resolution and presentation

Postby not registered yet » Mon Nov 26, 2007 10:55 am

Hello All,
A couple of questions if you don't mind.

1. What settings do I need to export a 2D image so that I can print a 24"x36" presentation board without jaggies?

2. If I bring a tiff image into Layout, is there any way to print to file for 24"x36"? Right now it will only let me print to file at a maximum size of 11"x17".

3. For interiors with ceilings, I'm using a light color and the back wall is the proper color but the ceiling is quite a bit darker (even though it's the same exact color). Any fix for that?

Thanks.

Hi Ken,

I don't work in inchs so I shall let someone else answer question 1. but generally I export at 3000 and tend to get pretty good results for larger images.

For you question concerning Layout, you need to create a 24x36 sheet.
Go to File/Document Setup/Paper and input 24"x36" This will give you the size you require.
Go to this thread here where I posted how to change your default Layout page size.
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=453

With interiors you will get a different colour due to light and shadow.
You could try opening shadow settings - Window/Shadows
If you tick the 'Use Sun For Shading' box, you can then play around with the light and dark sliders to hopefully get a closer match.

the bigger it gets the harder your job...

3000 should be about the limit you can achieve... I get SU failures at renderings above 3000...

really SU is not the prime rendering program... there are others that are free that will load your SU model and render better presentation images...

SU2POV
KT2007
Irender not free not too expensive
ADT 3D Studio Viz expensive as hell
Revit 2008 out freakingrageously expensive
3D Studio Max out freakingrageously expensive

there are many many others....

If I am doing a straight SU rendering at 24x36 I usually export at 6000 with anti-alis turned off. Then resize as needed. Never had any problems ;)

6000 never even made it that high I only got to like 3400... I can't remember the roor but I got it over and over again... I'll rerun the export and recreate and post...

Welcome to the forum Ken :mrgreen:
I am going to move this to the Newbie forum. The tutorials and how to are more for instruction. I will leave a "shadow" topic here for a day or so then I will remove it.

To add to the list that Kris started, have a look at this sticky in the Gallery for some more rendering options.
