I am not sending 5 months work out, 70mb, even to the Queen, so I have had to recreate this, another hour gone, 3am now beckons.
I manage to recreate the effects.
see how layout makes the underhang dark shadowy interior of the cut cylinder appear to be external shapes, completely wrecking the sectioned cylinder effect whilst model mode gets it correct.
see how layout has darkened the planar surfaces.
HOW DOES ONE ALTER THE LIGHT SOURCE IN LAYOUT AS UNLIKE SAME VIEW IN MODEL MODE THE LIGHT SOURCE IS COMING FROM LOWER DOWN AND SHINING UPWARDS INTO THE CYLINDER LIGHTING THE UNDERSIDES UP INSIDE.
In normal model mode we have the light source as mother nature intended ! Up above shining down, and without knowing that Layout has other ideas on this, our brains think the shapes are different to what they truly are. Why is Layout different on light sources, a bug ?
As one pans the object down and up the reflections change. go upwards and they get less, in my true 70Mb file it leaves me no room for my dimensions above the item by the time I have it with no reflections on the 4th item in from the left, so will have to accept part loss, open it in pshop and edit it then reprint to pdf.
whats it like in V6 and 7 ? does this file do the same ?
