Re: Fredo6's Animator integration ?

No, it is still in beta. I am one of the bet testers.

While being able to animate a material would really be neat, I think some of the materials I saw in the new materials would look much better than anything else I have tried.

Re: Fredo6's Animator integration ?

Any update on you reaching out to Fredo and his Animator plugin? I am also kind of curious about the water effects upcoming in your version 2.5 and whether they will be available in the Hobby version. One of the things I do with SketchUp is draw car was layouts. I want to use Animator to do an anima...

Re: Fredo6's Animator integration ?

Sorry, I had read somewhere that the products were developed by the same team. Good news that you are reaching out to Fredo and are working on a solution. I currently only have the Hobby version (us retired guys have a low budget) but am working with Animator and it would be a blast to use some of y...

Re: Fredo6's Animator integration ?

Pilou, I hope they respond to you. Since this product was developed by the same team that developed Thea ( which is in the process of working with Fredo's Animator), I would like to see Twighlight work with Animator as well.

Render Preset

What is the difference between Low and Low+ (as an example)?

Is there something I can read/watch that will help me understand the difference in rendering presets?

Re: Getting Started Questions

You could put something else behind the camera for the metal surface to reflect back - another wall, as long as it isn't big enough to cast a shadow. Your brick texture looks more like paviors, if you want to improve the realism. Tweaking the exposure in TL or an image editor would help improve the...

Re: Getting Started Questions

Thanks for the reply. Yes, the one surface was a reversed race which I corrected. I did change the sky to a single color but now the metal does not look as shiny as it did. I will check out the sources you suggested. Guess it is all part of the learning process. This is just a sample to help me get ...

Getting Started Questions

I am just getting started with Twilight and have no background/experience using rendering software. While I have watched some of the tutorials, I have a couple of very basic questions (see the image below): How do I control the color in the shiny metal. This is item 1 in the image. I always get this...
