Render settings to show corner of walls or wall edge Please !!!

Hi

I haven't used nxt for a while, now I find myself having to do elevational shadows for council. The only problem I have is I do not know how to adjust my setting to be able to show corner of walls . I have attached an example, where I have the correct sun settings and I have done a render run, but I am missing something as the corner of the wall is not defined or showing. Can someone please help me with this asap, Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards

The particular sun angles you're using are illuminating both faces pretty equally-- I understand that this is a requirement you can't change.

I would use some skylight-- it will still show the sun shadows clearly but will differentiate surfaces a little better.

Hi Roy, appreciate your reply, do you have some inages or an example of how to use these skylights ? is it located in the lighting ? sorry mate, but if you have a diagram or a visual , it would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Roy is referring to the settings under lighting (see below).

It also might be worth adding some cloudiness to soften the shadows a bit.

Thanks Peter , Ill give it a go.

Cheers

Alex

"It's an easy feature to add, but I'm pretty sure with this new version you'll find a time constraint to be more reliable.  The rendering below is probably done already, with a noise filter, or close to it."

"Reliance on the noise filter does concern me a little. A lot of my work involves wood grain and fabrics, both of which can have varying degrees of texture which affect the way light is reflected. With the noise filter off, are renders likely to take…"

"Yes, that works now, though a bit glitchy. Dragging and dropping materials doesn't work (is it supposed to?)."

"Found it-- it's not working properly if the palette is docked.  For now if you drag the AccuRender Studio palette and make it floating everything works.  I'll see what I can do."
