Started this discussion. Last reply by William Allison Aug 20, 2012. 2 Replies

I am finally getting around to installing Rhino 5. I currently run R4 with Nxt.Do I need to install Nxt as a 64-bit system? And will it then run alongside the 32-bit version that is operating with R4?Continue

I find getting renders to accurately represent the material colours difficult. Blacks and greys in particular seem to change depending on the angle of the sun etc.Any suggestionsContinue

I've downloaded a material from RhinoJungle (Teak Decking... for boats) but I'm unsure as to how to save it to the materials file. I managed to find how to access the ProgramData file, which was…Continue

Is there a way to "trim" the Ground Plane? I am making a render of a boat that has an area in the stern that is lower than the ground plane. As a result it looks flooded! Any suggestions?…Continue

"Here's a quick render (100 passes!) done mostly using Scott's most recent settings... looks pretty good all in all :-)  though the path tracer set up seems to result in a slightly fuzzier final product  "

"Thanks Scott I'll have a play with that for a while. Of course, your render is shown zoomed in... in the case of a yacht render, it would need to be a much wider 'shot', so the object that is being lit will need to be much larger…"

"Thanks Scott. You were definitely right about it taking some time... I assume the render process with it set at Path Tracer is slower and requires a lot more passes before anything sensible appears Would you mind posting the model for this latest…"

"Thanks Scott. Yes - I had to re-install Nxt after R5 in order to get it to 'load'. All running sweetly now.... :-)"

"NXT will install for both Rhino 4 and Rhino 5, both 32 and 64 bit.  Normally I would re-install NXT after installing Rhino 5.  This will update Rhino 5 to run with NXT."

Scott Davidson replied to William Allison's discussion Accurate Colours
"The dark light issues are due to the drastic difference between the bright side of the boat and the dark side of the boat.  Also, the lack of indirect light is accentuating the problem. I might try Studio light setup with…"
