Hello I am trying to render substrates with layers of clear plastics or glass but when i use the flex feature the bending creates lots of refractions that make the image really bad. Is there a way of removing this effects? I tried changing all the parameters on the materials and lighting but nothing really changes it. The flex is on the top right and down left corner.

Its been a while since there was a thread in here for people to post renders they have created in PhotoView360. Thought I would start one. Let's see some of your work. Here is one I did a couple years back.

Hello, is it possible to download photoview 360 appearances, other than the preloaded ones ? I am running SW 2018 and I read on forums about downloading lxo files but it seems it is not available any more. SolidworksPhotoview 360

Check out HTML360. See some of the the examples and I think you'll agree that these interactive turntables are extra yummy when you render the output with html360. www.whitehalldigital.com/html360.html SolidworksPhotoview 360

I'm a fan of PV360. (and all of the work from M.Banta et al) The attached is a shot of why. The attached took several mouse clicks and almost a minute of labor. Do I miss photoworks? not often.

I have finally been able to install SolidWorks 2013 on my render farm this weekend. Starting to test some of the new network rendering capabilities. Here is what 11 machines (168 threads) working on a large format, single frame render looks like. Sweet......

Hey y'all, modo FINALLY has 3D Connexion mouse support - well they had it on 601 release but it wasn't very good. Now on SP1, they got it right. If you use modo AND have a 3D connexion mouse, check out this tutorial I did on Lux TV discussing how to set it up. http://www.luxology.com/tv/training/view.aspx?id=651 Paul SolidworksPhotoview 360

Guys... I was recently featured in an article on freelancing in 3D Artist magazine. There is some cool stuff in the mag and some tips for you if you are thinking about free lancing. Here is the link to an overview of this issue.

Hi Everyone, I think people appreciated the sneak peek of sp03 just before Early Visibility came out. Here's a brief video on some sp04 stuff coming your way any day now. Enjoy And don't forget to check out PhotoView Fridays which I host. I know it's been a while since the last on, but the new video is rendering now, and should be up very shortly.

Here is an HDR of the San Antonio Riverwalk. Do I need to lighten it up for use in SolidWorks? By how much, and how do I know that? How do I set the mid-range color?

Just a suggestion but It would be nice to have motion blur in PhotoView 360 animation. I am working on rendering a spinning fan blade iluminated by LEDs and I am having a hard time making it look realistic. Just a thought, thanks! SolidworksPhotoview 360

I tried to alter the render quality, and there is a prompt Subsurface Samples This only applies when Subsurface Amount and Scattering Distanceare nonzero. Does anyone know what this mean ? and more importantly, how can Irectify it ?
