Re: Help with load error

Assuming you are running a 32 bit version of SketchUp 2016, most likely you didn't install the right version of Twilight Render. Uninstall Twilight Render, download the 32 bit version, and reinstall it.

That is a really interesting chair design!

Re: Render Animation - Color and light is not Stable.

Render to Texture is a very different tool from standard rendering. In a sense, it allows you to bring your rendering into your SketchUp model. I recommend you look at our tutorial on the subject: https://www.twilightrender.com/index.php/67-tutorials-v2/216-twilight-render-tutorials-render-to-textur...

Re: Render Animation - Color and light is not Stable.

There are two options: 1. If you are only moving the camera and not moving geometry, open the Animation drop-down in the TWR Animation Editor and check "Reuse Lighting". This will prevent the prevent the flickering. However, since you do have moving geometry, you probably can't go that route. 2. Cho...

Umm..... :halo:

Sky portals do work with preset 11. In fact they work best with the unbiased, Interior presets.

Re: Dark theme for Twilight

Oh really? That's weird, I wouldn't expect it to work that way. But hey, if it works out better for you, then yes, we did do that on purpose. :lol:

Re: Dark theme for Twilight

If you are using Windows 10, there isn't much you can do to change the colors. The title bar, as you noticed, but not much beyond that.
