We've just barely discovered the option to turn on global illumination in our BimX models. I really changes the way the model looks, for the better.
Some sample BimX models I have seen have GI turned on by default. I have to enter the BimX, go into settings and turn it on from the default "headlight".
How do you set GI as a default??
The help memu states;
When the hyper-model is exported from ARCHICAD Headlight render mode will be set by default if there is no Global Illumination (GI) and the model will open with this render mode. If GI is set in ARCHICAD for the model, then Global Illumination render mode will be selected when the model is opened for viewing.
I don't understand where to set GI in the ArchiCAD model itself. Any help?
GS Tech support figured it out. Even if you have downloaded the latest BIMx viewer, on my Mac it was still opening the BIMx file with an old version of the viewer. You simply had to right click on it and tell it to open with the newer version, then select the option to always open it with that version.
