  1. Rendering Expert Needed for help with Park Design Competition. I will need (1) or (2) images for a January 12th deadline. I can pay a small fee or 25% of any prize money awarded. 1st prize is $5,000, 2nd prize is $2,000. If interested please reach out to me at jeremy.p.siegel@gmail.com
  2. Hi All, For some reason Style 4 while selected as the shutter texture does not appear as a class? Also, even if I put the shutters in Style 3, which is the same as the sashes they still do not appear? What am I doing wrong? TY Jeremy
  3. Hi All, I have inadvertently clicked something in my navigation palette where my classes are no longer in alphabetical order. How do I get them back to alpha order? TY J
  4. There is a lot of useful information in this thread. Thanks all. Attached is another progress image. Is there anyway to soften the horizon line in Vectorworks?
  5. There was a lot of good info in this thread. Thanks to all. It would be nice to soften the horizon line. Anyway to do this in Vectorworks?
  6. Monadnoc & All, You have put together some really great information here. And your renderings are quite nice. I am almost ready to re-post my rendering but for (1) critical piece of information. "The Tree line in the distance from the texture resource area..." can you re-post that link, or better yet the .vwx file, here as I can't seem to find it. Additionally, is it then used as a renderworks background or is it applied as a texture to some infinite extrusion? I am not sure how that piece comes together. TY J
  7. Hi All, How can I make landscape elements ie. grass look less like green painted concrete and more like grass? In plan the grass shows as a texture but totally flattens out in a perspective/camera view. Also, is there a C4D expert out there interested in making this rendering photo realistic? TY J
  8. Hello all, For some reason I cannot use any objects, textures from the resource browser as I get the following message: "... the following files were saved using an older version of vectorworks and therefore could not be added to the list of favorites"?? See screen shot. This makes no sense as I am using VW 2010 SP4 TY J
  9. Peter, that is exactly what I had done, copied the walls up to the next level. Not something I typically do so thanks for your input, now I know. TY J
  10. This is the screen shot that should have accompanied the prior post.
  11. Hi Peter, I will post the file later. I think I spoke to soon, the layer heights are OK but my windows are set at a height in the OIP of -11'-0"???, yet its a 5'-4" window set at 7'-6" head (see attached) TY J
  12. bcd, you are correct the 12' 1/2" was confusing the program. I reset all levels to zero, closed VW and reset the levels(leaving out the 1/2") and all is well. TY J
  13. When I double click the layer through the Tools>Organization the Z & DZ just confirms the settings/heights I have input? Each wall when I select it shows up with a strange DZ in the OIP. For instance my 2nd floor walls in the OIP are DZ-4" , Z=11'-0" which relates to ... nothing I have input?
  14. I was just setting my wall heights to cut a section and realize the Delta-Z is out of whack & I can't seem to alter it. See the attached screen shot. Where is my mistake.? TY J
  15. Etienne, Thanks, I haven't been on the board in a while so this is a welcome response. TY J
  16. "Easy Mapping" is a little finicky but worked. As for the associative dimensioning, I just forgot it was set as the default in "Document Preferences" TY J
  17. Hi All, How do I rotate a hatch? I would like the bring herringbone rotated 45 degrees. (See attached screen shot). Additionally, "smart dims" with green handles where can I turn that feature off? TY J
  18. Yes, this is what I have been doing turning the class back on in the Navigation Palette. Putting it in "None" makes sense though. I was wondering if, similar to "Saved Views" I had the ability to set classes/layers on or off in the Sheet Layer... that was the dialog box I was looking for. TY Jeremy
  19. Hi all, I am sure this is a simple one but can't seem to find the fix. I have created my viewport in a class called "viewport crop" and placed it on a sheet layer. When I return to that sheet layer, the viewport does not appear because the class got turned off somehow? How do I fix this? TY Jeremy
  20. Bryan, See attached screen shot. Quartz Filters are in Applications_Utilities_Color Sync Utility. Then open the PDF you would like to modify. My Filters are all locked so this was as far as I got.... will spend some time with it later. TY J
  21. I am trying to get my 2d elevations to appear in B& W as per Peter's screen shot prior in the post. I have B&W selected in the "Advanced Properties" but still the FQRW background appears in color? Where do I make the adjustment. (See screen shot) TY J
  22. After some experimentation. I rendered the image at 300 dpi in the SLVP, changed the Sheet layer dpi to 300 and got a decent image. Set my VW preferences 3D Conversion resolution to very high. Rendering took just over a half hour. TY J
  23. When displaying the camera view in the DL I select dpi of 300. The result is jagged in the DL. When I export the image as a .png/.tiff I choose 300 dpi and get a jagged image as well. When I create a SLVP of the rendered image the result is still jagged. I have changed the Sheet Layer to 300 dpi & attempted to render the image where i get the spinning clock (not even the beachball anymore) and ultimately abandon the render after 30 minutes. I did not use the batch render option. The screen shot at 72 dpi, is just slightly worse than the image I get on screen per the methods above? This is very frustrating. Are there some tried & true CRW settings that work for a simple exterior rendering like I am trying to produce? TY J
  24. This was a screen capture from an image .tiff file exported from Vectorworks. PNG file produced a similar result. TY J
  25. Hi All, Please see the attached screen shot. The image was done w/: 1. CRW 2. 2 point lights 3. Curve detail tried both high & low 4. Ray traced shadows 5. No Auto exposure 6. No Final Gather 7. At 300 & 600 dpi What do I need to adjust to get the fascia/soffit detail to read correctly rather than the blurred jagged mess I am getting. Thanks, J
