Re: Progress and time of photo rendering

If you want to update the plug-in on SourceForge.net, just edit your initial comment there and delete the existing attachement and add a new one. Don't you have access to these tools?

By the way, thanks for trying to improve the existing renderer, but could you give some details about what you changed?
Please add some comments in your source files with GNU GPL headers and notices about the changes you made compared to original source files? The section 2 of this license states how you should proceed when you make some changes to some existing source code.

I'm not convinced about the progress bar in Sweet Home 3D photo creation tool, mainly because it will hardly give precise results. As soon as the Sunflow is working on rendering glasses, you know that it takes much longer and you can't guess it. I know that the the progress bar in Sweet Home 3D video creation tool is not precise too, but it was added there first for user's feedback purpose, whereas in the photo creation tool, the feedback is already shown with the buckets.

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering

When making test renders, people tend to compare the time one test takes with the time of another test. Especially in Q4, rendering can take a long time. Longer than one is willing to wait and watch the screen to time the duration. A built-in timer would give the time, while people can make coffee, take a shower or go shopping.

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering

Emmanuel,

On SourceForge, I can only edit comments in discussion.

Information about the GNU GPL license and the changes made to the SH3D source code have been added to the plug-in Java sources.
Compared to the original photo panel, the plug-in allows :
- a display of buckets in row with the same visual size regardless of the image width
- ceiling lights a little less dazzling and sometimes centered differently
- rendering aerial view identical to that in virtual visit
- a reduced number of samples in global illumination "path"

For sure the buckets gives an idea of the progress but the progress bar can also be useful for an ipr rendering.
The elapsed time is a further indication even if the estimated remaining time is less accurate.

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering

I renamed the ticket of this plug-in for you.
Thanks for the comments in SunflowRenderer.java and AdvancedPhotoPanel.java classes showing the changes you made. Just one missing thing for next time: you should mention where these classes come from, and add the original @author tags of these classes. The idea behind these requirements is that anybody who wants to keep track of the changes you made should be able to find your sources.

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering

Thanks for the change on SourceForge.
I have added a link to the source file and the name of the original author.

Version 1.1 displays the estimated remaining time for Sunflow renderer.

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering

I tested this plugin I find it really well and is interesting to have an estimate of the duration of pictures and above it are faster. It would be a plugin has built-in software

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering (Create photo with renderer plug-in)

Version 1.2 has an option to enhance the external brightness for a sky without texture.

Option disabled (default)

Option enabled

Thank you.
I tested it under Ubuntu 14.04 and it works fine.

Re: Progress and time of photo rendering (Create photo with renderer plug-in)

I also tried it. It works fine. But if this was also available where the sky is with texture, then it would have been wonderful

Unfortunately, this is a limitation of the SunFlow rendering engine, which handles skies with and without textures differently.
