Four choices, four different styles. Which closet designed and rendered in Envisioneer would you want?January 9, 2021 at 12:19 pm #13472jkzimmParticipant
All the lighting in the renders is very good.
Could you comment on some settings used to get such even lighting and NO hotspot on the ceiling Is physically accurate rendering checked in each ?
All the layouts are well done and luxurious closets are nice, I choose #2 because I’d rather put the sq footage elsewhere in a house.
Thanks for doing these Polls, they show that Envisioneer is capable of great results.

I put my pick in this morning but did not take the time to comment.
And i picked #2 because it’s much more homey the others look like someone way above my class.:) (Not that they aren’t great renders though because they are, makes me think and realize i gotta do more homework yet.)
And yes that caught my eye to, I was going to comment on it but Jack beat me. Notice how the light is the brightest all the way down and not overpowering. Mine happen to look something like a man that’s out in the field spotting deer.
And i was also wondering where the cabinets come from in render one. I have a job coming up I’d like to use something like that in it (is it just your regular kitchen cabinets that are modified?)

I tested with v15 using Recessed lights that by default have the ‘bulb’ Z setting down 2 3/8″. In the past I had it lower.
The test turned out exactly like the posted renders, no ceiling hotspot. Very nice ‘soft’ light cast on walls (if far enough away)
Using Physically Accurate Lighting or having it off made little difference in the light results. The room is simple and all test I did with lights / sun brightness, cloudy or sunny / or custom, shine on floor or not…. all were with in 45 seconds to finish of each other.
I used to use Recessed lights all the time, I think I’m going back to them.

Lighting is my Achilles’s Heel…I can see I am going to have to go back to square 1 with can lights. I use them a lot and I can see I’ve re-invented a square wheel in how I light them apparently.
I picked #2 because it has clothes in it and so looks like a closet. I really like the work in #1 but it’s more wine celler-ey than wardrobe-yJanuary 11, 2021 at 7:51 am #13496rsmithcParticipant
My pick for January poll on closet would be 2.January 11, 2021 at 10:16 am #13500
The default light fixture settings were used in the renderings. Some of the renderings have tray ceilings above the cabinets, so there is no open space above for a dark shadow to be left.
The recessed light 1 or 2 was used, and when placed close to a wall it casts that soft shadow by default. To avoid hotspots, you can reduced the brightness percentage in the lighting properties on the lights tab. You can rotate the angle the light is pointing towards to brighten dark areas on the lights tab.
Also if you want to brighten an area without the fixture showing, turn off the 3D content display under properties>basic>imported element>display>3D tab>close eyes.
“Use Physically accurate lighting” was not check in scene properties, and an overcast sky is used in scenes with a window.
The cabinets are all from the interiors tab. They are stacked lower, upper and/or pantries elements. You can change the leaf of the door to get the render 1 look by going to cabinet properties>leaf tab>type>panel 3>apply to door.
There are new blocks available for walk in closet accessories on our BIM catalogs page to download.
Thanks for voting!

I do believe it was added to the wish list, and that they have been working on it.
Here is a BIM file with 2 LED strip lights that can be used.

Not sure why this is happening. when i try importing it this pops up.
And i got the latest version 15 so not sure why it’s happening.

Did you go FILE – IMPORT – IMPORT BIM TO CATALOGUE?
You need to extract the bim file from the zip first . . .
MervJanuary 12, 2021 at 7:52 pm #13510
Did you already do the latest V15 C2 patch?
-LCJanuary 12, 2021 at 8:37 pm #13511
Hello Merv, Yes i did extract it. And yes i did import it exactly like that.
And no Louisa i was very busy and did not have time to install the patch yet. Will try that soon as i can.
ConradJanuary 12, 2021 at 8:38 pm #13512
Just curious did it work for you?

You might as well throw your king sized bed in all of them except the 2nd one. What a waste of space and natural resources/building materials. I wouldn’t even take a job where they wanted a closet that big, I would be too busy laughing at them and walking away. Don’t care how much money a person makes, some things are just beyond their comprehension.
