    Doh. Object snap were turned off. I'm just trying to show I guess, how you can use this program for 25 years and still make your dog look smart....

    WIP shots of current project. Comments? I always find water to be a real challenge in V-ray. I really wish I could get caustics to work. No matter what I set it to I can not get it to change my image. It just slows the rendering down and nothing else. Has anyone gotten it to work with FMZ?

    Here's kind of a fun and unique one I designed on for the upcoming Winter X Games in Aspen. It's an outdoor hospitality area at the base of the mountain where people can come and hang out and use the interactive areas to learn about the athletes. There's also a dynamic art gallery with alternating projections and a DJ booth upstairs.

    Roundover

    Hi palarson, I just tested this and it seems that something has changed somewhere, an the roundover modifier is not currently working as it used to. I will investigate.

    Sounds like you sold it. Well done. Surely uninstalling would deactivate? Maybe make sure you are online and restart the computer.

    I think that is a great bargain Phil! I already have two licenses for just me so I won't be buying. I would suggest to anyone who has a single license to snap this offer up. And anyone who's trying out Fz to get it! Des

    interface lag on MacOS

    Since he said it also happens on his Windows workstation, I highly suspect the file has something wrong with it. Unfortunately, you will likely need to try rebuilding the file like I mentioned above. Also, make sure the file does NOT have 'Keep Textures' enabled, as is stupidly enabled by FormZs default installation. To check, with the file open, go to File>Project Files> Keep Textures box should be unchecked and the File Optimization slider should be 3 notches from the 'Open Fast' side. I was told this is the best position from AutoDesSys themselves...

    interface lag on MacOS

    Try turning off snaps you aren't using. Snap to Intersections does more harm than good when modeling in moderately complex files. I rarely use it.

    How do I create a face?

    I generally stuck with the sub-d tool pallets in sub-d "mode". You can however use the "swap" command to turn off the sub-d, and then work with the standard tools. I use this approach quite often.

    Hi Justin, When using the Sub-D tools, there are always two... the cage, or the facetted object that establishes the structure of the sub-divided version, and the sub-divided version itself over top of the cage. So, your model is always facetted underneath, but looks subdivided, and as a result "smoothed". You can toggle this state by using the Subdivision Swap tool. Make your facetted edits, and then switch back. In addition, you can use tools that work on facetted objects to change the shape of the sub-divided model even when it is in the sub-divided state. The caveat is that it should be expected to work on the facetted model as if the sub-d was not applied. So if you know well your form.Z, you will be able to predict what will work and what won't. It is best to keep four-sided faces for sub-division surfaces, otherwise the results can become unexpected. Hope it helps. Best, John A

    obj import issues

    why do obj files importing with all the fz materials showing as 100 per cent transparent ? I am needing to go through large and complex models with many materials on import and change the transparency back to zero percent to see the model in any shaded mode

    Allen I use plane lights and mesh lights almost exclusively now. For my light fixtures I use a sphere and then mesh light it. Works so much better than cones or points and seems to have no affect on render time. IES lights are a bust for now. V-ray seems to ignore the intensity so I have to adjust them up to extremely high levels to do anything. The nice thing about mesh and plane lights is that they can be used as fill lights and directional lights and quickly scaled.

    obj import issues

    If I understand the issue correctly there is an easy fix. On the import dialogue the last checkbox under obj options is 'Invert Transparency' ....check that when required. Martin

    Hi all, This is a master bath I designed. Rendered using the highest vray quality rendering. I have to confess, I have been spoiled by maxwell and multiple computers to render with. To me this rendering seems a bit blurry still. I welcome comments.

    Sun settings not updating

    The problem is with the automatically generated V-Ray sun. If you create your own light source and switch it to V-Ray sun the Sun Position works as it should.

    Top Ten FormZ 9 list

    For formZ it would be great to have a parametric door and window creation tool where libraries of all common door and window types could be modified. This would include libraries of interior and exterior casing profiles, sills, vertical and horizontal muntins counts, frame types, etc - all with dimension inputs. Perhaps someone has already produced this but cannot find.
