Re: Round edges

I get what you are saying and that's why there are software like Lumion and Twinmotion which will give nice results and fast. Raylectron wasn't designed for this, it was designed for another reason, otherwise, we would have use The Unreal engine and do like everyone else. The grass in Raylectron was...

Re: Round edges

With the model being triangulated to begin with, it will never look 100% like real life because no matter the render engine you use, triangles are flat and it's surface shape is approximated. Now, there is nothing perfectly sharp, not even a razor blade, you look at one under a microscope and it is ...

Re: Round edges

No there isn't as it doesn't change the geometry. Do you have a screen shot of how fake it looks? Perhaps round the edges in Sketchup first. I always tell the designers to model as it would be in real life and the render will reflect this work.

Re: Materials has dissapeared fro raylectron

That's just it, the materials listed in the drop down comes from the default materials upon installing Raylectron, in the folder of the icon next to the drop down.

Re: Materials has dissapeared fro raylectron

If you just download the full installation EXE, not the RBZ, it will reinstall the material folder. Uninstall the one you already have first so there isn't 2 copied in 2 different place. Have you done a search on your C: to find that folder so that you don't lose the materials you created?

Re: Materials has dissapeared fro raylectron

Have you installed it using the EXE once before when you had all the materials and then installed the update using the RBZ from within Sketchup instead?

Re: Materials has dissapeared fro raylectron

It looks like it's not looking in the proper folder or that it has moved. When you click on the yellow folder icon next to "Convert this material", does it open the right one? It should be in your "Documents\Raylectron\Favorite Materials".

Re: Parallel Projection Render Issues

I've never experience this before. Can you orbit etc and still all black?. Is it an outdoor scene? Can you PM me some screen shots or even PM me the SKP model? It's very hard to find the problem without visualizing it.

Re: Bug in the GPU render's Poup-ups

You do not need to de-activate the CPU to install the GPU, the activation is good for both and you can install both (in 2 different folder) and create shortcuts to use either. As for the resolution, must be a bug and we will address this. But, did you first stop the render and place it in performanc...

Re: Date of saved file is today rather than date of file on server

BW does save the date returned by the server. However, if the file is auto-generated via a script like PHP then the date will be the time of the download.

Re: downloading full-sized images from coppermine gallery

yes it should, well, it uses the date the server returns. If the file is from a PHP script for example, it more likely have the date it was generated (the date the picture was viewed).

With 112 lights, it'll take more to update. Mine took 5 min to update with 48 lights. You need to look at the % at the bottom, next to the Free memory, it would be like "This frame: 35%". Do you need that many lights? Combine the emitting faces that are clustered together into a group, say, 6 in a g...
