    Shaded full shadows through glass

    Justin, Self illumination can be achieved by setting the material's reflection to constant. I believe this is default when you use the billboard tool.

    Learning Form Z 9

    I remember seeing some of those videos and they excellent. I think for me, the biggest difference from 6.7.3 to 9 is the fact that in v.9 FormZ is really meant to be worked on in shaded mode. It's far more graphically oriented than 6.7.3. Watch the videos from Evan Troxel. They will be very helpful.

    Palette dock FZ v9

    David, Your palettes look very messy. Even though I'm not on a Mac, I have never had such a mess of palettes. Have you tried resetting the workspace? I used to work on a mac daily, until last year. Now only sporadically; and I never had such messed up palettes. Something is definitely wrong. I would try reinstalling the program.

    Roaming controler

    No solution yet that I'm aware of. That bug annoys the heck out of me too.

    Do you have your latest video driver installed. Have you restarted your machine?

    Maxwell Cloud Rendering

    That sounds really good. It's very encouraging. I will eventually buy Maxwell for my own business. Meanwhile, by full time employer doesn't have the need for it.

    Very nice! I found, from personal experience, that in China they can make just about anything.
  10. This is a great tutorial Chris! I, for one, am very appreciative of the time and effort you put into this. When I read the first posts, I wondered how in the heck I would build a bottle like this. You made it seem simple and logical. You really brought out the power of the sub-D tool. Thanks again!

    Hi Support, I suppose this newer release has some minor fixes. Could you please tell us a bit about it?

    V-Ray for FZ update?

    I'm really curious about this too. I read that for Max they have the equivalent of multi-light from Maxwell.

    vray image autosave

    Andrew, Did you check to see if the bump map file was not saved as grayscale, or something other than RGB? That has given me grief before.

    Is anyone else experiencing frequent crashes in full shaded mode, especially when turning clipping planes on and off? Compared to the, the newest release seems unstable in shaded mode to me. I transferred to a different workstation, for instance, and some textures where disconnected, if I tried to go to shaded mode (not full shaded) it would immediately crash! Oops, forgot to mention I switched to a 4k monitor, so I'm running 9.0,4.2 in 4k. Maybe a video card issue?

    Very smart setz!

    formZ v9.0.4 Now available

    I hope this gets corrected. It leaves a bad impression on new or possible new users.
  19. Renaming clipping planes stops working after the file gets to be a certain size. This really needs attention. I have now many unnamed clipping planes that I have to activate in order to see which one it is! Windows 10. Latest Z version.

    Rmulley, Great Job! The glass looks so real. Did you use one of the predefined glass materials from Vray? If so, which one?

    Display Resolutions

    Sometimes I find myself having to model hundreds of cables with 1/8" radius. For things like that, it just doesn't make sense to have that much resolution. Besides, it inflates the file size unnecessarily.

    Thank you setz! I have been wishing for something like this for a long time.

    wip & recent renders

    Awesome renderings! I wish I got to do more of those. Love the glass facade on the third one. Still done in Maxwell?
