    Rendering Styles Similar to Lumion

    Thanks! Twinmotion looks pretty good. Not quite as good, but very similar. I am really after the Color Sketch rendering style lumion offers, but figure I may have to try to replicate in photoshop....OR convince my office to bootcamp my mac and pay up for Lumion 🙂

    How do i get sketch mode with hidden line

    Andy, I hadn't thought of checking here, Oddly, all of the offenders are indeed set to render as something other than no sketch. 😞
  3. Hi, I have become enamored with the output from Lumion that I have seen working as an exhibit designer. I have been rendering using Renderworks for 8 years and have overall been happy with the results. Where I get frustrated is when I start to add realism such as glows, lighting, reflection, bump. I certainly expect the rendering time to increase, but I've had renderings take 20 + hours. I am tweaking certain settings to speed things along, but timing seems to be an issue. From what I've understood from forums and word of mouth, Lumion is a great, intuitive rendering solution that tends to put out fairly quick renderings that are equal to greater in quality than renderworks. I am sure mouch of this comes down to program aptitude, but it led me to investigate further. I didn't make it far before I learned Lumion is ONLY PC based. Our office is 100% mac and not going anywhere else anytime soon. Has anybody figured out ways to render images that have a certain watercolor effect similar to Lumion's Color Sketch style? Additionally, has anybody found another program similar to Lumion that is operable on Macs? Thanks, Gregg

    How do i get sketch mode with hidden line

    Just looking to see if anybody else has the same issues as me. I am trying to render with sketch lines and I cannot figure out why some lines just render with a normal outline while others carry the sketch lines as they should. See attached. Thanks

    Render Bitmap Blackout

    Thank you Jim, It does make me feel better to see this is happening not just to me. I am in 2018, and we will probably update to 19' in a few months. We usually wait till the first SP comes out before adopting company-wide. Not overly excited to see jnr has experienced this in 19 as well...

    Render Bitmap Blackout

    I often use render bitmaps to test render my lighting in parts of a view. Lately, I can do one render bitmap in Final Quality or any other style other than open GL, but if I try to do another, It renders for 3-5 seconds then says rendering complete with a big black box. See attached screenshot. Now, it will keep doing this unless I restart vectorworks. Upon restart, I get one more bitmap, but then the problem persists. As you can imagine, restarting constantly after making minor tweaks on things like lighting strength or glow settings really messes with one's workflow.... Help? Thanks, Gregg
