Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

Sweet Home 3D 4.5 was released tonight.
Unfortunately, I didn't find a way to correctly interpret mirror modifier in 3DS files yet, but I hope I'll be able to fix this in a future version.

Thanks to you all for your support smile

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

I updated to 4.5, and now my advanced renderer doesn't open. How do I get it back?

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

The features of the advanced renderer are included in Sweet Home 3D since version 3.0.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

I tried it, and the old version is MUCH better. I had more control, and the images were more realistic. Now they still take hours to render, but are terrible.

Ignoring the artifacting, which I believe I've solved:

Old Renderer:

New Renderer:

Sorry, but the new one does NOT include the features of the advanced renderer. I'm going back to the old version.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

The second image looks like blurred. Wouldn't you have selected a Depth of field lens rather than the default one?

Sorry, but the new one does NOT include the features of the advanced renderer.
Note also that you can get more control on the renderer using special properties explained here with some tests here.

I'm going back to the old version.
It's up to you. But if you encounter a bug in an old version or miss a feature, please check whether it was fixed or added before reporting it.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

I selected the Depth Of Field setting.

The new problem is, when I went back to the old version (3.7) the advanced renderer no longer shows up, even though the files are intact. Either way, all of my work is lost, and I don't have another app that can render my models. (I've tried many, before you start suggesting.)

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

Comparing with the latest version 1.6 of the Advanced rendering plug-in, I really wonder what feature you miss. Please list them here, and I'll tell you how to do.

The last version that fully supported the advanced rendering was the version 2.6.

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

I miss being able to render a clear image with realistic lights, no a fuzzy one with blown out lights. How do I get my old version back?

Re: Sweet Home 3D 4.5

Use Default lens not Depth of field one, and learn how to set the light power in the new version. Did you prefer silk or glossy rendering?
With a little patience, I'm sure you can get even better result that with the plug-in.
