Stumbling in low light

Tonight’s experiment didn’t go to plan. Not happy with the result after an hour of rendering in Octane.

Lights in a Box

In the process I learned that Octane does not support native lights. You have to add light-emitting textures to objects.

Also failed categorically to recreate this scene in Modo or do any better with 3DS Max with Mental Ray. Less than a week and I’ve already reached my current skill limit.
