TV SCREEN IN RAYTRACE


Recommended Posts

I've placed an image on a large projector screen in my plan.  the room is fairly dark, and I was hoping that the image placed on the projector screen would be bright as in real life, but it isn't.  Is there a way to do this?  Thanks.

Yes you can adjust the material properties...   Make it General and then "Emissive"

 

It even works with concrete !

Thanks for he help, but it doesn't seem to make much difference.

 

It is a material you are using and not an image right ?   What level of Emissivity did you use and does it work in standard view ?

x12, emmisivity set at 50  image.thumb.png.5d579e042452487abe5ebc1c5f8571f0.png

Looks similar in Standard view. My problem with this is the edges bleed a lot of light. I made the screen about 1/8" thick to try and eliminate the glow but that does not work.

That looks like an oil painting Alan.  Did you try a TV with a fame around it ?

It is one of the t.v.'s from the library. I tried first with the screen material in the symbol but it glowed out even more. That is why I placed a polysolid in front of the screen and made it super thin.1420378428_Screenshot2021-06-18141816.thumb.jpg.c5a16e4fe3dcbf1aa0b738623409c9b3.jpg1155179232_Screenshot2021-06-18141747.thumb.jpg.e165f1979f3fe8f099a392f293845fb9.jpg
