Import jpeg image

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to import a jpeg digital photo of carpet into renderworks and use it as a flooring material in a room rendering. If so, exactly how - new to renderworks.

You don't import the image into Vectorworks, you create a texture using the image. In the resource browser you will see two small triangles on the upper right, click on the bottom one. Choose New Resource in (file name)>Renderworks Texture... This will bring up the Edit Texture dialog box. Name your texture then in the Color: pull down menu choose Image Color* and you will get a dialog box to choose the image.

... then when you have your texture you will need an object (floor) to apply it to.

You can create a polygon & extrude it a little then from the Resource Browser drag and drop the texture onto it.

Be sure your polygon has a fill otherwise the texture won't be visible when you render the model.
