Some years ago, (please don't ask!), I could apply my own photo to a SW appearance, and the "coupon" could be flipped horizontally and vertically as it was stepped out in x and y.... but when I try it now with SW 2018 and PView 360, it just flips the original coupon in-place, which doesn't look very nice for this appearance...see attached... Am I doing something wrong ?... am I missing a checkbox somewhere...?

I am in the process of doing multiple animation renders in photoview. Each time I change the scene to my custom scene I have to delete the floor appearance and disable shadows and reflections. I tried saving the scene with these settings removed but each time I apply the scene the floor comes back.

I am currently testing a Threadripper 1950X rig (Windows 10) and Solidworks 2014 and thought that it could be of benefit to share some results here. The rig is not optimised for speed due to a faulty RAM module, so it is running with a single 8 GB DDR-4 stick at stock speed and is still approximately 2.7X faster than my i7 4790K when rendering in Photoview 360! Very impressive and look at all those cores :-)

I recently updated to SW2018 SP3 from 2017. for rendering seals and o-rings I have always used Plastic - Soft Touch texture (looks more realistic than the Rubber texture. Since the update, I have been getting internal feature show-thru on external surfaces. Has anyone else seen this? I am currently trying other textures to replicate the look, but it would be nice if I didn't have to change all of my settings.

When I render, I always find the preview window pretty annoying. I can't find a way to get rid of it? My preview is often slower than the real render itself.

is there a way to turn off the "preview window"? i use "real graphics view" and it seems a waste of system resources that the "preview window" is always updating; or that when you hit the "render" button, the system fires up the preview window first, then opens the render window.

As the title says, I want to know the difference, if there's any, between the Scene and the Environment in Photoview's settings. I haz always thought they were the same, but in a project I had to recreate the settings made by another guy and he told me this: "My settings were very sinple:

Working on a large assembly in Solidworks 2017 that has numerous linear component patterns and mirrored components. When the assembly is rendered in Photoview 360, none of the instances of the component patterns appear, only the seed component. Is there some setting for Photoview 360 that I have to change to render component patterns?

I'm running SolidWorks 2017 x64 Edition, SP 4.1, and I'm having an issue with PhotoView 360. When I do an integrated preview of my assembly, PhotoView 360 adds in a cut that is no longer there (but was in an old render). The cut then visually stays in the assembly, even if I unload PhotoView 360. The only way to get the cut to disappear is by closing SolidWorks or Restarting the Computer.

My old graphics card failed so I bought a GeForce GT 710. This was a while back as I don't use PV360 that much. Tried to use it recently and all I get is the render window (Not Responding) then that quits and nothing else happens.

I wanted to initiate a forum discussion to understand your favorite tip/trick in PhotoView 360 or a concept that you felt would be important for someone new to PhotoView 360 to master. Basically imagine that you are responsible for training a new member of your group and that person is required to produce renderings in PhotoView 360. What tip/trick would you teach this person to help them use PhotoView 360?

Hello All,.. I ran into a weird screen render using a camera... it seems to be only in 2017/2018 and only when a camera is used... pulses/zooms in-out/grainy.. see attached file/video.. (also, so far,.. it is ONLY this sldprt file... some sort of file corruption? Can anyone using 2017/2018 test and confirm seeing this..?

I routinely used PhotoView 360, but I've noticed an odd change in its behavior recently. Unlike the past, no sound is generated when a Final Render finishes. In the past a series of noises (digital beeps) were played when a Final Render was complete. Now there is silence at the end of a Final Render.

It was working perfectly, got to 99.99% render, then all of a sudden it crashed, and I had to restart my PC. After that, I couldn't use PhotoView 360 without SolidWorks stopping. I have spent the better part of the afternoon trying to solve this.

I've been experimenting with creating a simple animation in PhotoView 360 to simulate how I want an illuminated button to behave. The button would have a ring of LEDs beneath a piece of translucent plastic such that the ring would "pulse" on and off. As opposed to setting up multiple point lights, I'm trying to use an animated appearance change (specifically luminous intensity) applied to a component to create the "on" and "off" conditions.

If anyone is interested. Here is a link to presentation Ron Bates and I did titled,"Visualize for the PV360 User - Ease the Transition" If you're a PV360 user that's wants to give Visualize a try this might be helpful.

I'm trying to create a cutaway render of a new product and have a strange problem occurring. I originally created a quarter cutaway with an extruded cut in the assembly that cut through all but 1 part. Later I changed it to be a half cutaway and had it cut through fewer parts. Everything looks just right until I fire up the Photoview preview window or final render.
