We use Irender with Sketchup as a rendering software for showing lighting effects. I was wondering if there was a way to make coloured lighting show on black materials. For example, in the model i'm…Continue

"Would you like to rotate the sun while in SketchUp or in the Batch Renderer?The function I am would let you say "Rotate sun by x degrees" while still in SketchUp, and you would see the SketchUp shadows move by that number of degrees.

Does that work at all?
We would then have to rotate the model and choose a time of day for this to work. If you pick June 21, and rotate the model, you can…"

I meant asva friend on this site. I can't seem to find a way to a friend except by using an email. I'm just trying to get connected with some people on this site. That's all. I did check out sketchucation mag and was reading the interviews of the sketch related companies. Is that the type of article you guys will be doing with them?
I was involved with Beta testing the early versions of nxt for Revit, but I got too busy to stay involved, and I thought this product was released for production. I would like to purchase a licence, but it seems like there are still major issues that would prevent me from being able to use this for my projects.
1. I thought nxt loaded the assigned materials from the Revit material library, but in the trial version that I just downloaded and installed most of the materials were wrong.
2. I have not tried it but I saw that the decals are still not working
3. And I also noticed that RCP objects are still not working.
I would love to beta test any new versions you are developing. I am currently taking time off to do research and development, and I have time for this now.
