I am new to Chief, I am using X-8.

 

I have added a Jenn-Air refrigerator to a kitchen remodel I am working on.

The finish materials under fixture specifications is stainless steel brushed.

 

After 310 passes in Ray Trace the refrigerator is showing up black. I have added

3 light sources in front of the refrigerator and it still comes out black.

 

How do I get the finish to show up looking like a stainless steel finish?

 

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Mike,

 

Not sure if this will help but, change material to "Stainless Steel" as found in "Bonus catalogs" - Kitchen styles - international contemporary - materials - stainless steel.

Thanks Doug. I can not find a category called Kitchen Styles in the bonus catalog. I did change the material to stainless steel polished which is under the core catalog.

I have added several more light sources in front of the refrigerator to see if that helped. It definitely made the surface of the refrigerator much lighter where the lights are hitting it.

The rest of the surface is still black.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

The metals don't seem to have a JPG texture associated with them, and so render black. I suggest downloading the bonus catalog called Metal Materials, and trying one of those.

      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!

      Can anybody tell me why I get ray traces that are really grainy?  I can't find a topic on this.  I am using X9 on a mac.

      When doing a Ray Trace the cabinets seem to be lit from the inside.
      There were no lights added to these cabinets and it seems to be happening every time.

      How do I get rid of halos/glare that is appearing at crown molding, around door ways, cabinets, etc. in ray trace view? Do I need to change the default for interior ambient light?
