"Thanks Roy. That did the trick. I just have to wrap my head round the logic behind it."

"Also, when I reduce the strength of the decal, instead of becoming transparent, it becomes grey. How would I set it to show some base material coming through?"

"Adding the decal from fresh using ARDECAL worked, even with my version. Next question: how do I add more than one decal to an object?"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"No, there doesn't seem to be that option. It's not a black & white image. It's a black image on a transparent background. So I'm not sure where the white is coming from."

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Looking at the png file you sent me, rather than having an alpha channel, it just has the background colour removed so that it is transparent. I think there's some confusion in terminology here."

"Okay. I've changed it to a png file. What steps do I take within AR Studio to get it to work properly"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Well, I've tried what you suggested, but I still can't get it to work. I'll send you the model and the decal. Maybe I've got something wrong."

"I tried closing down AutoCAD, restarting it, opening the drawing, loading nXt and AR Studio and it still didn't show up. However, it did suddenly appear when I started the interactive render."

"I've tried adding a decal using ARDECAL. It shows the mapping, but doesn't show up in the materials pallette."

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"My question was more basic than that. I don't actually know how to create and use alpha channels. So in AR Studio, how do I achieve this result using a decal?"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"That's very kind of you to offer, though it would still mean opening thousands of CAD blocks and saving them in the new format. Just so that I understand the process, how would I convert this jpg file to contain the correct alpha channel? and…"

"I think the model should load automatically. If you try to import a material before loading the model, you get an unhandled exception:"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Yes, it's just a bit of a pain with all the legacy data I'm working with - thousands of CAD blocks that have decals with colour masking."
Oct 20
Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Not sure. The materials take quite a long time to load as it is. Also, you may just want to make some adjustments first before launching the preview."

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"That's a shame. Colour masking is extremely useful."

Could you pull out the furniture in, "Fulcrum CE 05" save the file and share? I like to see how you treat your lights?

Yes.  Use WalkAbout and select the Two-Point Perspective Projection.

Hi Roy....do u mean that nxt 2 point projection option can solve my problem is it? Because autocad camera point at the top, normally the vertical line look not straight as the photo shown.

nXt has a two-point projection option in WalkAbout.

hi peter milner,I just have a look of your photo. I need your advise for the photo camera point. As I know Autocad only have 2 point instead of 3 point. But I saw your photo vertical line is straight. How to do it?
