    Black walls in rendering

    Please help! I'm rendering the pavilion in the cloud and although all the wall materials are the same (some material which I created my image), on some of the walls it appears totally black without any texture. I checked all the light settings and it's not becasue of that...

    When you say the materials are the same, do you mean the walls that are rendering black are the same type as those that aren't?

    I ask because you flag two (related) possible causes; one you're using the cloud render, two you've created your own material. Why? The Cloud renderer, IIRC, doesn't much care for custom-made materials (meaning materials using image files saved on your computer/network aren't accessible).

    But that's only the "obvious" answer if the ones that are rendering black are exactly the same as the ones that aren't rendering correctly with the hexagonal pattern.

    Question is, how does it render using the native Revit rendering engine? (throw a quick draft test at it, no need to waste your time with a high quality one)

    And welcome to the forum!

    Hey yes all the walls have the same material which I created by image... Can I somehow make this image "more accesible" for the cloud? In normal rendering in revit its not black but the quality is a disaster even if i put 300px

    can you show us a screen shot of the material editor for those materials?
