  5. Not being overly cocky but I'm sure I could figure this out. But sadly, I already spend my own money in San Diego so there's not much motivation. The lunch sounds tempting though.
  6. I'm guessing you have your default floor system setup to 4" slab concrete instead of 11 7/8 framing. I'm guessing that's why the space between the first and second floor is only about 4". That's where I would look.
  7. For this particular view, I would use a floor camera from the outside instead of a perspective full overview camera. And then use the raytrace tool. Should be pretty simple. Maybe try changing the background image to one with some dusk lighting and then render it with a similar lighting. I'm just thinking out loud now.
  8. Couple things, I'm not sure why the pdf would be importing too large. The resolution thing is a fair guess, as pretty much everything in Chief is 72dpi. I was going to address the method of rescaling the plan though. The dragging from corners can be very annoying. I would use the transform replicate tool. With the pdf selected, it's like the 6th tool over from the left in the bottom toolbar. You'll have to do a little bit of math here as you will be finding the proper scale of the pdf. 1) Find a nice even measurement on your pdf. Say you have a wall that is 8' or 10' called out. 2) Now using y
  9. Random, anyone have a nice grass texture they're happy with. I've been using the same one for a while now and I'm thinking I'm not completely happy with it. Like something that's maybe a little more realistic.
  10. To be honest, if it's really an important wall (meaning it's one the homeowner will SEE) I often will just get lazy and just draw a material region over the effected wall in elevation/cross section view, like 1/16" inch thick. A lot of time it's just faster than actually taking the time to figure out what the hell I did that made the wall get messed up in the first place.
  11. Does anyone have a good source of where to find good images of people to import? For example: man sitting using a laptop, woman sitting reading a book and drinking coffee, etc.
  12. Something else to consider is that Dropbox has limited storage before you get into some $$$. I've been using Dropbox for a few years now and it works well for organizaing my files. I generally have three folders per job file. Plans & Layouts, Renderings, Photos. I also have a general folder for Custom Textures. The photos in particular can chew threw the free GB or 2 that Dropbox gives you when you sign up. Then you start paying yearly fees. The first one's not that bad but when you get to needing over 100 GB or so (I think, I'm not sure exactly what it is) you get into the large business
