    hi Adam


    Thanks for getting back - I have an account locked to my private email, and via that I'm able to test Sefaira.

    What I find out for now - is that we actually need to have two models, one "real" model, and a very simple model for lightning analysis.


    I think I need to spend some time looking into this. I don't know of predesign service included with pro?

    Thanks Adam


    I just downloaded the plugin via your link - got it installed, but was told that I "Sefaira invalid license, You do not have access to Sefaira at this time".


    I first searched via the plugin browser in Sketchup - I could not find it there... then I tried to download the Studio Trial, but it seems that I have already tried the 2021 trail :-/


    I have asked Trimble how I can test Sefaira.


    Are you using Sefaira?

    Thanks to your both.


    We do have a Revit suit, and 3ds max is included, but we have no one that uses it, but I we might need to look into that.

    Do you have a specific reason to turn down Autodesk Insight? (not that I'm impressed but it)


    And yes - some services are hard to get paid for, but it seems that daylight might become a demand here in Denmark, so that's why we are starting to look into that, and if we can do while we design, it could be a plus for us.


    We have Sketchup Pro licenses, but no Studio versions - I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to try a trail version.

    Thanks for the input snowyweston


    Ladybug could be interesting - we use Revit and Sketchup. And it seems that Ladybug can be used with Revit / Dynamo - do you have any experience with that?

    Hi


    We see an upcoming demand for daylight analysis, and I would like to hear is any users in here, that has experience regarding this topic?

    We need to prove that a least half the floor area in a room, has more than 300 lux, in at least half the day. For this I thought that Enscapes light view mode could be used.


    I have done a light study in using Enscape and Sketchup, but I find it difficult to know if the analyse that is shown is reliable, and I'm not sure if I should use the automatic scale or manual set the scale?

    When I export the image / movie the light scale is not included noir is the time of day - so its not that usefull. Is where a supposed way to use the light study / does anyone use it?


    ps. I can't upload the clip I created, I get an "the file extension is invalid", so I need to use dropbox.

    Hi


    The automatic naming feature is really nice - especially when I need to create a lot of different shots from different angles and layers turned on and off.


    One thing I really miss though - the possibility to add a custom prefix like 20201020 so the files could be named like 20202010 164251 or similar - and you are welcome to skip the Enscape_ :)


    Should be easy to do ^^

    Hi


    I wonder if anyone can guide me to how to insert assests in the right hight?


    I would like to place some assets on a table, but I can't figure out how to place them in the right height - I have tried to set the reference plane on the tabletop, but all assets is still inserted on the floor :-(


    Anyone know how to do it right / if it's possible?

    Hi Robertpolk


    I know what I can do with alpha, depth material id maps, but what I would prefer is just a png with the alpha channel in the file - and as you say, it won't work for windows.


    It really makes things easier just having one layer in photoshop, especally when i need to scale the layer to fit into a photo, not a really big deal, and I can live without it, but it would make things easier.
