I'm hvaing trouble getting a background to be visible in a vue render from Microstation. Anyone got any ideas where I'm going wrong?
The view dialog box with a vessel rendered, but showing a black background.
The Atmosphere editor dialog box, on the Environment Map tab, with Environment Map ticked and a image selected and a Mapping mode of Cylindrical.
The vue render dialog is pointing to the Atmosphere preset of 'Myles' which has the Environment Map set as above. To my understanding the sky background should be rendered?
What am I doing wrong??
It looks like it's related to the 'relighting' check button on the top of the vue render dialog. If I have this checked the renderer behave differently and produces vastly differend results:-
With the relighting button checked:-
note the post render setting dialog to the right showing re-lighting options
then the same render, the only difference un checking the relighting option before rendering:-
Why would unchecking the relighting option allow the background image to be visible while checking would produce a black background and highly distorted lighting?
Its probably best to send us your file to investigate that.
