AO chanel - dysfunction ?

Postby surprenant » Wed May 11, 2016 12:21 pm

Hello,

I have some questions about possible dysfunction of Thea render.
- Before the latest update of Thea render I had my AO chanel working well (with Adaptive BSD of course). But so far it is always black and I can't find what changed.
How do you do to make the AO chanel appear and work ?

- when I go for render, there is always a first time with just the color chanel working. Then I need to stop and to start again for having all the chanels chosen work.

Can I save time and have everything the first time ?

Thanks for your reply,

Gaelle

Default AdapriveBSD presets do not use AO.
If you want enable it, then you can crate your custom preset:

Hello,

Thank you very much, that seems all clear... except that I can't see the new preset I renamed in the file Thea Data\Presets. It doesn't appear.

Do I miss a step ? Thank you by advance

Yes. The preset has to be moved/copied to plugin presets folder.
When you open Thea4SU main window, in the console you will read the location of the plugin folder. There is 'presets' sub-folder in it.

Thank you very much !

It looks like a bug. What version of Thea for SketchUp are you using? This was fixed some time ago. Have you tried 1.5.07.444.1442 that was published in Thea forum?

Actually i get the same problem here on another computer, I follow the instruction of the tutorial but the preset I just saved with a new name never appear in my C:\ProgramData\Thea Render\Presets as an .xml file. It does exist in my thea studio presets though, so it has been well-saved.

Can you unlight me on that problem ?

Thanks
