    Room colors

    Thank you Eric for posting this example. I havent been able to edit the plan to post it as its very large. Yes this is exactly what Im talking about. My question is why isnt it a gradual shading darker vs a very stark difference in colors despite the same material? I understand that shadows can cause dark areas but not when they are so close and the lighting is even in all the areas. Are these the results to be expected in PBR's?

    Room colors

    Thanks for the input both of you. When I get a second I will delete everything so it will actually upload and keep all the items that matter on the plan. By the way Mike, I sent you a PM awhile back... its hard to see them on chieftalk sometimes haha...there definitely not text messages.

    Room colors

    I had a post about this before but couldnt find it in my followed content. This is an update. I had a room that in PBR the same paint and textures appear to be different although the same exact material. Several chiefers told me if I change room type it can affect the appearance of the material in PBR. So here in another PBR I have the same white baseboards yet at the arches in the other rooms the baseboards appear gray, it also changed the flooring color a bit too. So again, I changed all room types to the same living room and rechecked to ensure the white paint was the same and it is. Any ideas why this appears this way? I just moved the camera so I wouldnt take the picture of the discoloration but Im just trying to understand why it does this. Thanks!

    PDF cut off?

    Hi Greg, thanks for the reply. I was just trying to get a crisper image for my website because before chief started doing PDFs you had to export Jpeg and they werent very clear on the webpages. So now I have been taking each floor plan and export pdf and using the image there for the webpages. I havent had issues with all the plans just a few where the image gets cut off and doesnt properly display. So in this situation where some but not all arent working its hard to figure out what the culprit is. Is there another way then what Im doing to create a crisp floor plan images for use on websites?

    PDF cut off?

    Does anyone know why when I export to PDF the image isnt fully seen and it cuts off balconies and porches? I expanded the view in 2d in case I was scrolled in too far but it doesnt seem to make a difference. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Packaging Plans

    Thank you both for the clarification!

    Packaging Plans

    Can someone explain to me how export the entire plan with materials helps maintain all your textures? I just completed my first back up entire plan plus referenced files. When I opened it up on my desktop I looked into the file and nothing was familiar that was even used in the plan. It also didnt have any textures that were used widely in the plan like wood floors or kitchen cabinets. I then went back into the plan and purged any textures that werent used and backup entire plan again but the same unused textures were in there and yet no commonly used textures in there either?? Im puzzled how this helps save your plan should you get newer versions of chief that dont have the same textures if you dont even see them in the backed up plan file?? Thanks!

    Packaging Plans

    Does anyone know if the back up entire plan option #3 is for zipping option #1? Im thinking if the files become really large using option #1 thats the option for zipping? A bit unsure so I wanted to ask about it before starting this process. Thanks!

    Chief Library gone wild?

    Robert wow thanks for all the explanation... you should work at Chief in tech support that was so helpful. I will try that out. Thanks for including the picture it was easier to understand it all. Chief, glad you were able to see what was going on in the library. Yes, that would be great to adjust this for future catalog updates. Thanks!

    Chief Library gone wild?

    Robert.... thats right...duh I completely forgot the program doesnt grab the texture from the library its the directories. I will try and call tech support just to let them know about it. Does anyone happen to have the valley backdrop as a jpeg so I can add it to my library manually in the meantime?
