Render custom Line Styles as road markings, export to LumenRT

Hi all,

I've created a couple of custom line styles for road marking, to be rendered with Luxology and hopefully also exported to LumenRT.

The first problem is that the thickness of my dashed lines does not diminish as it progresses further from the camera. It seems to suddenly transition to a much thinner line at a random distance. Why is this?

I've also created a solid white line with the same thickness/ width settings as the dashed line, but it doesn't render with the correct thickness.

Here is a summary of the issues, as well as my Line Style settings.

Finally - is it still not possible to export these line styles to LumenRT? Here is an old post on the issue;

  • Hi Max,

    The first problem is that the thickness of my dashed lines does not diminish as it progresses further from the camera.

    For Linestyles to display correctly in a perspective view, diminishing as they recede into the distance, the Physical setting needs to be checked Ballot box with check the for the Linestyle.

    ...possible to export these line styles to LumenRT?

    To export line work that represents physical items such as pavement markings you need to use the Stencil tool. The Stencil tool uses the linestyles to create renderable mesh geometry that represent the linestyle by projecting them onto the underlying geometry.
