Problems with overlapping image props

Recommended Posts

-

Any idea why those grey boxes are showing up where the image props overlap? (v. 10.5) It seems to be only where the the same prop overlaps itself, otherwise everything would be grey because of the tree prop.

It looks like it's only showing up in elevation and perspective views, I haven't had any problems with it in isometric yet.

Thanks!

Try using custom renderworks with the recusion level set at 9. I have a funny feeling this is the problem

Good Luck

I just tested it and a recursion level of 4 seems to solve the problem. I also don't see the problem using the final renderworks option.

The issue is with overlapping transparent objects, the lower recursion levels won't allow you to see thru all the transparent layers.

Final Quality RW mode uses a recursion level of 5, so that explains why that mode works.

Each surface will require 2 levels of recursion, one for the front side and one for the backside, so if you have 4 overlapping props you will need to set the recursion to 8.

Note that the upper limit is currently 9, but we will be lifting this restriction in a future release just in case you need more.

HTH,

Yup, that's what it was. I guess for the front/side views where over 4 image props line up I'll have to temporarily delete the 'hidden' ones.

Thanks for the help!
