Does someone know where is the best place to keep all materials (JPEGS) when using worksets. Do you keep them with the job or in your local workset file or in the central file location on the server? I keep finding that materials are not auto loading when updating worksets from central file?

The ideal situation is to have central rendering library located on the server. Here you should locate all your mlib, plib and jpg files that get referenced in your accurender file location settings. This avoids ever losing materials. When a new version of revit is released never overwrite your .mlib files. Best to back them up some where so you could reinstall them over the top of the others. HTH.

Thankyou thats great After using Revit since 4.5 I am still constantly learning Revit, infact I am learning so much its a little unnerving at times as there is so much to know. I presently wonder if I am turning to a sort of Revit programmer/geek. File attached of one of my jobs done on Revit Thanks Again Steve

Yeah its always like that. You do get to a happy medium eventually, but there is always something that you come across that you've never really had to do, or haven't done for ages that you need a bit of refreshing... I'd consider myself a revit geek. Model looks nice, i'd imagine it would look very nice once some materials are setup...

Thanks for your replies they are great Hay I just finished this presentation for the developer to use as promos. With materials this time When I printed the finished shots post p/shop touch ups and onto photo paper I have to admit the finished perspective attached was still lacking "Vitality" for want of a better word. This is the case with 80% of my finished presentation images, they just lack that spark. My fellow VIZ mates like to chime in here often stating that Viz is the final solution. I refuse to accept that. (They are right of course) Could you tell me how you handle this area when printing your picaso's I am researching keynoting for our practise. Would love to hear what you are using? Cheers Steve.

I'd probably add some opaqueness to the glass, looks completely open. And also use maps more as opposed to flat coloured surfaces, the precast wall looks a little flat. Just some suggestions. I've never been to tied up in rendering, only ever really been quick jobs then edited in photoshop to show off to the client. Would like to eventually purchase some Rpc landscaping as i feel that's where my renderings lack variety. Never really had to make use of keynoting. Used it on one job, i know others swear by it. Most of my work previously was residential high-rise and keynoting wasn't really needed. Its more applicable for schools, hospitals where you may have a variety of different rooms that require the same function and same finishes. Here's a pic of one of my previous renderings. Given another chance there are quite a few changes i'd make.
