Subdivision for Displacement

Anonymous
Not applicable
When Archicad subdivides material it creates long triangles that resemble a "broken mirror". Advanced rendering software packages like Thea Render and Maxwell require subdivided triangles or squares that have close to equal sides to accurately and efficiently generate displacement maps for materials.

I have had similar problem to those expressed in this post.

This is clearly an Archicad deficiency since other modeling software packages take this into consideration and are therefore more highly regarded than Archicad in the Thea Render forums.

в некоторых случаях помогает SubdivisionModifier
Удачи!
и эта проблема не Архикада, а Максвелла после версии 2.6

Sorry alex b, this is an English language forum.
Please make all post in english.

This is what I got from Bing translator.
in some cases, helps SubdivisionModifierGood luck!and the problem is not Maxwell's and Arhikada after version 2.6
I still don't understand it but it doesn't appear to be spam so I haven't deleted the post.

use SubdivisionModifier at Maxwell Studio
and this problem Maxwell after v. 2.6
Good Luck!

the problem is very topical because in excellent Visualizer well visible all imitation.
in nature there is almost no smooth surfaces

It's not archicad's problem. The rendering engine is the one that should make the subdivision at rendertime. If it doesn't, then either you haven't learn how to use it or it has bugs.
For such textures you should use bump mapping, it's much faster and it looks the same.

I will soon share this material and textures. Article containing that is ready however waiting on Graphisoft for something. What's more, to help Graphisoft/Next limit conjunction with this issue; Maxwell needs more polygons to properly extract displacement then usually in walls, slabs and other in Archicad are generated. Certain tool to transform or recognise automatically Maxwell engine is needed.
