  1. As of March 2018, this problem still isn't corrected. Why is that?

    Rendering produces red block

    I trashed the viewport and made another. It seems to be ok now. The problem was the viewport. Strange i've never seen this before. Thanks Jim.

    Rendering produces red block

    I've just encountered something i've never seen before in using VWs for the past 6 years. When rendering a viewport in Fast Renderworks or Realistic Exterior Final, the result produces a red block on the left side of the drawing. Can anyone tell me why this is happening? Could it be a memory or processor issue? It only happens on one file. All the other files seem to render fine. Mac OS 10.13.2 VWs designer 2017 SP5 (Build 402127) 3 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5 32 GB 1866 MHz DDR3
  4. Thanks everyone. The aperture/ISO settings in the camera definitely made a difference. Just wondering though, it seems the heliodon doesn't have as much of a dramatic effect with Background RW settings as in Open GL when doing solar studies. When setting the heliodon to say 11pm, eliminating a RW background or setting one to night and turning off all environmental lighting in the lighting settings except indirect reflections, i'm still getting light coming in the windows reflecting off surfaces. Why is that?
  5. Thanks zoomer and Jim. I'll experiment with the exposure.
  6. Thanks Jim. What exposures would you suggest for the camera effect?
  7. Josh, I've been using HDRI Sky Day Mostly Sunny. What other options would you suggest as far as a hidden sun?
  8. Thanks for the tips, zoomer. I've attached an image to show my problem. It seems though there is some other competing light source. I've tried various settings where the heliodon is on or off, adjusting the light output of the HDRI background, changing the lighting options but continue to get these hot spots and the same general lighting angle coming through the openings. Not a problem with Open GL, just the Renderworks settings.
  9. I've been trying to find the best settings for an interior that is lit by the Heliodon, Custom Renderworks rendering and a HDRI background, that is only natural daylight, no artificial lighting present. Has anyone found a good setting for this?

    Floor object in Worksheet

    Great. I'm hoping they redesigned worksheets in version 2018 or will in the future to be more intuitive and integrated with a BIM-like simplicity.
