hello everybody !
im still learning using a sketchup ... today ive watched and tried vray lights and it didnt work for me
i saw tutorial with glass ... i made a glass , draw a rectangular lights around the glass , and in the render its the same , the light is from left to right and thats it ... its not changing ... how to make lights actually work ?
my mom is an architect and im going to maybe work with her and make 3d models from theirs 2d cad works ... so here is one of my works , and i would appreciate if you could help me and guide me with better results ( sorry for bad english this is my second language )
i like design and i would love to improve my skills ... i also made entire first flor with elements inside its in other file
sorry i forgot on this theme . i didnt know about render before now my skills are improved . but im stil struggling with vray lights ... look at this 2d export . i have draw all this thing , light all over and changed settings for all of them and experimented and nothing , the rendering with and without lights are same ... what am i doing wrong ? or what i aint doing ?
um, you should have a separate window that shows the rendering. Your image looks like a screenshot of your sketchup window
Hate to ask, but did you click on the blue "R" button (Start Render) in the vray toolbar?
i didnt export rendering because , like i said , the rendering doesnt change at all with and without lights.
im not noob like you think . i know renderings but i dont know with lights . its like they dont work
no worries. Just when it's asked to post a render, it's generally helpful to post the render. Maybe some information about your lighting and your camera settings too. I would guess your lighting level might be too low compared to your GI illumination.
please guide me sir ! how to fix it . vray is all on default . i can printscreen you something . i just need fast and usefull help because the vray doesnt work !
Have you tried increasing the intensity of your lighting? Hard to help without knowing what you are trying to do. What lights are you adding to your scene?
i just installed vray . i didnt do nothing but draw lights . here you can see rendeer without lights and without all . its just this thing i drew to show you guys
si this is object without anything.
this is objest without anything in render
this is object with all the lights and stuff
and object with lights in render
soo can you help me ? ive played with brightness yes and with all other stuff but nothing.
you can turn down the sun intensity setting. You'll find it in the environment tab when you click on the "M" next to GI. You could use a setting like 0.05
Then, you can reduce the camera speed to something like 30 or however low you need to get the scene bright again. Those are some quick tips, another option is to adjust your lights intensity much higher.
its marked gray and i cant change it ... its so hard without someone here to learn this ... im experimenting with material , stone wood and stuff and with rectangle light ... is there any way i can help myself better , because this little tips you give me arent much , but thanks . is there some tutorial from scratch ?
Yes, watch the tutorials. There's a sticky thread with links here
i thought forums are for helping other , not for bragging and showing you know stuff. this is example how nobody can help me. thats just sad people. i make money off making architecture and i wanted to improve my skills and learn new stuff. the tutorials dont always work !
Are you saying Andy hasn't been helping you? I don't see him dismissing any of your questions, nor has he been flaunting his own work.
Learning to render isn't done in a second. It takes time and you where on the right track, one thing at a time. But telling people who are replying to your questions that they aren't good enough because you're not getting the results you want fast enough is not any way to make friends. Skills takes time. Take it easy and be nice to the people who're nice to you.

My apologies if my answer was a little short. I learned a lot from the tutorials, and if you take the time, they can answer a lot of your basic questions much better than I can.
one of the best thing to learn is read the manual first,
second do it step by step.. i have written lots of tutorial about definitive lightings so read them, as andy said it will answer most of your questions. my tutorials are Here.. http://www.sketchupvrayresources.blogsp ... -hdri.html
you can also watch lots of youtube videos.
i am doing also basic tutorial series for vray sketchup. So if you are beginner this will be a great help/ I have finished the first part of my segment and will plan to do more. http://www.sketchupvrayresources.blogsp ... ies-1.html
Yeah I dont see anything that andy is bragging at all. He is very helpful. Perhaps cultural differences again..

Andy, I don't think you have any reason to apologize,because you are one of the most helpful person around.
DOMI, it's hard for people to give you the right answer and right away. Usually, beginners have questions from five to five minutes, and it's not bad, because it shows that you want to learn. Still, a beginner should read the manual first, then follow some tutorials,
and then hit the forum. In deed not all the people will help you, because people work, don't have an answer, or just don't want to answer.
So, the conclusion is to follow some tutorials about exterior rendering in this particular case of yours, visit Nomeradona's blog and bookmark them, search on youtube tutorials shared by ASGVIS or ChaosGroup .
And by the way, here you will get help, but not with this attitude.
