Stone material hanging up on Raytrace (X6)

Recommended Posts

I didn't have any hang up with mine. Here are my settings and picture of the RT.

Sure enough, did the same thing you described. Seems to be beyond my scope of knowledge, hopefully someone will be able to step in and help.

This does not appear to be related to the stone materials.

I replaced all the stone materials I could find and reproduced the same problem.

 

My guess is there is something in the plan that is hanging up on caustics. You won't really see them in an outdoor scene anyway so no loss in quality if you turn them off for now.

I would do a backup entire plan and open a new support center ticket and include your system information as well.

I will Kirk.  The reason I suggested it was the stone, is because I raytraced this project, then added the stone and had the issue.  On another plan, I was able to sub a different stone and get it to work.  The Caustics come up when you run the wizard on high quality outside, so I have always left them there.

 

Thanks!

No worries. I have yet to reproduce any lock up using the default hight quality settings when using these materials except when I am in your plan. So the backup entire plan should ensure that we get all of the data in your file and the system info will help give us an idea of the environment we are dealing with.

I always use the cultured stone catalog and not having any problems, and they also have patterns included

I've not had any problem with a raytrace using stone.  I changed a grass texture to one I had found (seamless) and that seems to be the beginning of my problem. I didn't put two and two together until I read a few other posts. I have had to go into the settings and turn off caustics under photon mapping because the raytraces started hanging up at 91%.  Before I added that texture, I could run a raytrace with the above checked... I guess it was just to much to handle.

      Warm, sturdy, fire resistant materials common to a Tuscan home made this style an obvious choice for the Paradise Rises project. Stucco on the main house is accentuated with natural stone on the wrap-around porch and fireplace. Tile roofing is a bow on top.

      Hello! I'm using X7 Interiors as I specialize in kitchen and bath.  I recently bought a new iMac (specs below) hoping that Chief Architect would work better as it would suddenly quit with errors when I was running it on my 2013 MacBook Pro.  The random quitting still occurs (which is annoying, but that's not my question here); however, ray trace which, ironically, worked on my 2013 MacBook Pro will not even start on my 2017 iMac.  I receive the following error:
       
      /Users/autobuild/p4sync/dev/releases/17/chief/source/raytrace.cpp(619): Error #272032202
      "Unable to open ray tracing engine - ray tracing disabled for this session."

      I've already tried their suggestions... I made a simple plan and it still came up with the error.  Then I checked for updates in both Chief Architect and my system and they are up-to-date.
       
      I plan on upgrading in December to the newest Chief Architect assuming these problems will go away... but I'm scared that they won't.
       
      Any help or ideas would be appreciated! Thanks!

      I added a light source to the raytrace, but do not want it to show on the ceiling?

      Hi friends:
       
      I have done a ray-trace for about 17 hours or so for 35 passes, but I am getting light behind the chair arm, which I don't know why?
      Can any one help me to find out why I am getting this light behind the chair.
      Software is X10
       
      Thankyou
