I hope everybody is enjoying this year that’s ending.
I’d like making a question before 2023 comes. Is there a way to make some kind of “up holes” in a wall in order to set some puck lights up too?
First, I tried with a wall niche but it’s too thin. I don’t know if I’ll have to use a pony wall or other but I have never worked with them so I’m feeling a bit lost. Any idea?
Many thanks and Happy New Year!
I am fairly new to Chief & even more so to ray tracing. I am attaching a standard rendering (1), a physically based (ray trace) (2), and two CPU ray traces ( one with 1 hour/38 passes, the second with 3 hours). It appears to have a foggy haze over the image. Once you zoom into the image, it appears to be grainy also. How can I brighten and sharpen these images?
I have experience with Twin Motion, Photoshop, Revit, etc. but I have seen some wonderful renders out of Chief. I would love to get there. Any tips?
I'm having a problem getting a deck to remain when I try to contain it under a roof. The function of the roofs to the covered deck are to make a covered walkway to the covered deck. I didn't know where to begin searching for this issue so I'm posting this.
The attached screenshot shows where I'm able to get the roof and deck to look right (4'-1") and where the deck room conflicts with the roof (4'-0"). Ideally, I would make these both 4'-0". When I try to adjust the deck rail in or out from the back of the house (shown at 4'-0") the deck disappears.
I have attached the .pln file. Any advise is appreciated.
I have been watching the video tutorials on exterior rendering primarily the lighting features and effects . Can anyone tell me about PARALLEL lighting placed facing the buildings exterior??? I can't locate anywhere. Cad arrow does not convert ...also where do I find the lighting for the interior rooms that show a yellow glow . I've tried the electrical but only see the auto LGIHT for ceiling which is a light fixture not a glow.
Its probably so easy but for the life of me I can't figure it out. My exterior renders are not bad but would be more affective with the features available in said video
"Roof Beams Appear as Solid Timbers not I-Beams as Preferred."
I have a small insignificant detail problem that I wish to resolve and wonder if anyone has a Tip or Trick to fixing the fact that my Steel I Beams show up perfectly in my Posts and Deck patio beams but not in my roof beams.
I have changed all of my defaults to I Beams in my settings to no avail, just curious if this a detail I will have to learn to live with or a glitch in Chief?
Also I would like my I beams to show in the interior walls and imagine in order for this to happen I will need to create a niche and paint it black steel? Correct?
Please see attached image.
Thank you in advance,
