  1. Give this a vote @Jim Smith
  2. Thanks for the links guys. Lots of pros and cons. One thing Lumion seems to have going for it from an initial observation is better rendering. But Twinmotion seems to have better intuitive user interaction and is cheaper to purchase.
  3. How does Lumion compare with Twinmotion?

    Service Pack 4 for Vectorworks 2018 Released

    Way to go @JimWand the team. The summary is great. I can now look very quickly at those aspects of the program that impact me as a user.

    Artlantis Twinmotion

    I think you're talking about apples, oranges and pears. Renderworks works great for what it is, an internal render engine for VW. Artlantis is the next step up to achieve photo realistic renders and Twinmotion is a whole other ballgame that makes models in scenes come alive. What is it that you want to present? And who are you presenting it too? Answer these two questions and I think you'll have our answer. Twinmotion in my opinion is brilliant.

    How did you down load the content? Via the Resource Manager or thru the VSS website?

    Focus Rendering Attention

    I have worked with 3dsmax in the past and with their setup I could have the whole rendered image in background and simply patch render the offending area. That would be a cool feature.

    Focus Rendering Attention

    As a work around, sorta, I will reset my viewport crop to surround the offending location as you've described and then re-render and then if I'm satisfied with the results I'll return the crop to it's original extents and re-render the whole scene.
  13. Try this site @Matt Overtonhttps://renderpeople.com/ They have really ramped up the number of models they have this past year. Lots of figures seated. Have a look.
  14. This has been an interesting thread. One thing I can add is that amongst our 3 workstations only one has 2018 on it and it's mine and I've only used it for one project. Everything else has been done on 2017. Why? Several things I think but thinking deeper about it I find...well...2018 really didn't set the world on fire (for me). I've stated as much when it first came out. I think it is going to slink into obscurity and 2019 will take it's place on our workstations. (With the hope that there will be some good upgrades especially to existing functions) I do have the luxury of not having to pay for the VSS but it is valuable when it comes to the future. Just my 5 cents. We don't have pennies in Canada anymore.
  15. I think this is a decent idea. It would be great to see them labeled or sub divided into the different aspects of VW like all that apply to Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Fundamentals, etc. I'm generally on the Architect side of VW so I'd like to quickly glance at all the fixes that apply to Architect.
