  1. Hi, HDRI and image props does reflect. BUT - what if the image is not an HDR? I still don't understand why simple image background would not reflect same as HDRI.... Thanks
  2. The mirror texture reflects everything else perfectly. However, the BG image is "calculated" (through a window) at the end, so it skips the reflection in the mirror object. Any suggestions how to work this around?
  3. Now i get the following messages on every file i save. Any suggestions??
  4. I tried the batch-convert command. after few files i get a popup message: "this file was created by an illegal copy of VW and now is corrupted". I have a legal copy with a dongel. always had! and the files mentioned are pretty new (from the past year or two, versions 2010, 2008). I thought maybe one file is corrupted...but it kept doing it to more files. I stopped the process immediately before i lose more files.... Is this a bug???
  5. Is your computer runs in English only or other languages as well? Did you try switching user?
  6. It is a major issue and an obstacle using VW that can't support file transactions with correct font / language support between VW files and DWG. The problem is on both Mc and PC. On Mac - The problem is more acute since the use of Hebrew is almost impossible even in usual drawing.
  7. I totally support the view/batch render issue ! There must be a way to connect between the two. And also: -to edit/update multiple batch render options. -to create batch render from multiple views or cameras, with the same preferences.
  8. So..... we use the sophisticated new stair tool that can't make the basic? hmmmm...... :-(
  9. In old versions it was possible to see dashed-line for upper/level stairs. Is it possible in the new stair tool? couldn't find it...
  10. OK. got it. Section VP on sheet layer defines from design layer in the fact the you can't render only the VP. The control goes from rendering modes and not info pallet.It means you render the layer. But still.... it looks like cuts being made in the old cut command years ago...
  11. Peter, It didn't affect the VP on the design layer. un-checking the "display objects beyond view plane" shows that the extra lines are from the windows. It looks like a bug. since section VP on sheet is ok....
  12. on sheet layer it looks smooth an clean on design layer looks bad with extra lines any suggestions? is it a bug?
  13. Shawn, The file was created by another architect on a previous version.They used simple 2D objects. They draw in 2D using openings. no textures. no classes or layers. I replaced or updated almost everything. So i doubt if it's a texture issue. Possible issues: walls -> i used their old objects but added wall styles and textures windows and doors -> i used what they put, but edited settings and classes. The render does not crash.It stops with the prompt: "error: cinema 4D not enough memory"...
  14. Update: Before checking for corrupted objects - I exported the file to VW2010. It renders final-quality in minutes, no crashing, no memory issues !!!
  15. Hi Shaun, Your models are very nice!! pretty much what i do. I will try your suggestion regarding corrupted objects.
  16. Hi Tasmin, I want to thank you again for doing your great work!! I always check system recommendations and try staying up-to-date. In previous versions you were still able to work fine even if you didn't have the full requirements. This time, it appears to be not a recommendation but a MUST. It is a big leap, and not "just" another upgrade. That's why i believe the emphases should be different.
  17. After reading Tamsin's article i now understand it's a must. Too bad NNA does not give this information as part of purchasing instructions. It means another 150$ or so of upgrading OS system + time spending on re-installing or formatting....grrrr....
  18. WOW!!! Tamsin - you are the BEST !!! covering everything..... Thanks :-)))))))
  19. Vincent - My point exactly: some explanation on the "logic" of HDRI and new texture is exactly what i need..... and no where to find. Grant - I think that you have a point. Imported light objects are not working properly. It's ok to create new ones....but it could be nice that NNA would mention it before we struggle.... Shaders are cryptic !! exactly. no idea how to handle it now. Again - a manual would be nice..... And no...the "help" doesn't do the work this time. there are to many variants...
  20. Hi Vincent, For example: when i open a file that i started in 2010: All light objects not "lit". Although in the object info they are... Lit fog - not working i tried creating new BG and nothing.... Rendering options: I appreciate the reduction in the options. I understand now i can control the specific options in 'custom", but i don't understand the "meaning" of the different options.... In textures: Again - nice change. however, i had some "tricks" using texture that now gone (for instance: to create "lit" object i used color transparency...now it's gone. But i guess there is clever way doing that.....dont know how....)
  21. I'm not so sure it's inferior.... i have a feeling that it is too much of a change - and so, it must be followed with good technical help !!! Unfortunately, not all of us are located near NNA headquarters....
  22. I am working on a 3D model rendering of a 3 story house. Whenever i try rendering (other then open GL)i get a "cinema 4D not enough memory" alert. if restart the computer, close all background applications - i might be able to render one view, fast render only. After this it does not render anymore... The file size is only 40Mb. I have win7 32bit, 2Gb ram,2 Duo CPU E6750 266GHz I ordered extra 2Gb ram (although max usage is only 3.5..). Is there anything else i can try? I worked so hard on this model, and if i can't render it's a big problem !!
  23. I started working on the 2011. After many years being used to work with lighting and render options in a certain way i now realize everything has changed. Lighting object do not respond as before..... Is there a manual elaborating how to use the new rendering options (beside the short movie in the "what's new..").
  24. We have some unresolved issues on a mac computer - OS 10.5.8, VW2010 architect: 1. sketch style editor does not show a preview 2. eyedropper tool does not work, on any variation and on any object... 3. Hebrew support - on PC it works smoothly, but on mac it is so frustrating !!! simple text box can be ok with one specific font, unless you combine numbers. then it gets all messed up. Other tools does not accept hebrew at all: callout, PIO, spreadsheets etc. Before we upgrade to 2011 - is there any progress on those fields?
