lighting

Hi Again - newbiw question alert!
All of my renderings using Advanced Photo plug in look very dim and dull.
Is there a way to increase the standard ceiling light brightness or do you just add loads of lamps?

Thanks!!

Re: lighting

Crafty360,

Yes, there is.

And if you provide more info*, we might be able to explain you "how".
Of course you could start by searching the forum? But maybe that's just a silly remark.
Or else you could read the plug-in manual? Neah.. silly remark too!

Re: lighting

Crafty360,

Well, there's a documentation page... and on that page there's a lot of interesting info.... On that page you might want to check out the Plug-in Tutorial... It should cover most questions on plug-ins.

If it doesn't, please, come back. I wrote the tutorial myself, and will gladly answer any question the tutorial doesn't cover, so that he next version will be better.

Hans

Re: lighting

Hi again Crafty.. lol.. Don't mind the sometimes tongue in cheek answers as there can be alot of repeat questions from people just starting to use the software. smile Sometimes it is best also to search through the older threads as many had the same question... I know because I asked this same question when I first started using SH3D myself.

When you downloaded Advanced Rendering, you should have gotten light bulbs in your furniture list. Models of the lamps don't produce light by themselves, you have to add light bulbs.

You also have to "turn on" the light bulbs by rotating them with the angle selector in the Modify Furniture window. The angle of the bulb is the power of it's light... say you have a bulb turned to a 45 degree angle, that means the bulb is putting out 45% of it's light.

And yes, you do have to add many light bulbs to a room usually, here is my thread on this same question, it might give you more answers in addition to the tutorials. http://www.sweethome3d.com/support/forum/viewthread_thread,1656#6842

Re: lighting

No problem Crafty. db4tech (the poster who made the lights, and some of the improvements to the renderer) has made many posts about the lights and photorealistic renders, you might want to search out his posts if you feel like alot of reading.. biggrin He makes many good suggestions. And if you run into terms you don't understand, just come back to this thread and ask... smile


And aww shucks, Thank you very much Hans... blushing I just remember when I was new to this software, and how much you, db4tech, and puybaret ( and likely wanted to pull out your hair ) helped me, so I hope to return that favor by helping others...

Re: lighting

I wonder if it would be good to make a section right on top that says something along the lines of INTRODUCTION : READ FIRST for the new users to this forum? I guess that would be a puybaret question... but it might be useful to have all the tutorials and user guides linked to an introduction thread. That way if someone is new, they see the links to the information first thing.
