Picture turn pink in ray-trace


Recommended Posts

I have a two walls in my living-room I have put some art on. When I raytrace one picture turns pink.


I have tried several formats, compared it to pictures NOT turning pink and made sure they are the same, but to no avail. So my guess it has something to do with size, but all the changes I've made has resulted in nothing.


I use X11.


Hope anyone can help me out.

Purple is the color that shows up when Chief can't follow the file path for the material texture.  It may be on a drive or file location that the program is having difficulty with.


Take a read through some of the previous postings and links on "Purple Raytraces" and see if anything applies to you.



It may also be a software bug so no harm is contacting tech support about it if does not seem like it was something you did wrong.

      Can you add our own photos to picture frames on room planner on a mobile iPad or phone? If possible, can you explain how, and if photos can be added, it will be much easier. Thanks

      I am working on a project that has a large quantity of  silver metallic drape. I have been experimenting with different material typed and properties to get the most realistic reflective metallic look but so far I have not found a really good option. I tried using metallic or reflective material typed but I get alot of speckling and would need to add a lot of extra lighting which really slows down the Ray-Trace.
      I have attached the material sample. Anyone have any suggestions?

      Ric Howe started a thread long ago encouraging others to share their Chief Architect creations (usually rendering scenes).
      I wanted to help continue this tradition by recreating the thread here, but with a twist...
