Chipp Walters takes on the task of providing a solution. The tutorial is for artists who deal with large scale block models in other CAD-like applications and want to do something similar in Blender. Walters shows how to properly set up a scene and use a single sun and sharp shadows. Download the scene file for the tutorial here.
