I have a digital terrain model (DTM) and an orthophoto. After draping the orthophoto onto the DTM the colors of the image look quite different from the original, with lower contrast. Now I would like to create a 3D pdf, but in the pdf the draped image looks much darker; not satisfying at all.
Is there a way to keep the colors of the original image, so the 3D pdf looks satisfying?
Hi Markus,There are a few settings that you could try in the “Light Manager” dialog box:* Turn on “Ambient” & “Flashbulb”. Experiment with the values but you shouldn’t need to go too high as it will over expose your scene.* In the “Solar > Details” tab, set the cloudiness to about “80”.In the “Print” dialog box:* Got to “Settings > 3D Plotting” and set “Lighting Mode” to “Headlamp”* I also like to set “Display Mode” to “Solid Outline”If you are using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC on a computer with Nvidia graphics cards, there is a long standing hardware acceleration bug.
