  2. Thank tyou for all the replies about impotying the wood sidng into VW. What I am incountering is the file I import is too small to show up on a normal wall. What size, scale do I create the plug-in sample texture of siding before I export it to photoshop? Then after making all the changes in Photoshop, and them impoting back into my current drawing of VW as a new texture, what are the proper steps I need to do in order for this to become a texture that I can place on any size wall? Do I need to check the horticontal/Vert. boxes and how do I fill the entire square with my new texture? I guess Iam really confused about exporting and importing the proper size and scale in order to achieve my goal.
  3. I am trying to create some light blue wood siding. I not quite sure How I replace one color in photohop with another. I have exported the one tecture of siding as a image file and open it in photoshop- I guess thais a prayer for someone who knows Photoshop and how to manipulate a photo(just the color w/out effecting the whole picture.

  5. My question is: I have always created building that are no larger than one floor and thus when I made elevations(front, rear, etc) for planning review- it was fairly easy. Now I am working with something that is three stories. I have decided to create each floor plan in a different layer but when I go to show elevations there is that line that separates each floor and thus I don't get a clean flat front elevation. Should I do another layer that is just the shell of the house? in order to get my elevations for planning review? What is the proper way to connect all the floors in order to achieve elevation that can go into city planning? Lastly, my building is 30 feet high, 3 floors, and there is a bump out(bay windows on the 2nd and 3rd floor- so there is an over-hang from the first to second floor and it is extremely hard to do. Maybe you can help
