    3 D Walkthrough

    I found this video very helpful for learning about the walkthrough tool https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/10134/quick-tip-walkthrough-video.html

    Yes, thank you! So obvious, but I couldn't think of it!

    Room Fill Layer

    Hi All, Is there a way to turn on and off a room fill? Perhaps by layer? I use color fills for all rooms, and I want to be able to print in color without showing the fill in some layer sets. Thanks!

    CAD show length layer

    Hi All, I would like to control the display of CAD line length and angle labels by layer in addition to via the dbx. Is there a way to do this? I know how to use the dbx below under display options, but I have a file with a bunch of different polylines and I would like to be able to turn on and off the labels without opening a dbx for each one. I would also like to display labels with some layer sets and not others for layout views. Thanks for any suggestions!

    High res Foreground tree

    Thank you both, these are great suggestions! I will try all of these methods. I don't have experience with photo editing, but I am starting to dabble in GIMP to crop my renderings to specific sizes, so I have some more learning to do :). Thanks again

    High res Foreground tree

    Hi All, I am trying to achieve a ray trace with a tree in the foreground that sort of frames the picture. Attached is an example of my goal- I did not create the attached jpg. I am getting close by placing a tree close to the camera but mostly out of view, but every tree I have tried is blurry. See the saved camera in the attached file. Then I place another big tree closer to the house to create a shadow on the house/driveway. I will crop that tree out of the final picture. Are there any trees CA has that you recommend for close-up high resolution (5500x3200 pixels) ray trace? I found a thread from the old Chief Talk where they had a similar problem and Larry Kumpost suggested a high res tree, but I don't know where to find one. Here is the old thread http://www.chieftalk.com/showthread.php?34289-Exterior-Critique&highlight=trees+foreground. Thank you in advance! THE ADLER RENDERING.zip

You all had great solutions to my issue! I wrote CA to see if our thread could be restored in case it would be helpful for others. Thanks for your time and thoughts!

    re-direct My Documents

    Thank you! I had to take a 2nd look at your post, but I think we can re-direct things now that you pointed out that ini file.

    re-direct My Documents

    Thank you, the one drive folder is within the hard drive, then it gets backed up to the one drive cloud. So I think we are ok there. I am wondering if I can change the path to "my documents" to refer to a different folder. My work server is set up so that all computers' "my documents" folders are on the server. I think Chief automatically looks for "my documents" for certain things. I am hoping to change that to a different file location that is not on my server. I read an article this morning that lead me to believe this is possible in version X11, but maybe not previous versions. Is that right?

    re-direct My Documents

    Thank you Rene, I was able to change almost all of those to my hard drive. But when I clicked "Show" all program paths, the bottom program path is still set to "My Documents", and I don't know how to change it. A snip is attached. Thanks, Lee

    re-direct My Documents

    Hello, My "My Documents" folder on my work computer is actually on our server, and I know CA is not meant to be used over a network. I would like everything Chief Architect uses "My Documents" for to go in a different folder. How do I re-direct everything that references "My Documents"? I have started a folder on my hard drive called "CA My Documents" and was hoping to use that as the replacement folder. I have already moved all the CA files and libraries that I can find, but chief seems to look for that My documents folder sometimes. Thank you, Lee X10
