    Low quality rendering

    Hello,

    I have about a 1200 sq. meter building (2 stories). The rendering is all OK but the final quality of the image is very low even if I use the option of "Best" quality and use the paper Output Setting with 600 DPI.

    I want to show the result on a big file with a high resolution (high quality).
    I use Revit 2010.

    Thanks for your help.

    Make sure your view crop region is the size you want your final print. If you render a 3"x2" 3D view at 600dpi, it'll only be 1800x1200 final resolution. If it's at 8"x10", it'll be 4200x6000.

    Also, adjust the exposure afterwards. I can't remember if it's available in 2010, but if it is, use it. It should be in the rendering dialogue box, just under where you set the background style.

    Hello need4mospd and dzatto and thanks for your replies.

    regarding the crop region - it is in the size to include all the building so I do not want to change it (hope I understand you right).
    I want to be able to see the daetils of the wall meterials and the plants all is not clear right now and the resolution is low.

    I just edited the render quality and changed the precision from 8 to 10. not sure if this will solve my problem - I plan to dsiplay the picture on a 60X40 cm right now I can only show a very small picture (about 15X10 cm)

    regarding the exposure, I could not find any parameter in that place that may have impact on the precision or the resolution of the output.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I wasn't sure if it was in 2010 or not. That was 3 releases ago! I can't remember what I had for breakfast this morning

    As for the crop size that need4mospeed was referring to, I think that's the problem you are having. Open up your camera view. Now, there should be a crop box around the view. You may have it turned off. If so, at the bottom of the view, there's a little icon to the right of the render teapot icon. Make sure that light bulb is on.
    Anyway, select that crop region. Now, in the ribbon, you should see a tool at the end called Size Crop. Select that to open the dialogue box. In the middle, select Scale (locked proportions) and then change the width to the width you want it to be, which is 60cm. Now, the entire view will scale up proportionately.

    OR

    If you want it exactly 60X40, leave the default Field of View selected and change each number to what you want. Keep in mind that this method will actually change the crop region to be 60X40.

    Now, you can render it at the appropriate size.
