  1. Fellas, looking at Johns images above, this actually confirms the issues that I have talking about. The above floor finishes have the same base colour with some variation in the PBR showing different tones and reflections according to the light types and direction, which is exactly what I would be expecting. I was going to send two more images, but when I looked at these the tones are somewhat similar, which is in stark contrast to the computer images I did when adding ceiling lighting/camera settings. This is a common problem when trying to compare colours a
  2. John, It doesn't really matter how much light you give the area as I have done several attempts on doing this, the base colour is still grey only much lighter whereas the actual pavings are a creamy/brown tones which are obvious in the SR render.
  3. Mark thanks for your solution, worked a treat with the split windows on the centre section, I could insert triangular fillets where the mullions meet to match the window framing, but visually it looks OK as is, see pic. Regards Neil.
  4. Nothing received on my original query, any suggestions.
  5. Logged into to support and got the back-up procedure and:- 1.File size too large, Max size allowed is 2MB per file 2.The Back-Up file was saved in WinRAR, which I don't have a license, can this be done at CA's end.
  6. Graham, initially I tried to send the plan file but its size is too large ( 12MB ) so unless someone can give an alternative path, then I guess this will end up as a stalemate, I have a presentation tomorrow, so I'll just have to talk my way around the software's deficiencies. Thanks heaps for your input todate. Regards Neil.
  7. Graham, thanks for the feed back and understand where you are coming from, however I am happy to accept one or the other, but the PBR would/should be the priority as this is the ultimate format that I would show to clients, so I still don't understand why I can't get the the PBR to an acceptable colour range and forgo any other variation to the SR. Every time I made changes, the PBR made only very slight modifications to colour tones and basically the base colour still being grey was the dominant colour, surely this is a glitch in the software and seeing that PBR
  8. Have set up a bay window and require the window sections to meet at 45degree as show in attached pic, however I can't get both sections ( left & right ) to meet the centre one, programme will only allow one to meet and if the opposite is connected, a masonry fillet appears on the opposite side. CA's programme assumes bay windows are design for framed walls with traditional casings & jambs, but no allowance to modify for aluminium windows, am I missing something? Bay Window, Plan.pdf
  9. Anyone out there who can shed some light on my paving issue?
  10. Chopsaw, been there done that as suggested, shifted Hue left and right accentuating green and red hues, pavings remain as is, grey in PBR beige in SR
  11. Chopsaw, The ceilings are white, that was the first thing I checked. The background is one of the CA "Backdrops" I have used, I did change this to white also, but nothing changed and at the moment the "Backdrop" is Öpen Fields", that is why there is a bright green colouring reflected on to the stainless steel. The back and left hand sides of the Alfresco are open so there is plenty of natural light coming in.
  12. Having issues with different material\colours between Standard and PB Renders. After setting the material and colour tones to an Alfresco BBQ area, found that I had two different colours to the brick pavings, ie in STANDARD RENDER the pavings are a cream colour, which is required, but in PBR the pavings are grey. Went to my User Group yesterday and no luck with them, see attached images of both renders, couldn't save the CA file as it's too large.
  13. Chopsaw, No probs, all good as it worked the second attempt, see attached, must of done something different this time. I use Twinmotion to add/enhance fixtures and landscaping. Regards Neil.
  14. The original question was about the issue of exporting the materials/textures into Twinmotion and the fact that I had done this, but only as a CA file. When importing any image into TM, similar to CA, the programme identifies that some finishes are missing and asks for the file holding the missing materials/Textures. Just finished a major reno and imported the project into TM and enhanced a lot of the landscaping with TM, with great effects, all of the original CA finishes were able to be imported into TM, via a separate folder which stored all finishes, I as
  15. Chopsaw, I exported the original image while in 3D render mode, this was hi-lighted to me on Saturday. I have folders showing textures/materials on other projects, these must have been generated by CA during exportation!!!!, but not sure. Basically the Twinmotion image is all white with only one timber trim colour showing. I re-imported the Twinmotion ( dae.) back into CA, some additional colours came back with it, but no textures. Does this help.
