Safe or export image

Post by lucas_nico » Wed Apr 16, 2014 10:39 am

Hi there - now that I've got it going - the questions mount up :-)
I usually safe my still from sketchup via export as jpeg - simple.
After rendering with LightUp I see the image I want but when I export it the same way as usually it only safes a white page?! What am I doing wrong?
I also have the problem with the lines showing up in the rendering which I would rather not have?
Thanks, Anja.

While in TourTool, you can use the Capture dialog (press <return> if its closed) to output high resolution Stills and Movies (and panoramas).

By default LightUp draws the edges of your model ('stroked edges') and this can be adjusted in realtime or disabled in Preferences->Viewing

Hi Adam, thanks for your answer, you're a great help.
The first tip you gave me worked - I can safe my images now.
The second tip I couldn't follow. I don't have the possibility to change the stroke (see my attachment)?
Is there an altenative?
Thanks, Anja.

Oh, I see. You are using the stripped down Interface that hides many controls to get started.

Click on the "Advanced GUI" button to switch over to the full LightUp controls where you have lots more.. well, controls over lighting and rendering.
