Damn guys, soft edges doesn't counts in renders. We need sharp edges. Softening edges is like you are not getting the results and you are trying to hide the damages. It's a rule for rendering, so Mave, try to keep them as sharp as possible and don't alter the object :< You used diffusion glow.

No, he is not. He is still in the competition as I don't see any visible damages to the edges.

It's foolish to say that, Rafay, SOFTENING EDGES is made for MAKING RENDERS.

No shit. I've never ever seen a render with softened edges unless the render is very distorted, hairs all round and stuff like that.
Otherwise, softening the edges is so simple and easy and saves alot of hard work but we don't want them in real renders.

You don't know what you're saying...

This is the way I was thought it by a professional photoshop skilled teacher...
Photoshop is a course I have you know, 10 hours a week...

The point is to make the final product look the best

Seems like Softened edges look the best to me.

Although, everyone else disagrees, I'll have to agree with Rafay.

Softening edges is for people who can't cut right or the photo isn't high-res or good quality.

In a contest, such as this one.. It shouldn't be used.

For personal use, e.g a signature. Then by all means.

But you guys are competing to test the best 'Renderer' not the best at rendering PLUS adjustments.

They might be, but we're testing rendering skills not hiding up split edges.

I didn't hide up anything...

I was taught to make a 1px soft edge for making renders, so that's how I do it.

If it isn't allowed, how about telling it BEFORE everybody makes their render...
