Re: Raylectron acting strange

Yes. I did that and all back to normal again. I think I clicked the GPU button by mistake first and immediately clicked the cpu button and then it started acting crazy. Now all is ok.
Thanks.

Raylectron acting strange

Hello there, Still on latest 4.99 version. This just started happening today. After running Raylectron for a few seconds, I noticed I am still in Clay rendering mode. So I stopped the render, unchecked the clay rendering and continue the rendering, but the rendering doesn't change and stays in clay ...

Re: rendering

Ok. Understood. I just deleted all the other glass options and kept the strips version only and rendering is looking ok now. I didn't use the glass(solid)material for the frosted part. I created a new material called frosted glass and then in Raylectron converted my SU frosted glass material to Rayl...

Re: rendering

you wrote: <I didn't touch the geometry, simply convert it to Glass (solid) and apply 1 to the diffuse.> I see. I had also converted the clear glass sections to Glass(solid)!! and converted the other two sections to frosted glass. Why did you apply 1 to the diffuse? Is that to make the glass looks b...

Re: rendering

So what I guessed was the culprit was right then> I mentioned I had a few copies of the glass with different configuration as far as the frosted and solid glass, but I hide the ones I didn't need and only rendered the one which was supposedly visible. So it was the other copies of the glass occupyin...

Re: rendering

Here it is. In real life we can have a glass panel that the surface is partly clear and partly sand blasted or foggy or frosted. You have seen glass panels in commercial buildings that have foggy or sand blasted strips on them. That's the effect I like to get but at the same time showing the thickne...

Re: rendering

I did that for the strips. I made a 1/64" gap between the strips and 1/128" between the glass and the table top and the bottom of the upper counter. still the same crazy effect!!

Re: rendering

Ok. Thanks much for the explanation. Yes it does makes sense. Maybe I can get a better rendering with my shower glass enclosure then.

Thanks again.

Re: rendering

Yes I am talking about the glass strips. I had a similar design in another project which was a shower enclosure and I had a 9" clear solid glass at the bottom, 4 feet of frosted glass on top of the lower one and another 1'-3" of clear solid glass again on top of that one with no gap betwee...

Hello, I have 4 strips of glass at 2.25 inches high each making a total of 9 inches. 2 pieces are frosted glass and 2 pieces are clear solid glass as materials. When I render them, it goes crazy like this and doesn't give me a clean rendering. I even tried to delete the top and bottom faces of the s...

Re: RAYLECTRON - Download versions

Ok. I'll try that. Thank you.
One more question. When it starts rendering, it doesn't show the whole view as I have in my SU scene! Is there a setting to render the same aspect ration as the scene? When I select fit to view, it doesn't show it either! Any idea?

Many thanks as always.

Re: RAYLECTRON - Download versions

Hello again, After I updated the other day, Raylectron window when it opens is so small. I have to stretch it every time. I remember there was once a default size or a choice we could have for a view port size as a default, so it opens up always the same size. How can I do a defualt view port for re...

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes I know but I want it at the same aspect ratio as in my sketchup scene. Use to do it by default. I'll attach a couple of shots later on. Thanks much. Also I have a grass area about 6000 square feet. I don't seem to be able to convert the area to grass because it giv...

not rendering the whole skectup view/scene

Somehow after this latest update, I can't seem to be able to render the same aspect ratio as the sketchup scene(s) I have. Somehow it only renders part of the scene. I changed to the 3 main option settings and nothing makes a difference and keeps showing the same view. I remember there used to be a ...

Hello again, Up until yesterday, I rendered the model with no problem as you can see in one of the images attached.

Re: slow rendering

I did mess around with light faces a bit and somehow it went up to 112 and thanks for mentioning this. When I was done with all the lights, there were only 50 and I have no idea how in went up to 112.
I'll check them again.

Thanks much as usual.

Ok I will send you the skp file. Though it might very well work on your machine. It would be really nice if someone could go through the rendering process with my computer and see what I am missing and if he can fix it remotely. Attached is the skp file.
