Quick Question,

 When you save a file in 2008 format from within 2009, then it is opened and saved in Arch. 2008, and finally opened again in 2009, will all of the Mental Ray materials primarily applied in 2009 carry through?

 I ask because I am to be working and rendering in 2009, with the rest of the group in 2008. When i save the file in 2008 format and the file is opened by other users on 2008, then saved, once I reopen it in 2009, will my materials and other render settings carry through and still be present after I open it again?

 

Thanks!

Good question. Like most, I uninstall 2008 after I got 2009 running so it's hard to test. There's only one way to find out. Run a test and let us know. My guess is 'no it will not work', but that's just a guess. Someone else may already have the answer for you and post it. It's all about the materials library.

How are you saving Revit 2009 back to Revit 2008?

Well, I'm not sure if you can save back or not, I've never used 2009 before.

ZachBeale, i think they are pulling your leg. what you want to do is not possible to do with Revit.

I think the short answer is you can't do this.  The best solution would be to simply save a duplicate copy and then do renderings, but i wouldn't plan on taking it back to 2008.
