Meeting Notes      June 12, 2013

We met at the beautiful new computer lab at the beautiful new Wood Technology Center campus.  Many thanks to Katie for making the space available and helping us get the files loaded, iMacs on line, and generally making the meeting work.  Many thanks to all of you who spent a warm Seattle evening working on renderings.

We covered a lot of territory while exploring several kinds of image backgrounds.  The techniques and functionality are very similar in earlier versions back to Vectorworks 12.5.3.  The file we worked with is available for download through 06/24 in v2013 and v2008 at this Dropbox link:

(or contact Benson).

Attached find pdf meeting notes with detailed outline of processes, techniques, and comparative advantages of the image backgrounds we worked with:

Billboards (flat and surround)

Standard Renderworks Backgrounds from images

HDRI Renderworks Backgrounds from images
