color renderings


Recommended Posts

Because Vector Views use the Colour under Pattern in the Material definition and Standard Views Use the Texture (picture) on the Texture tab in the Material Definition , which you can view easily with the Rainbow Tool , usually in the top RH Corner of your Toolbar in any Camera View.

You can get the same color for both the Texture (standard view) and the Pattern (vector view) by using the Material Color...Blend with Texture option in the Define Material dbx...Texture panel.

Blend With Texture applies a selected color to both the Texture and the Pattern.

Or you can select Set Using Texture which will color the Pattern based on the color of the Texture.

But one is still a pattern and one is still a texture - ie, generally, by default, you can't show a texture in a vector view and you cant show a pattern in a standard view.


Vector view on left, render view on right.

      I'm hoping that someone can help me out here. I frequently use the same materials and I was wondering if there is any way to change the default textures/ colors so that every new project starts off the same. For example: on exterior walls CA defaults to blue lap siding; bathrooms and kitchen default to a cream tile; walls, windows, and doors default to Brite paint; etc.
      I'd like to change these so that I can save myself time. Can someone explain how to do that, please? 
      Thank you!

      I am having major problems with the colors on both my screen AND printing.  I am using CA x10 Interiors and am trying to utilize the colors from Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore catalogs in my designs.  However, the colors on screen and when I print look nothing like the actual colors.  Additionally, when I print the 3d elevations, the images are too dark, so I have to export them and then open and adjust in Photoshop.  I have a Dell P2717H (DP) monitor and it has been calibrated for color, screen resolution is 1920x1080.  Operating system is Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit, video card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX745 with 4095MB memory.  It isn't just some plans, it is all plans.  Any help would be appreciated!!!!

      Has anyone figured out how to create glass? 
      I am trying to construct a very minimal shower, but I don't see any glass color options, or glass pieces. 
      Likewise, I do not see any non framed mirrors, am I nuts? 
      If anyone has a way to get frames off of things, color something glass, or finds a minimal mirror, please let me know!

      Drywalled doorway openings - I cannot change the opening to the same color as the walls??? See attached.  I've changed the wall materials to all drywall and painted the same wall color.  I'm at a loss on how to solve this problem?
