  1. @Taproot also these two : https://texturehaven.com & for HDRI's : https://hdrihaven.com
  2. My defaults are https://www.textures.com/ and https://www.poliigon.com/ , the 1k textures on textures.com fine for vector works
  3. Should work fine if your roof layer is above your wall layer , post a problem file to have a look?
  4. @bcd very impressive renders , equally impressive Lumion Pro price !!!
  5. theres 5 keynote videos ? which one has the new renderworks features?
  6. @TomWhiteLight you have to say that ! 😀 but there's no way renderworks will ever have the ability or features of vray or corona etc , and all the associated plugins with those. (and nor should it as thats not its function) I like renderworks btw but its not for the high end arch viz renders some clients want. you just can't do in renderworks the examples from here: https://corona-renderer.com/forum/index.php?board=3.0
  7. @Jim Smith I think if you want real photorealistic you should factor in sending it out to a 3d vis company. Renderworks is basic and more for outline communication / design intent with clients , while the 3d vis companies do the brochures / sales buff stuff , with the nice lens flare and depth of field etc! The dedicated 3d render packages just have too many features missing from render works and ease of use. Definitely move from OpenGL to renderworks though - there's loads of sites for textures (poliigon.com , textures.com), an OpenGL v renderworks image below (image took 1min.23 secs in renderworks)
  8. i normally publish the sheets (plans, sections, elevations, details etc) as dwg files to send to the engineers for them to work on , and a pdf copy for reference.
  9. @Ruby S very good presentation btw. pity the features not for 2021....
  10. + maxon/redshift integration + tabbed pallets as per C4D (no mention of door / window / stair improvements though !😂 )
  11. there is a recent 2020 webinar on the vectorworks university site on energos - (haven't watched it yet) or this might be of use? : https://www.markstephensarchitects.com/shop/vectorworks-energos-training-notes/
  12. @Kevin C it should appear on your resources as below - just make sure all icons ticked on top bar at red line? - you will have to set up the files first also. My understanding is that 1 is for each user and is not shared online - ie. each user can set up their own preferences and hot keys etc to suit. , 2 - templates, title sheets, wall styles etc are in a shared 'office' vectorworks file on your cloud.
  13. @Christiaan it should read as 2 on cloud and 1 on local computer
  14. 1 & 2 straightforward - put your drawings standards on your preferred cloud based system, not sure 3 is possible. someone needs to be in charge of 2 so libraries can be updated for all.
  15. Hi, I'm on an iMac with 2020 .SP.3 and Catalina 10.15.4, but not having any problems. I find it goes a bit crazy if I have the navigation graphics set to best performance , so I leave it at good performance and compatibility.
  16. video working for me -- try right click and download?
  17. agree, it should be unlimited installs , then a check-in and release option similar to what C4D / Maxon did for R21, so you can work from any computer.
  18. ran the updater repair tool......... only 6253 files repaired !! (no change to libraries)
  19. when I open package manager - none of the previews of the libraries show. downloaded image fill library to see if it works, it just dumps all the files into the applications folder as per second image? (os. 15.3 and vectorworks 2020. SP.3)
  20. I don't get this? Why would you use this, when affinity , photoshop or pixelmator pro are quicker, better quality and have more options for tone mapping/stylising? - quick test of upscaling: an image in pixelmator pro took about 6 seconds, vectorworks cloud took over 5 minutes and was a smaller image? Am I missing something?
  21. @Don Seidel xxxx. Literally says on the CDC website its not the flu. Killing plenty of people worldwide. The point is to stop it spreading further. no need to reply.
  22. it would be like buying a Ferrari to go to the local shop........!!! will look nice but you'll never change out of first gear to use vectorworks.
