    Another Maxwell Render

    Hi Andy. I thought your tubular lights are the cylinders and they are high polygon models (or interpreted so from FormZ parametric cylinder by Maxwell). And they might to intersect with smaller tubes underneath. Also you might have your window emitters being intersected with window frames. Unfortunately I don`t see the scene myself so I can`t tell more. What I found from that text is the invisible emitters are real time savers. Best, Anton.

    Another Maxwell Render

    Hi Andy. Oh! That`s pretty slow! WHy did not you used GPU as well? You have nice card. Also I suggest you to use PHOTOGRAPHY TECHNIQUES FOR SPEEDING UP INTERIOR RENDERS I assume you used high definition models as emitters. Also I believe your emitters intersect with other objects. That significantly increases rendering time. Best, Anton

    Chain wire fence wire how to

    As the other approach: your wires are particular case of flattened helix: chain fence.fmz.zip Unless of course you need to RENDER the whole thing. In this case you might need to play with transparency and bump maps. Best, Anton.

    Component problems

    Ones I tried components in quite large project and fund them a mess too. In the end of the day I started to use Thea render instances instead. But it is the only option for rendering needs and you can`t make any layout and drafting with it. Not speaking of beta unreliability. So finally I even could not stick with FormZ and had to finish my project in Thea Studio.

    wip & recent renders

    Nice! Really nice work! Both designs and renders. Keep it up. Anton.
  11. Hi Walter. I faced the same problem and here is a workaround: Make a new file with camera you would like to have in the scene Export to Thea Scene Open your main Thea scene File -> Merge Scenes Voila! Your camera is in there. If you need multiple cams chose next cam in your FormZ scene and export to Thea Studio again. Merge to main scene. Unfortunately despite my request to import multiple cams at once SI would not managed to get it in last update. Best, Anton.

    Some interior renders

    Hi HugeMonkey5 sorry for late reply. I use Adaptive BSD with preset BSD Interior High. Also I increase tracing depth to 10 to get better results with glass and liquids. This particular image at 1900x1400 took about 100 minutes to render on my 3,41 GHz 6-Core I7 Anton.

    Thea for FormZ - Share your Work

    Hi Justin. Pretty nice project! Let warn you against upgrading to 1070. It is not supported yet. For that price I`d buy 980 and get best results possible. Best, Anton.

    Some interior renders

    Hello again. If there is a chance someone wants to see the whole set, you can find it here.
  18. Hello there. Seems like it is not possible to create this simple model with current build of FormZ: 3 watch wristbelt part.fmz.zip This is just the sample of how it does not work for me. I spent about 4 hours trying to find workaround. Nothing works. If I create it properly here it has bugs in another parts.
  19. Hello Tech. I found the workaround for that shape yet hope it [FormZ 8.5.7] will be fixed soon. Best, Anton.

    Hi Justin. Thank`s. Yes I am. It is fast and gives nearly as good result as it Maxwell does.
  23. I put myself into a risk being annoying yet the problem was not solved. Since I installed WIP Layout app and tons of files turned into pumpkin. I can`t use it any more. And I don`t see any attempt to find a solution from your side. Your suggestion to print to PDF does not work obviously as this is a way I normally do it. And I can`t agree to leave it as it is because you suggest it is on my side (normal sysadmin behaviour). I definitely need my Layout in my workflow. Neither here nor emails are answered. Would you please check what`s going on with print to PDF. The majority of FormZ users are getting paid for drafts not the pretty renders or nice models. Regards, Anton Voloshin.

    In memory of Paul Helm

    This is really sad. I have no words. Deepest condolences to family.

    Hi Desmond. It`s been really crazy month. I am afraid those buried somewhere. I am terribly sorry! Would you please resend them either via email or Dropbox or via formz.xyz submission form. I will place them to repository ASAP. Best regards, Anton.
