Self Glow Items

Do items that you want to emanate light need to be a Sketchup 'group', or can you just do 'faces'? I'm struggling trying to get 'flames' for fire to look like they are lit. Everything I try to turn…Continue

Awhile ago (last summer maybe?), the rendering output would be a small image on the screen when I selected 'small', a little larger when I selected ' medium', and so on. Now when I do a…Continue

Self Glow Items

Do items that you want to emanate light need to be a Sketchup 'group', or can you just do 'faces'? I'm struggling trying to get 'flames' for fire to look like they are lit. Everything I try to turn into a light is real bright. You have a step by step tutorial on the website that has a fire place in the pool room, but the 'self-glow' part is a little different than the version I am working with. Is there a video tutorial of the 'pool house' one?See More

"The closest thing we have is our Linear Lighting choice, to use for strip lighting to distribute the light more evenly. if you need something that would show the individual LED lights, you would have to make one from scratch."

"That's the toolbar in SketchUp. That button isn't located there. I was referring to the toolbar in the "rendering window", that appears once you start rendering."

Small Rendering Images

Awhile ago (last summer maybe?), the rendering output would be a small image on the screen when I selected 'small', a little larger when I selected ' medium', and so on. Now when I do a rendering, all settings result in a full screen image with only the resolution being affected by 'small', 'medium', 'large', etc.When did this change, or am I doing something wrong?Thanks, PhilSee More

"My laptop fan sometimes gets really loud when rendering also, but I've had the computer overheat.   IRender nXt just uses the CPU, so the computer has to try to keep it cool during processing. It might help keep things cool if you set…"

Computer Equipment Question

My computer fan’s speed increases when I start a rendering. About halfway through the rendering however, it increases dramatically to the point that it is so loud I feel like it is overloading the system to the point that I cancel out of the rendering. I’m on an HP system with a 2.50 GHz Intel Quad Core CPU with 8G ram. Is the issue purely related to the processor?See More

Rich Hart replied to Phil's discussion HDRi Image Renderings
