I have a problem in Revit Architecture.  I am designing a floor for a room with a big tile design in the middle.  I set the floor to a finish and put an image file in for it.  The image is a big panther, however, every time I render the image the panther is not centered.  Instead of one large centered panther, 4 pieces of one show up, off center.

I have done everything I can think of, can someone please help?

It looks like you used this as a finish material instead of a decal and the pattern start is in the middle of your space.  I'm not sure how you can control this.  But if you place this pattern as a decal on the floor, it should work.

You must adjust the values of the image....

Typhoon - I think the size is OK ... just the repeat location.... seems to be centered on his space rather than one corner.

Hummm, what about "Split Face" that floor in the place you want and Use the "Paint" tool with that "texture"????

Typhoon - I think he has to somehow control his pattern origin.   I have not done that enough to know how.  That's why I suggested just pasting it as a decal on the floor

WWhub, yeah, the decal works fine, i know that, but if he don't want to use that what he can do is "Crop" the image with the right measure in a external software (photoshop) then use that system (split-paint) and adjust the values to fix the "right" image in the "split Face".... and in this way the image appears in the center.....

what you really want to do is use the texture alignment tool in the material rendering settings to align it to the shaded view surface pattern:
