Colors look incorrect on wall

Recommended Posts

Need help with settings of Ray Trace.

 

On the attached image, I have done quick mode 10 passes. Color of the wall given is white, but in rendered image it looks grey (doesn't look pure white). Also any other setting recommendations that can improve result.

 

I am also attaching settings used for ray trace.

 

Thanks

Or...making the White wall material Emissive should do the trick.

But be aware that what you want to achieve is really "faking" it.

In the real world, the white walls probably wouldn't appear white.

Note - setttings for standard render and Ray Traces will probably be different.  You just have to fuss to get what you want.

      HI All
      I am ray tracing a scene with a 3D plant (from sketchup) and the shadows are showing squares rather than the actual shadow of the plant (1 pass image shown below).  I have purposely moved the sun around to cast shadows to the back of the image as I have found manually manipulating the sun gives much better RTs than using natural sun angles (at least for me).  I attach the skp file and what the plant looks like in the object info window of CA.  Any ideas how to get rid of this square shadow?  I uncheck the ray casted shadows in camera tool pre-ray trace, and it looks better but still ray traces with the square shadow.
      Thanks in advance,
      melissa

      Hello!
       
      I'm hoping that someone can help me out here. I frequently use the same materials and I was wondering if there is any way to change the default textures/ colors so that every new project starts off the same. For example: on exterior walls CA defaults to blue lap siding; bathrooms and kitchen default to a cream tile; walls, windows, and doors default to Brite paint; etc.
       
      I'd like to change these so that I can save myself time. Can someone explain how to do that, please? 
       
      Thank you!

      Hi All, I am trying to achieve a ray trace with a tree in the foreground that sort of frames the picture. Attached is an example of my goal- I did not create the attached jpg. I am getting close by placing a tree close to the camera but mostly out of view, but every tree I have tried is blurry. See the saved camera in the attached file. Then I place another big tree closer to the house to create a shadow on the house/driveway. I will crop that tree out of the final picture. Are there any trees CA has that you recommend for close-up high resolution (5500x3200 pixels) ray trace? I found a thread from the old Chief Talk where they had a similar problem and Larry Kumpost  suggested a high res tree, but I don't know where to find one. Here is the old thread http://www.chieftalk.com/showthread.php?34289-Exterior-Critique&highlight=trees+foreground. Thank you in advance!

      Can anybody tell me why I get ray traces that are really grainy?  I can't find a topic on this.  I am using X9 on a mac.

      When doing a Ray Trace the cabinets seem to be lit from the inside.
      There were no lights added to these cabinets and it seems to be happening every time.
