Problems Redering a Floor

Recommended Posts

I've killed a morning trying to figure this out. Its got to be something simple.

I'm creating a customer presentation for some mill work. I would like to have a rendered floor, and have done this many times in the past using VW11.5.

For reasons I don't understand, the surface of the floor will not render in renderworks- it remains white, yet the edges of the floor render. To further confuse me, the floor reflected in the glass doors is rendered correctly. I have tried creating the floor as a "Floor" as well as a simple extrude which is all I really need. Same result. I have tried the mapping window -had to shut down and restart the computer to stop the program from crashing here- but it shows it rendered correctly. It renders correctly using radiosity.

Any suggestions?

Select the Floor Object >enter Group. If it's NURBS Surfaces then assign textures to all 6 surfaces. If it's Extruded Polygon then >OIP>Closed.

specular highlights maybe too strong? Also, the mapping may have been corrupted. Try making a new texture and replacing the old one.

Which rendering mode are you using that it is not working?

You mentioned it worked with Radiosity and Vw 11.5.1.
