In the case of texture maps only (excluding shaders), the way to make textures appear similar in OpenGL and in the LightWorks engine is to start by placing the material in the material dialog for the ArchiCAD Internal engine. This is the place OpenGL refers to when making a texture.

Explained on page 9 of my book.

Then you use the "Match Internal..." button to establish the texture in LightWorks.

But of course, it flips the texture, so you must flip it back.

This is detailed on page 114 of my book

BTW: The rendering engines DO work differently, so they will always differ in appearance. Also OpenGL cannot mirror textures.

you are right i do it like you say i see it in internal and then match in lightworks but it doesnt match at least it didnt
i checked it out and i made it thanks a lot

can i ask sth about your book?
i wanted to find for a long time a book for lightworks and materials and lights

do you think that i should improve my renders in lightworks or i should learn artlantis better?
with your book in lightworks my render would be better than rendered in artlantis?
im sorry if i ask stupid questions.

can you tell me also where can i find your book?

thanks a lot againa dwight
you helped me a lot these days
really thanks

Artlantis ultimately provides better lighting and render quality, but is crippled by rudimentary material definitions.

It will soon offer animation capabilities that provide sophisticated camera controls. I think it is better for occasional renderings because it gives quicker feedback when you make a change.

LightWorks is already in ArchiCAD and is properly connected to internal material definitions. I think it is better in making design development images as the design evolves.

Neither approach is automatic - it takes a long time to become expert.

If you want to be a professional illustrator, neither application is adequate. Look to Cinema 4D, LightWave and Electric Image - Max, even.

You can order my book using the international PAYPAL.
See the bottom of this image for the amount and payee.
