I have this guitar in a lighted cabinet. There are some external lights also. I realize I'm working with an image and that may be part of the problem. It's the only thing I can think of that's…Continue

Material Edit in Render window

I'm a little confused about the ability to edit a material within the render window. I had found that a material I was using was too reflective after seeing the initial passes. I'm given the option…Continue

"Thanks Al, I re-downloaded the model I was using from the Warehouse . This time I carefully selected the part of the component that would become the light and it seems to be working. I'm trying to refine it to get better results now but I…"

"When you create a lamp from an object, the color is a color it finds in the object. For some geometry we wind up creating too many individual lights. We try to combine adjacent Sketchup faces into a single light, but sometimes this fails because of…"

"OK. No rush but I wanted you to know that I selected Mirror material in sketch up and applied that. It was a silver grayish color in sketch up and only became black after rendering."

"Yes, you are going to get much better reflections if you can place the guitar image on a curved surface. Here are two renderings I made of a guitar on the 3D warehouse, which, at least, had a beveled edge. I made the surface itself a mirror for…"

"Maybe it's because it's an image on a flat face, it doesn't reflect any light sources on any curved surfaces.  The only light source it could reflect would be one that could be seen in a direct bounce on the flat surface."

Trying to get more reflectance to show this as a lacquered wood surface

I have this guitar in a lighted cabinet. There are some external lights also. I realize I'm working with an image and that may be part of the problem. It's the only thing I can think of that's keeping the surface from looking as it should. I have the reflectance set high and in the advanced dialog, the image it shows good reflectance. If it is using the image that's causing the problem, is there a workaround? It's hurting the realism of the render. (there were about 300 passes completed for…See More
