    Hey Jack or Merv or anyone else who can help,

    Below is pic I’m wondering about, is there anyway to get the view out of the window clearer? It seems when I want to take a render out of the (ect. Gable Windows or Bay windows) and capture a certain view I do the render (no matter how high quality) and it’s still blurry, is that just going to happen or is it something I can do different.

    And Jack the question I have for you is how do you do a interior walkthrough with an envisioneer file in realtime I can’t see where i’m at and i’m flying through walls missing doorways by a foot I can’t find a way to turn off the roof to map out the path any help would be appreciated.   I like the videos cause they’re much clearer than envisioneer’s animations (hint to cadsoft is there any way you could improve the quality of your’s dramatically and also how about getting some of their plants???????)

    Thanks Conrad

    For the interior window shot…I take the render into photoshop and erase the content within the window, then overlay the render above a background photo image of whatever I want showing in the window…

    It would be a bit of work with the grid windows you have in your render…

    No idea on the walk-through as I don’t use the feature.

    Hi Conrad,

    I’ve been busy, just saw your post.

    I don’t know how you got image into Envisioneer…. but I take a photo of the site, import it in backgrounds. Then I make a tall wall, assign the image to the wall , resizing the image to fit the wall.

    If I set my glass window with no reflection, it comes out pretty good.

    In this case I used two walls, so when I made the image ‘wider’ it didn’t distort.

    <hr />

    I will double check on paths in Realtime, try to get back to you next week.

    Good morning Jack,

    Thank-You, that is just the tip I was looking for that will be much faster than having to go and photo shop it every time (not that it wouldn’t work i’m just not tech savy enough to do that) the way I was getting my backgrounds was setting it  in the scene properties but it was blowing it up that big it didn’t look good. thanks again and I love you’re pic to, it looks like you should sit at the table and have a cup of coffee. love you’re cathedral ceiling is that trusses or did you make those using the member tool?

    Hi Conrad / SDS,

    This screen shot shows the wall used to hold the image and settings used. It is MUCH larger than the house / in this case more of a get away ‘cabin’ next to the main house.

    So, it is import you have a high quality image to start with.  I used a real camera for the cornfield / woods photo used. This was a preliminary using only one wall, but it distorted the image, the final had two walls and the same image assigned to each. Then the image was shifted on one to blend with the other. It is off to the left where the view isn’t as critical.

    Oh, don’t forget to move the Sun. A high wall can cast a long shadow. You must also adjust brightness of the image once imported to get it right.

    Jack

    Conrad,

    I have Realtime Landscape Architect, and when I click on a node and then click edit, I not only have tons of options like height / direction / speed fps…. but a preview window.

    The preview window lets me see my point of view and the camera path line.

    I had a job to layout a church parking lot, which lead to designing a portico, which lead to redesigning the new entry. That of course lead to a greeting hall, raised altar , large screen tv and new room layouts along the way.

    The whole of the work is done in Envisioneer. Everything. The trees / plants , people , signage, lighting is done in Realtime.

    I put this on my Vimeo website because it has better quality and less restrictions when using music. I tried it on my YouTube site but they said I couldn’t use Willy Nelson song. I said he lives next door and said it was OK… but they didn’t believe me. 🙂

    Have a look and see how I even walk around posts.

    Good Afternoon Jack,

    Thank-you VERY much for the tips you shared with me I really appreciate it. and  I use envisioneer for everything to, except the trees and shrubs that move. that church video is just downright amazing if I can do it like that someday I will be downright tickled. i’m busy right and did not get a chance to play with it yet but will first chance I get, hopefully next wk. as I have a house I would like to do it with.

    And WOW you must have some famous neighbors:)

    thanks again

    Hi Conrad,

    …but I take a photo of the site, import it in backgrounds.

    Hi Jack, could you clarify the above? I can’t seem to find where it allows you to import a file into the library

    Thanks

    Good Morning SDS,

    select you’re materials and paintbrush> go to landscape backgrounds> right click select add material> then select the pic beside the word texture which will pop up an other box and then select select,(see pic beelow) and that will take you to you’re folders on your computer then you just have to find the folder you saved it to. Sometimes you have to change the type of file you are looking for if you didn’t save it as a jpeg.

    Hey SDS,

    take a look at pic above, that i put in when i first asked about the pic with the background question. it was a very high quality render but the

    background was a blur i then did as Jack suggested and put walls in and did a lower quality render and WOW does it ever pop out like

    he said it would. (pic attached) or maybe you won’t think so but for me i thought it did, not just a little but a lot to the render.

    That does look better than the original, I’m trying to apply this idea to exterior render backgrounds…I’ll post a pic of the results when I get there.
