Hi everybody :
So far........ArielVision seems to be my choice. It seems easy enough to use. I just need help in knowing how to use the settings. And, I did a "test run" with one of my models. It rendered okay. But, the model seemed to be "up in the air". Rather than on the ground, with a background from MY PICTURES folder. Is there a PDF Help file for ArielVision ?
ArielVision has a lot of good features for basic rendering.
IRender nXt has about 40 more features which you may need someday. But they both use the same rendering engine - and both produce high quality renderings.
We can help you with problems you have. All the help is on line.
for instance you can search Google for: ArielVision backgrounds
and find this page:
We appreciate you questions. It makes it easier for us to add value to the forums and to improve the documentation.
Without seeing any images yet, here is something you can try:
Turn on the SketchUp ground plane, and then adjust your model or the background image so that the ground plane in the image matches the ground plane in the rendering.
We don't have have an automatic way to adjust the SketchUp view (and the rendering view) to match the view in your ground plane.
You should start here for links to the ArielVision documentation:
