I imported a few animals from Google Sketchup 3D Warehouse as i could not find any in RevitCity. in the 3D view they have color but as soon as i render them they turn all the way white. is there a way to change this? or a place to find some farm animals that will rener nicely and in color?

thanks JJlittle

I've never tried Google Sketchup stuff in Revit but when you import AutoCAD 3D content into Revit all the layers in the CAD file are imported as Object styles. However the object style don't have a rendering material included with them. In 3D views the AutoCAD stuff will look coloured too. Check to see if you can assign rendering materials to the Sketchup stuff.

 Also have you looked into RPC content? There are a few sites that offer it and a program called RPC creator that you can download to make stuff. It renders in photorealistic colour then.
