I’m trying to drape an aerial photo onto a 0.25m grid.
The photo that is being draped looks like this:
When I try to use dcdrape to drape the photo it ends up looking like this:
Any help on how to make the rendering look more like the photo with a higher resolution would be greatly appreciated.
The size of the texture created and used by DCDrape is limited to about 1600 per 1600 pixels. So if your aerial photo is greater than 1600 per 1600 pixels it will be down sampled before being draped.
Bentley Descartes SELECTSeries 3 will be offering a new draping technology which has no such texture size limit.
Here is a video about the raster draping technology : communities.bentley.com/.../189367.aspx.
There is also a Technology Preview program for Bentley Descartes SELECTSeries 3 that you could join if you want to test this new raster draping technology (see communities.bentley.com/.../187504.aspx for more information).
Thanks heaps for your help. I think it was because the aerial was larger that 1600x1600 pixels. I have clipped my photo and it is now working.
Also the link to the video didn't work
I should have mentioned that you need to join the technology preview program (see the second hyperlink in my previous post) before being able to see the video.
Does the luxology render supports this new draping method?
Yes, Luxology is fully supported by this new draping method.
