I'm not seeing any bleeding issues. I opened your

plan but didn't see any saved interior camera views

so I just took a Full Camera view of the cabinets and

ran a High Quality Indoor Ray Trace. Can you post

the troublesome camera view or perhaps the problem

image and the settings you are using?

Already have a roof on it.  I posted the plan if anyone wants to take a look?

 

Thanks

Turn off Environment Light and set the Sun Light to zero.

Try setting the Ambient Occlusion Min=0, Max=3 and uncheck "Use Camera View Settings". Here's what I get with these settings. You can use the Image Properties settings to adjust contrast, intensity, etc.

Shouldn't have to do that though. BTW, I opened your plan in X9 and it looks fine without doing anything.

I am posting the pictures as they appear in my program.  Can you post a quick raytrace and final render with shadows created with your program?

Here is my raytrace with your settings.  Much better.  I will experiment with the image properties...

 

Thanks!

Pleased that those settings got things under control. The Image Properties settings I used on my posted pic are here below.

 

Contrast - 83

Intensity - 36

Softness - 0

Color Correction - 0

 

Brightness - 48

Contrast - 62

Saturation - 50

 

Here is one with some additional lights added in, things seem to be working as I would expect. Would need more work but at least heading in the right direction.

Mainwood59 - Was able to recreate the issue, pic below. When in the camera view and if in the Active Layer Display options the Roof Planes are turned off you will get this effect. If you turn the sun off then this effect will go away but will come back if you turn the sun back on. Check to make sure that the Roof Planes are turned on in the Layer Display options.

Graham, thanks for your help.  I really appreciate it.  Your raytrace with the added lighting looks fantastic.  How long did it take to generate, 30 mins or more?

      Hello! I'm using X7 Interiors as I specialize in kitchen and bath.  I recently bought a new iMac (specs below) hoping that Chief Architect would work better as it would suddenly quit with errors when I was running it on my 2013 MacBook Pro.  The random quitting still occurs (which is annoying, but that's not my question here); however, ray trace which, ironically, worked on my 2013 MacBook Pro will not even start on my 2017 iMac.  I receive the following error:
       
      /Users/autobuild/p4sync/dev/releases/17/chief/source/raytrace.cpp(619): Error #272032202
      "Unable to open ray tracing engine - ray tracing disabled for this session."

      I've already tried their suggestions... I made a simple plan and it still came up with the error.  Then I checked for updates in both Chief Architect and my system and they are up-to-date.
       
      I plan on upgrading in December to the newest Chief Architect assuming these problems will go away... but I'm scared that they won't.
       
      Any help or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!

      I added a light source to the raytrace, but do not want it to show on the ceiling?

      Hi friends:
       
      I have done a ray-trace for about 17 hours or so for 35 passes, but I am getting light behind the chair arm, which I don't know why?
      Can any one help me to find out why I am getting this light behind the chair.
      Software is X10
       
      Thankyou

      Good day all,
       
      I am using v10 on a MAC. I'm an intermediate user and don't use Ray Trace a TON. 'Doing my first set of traces is v10 and all my setting seem to be off. My ceilings are glowing, the lighting doesn't seem right. Blah blah blah. I have imported defaults from an older file that had my best settings.  I have a presentation this afternoon to sell this project anyone able to open this file and see what my deal is?? Oh and I can't figure out where to change my backdrop, either. Did it move?
       
      What am I missing? I'm sure it's simple.

      So simple I think question that I can't figure out, for example I split my 4k screen into two screens, in one 'screen' I have a ray trace scene ready, and let's say its 2000*1000 pixels, and I want to increase the pixel density, meaning make it a truly 4k image, but I don't want my scene view to expand?  I've tried to figure this out and in the ray trace window I would put in new values, but in the end the ray trace scene view would expand... not sure if I made sense...Basically let's say I want to ray trace the view of a table, and when I increase the pixels to 4k it ends up including the neighboring cabinet that wasn't in the original window. I don't want the field of view to expand, rather pack more pixels in the current camera view/active window.
       
      Any and all help much appreciated!
