Re: Grass

I don't know where you got this suggestion from but all you need to do is use the "Convert material" drop down list button and select "Grass" (using whatever unit you like, in my case, mm) then adjust the number of blades per area to like 0.1 or another number that will generate no more than 2 milli...

Here's a quick render, less than 5 min on my old i7-2600 / 8 threads. I've set the floor, table and a few things a Shiny, the settings for the Illumination settings are below and set the Intensity to 6.2 and this is the result i get. I did notice in your model that oyu have duplicate faces occupying...

The best if for you to PM me your skp file and I'll make you a video of how I make renders, this way, if there are anything in your skp model that need changing, I will show you, as well as how to render it because a general tutorial, such as those on our site, may not work for your model for other ...

Re: Thanks!

Make sure you set your windows to pure white and 100% transparent on both front and back faces. The render you posted desn't seem right to me, can you post a screen shot of the Illumination settings? at 300 samples, it should look really nice. perhaps you could PM me your skp file and I can do a ren...

Re: So what's this little rectangle??

oh that one, ok, that's the material preview box, when you hover your mouse cursor over the materials in the material list, it brings up that little box with the material preview. Not sure why it does that sometimes but it doesn't affect the render.

Re: So what's this little rectangle??

usually it's got to do with geometry, like there is another object on the other side that is touching this face, or the face is doubled up.

We do not have such software but if you know how to program in Pascal, you could use our BrownRecluse software to do just that.

Re: problem with installation

Raylectron is only for Windows so it won't work on Mac unless you use Apple's built-in Boot Camp program to partition your hard drive to dual-boot Windows and MAC, or other software that allows to run Windows in a virtual environment from your MAC OS.

Re: BW barks up all branches of the folder tree

I use v6.3 and scanning just the PDF works. The directory of the PDF doesn't work not because BW isn't capable but because the server doesn't allow directory indexing.

You have to find the page where all the PDF are listed in order to get them. Like your PDF link example, what was the page you found it in?

Re: CPU VS GPU

They should remain hidden unless some other scenes unhide them, in which case, they will not be hidden in Raylectron as it does not hide/unhide objects in scenes. What you can do is create a new Layer in Sketchup and move the object to be hidden in that layer then disable the layer.

Re: CPU VS GPU

The extension is installed within Sketchup, the installer installs it in the same place except you can use the shortcut to it to open already saved .rof files or any .obj files. It also lets you totally uninstall it. As for functionality, they are both identical.

Re: CPU VS GPU

it's ok. you have the same CPU as I do except mine is not OC and I get much faster results with the CPU. The GPU is faster for small outdoor models or small models with only one or two lights, but it depend on the complexity of the model too and how much reflection materials have. The CPU version ha...

Re: CPU VS GPU

They are both going to produce photo realistic results but the GPU is mainly used fro very small models, like prototypes of parts like a watch etc. the CPU can handle very large models and because of its grain free capabilities, it will outperform the its GPU counterpart. But that is, if you have a ...

Re: AMD wx4100

Hi,

Hold down the Ctrl key and double click on the Raylectron shortcut to run it, not from Sketchup, it will re-initialize the GPU.

Raylectron prefer NVidia over AMD but it should still work, with 1024 cores, it'll still be slow however. Have you tried the CPU version see if you get faster results?
