  1. Thank for the reply - I'll be looking forward to the feature videos on the RW improvements. @Selin- will the 2018 changes to the Reflectance shader correct the black textures issue that was occasionally seen in 2017 when importing C4D Materials?
  2. To follow on zoomer's point, the Subdivision UI as shown in the 2018 commercial does not show the 'exact' in-program UI. Question: I saw that new cloth and metal Renderworks shaders were introduced, but I haven't found the feature video on what specifically was added, nor was it included in the list of new features in the original post. Is there any further info on this? Thanks.
  3. I don't believe there is one 'Master' wishlist thread for all the Door and Window improvements needed, but @Christiaanhas created separate Wishlists for a bunch of the required improvements. Here's a select few of them:
  4. I don't have any experience with Landmark, so I can't directly help with your plant database question, but here's a few general Vw troubleshooting tips: 1) Does this problem persist after restarting Vw and/or your computer? 2) Does it still happen if you log in using a different user account? 3) Does it happen in all files or just one? Try a blank file and see if the problem persists. 4) If it happens in all files you may need to Reset Vw User Preferences. 5) Have you contacted tech support using the link at the bottom of this page? HTH.
  5. A search of the forums for 'HDRI' gives a bunch of past results, HERE is one that has some info on the requirements for HDRI backgrounds. Also take a look in the help file: Creating Panoramic Image Backgrounds :: Vw2017 Help
  6. Dosch Design has several 2D collections of Seniors, but I'm not sure if any of their seniors are in swimwear. DOSCH 2D Viz-Images: People - Seniors DOSCH 2D Viz-Images: People - Seniors Vol.2
  7. To force an update to the Data Stamp, I disable and re-enable the check mark for 'Show File Name' on the Data Stamp OIP. In Vw2016, at least, that works to force it to update the file name. (I have never had to delete the existing Data Stamp & insert a new one like you describe).
  8. Vw Section Viewports can set a 'Finite' view range using the Viewport Depth on the OIP. See THIS PAGE from the Vw2017 Help File. EDIT - I see you're asking about Top / Plan view depth, which Vw doesn't really have. I would send the parapet windows to the Back, and create a parapet cap that will be in front / on top of the parapet windows.
  9. I'm plenty cheerful, see? But I am not a Beta tester, only an end user who likes good UI design in 1.0 releases.
  10. Thanks JimW. I really hope that is not the permanent plan; I'd hate to see the roll-out of such a major new feature marred by poor UI decisions.
  11. I gotta say that the color selections for the active pane header switching from 'dark grey' to 'dark blue' is very subtle ( too subtle for my weary, aging eyes). Additionally, the dark text on the dark background is almost illegible. Will there be a preference to select colors that are more user friendly? (Better yet, have UI color choices that are more user friendly in the first place). Thanks.
  12. RAL colors are copyrighted, so unless Vw licenses them you won't get any assistance in importing them here on the User Forums.
  13. Ok. So if the preferred rendering mode is HL, after you make all these changes to the model in the VP per your demo GIFs, does the VP still need 'updated' from the OIP button? [ I may have gotten confused / distracted from the announced feature (direct editing of SLVPs) by the OpenGL HL display function].
  14. So if the SL Section VP is assigned a RW Hidden Line Style, how do we display this 'special' OpenGL Hidden Line mode? Do we have to switch the VP Style to OpenGL before we start editing the VP?
  15. JimW - thanks for the clarification. I was hoping that it would be a global OpenGL improvement so that we no longer have to wait for Section DLVPs to be updated.
