    Glad that worked for ya.

    As Tom mentioned, worksheets and worksheet functions are usually the way to go with these types of items, but to some users, especially newer users, worksheet stuff can be a bit intimidating.

    I use them practically daily for one thing or another, but they still scare the hell out of me 🙂


    That option to click on something and just select the menu item to check the Volumetric properties is pretty cool.

    In fact, if you quickly just wanted to get the overall sq. feet of your entire wall(s) you don't even need to extract anything....just select the wall and select the Volumetric properties menu item and it will report back to you to the total volume of the entire wall(s)


    As you aptly noted...:knowledge is KING!!!"

  2.  Not trying to be too pessimistic here, but the reality between Redshift in VW and “the real” Redshift used in Cinema 4d, are about as disparate as croissants and fill dirt. 

    I did a few test renders.  
    An exterior render, not even utilizing the ‘denoiser’ option for Redshift in VW, took about 14 minutes. That same exact scene utilizing Redshift within Cinema 4d took just under two minutes !

    You do the math.

    i had such high hopes for Redshift being implemented within VW, but it seems it is not quite ready for prime time.

  3. Just make a custom selection script, one for select only screen plane objects and one for select only layer plane objects.

    works like a charm.  I use those two scripts quite often.

  4. JBenghiat, what is your general feeling about how VW has Implemented Redshift into 2022?

    I was somewhat disappointed that unlike Redshift in C4d, there is no IPR window where you get instant, constant feedback of how your scene appears , in general and especially related to lighting, etc.?

    I also noted that the rendering times using Redshift in VW are substantially slower than rendering time using Redshift in C4d.

    Any thoughts on this?

  5. Ohhhh....you guys at VW really pulled a fast one...

    In test driving 2022 I opened one of my existing files that used my Windoor items......

    The were all gone....disappeared. I found no way to re-gen them. 

    Any paltry explanation as to why this is the case??


  6. Yeah, Julian’s Windoor has a little different approach and options than does the native VW doors and windows, but once you wrap your brain around it, it all makes sense.

    i have yet to see how VW has implemented the Windoor items.

    Yeah, I have had the same 'less than acceptable' results, as well.  But this one I was pretty happy with.

    Without getting too granular, there are quite a few tweaking options available within the Photoshop 'actions' relating to this.

    I had a lot of fun tweaking the various settings. The guy who created the product has a pretty good tutorial available, which is more than helpful.

    Check it out if you wish.




  8. Andrew, how goes it? 🙂

    Well…..since you asked.  I am a little put off at the moment, for several reasons.

    First off, that I would need to “ have a conversation” with someone at the company before I could download the trial version. I read that and my jaw hit the floor. As you may recall I did not upgrade to 2021 because of all the existing items in the program that needed some attention and fixing, which did not get that attention. Especially, among other things, my all time favorite complaint, that they cannot ever seem to address the issue where a wood grain texture around door and window trim can ludicrously go in one direction only….which would only happen on Earth 2. For a guy like me who does a lot of photo realistic rendering, that is the death knell.

    Also, based upon what Juan P mentioned to me about the Windoor items only being available in the Design Series, and apparently not offered to anyone who just wants VW architect….seems like a really bad decision. I really am not affected, as I already have and use Windoor exclusively. I  never bother using the native VW door and window tools…..ever.


    So…..I have an intuitive feeling that there will exist the same old issues of not fixing things that are still ‘broken’. But, I cannot qualify that because I need to “have that conversation” with a rep before I can download the trial version to have a little test drive.  
    I am only one tiny voice…..why would they listen or care about my opinions.  🙂

    So…..aren’t you glad you asked, Andrew 🙂
