Hey peeps.... anyone who has or is reading this post about lighting... check out the post on Advanced Internal Lighting... if you want to get great results on internal scenes with you sunlight... you need to swtich on the Daylight Portals  (edit the settings under quality in the render dialog box)...

I only noticed this last week and it can make a big difference - though increasing render time.

Here is the link ideate gave me.  Rendering seems to be working better.  Although when rendering an exterior scene with interior artificial lights on you need to crank up the wattage/lumens really high like 1500 from 100 to really see a lighting contrast from inside/outside.

Does anyone know how I can make a dome skylight I downloaded into a daylight portal?  It comes in as a generic component, not a window.  For now I've been faking it with some artificial lights under the skylights.  Thanks!

The service pac is really just the neweest upgrade to Revit 2009 and you can download the file from the autodesk website.  The file is fairly large and you need to follow all directions and reinstall Revit with the upgrade.  Important to note as I said before in an exterior view with both artificial and sun lights on you need to really crank up the power of the interior artificial lighting to see them inside.  Good luck

I'm having the same problem with my renderings, the lighting tends to be too orange, and it also looks as if my floors are burning out.  (also having problems with light fixtures being too deep and I'm unsure how to edit them so they stay in the ceiling)  Any suggestions?

Pick in the light, go to the properties> edit/new and change the parameters, see the image attached.

I've found this "yellowing" to be particularly bad in files created in older versions of Revit. You can edit the light fixture family and change the family type to use a cooler light source, lie fluorescent. They provide a nice preview of the how the chromaticity (color temperature) of different light sources will affect a standard image.

Hi JustinT, I've checked out the Revitup website you've recommended and I'm still having trouble with sunlight lighting up my room properly.. I've selected Daylight Portals for all my windows and door to have luminosity but the room is still dark (black basically). I've even checked that my glass is transparent. Does anyone have this problem? or is it my  hardware??

Eleuthra: All you need to do is to cranked up your wattages OR lumens by at least 10x of its original value (i.e., from 60watts to 600watts). You might want to change the "Kelvin" (light temperature/color) to a higher value like 5000. The lower the value the warmer "yellowish" it will get.

Check out the checkershadows illusion by Edward H. Adelson at MIT

In the picture black square A is the same colour as white square B

Seems unlikely.

Proof shown at the link below

http://web.mit.edu/persci/people/adelson/checkershadow_illusion.html

If our eye is so decieved by context like this then looks right is good enough for me.
