Working in Revit 2011 and the pool water is green no matter what I do.  Please help.  I have used the floor for the pool and assigned a site-water material I have changed all kinds of settings with the end result of green water.  It looks like my pool needs to be cleaned.  Any advice?

 

Thank you,

 

Raina Mc

What is at the bottom of your pool?... Looks like site grass.

Yes I did have the topography site grass on.  I turned it off and rerendered and this is what I got.  Now it is showing the reflection of the trees and still turning out green.  What can I do about that?

You could reduce the reflectivity of the water.  Make it more opaque and add color.

 

But I think it looks pretty good as is.

I added color but it does not give me an option with Site-Water for opaque.  I have also realized that it is showing my background image through my water.  How can I avoid that?  Please help of course my boss needs it NOW!

What?  You don't have pool walls and floor in There?  That would solve your problems.

 

I now see that they have removed the ability to set transparancy for site-water ... if you start with another object like sand, then you could set those .... but you are netter off to use the site - water (pool)

WWHub,

 

Thank you thank you!  You saved the day.  Of course it was as simple as that.  I added the walls and pool floor and here is a rendering on the Best setting.  Doing another custom quality print render right now.

 

Thanks again,

Raina Mc
