    Creating a Wireframe rendering with Revit and Photoshop

    Here´s a short little "How to" create a Wireframe rendering using Revit and Photoshop.

    1. Render your camera view in Revit & Export the Rendered image in PNG format.

    2. Change your camera view to Wireframe, and Export the view in PNG format (Same pixel size as the rendered image)

    3. Open the Rendered image in photoshop

    4. Find a pretty "sky" and open that too (Hate the Revit skies)

    5. Drag the sky on top of the Rendered image, and sort the new sky layer below the Rendered image

    6. Open the exported Wireframe image

    7. Drag the Wireframe on top of the Rendered image, and make sure the new layer is on top.

    8. Add a new "Layer Mask" to the Wireframe layer

    9. Add a new Gradient (Pick from right to left - with settings as shown)

    10. Right click the layer mask and choose "Refine Mask" and change settings as shown

    11. Set the transparency on the Wireframe layer to 75%~ - Save the final image (Or make further improvements)

    Not really sure how useful this is, but I do find the outcome pretty neat :beer:

      If you don't have Photoshop, in RAC2012 you can create a similar effect by setting the view to Realistic, and enabling Ghost Surfaces.

        Pretty sure you can do this with Gimp too (Open Source)

        And if Gimp can´t do it, surely one of the other nine free apps on this page can...

          I personally like the effect to be reversed the rendering portion closest to the camera and the wireframe kinda fading into the

            Very Cool

            Is Photoshop the only way to create skies?

              No, you can use any image editing software. The sky is not really "made" in Photoshop, it is composited into the behind the rendering from another image of a sky

                  Is there an advantage in using png over tif format for the saved renderings out of Revit or 3dsMaxD?

                  I've always used tifs and layer masked the Alpha channel, but only because I don't know any better

                    Don´t know if there´s any advantages... I tend to use PNG´s for the simple reason that it´s not a Microsoft file format But i reckon that both .tif and .png will the the trick.
