hi this is John from Revit for interior designers today I wanted to dress a very common question how to adjust rendering quality on the cloud let's take a look let's get started here is a sample perspective I set up in Revit I'd like to create a nice-looking rendering from this original image if I go to render button here under the View tab I can produce of rendering inside of Revit I typically choose the absolute poorest quality for the settings here draft because I wanted images to be generated as quickly as possible because I may be doing many of these and and reviewing those in progress renderings to confirm that the objects in my scene are appropriate I'm forgetting the materials like where the lighting is for example so it's a render button can I wait approximately 30 seconds for the running to get produced the idea is that you produce many of these and you test them for quality to make sure your your objects are in the right place you got the right material soft board here's an error message of the material missing and I'll show you how to resolve that in a second but because you're doing so many of these once it's this process to go very fast and let them have this process I'll take advantage of the Autodesk 360 club here I can return to the model or go back to that preview rendering as you can see it's very pixelated along these edges here where the shadows are landing on top of the work surface now that I've got the test images ready and I can confirm that the images contain the appropriate models materials so on and so forth then what I'll do is I'll create a nicer quality image well I'll take advantage of the Autodesk 360 cloud service the error mentioned we saw earlier can be handed here under file options rendering and using this plus sign here you can add a directory here using this little directory menu here and point to the folders continue your materials those custom materials that you downloaded off the internet and that you'd like to use in your project not the rabbit materials that you get from the Revit library but anything custom that you've downloaded and brought into your project for the sake of a rendering point to those folders and you will not get an error message when rendered separated whether it be on your computer or in the cloud so here is the rendering and cloud what it does is it uploads your project to the Autodesk 360 rendering service the cloud there take the copy of your project and produces the renderings and on that site you can take those renders and make them a better quality the winter cloud button here I can follow these steps it continued and here I'll choose again a very low quality rendering I will choose the the absolute smallest image size because I want to be produced quickly notice here that it's going to cost these zero credits the idea is this colleges 360 offers a pool of credits currently there's 16 credits available for students that may change in the future we have a pool of credits every render you produce requires credits or to grab this menu here and simply choose maximum number of credits it's going to cost eight credits to producers rendering in the past 16 credits have been the max so once the credits are depleted you can no longer produce any renderings but when the renders are completed though credits will be returned to you so they'll get recycled you can use them again for more projects but again I want to make sure that I can see a draft of the rendered before I go to a high quality so I'll use small and I'll use a render here and that will begin to send the product to the cloud I'm going to cancel this there's a warning that the materials are missing locally and we resolved that earlier I'm going to cancel this and I will take a look at renders that are already produced in the cloud you must be logged into your a360 account here you can visit students autodesk.com and register for a free account you can also access software for a free period of three years to basically learn AutoCAD Revit what have you and other products offered by Autodesk so to visit renders I've already sent to the cloud I simply use the render and gallery button here so if I choose that button it'll launch this website here where I'll have a tray of images for the current project I'm working on some of these images I've completed and I've made better renderings so for example this I can see here under the info button that shows that this image is 300 by 2400 and this is measured in pixels image size when it comes to the quality of rendering everything is about image size in terms of pixels it's really important to remember this is the first draft of the rendering of this project see that it is pixelated along these edges it's a little quality draft but it was produced pretty fairly quickly the rear under button here that allows me to improve the quality of this image without requiring rabbit notice I'm no longer in rabbit I'm simply visiting a website so remotely from your smart phone laptop tablet what have you you can actually improve the quality of these drafts on the cloud so to begin this process it requires a little math and the formula is simple printed size times resolution results in the quality of your image resolution is basically measured in pixel per inch or dots per inch once you know how big the printed size is going to be a physical hard copy in your hand how big does that image want to be and you then you multiply that by the resolution desire so 70 2.4 inch equals a poor-quality if will suffice for digital use of viewing them on images on your computer using them on websites in a PDF file what have you if your viewing them on your computer monitor 72 dots per inch typically works just fine but when you actually want to print the image and see a higher quality image at a larger size you typically want anywhere between 200 at the bottom end for a better quality image - 300 for the best possible image and then simply at the math project eight-by-ten image at 300 dots per inch that results in eight times 300 or twenty four hundred pixels and ten times 300 which is three thousand pixels that's the information that is key to producing quality renderings on the cloud or actually any software program so here on the Autodesk cloud I'll use the rear under button here and simply here under the width and height under custom I will enter the desired pixel dimensions I want ask the appropriate dpi and in this case 2400 by 3000 so three thousand here via a height of 2400 and no notice here is you have to unbind these two together unlink them to be able to change one without the other here you simply choose the final quality here I believe all the other aspects of the same and a new seals take seven credits in my account to produce his image he'll be it'll be done in under ten minutes on your computer it might take a very deal longer again it's based on the quality of your your process or your hardware and what have you that will might take minutes that might take hours depending on what it is if you're using at home or the office render button here we'll send this to get rear-ended what hap
Thanks Candie your participation is very much appreciated
