Re: Raylectron 4 extension not starting anymore

Great, but we just updated the download because we fixed a few reported bugs so you may want to re-download it again, make sure you don't download the version in your browser's cache.

Re: Raylectron 4 extension not starting anymore

We finally got it working. You can download (attached below) and try it out. One major change beside compatibility with skp2019.2 is the artificial lights are now using the light surface area, so the smaller the light the more power you have to give it. You can also offset the light surface area so ...

Re: Raylectron 4 extension not starting anymore

This new version of Sketchup 2019.2 removed something that makes our render no longer work. We are working of fixing it. In the mean time, you need to go back to the last version of Sketchup so you can keep on working. If you like, you can download the Sketchup 2019 folder that works, go to your c:\...

Re: How to show light through an object

it's a cube but I could have made it a sphere as well. The beam kind set to none, important in this case because it's not a directional light.

Re: How to show light through an object

Hi, First, make sure the material is the same for the front and back faces of the shade fabric, set the transparency to 30-60 and diffuse to 100. Here is a render of a shade I did, is this about what you're looking for? Mine maybe too transparent (I used 80) but you can play with the number, say, 30...

Re: Render problem Light emitters

you need to set the Beam Kind to None and to unchek the Low Power checkbox. if your emitter is long and not symmetrical as in a 4x4 area light for example, subdivide it into smaller light segment as each will be able to illuminate the proximity objects much brighter as the long single lamp will not ...
