hi everyone!

i talked to some guys at accurender..

nobody there told me anything like this

before but he said there would be no

point putting accurender 4 in revit because

it's still the same rendering engine except

the interface controls are changed but revit

has already changed the interface for revit..

what was good news for me was that he said

we can use all the new accurender 4 materials

with revit now.. plus he said there are other

places to get compatable materials..

i know accurender is old but i've seen so

many renderings with mental ray and i'm

not sure i want to change.. mental ray is

real good with reflection bounces but i don't

see the razor shape edges like i do with

accurender.. in fact if you turn all those

reflections off to zero in revit you get

really clear graphics.. i found the best

quality image is to render at 3 times

the size of your print layout..

if version 10 comes out with accurender

still there i won't mind a bit..

when you render you choose the size and you choose the scale..

those two things determine how big the picture will render..

(you never know how big the picture is rendering on screen

other than how long it takes to finish)

for example render any scene and save it as a bit map then open

it in paint..  you can print it 100% to whatever paper size

you are printing to or you can "fit to page".. say you are printing

to 11x17 paper and you select 100%.. if you rendered at a bigger

size than that it will print many pages.. but if you print "fit to page"

it will squeez it all on to the 11x17.. if you find the render size and

scale that exactly fits 11x17 and then render it 3 times you will get

the best "fit to page" print quality.. fitting 2 times larger than the paper

is a much improved print quality but 3 times is the best.. and more

does little or nothing..

my way of explaining it you may not fully understand but just

ask me more if you need..
