Ugh such a simple fix! But it was exactly what I needed. Thank you so much Francisco!

General CG discussion / Floor Generator Quick Question
« on: 2019-02-05, 17:01:42 »
Hello all!

I recently started using Floor Generator and have finally reached some issues I cannot figure out. Whenever I import splines, even as separate files, all of my instances of floors will all have the same material when I apply the material from the slate editor, even when I am not copying modifiers.

I am importing each floor shape individually and using individual floor generator parameters. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

Corona for Blender / Material Preview in Viewport
« on: 2018-02-18, 04:01:58 »
I'm sure this is an incredible small thing that I am somehow missing, but how do you preview the material textures in the viewport? I'm trying to add in textures and nothing is happening sadly.

Any help is appreciated!

New version 5.6.6 fixes this


Sir, you are a miracle worker. I have successfully rendered a test version of my scene. One note, I did get a failure but was able to determine that a wall with a / in the name was the cause, so I removed the wall and voila, it worked.

Genuinely, thank you so much for your help.

Your last error is because of quotes in the object name I will look at a fix soon

I see. I am sorry, I know this is probably becoming a huge headache for you. I will say that this project is not urgent, and thus I greatly appreciate your effort in helping me. The unfortunate reality for me is that it seems nearly every family/wall type/floor/roof, etc. that Revit uses in projects has the " in the name somewhere. I guess that's what I get for being in an imperial system country.

Could you post/share your problematic scene file?

Sure thing! It is a fairly large scene due to the nature of the project, thus I am using a Google Drive download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5ER3jcQvQ2oX255akJMTnRlams/view?usp=sharing

I am beginning to feel as if there is no hope! However I do believe that the real issue is being narrowed in on, hopefully I can get it figured out soon.

I updated the exporter as you noted, and received the following error:

Corona for Blender / Re: Export Error: Unknown Location

I went ahead and went back through the whole process of getting the add-on into blender, and was able to successfully render a basic box with a sun, as well as the chocofur scene with no hiccups.

I then tried to import my FBX model (My workflow for Cycles has always been Revit --> FBX --> Cycles) and received my same unknown location error. Is it possible that Corona just really doesn't like my workflow?

I think the issue is the " in the filename. Of course the exporter should handle this but for now can you please rename the object

Sink_Vanity-Square_20"_x_18"_[1362616]

Well, I decided to render the most simple scene possible, see attached, and received the following console log:

Corona for Blender / Export Error: Unknown Location
« on: 2017-05-06, 06:44:03 »
Hello,

I am fairly new to Blender, but consider myself to be thoroughly competent when rendering with Cycles. However, I recently decided to begin learning Corona for Blender in order to use it as my full time render engine for ArchViz.

BUT THERE IS ONE PIVOTAL ISSUE: With the exception of the first time I rendered the chocofur test scene, I always receive an error telling me that the location is unknown. No matter what file I use, or what I do to try to fix it, this most basic error is proving to be my arch nemesis.

I know it has to be some dumb banal thing I am somehow screwing up, so please help me and set me free. ANY and ALL help is appreciated.
