Re: HDR environment maps

Thanks very much. It did come out far better than some of my earlier models. But I guess when you're retired you have time to correct your mistakes. :lol:

Re: HDR environment maps

They weren't that big. I think around 2000 something. I'll see if I can find something bigger and try it again. Thanks for the help.

HDR environment maps

G'day.

Can you educate me on how to syncronise HDR maps to your model. For example, my output image is 1024x576 pixels and when I select a HDR, the background is all pixelated?

Re: Images in Render

G'day it's been a while I know. A few health issues had me down. I am though now working on my newest project, a model of a car my wife and I owned and raced back in the 80s. So now my current problem is as before, a black back ground when placing the images (png) on surfaces, in this case curved. I...

Re: Images in Render

ah, it should render just fine but the problem is, the picture occupy the exact same plane as the object it touches so move it away from it like, 1/64" otherwise, Raylectron will not know which is which. Better yet, paint the face with that picture instead of having it aa an overlay. I had to ...

Re: Images in Render

Right click on it and select "Use as material". Delete it then recreate the rectangle and paint it, then group it. Raylectron do export these images, but they act different from jpg to png for example. What type is yours? It was a png, the Chevrolet logo in fact on an engine rocker cover....

Images in Render

How do you get images to appear from Sketchup to the render? Sometimes they are filled in with black, other times they don't appear at all?

Re: Stargate ships

Thank you, it is a little out my league so far, but we're both learning, albeit via the phone. I'll pass that on, hopefully when things settle down she might be able to get on here.

Any tips you can pass on, I'd be grateful. Myself, I'm attempting some rendering on my car project.

Stargate ships

These are a few of the Stargate themed ships and aircraft our youngest daughter and I have been working on these last few years. She is currently serving with the Air Force, with the Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron. When she isn't there, she'll be at the nearby hospital. Carrier_deck.png This is her...

Rendering cloth

I've been trying to work it out, thus far I'm at a loss. Is there a special way to give fabrics a realistic look; such as bathroom towells?

Many thanks in advance.

Rendering help

I’m posting this on behalf on our daughter. She’s in the Air Force and consequently with her work (as a Doctor) and this Covid thing, she has very little to no time as far as getting online. When she has a break, she’ll spend an hour or so to do some modeling, as she says in her own words, to wind d...
