  1. I've sended you a mail. Best regards.
  2. I have a tree with leaves using UV maps. The tree is seen mostly in reflection on a glass curtain wall and inox steel parts. I use clipping maps end/or transparency maps with alpha channel to cut the leaves out of their supporting square polygons. If you can't see the supporting polygons on direct view - one can see theses square polygons in the reflected parts of the images... Any idea how to avoid having squares instead of leaves in the reflected parts of the image ? Best regards.... waiting for v10 (sounds like Godot !)
  3. Renderama "bounces" in the dock few seconds ... and won't start. Mainly with MACOS10.14 - but also on 10.12 ! Seems to work with 10.13 ... (I have 5 iMacs in my office) - All computers with DHCP+Manual address. - No Wifi - no bluetooth - all Ethernet connection.
  4. Hello Tomas, Sorry for not replying last time, quite busy in fact. I've send you an email for help... Best regards
  5. Hello Tomas, After I clicked on your "profile / send message" I couldn't send a private message : Tomas Egger cannot receive messages. ... I'm probably doing the wrong thing ?
  6. Hi ! Last time I used Renderama this year it worked fine. I use mostly 27" iMac (all updates forbidden - so no updating since last time) with OSX from 10.11 to 10.14 Now it won't start on 3 Macs out of 5... It bounces in the dock and then ... nothing (no window, no app launched) The only thing I've done since is installing Archicad 22 on this 3 Macs. On the 2 other Macs Renderama tells me : "file not found" when starting to download file to render - but they haven't got Archicad 22 installed... The master is an old MacPro2012-2013 running OSX 10.10 Any Idea ? ... I guess it's time for EIAS v10 update (getting long !)
  7. You should try Archicad... works well for architectural work ! You can have a look a WWW.LNAMEL.COM to see our work - all models from archicad (with homemade parametric objects) + some extra made with sketchup (grass is made with fur tool and added separately in EIAS). All rendering is EIAS. Even the older one starting in 1998...
  8. We've just started to put online our new web/blog website. We are an architecture office in France, and been using EIAS since v2.7 ... always doing our own renderings (since we started to do rendering for the other architects when w graduated) You can have a look, there's many renderings alongside with photos of our projects (it's in french ....) - it's in chronologic order ... so renderings are made with corresponding EIAS release... LNAMEL Best regards !
  9. If you have multicore mac, use renderama to use 2 or more processors ... 2Gb Ram per processor is fine, so if you have 6Gb, use 3 processors ... etc... (But don't use renderama with clows and depth of field layer shader)
  10. The stripped lines in the ceiling in the second image seems to come from glow using stripped rendering (using renderama ...) Rvlna
  11. yes ... no difference at all. I'm using quadratic dropoff as well ... may be it works without dropoff ? Need more try
  12. First time i'm using it : The "enable" + distance shadow dropoff (raytrace shadow - Radial light) doesn't seems to fade the shadows in the distance ... Maybe i'm wrong and the purpose of this option is different ? Animator Manual is not clear enough on that subject... Thanks for a little help. Rv
  13. ... And I need to have a set for the 2 objects/group in case of background objects ... Thank you very much ! ... anyway I'm wondering what the "world coordinate" tick means in the texture window ?
  14. I want to have one texture (only one) - projected onto 2 different groups/objects. I need the texture to be set from the same X,Y,Z world coordinates. You can see on the picture an example : I have a circle texture projected on 2 different groups/objects (spherical texturing) from the same point. If you were at the center, you will see a perfect circle - kind of VARINI effect (for those who don't know him he's a swiss artist ... just google him). When I try to do it using EIAS - even with the "world coordinate" tick on - when I Copy / Paste the texture from one group to another - it seems as if the texture was moved according to the size of the object ? Am I doing something wrong ? This should be possible ?
