1. New Software Notice alert!

    The new Web Graphics Creator (version 4.0) will be out soon.

    For now, version 3.0 is still active and works great on most Windows machines. It no longer runs on Macs using Lion or greater... (but the new version will fix this)

    So hang in there! It's almost done!

    It was working fine... and now when I go to render it doesn't create the graphic with the shadow or reflection - I just get the eCover Graphic alone.

    Is there a setting I tripped that I need to reset? Or what else might be happening?

    Thanks! :image28:

    If you are working in the "Photorealistic" module click on the tools and look at "environment" and see if the features you want are turned on. The others I don't recall any way to customize shows on reflections.

    Photorealistic... no I don't think so.

    I'm in the Web Graphics Creator/eBook Creator...

    I'm...

    Creating an eCover complete with Shadow and Reflection...

    I "click to save current view to disk"...

    Render Image to Current View to File..

    4X Anti-Aliasing

    JPEG High Quality

    ...Render.

    What it's done up until now is created the jpg complete with Shadow and Reflection..

    Now I just get the eCover without them.

    Hi imCoach.

    Yes, KD is correct.
    In the very section you're speaking of below, check the "Environments" section in the pop up menu.

    You can righ-click on the 3D box to bring up this menu.
    Make sure "show floor, Show shadow or show reflection is checked (on)

    Yep.. I had done that. I checked them.. and unchecked them and checked them again.

    Still renders without the shadow or reflection. Looks like my shadow/reflect days are sadly coming to an end.

    If anyone has any more ideas, let them fly. Maybe I need a reinstall or something - caught a bug.
