    Rendering Bird's Eye View

    I am trying to create an emblessished bird's eye view. I have a large building in which my view will be from 120' in the air, looking down, BUT I want the shot to show beyond the building a tree line and sky landscape - which in actuality wouldn't be visible from that angle. I think they call that artistic license? At any rate, I've read some posts about pasting images on geometry, etc. beyond, but was curious on two counts:

    1. what is your suggestion for creating bird's eye images where you to manipulate the background, and
    2. is there a treeline rpc family out there that is fairly lightweight, yet renders well - and quickly. (I may be better off asking for a pot of gold at the end of my rainbow)

    Thank you for your responses,

    Jeff

    Is there anyway you can provide some sort of sketch or vignette of what you want to achieve?
    I'm having a hard time understading exactly how you want to compose your image

      Hi Jeff, and welcome to the forum!

      1. I´ve never done this, but if you can find a tree line dome, like these sky domes you could reverse the sky dome technique, and create a dome sitting under your building like a bowl (makes any sense ?)
      2. I´m afraid that you´ll have a better chance of finding that pot of gold

        Thank you for the welcome Klaus. Can you point me to the technique for using sky domes in Revit?

        Juan...no, I really don't have a sketch, but essantially what I'm trying to do is get around the issue with Revit where it places the horizon line in the background without placing hundreds of trees to obscure it. A treeline RPC would be great.

          oh I see, I guess you could always change in option in the render dialog background to color instead of sky and then just comp in the rest in photoshop or equivalent ( make sure its a color that contrasts a lot with your model for easy selection) I tipically use Magenta or similar

            That is a great idea. And this web side has some neet texture maps! :thumbsup:

            jgfry,

            We have were we lucky enough to work with a Autodesk for a pilot project on a game like rendering engine for Revit models and we worked on these types of domes. The Program is on Labs but i am not sure you and down load it quit yet, it imports this type of domes as it background so that you can see it from all angles. Check Labs its called Newport.

            We used these types of domes before to achive still rendering view looking up at a buildng and as this might not work in Revit's rendering engine porperly as a background. For sure thou you can export your rendering in to as PNG format and place these types of domes it in photo shop as a background. I should look awesome! :thumbsup:

                Youre going to struggle with finding free RPC, since Archvision controls most of that realm. Even if someone sent you the RPC, without the ACM it wouldnt work. If you have RPC, just nest a few of them in a Line Based Generic Model family sporadically, group, array, and draw it around the site?

                (To be fair, ive never nested RPC in something else, ive never had a need. So im not even sure you can do it...)

                  But the ACM is free... At least for subscription clients it is. I have it, never paid for it (and it's legal).
