What program are you using to render your model?

Upload the SKP file so we can see exactly what you’ve got.

#6

Put it in the 3D Warehouse and give us the link.


#7

sorry how do you do that i am new to sketch up


#8

could i send it to you via email


#9

If you are trying to render with the global light (the “sun”) then your interior will be all black. You likely need to add light sources, or remove a portion of your building so that the interior is affected by the light.

okay i will try


#11

Yes you right but now how can i seal that up and still have lights in side


#12

plus is there a way i can give my work a smooth gloss finish


#13

yeah it worked now how can i get lights into the building pleas a simple and efficient way as i am a learner


#14

I don’t know. I don’t use V-Ray… That probably something that you will want to reach out to Chaos Group for…


#15

okay where can i get them


#16

I would suggest checking out their forum or contacting whoever it was that you purchased V-ray from.


#17

hey do you have an easier way to put lights in interioriors using vray


#18

No. I use Kerkythea. It’s very easy to add interior lights it in. I don’t use Vray.


#19

I’m new to V-Ray and there is no apparent ‘easy’ way to add lighting. Trawl through youtube for tutorials as I have done. V-Ray is a complex bit of software but if you put in the time to learn it, it is very rewarding.

I got my licence last Thursday and doing ok so far.
