Re: stain renders

That link is an excellent summary of tips for 6.5. The original video covers the same in more detail, but it's hard to refer to when you want to check something. More tips like this would ease a lot of frustration and questions. Good job!

Re: stain renders

I believe you need to go to your Render settings and increase 'Interpolation' (under Global Illumination).

Re: Mirror

The mirror shader doesn't have any specific settings to do this, but you could apply a texture to the wall behind the mirror to get the reflection image you want, and adjust the mirror glass to minimize reflection and maximize transparency. A quick example: Mirror.jpg This just uses a screen shot of...

Re: reference file invalid

Are you referring to an export from ArchiCAD? If so, I believe I had a similar issue where I couldn't open the new file created using a reference file. As I recall, I was trying to open the file directly by double clicking it. I had to open Artlantis and open the file directly from Artlantis to get ...

Re: Export to Twinmotion 2018

Thank you. Having worked with both Artlantis and TM, I find there are things I prefer to do in Artlantis, but I still want the features of TM. I'm glad it will be fixed.

Export to Twinmotion 2018

I just realized this is not possible, as Artlantis creates a '.tma' file and Twinmotion 2018 looks for a '.tm' file. Is this being fixed? I was counting on being able to do this for a current project (meaning, do it today). You'd think the ability to communicate between Artlantis and Twinmotion woul...

Re: grainy renderings....

If you don't have "Enhanced Background" checked (which you should not have checked) as per the parallel post, I would think you need to increase your Global Illumination and/or Sampling settings. It is hard to say which settings to increase without knowing what settings you are using. Just...

Re: New Security Gatehouse Building

Again, very nice!

How do you get the reflection map to not be repetitive? It is very realistic and convincing.

Also, are you using HDRI backgrounds? Or did you model the buildings that are being reflected in the façade?

Thanks,
Karl
