Re: Twilight V2 and Skatter

Phil, did you check that Skatter is enabled in the Render Editor? Under Settings -> Advanced Settings there should be a checkbox for Skatter.

Re: lost twilight window when i updated sketch up pro

They probably got moved offscreen. Go to Extensions -> Twilight Render V2 -> Options and click on Options. Then click on the Reset button next to "Reset all saved dialog positions".

Re: Windows Defender

Is it the "Windows protected your PC" screen? If so, that's what Windows displays for every unsigned application. It does not indicate there is a problem at all. If you mean something else, please post a screen shot. I just downloaded the latest Hobby release and scanned it with Windows Defender and...

Re: to make the color of the surface change smoothly

Faceting (which is what you are observing) can almost always be fixed by placing the geometry inside a Group.

Re: Twilight V2 and Skatter

Weird. I can repeatedly render it successfully. What version of Skatter are you using? I just updated a couple days ago and have 1.4.12. Also (I didn't think of this until just now), is your Twilight Render Pro license activated? You can check by going to Extensions -> Twilight Render V2 -> Options ...

That's the skatter grass model (which is 16MB by itself).

Re: Twilight V2 and Skatter

To confirm, you have a locked and hidden instance of the grass in your SketchUp outliner?

What happens if, in the Skatter editor window, you uncheck Render Only, then re-check it (to enable re(Generate)), and then click re(Generate) and try to render?

Re: Twilight V2 and Skatter

Strange. When you imported your grass from the library, what options did you check?

Re: Twilight V2 and Skatter

When you import a model using "Full Geometry", it only creates a single instance and then hides it. It certainly shouldn't make your model "full" (though it will make it larger in file size). Maybe we are looking at this in two different ways. Can you explain how you are using Skatter that is causin...

Re: Twilight V2 and Skatter

I just tried 2020 and it is working there too. My first run through, it didn't render but that was because I missed a step. Here are the steps I followed: Create a "floor" component made from a rectangle Open the Skatter editor Open the Skatter Library Choose one of the grass models from the Skatter...
