I've been using Microstation for about 20 years now and I used to get pretty good results when rendering images in the pre-Luxology era. Now I have a project that needs a decent rendering and I'm totally lost on Luxology and all its settings. The more settings I discover, the darker the image appears to become (!)
Here's the latest attempt:
Here's the same building in shaded mode:
And here are some settings I have:Ambient is on max (I've tried everything between off and max)Flashbulb is on max (I've tried everything between off and max)Solar Intensity is on 50 (I've tried everything between off and max)
I have no lights defined which is probably part of the problem but I just can't figure out how to get the best out of my image using Luxology.
I'm using V8i SS3 and any input would be much apreciated
I see in Enviroment setting on right side in middle, under lux , in rectangle set Light probe , that s problem , if you have no lamps see darky, pls set Sky , choose for example Modeling on right side, , then ambient set 15%, flash 5% and set sun carefully by solar position 80%, try and then precise and play with it,
cross fingers ;-)

Try turning off Photographic Tone mapping. See your picture of the Light Manager, bottom.

Thanks for the tip! It's looking a lot better now
Thanks for the tip. I shall try this on Monday
There's quite a difference Ivo.
