Ceiling shows up as black when ray traced

Recommended Posts

I am using X9. I just did a ray trace on a bedroom and the ceiling is coming out black

even though the color of the ceiling is an off white. There must be a setting I did not

set correctly.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Try unchecking “Make Ceilings Black In Ray Trace Views”.  If that doesn’t work try giving the fine people here a little more to work with...a Backup File, a plan file, a screenshot...ANYTHING.

Try adding one or two 3D point lights to get some light onto the ceiling surface. The light from those recessed fixtures will only cast downward and as such they will have little or no lighting effect on the ceiling.
