    Okay, I'll take you up on that. I wound up using a different material that looks a bit more like the actual brick. I'd still like to know how to fix the problem, though. It's rendering now so I'll do it in a few. Thanks!

      Well, I deleted everything and it's still 6 meg. All I have is walls, whatever families Revit wouldn't let me delete, and materials. Do I need to delete each material one at a time? That will take a while. lol

        6 MB is fine, if you mail it to munkholm (at) revitforum.org

          Renderings ARE a lot of work! Everyone seems to think there is an 'easy' button for them... "Doesn't Revit automatically update/fix everything instantly? Isn't that why we use it?" Lol

              Dan, got your email, and have made some changes, which brings it really close and I´m sure you can get even closer by changing some of the values.

              Basic steps.
              1. Chose a new "generic brick" material as the base.
              2. Change the image to Chateau King Running
              3. Set the right image size
              4. Set image brightness to ~20
              5. Change the color to fit the image (RGB = 106-73-58)
              6. Turn down image fade to ~80
              7. Create a bump map from the image (Photoshop, Greyscale, Invert & Exposure setting)
              8. Choose the new bump map for bump
              9. Set the right image size
              10. Set the brightness to ~50
              11. Set the bump amount to ~100

                It looks like the final step would just be to add a little saturation in the render exposure control and increasing the contrast a bit by playing with the highlights and shadows controls

                  Wow, nice job Munk. Thanks for taking the time to look at it. I really do appreciate it.

                  However, LOL..................

                  After all that it's still not the correct color. It's actually a red brick and that still looks brown to me. Mayb I need to go to the eye doctor.

                  Here's an actual pick of the building we are matching. It's the reddish brick on the sides. I actually have a sample board on my desk and it looks just like that so it's not just the picture.

                  Maybe the color sample from Acme is just wrong?

                  That being said, can you explain why the bump would affect the color so much? Even though it's the wrong shade, your's still looks way better than my original one. I think it's because of the bump map.

                    I wound up just using a redder brick and faking it for the renderings. Here's what it looks like.

                    There are some issues with the rendering. Half because I'm don't know what I'm doing in PS, half because I suck at rendering. SO be gentle. lol

                    The picture for the background wasn't camera matched perfectly, but it's close enough for what I need it for. Also, you can see where I took out a tree in PS. I did a crapp job blending the sky back into the remaining trees.
