Inventor 2014 raytrace too dark

1819 Views, 10 Replies

Just tried to install Inventor 2014, SP1 to try ray trace, which should have been fixed...

 

When I use the default lightning with ray trace off, the lightning looks "normal"

When I apply raytrace interactive/good the image gets much darker and details are hard to see.

Wehn I apply best, it looks fine and normal again, if we try to forgets the specs.

 

Why does it become so dark when applying good/interactive raytrace?

 

Brgds,

Chris

They were only able to improve the good setting at this time.

Sometimes you just need a good old reboot.

Does it work if you increase the amount of lighting?

 

You can do that by click View -> Two Lights(or other) -> Settings

finally installed 2014...

Raytracing is totally messed up.. :smileymad:

Autodesk really screwed this release up big time.. 

And I can't believe we have been told to wait till next release for a proper fix.. Thats absolute BS </rant>

It helps a bit, but it is not pretty.

 

Besides it messes up the normal non raytracing view making it too bright.

 

All I ask for is, that the raytrace/non-raytrace lightening should somehow correspond as it actually does in "best"

 

Brgds,

Chris

Fair enough. Unfortunately I am not on a 2014 PC at the moment, so I cannot test it

I would still really appreciate some feedback from Autodesk on this issue...

 

Look at the attached files below, both are rendered from the same scene setup, but with "good" and "best" raytrace.

Is this how it is supposed to be, and if yes why?

Chris

From what I've heard/read it seems that someone really messed up Inventor 2014.. Something about a new kernel and they can't fix it until Inventor 2015 for some BS reason.

So I thought in SP1 they attempted to fix the "good" setting but couldn't fix "best" so they recommend everyone uses "good" until 2015 then hopefully they can fix it all..
