Thanks on the GI Env…looks good.

What does the Environment scaling do? I adjusted it up and down and didn’t see any difference in the render.


(Andrew le Bihan) #3

It should change the field of view for the environment only. Is it not working for you?


#4

I have an HDRI in the environment and I can see it in the Neon/Render View interface window. I scroll up and down on the ‘scaling’ function and nothing occurs with the HDRI. I have it in Equirectangular mode if that makes any difference.

Am I doing something wrong?


(Andrew le Bihan) #5

It won’t work in Neon yet.


(Dave Harbour) #6

Not have any luck adjusting the scaling either. Iam only doing this in Render not Neon.


(Andrew le Bihan) #7

Guys - it’s working here. Could you post me a simple model or screen captures so I can see what’s happening?

Andy,

In the Environment tab I see the Bg mult and Scal tabs but they have no effect.

When Scaling work will I see the environment scale in relation to the model. Also will scaling show only in a render view or real time?


(Andrew le Bihan) #9

It’s working absolutely perfectly here. It will only show in a Brazil rendering - it doesn’t work in the viewport or in Neon.


(Dave Harbour) #10

What the chance of make this work in the viewing window/real time?


(Andrew le Bihan) #11

In Neon - about 100%. In the rendered view - not very likely at all.


(Andrew le Bihan) #12

Are you still unable to use the scaling? I’m actually waiting for the results of this conversation to be able to release the next service release of Brazil.


(Dave Harbour) #13

I understand scaling works in the rendering output and Neon. At this point scaling in renderings is no use to me I don’t use Brazil to Render.
I would like to see scaling work in the viewing window in the rendering mode.


(Andrew le Bihan) #14

OK - I understand that. But this thread is about Brazil 2.0.
