  1. 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?
  2. Thanks zoomer and Jim. I'll experiment with the exposure.
  3. Thanks Jim. What exposures would you suggest for the camera effect?
  4. Josh, I've been using HDRI Sky Day Mostly Sunny. What other options would you suggest as far as a hidden sun?
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks Benson
  9. ok thanks zoomer. i'll try and search for it.
  10. I produced a site model from a topographical map imported into VWs. The contour interval setting is the same as the topo. I'd like to produce a topo of the proposed cuts but the elevation markers come out disorganized as pictured below. How do i edit the markers so they don't overlap or repeat?
  11. Thank you Mike and Wes for your help.
  12. I'm trying to create a simple wall section with a section viewport but can't get the components to show up as viewed in the edit wall styles window. I've read all the posts and info in the Help file for the past hour or so but can't seem to find the answer to this simple procedure. Attached is the file. Any help would be greatly appreciated. wall section.vwx
