Re: Using a lot of light power

One more question please. What settings should I use to make the glass better? Select the material for your glass and convert it to "Glass (solid)", providing all the faces have the same material, from and back, inside and out. It's easy to get fooled when the front face is transparent bu...

Re: Using a lot of light power

Hi, you are not doing anything wrong, the power isn't in watts or lux or candle power etc, let me explain how it works... In v3 and earlier versions, the power was set to 35 and that's all that was used to calculate the intensity on surfaces. That worked fine for real life size models but if you sca...

Re: Loading settings deletes all the sceens

No, that part didn't change! I just tried it and it worked for me. Does it do it for all models including an empty model with just the Sketchup default with the person?

Re: light immitters what is "area ajustment"

Hello, The light intensity is multiplied by its area and the area adjustment add/sub from the original surface area of the emitter. If you have a small light and set the area adjustment to 0, it may illuminate similar to a flashlight, but if you make its area much larger, it will illuminate more lik...

Re: Which version

Hi, I suggest you download the one with the CPU logo, it has both, CPU and GPU. For interior renderings, I suggest to use the CPU because it is grain free, unlike the GPU, and, the more lights you have, the slower the GPU will be compared to the CPU. In aby case, when you install it, you will have b...

Re: v5 interior test

ah, but if you use Portals, it would look even better. No need to replace your windows/doors or anything that's transparent, you simply cover the outside opening with a rectangle, front face facing towards the inside, group it and paint it with any material named Portal.

Re: HDR environment maps

What are the actual dimensions of your HDR image? Usually, this look you get is because the hdr is very low quality, you need something like 4000 pixel wide to get a nice output.
