Re: Invisible emitter that appears to be a glass?

Very, very bad idea. I don't know which software you use but when your main job is architecture design and you use such advanced software as ArchiCAD there is no need for making two files.hatts wrote:joaomourao, trying to stay compliant with BIM working standards, while using Maxwell for visualization, is causing 100% of your struggles.
Just make two files; one with the part numbers, drawings, building materials, etc.; and a 2nd file just used for rendering. Why cause yourself all this pain just so you can build and render from the same file?
One file means every change made in your model is updated in all drawings, quantities, 3d model (rendering too) etc. etc.
Next Limit understand this workflow very well designing ArchiCAD plugin.
Almost everything now could be made inside one file, in my last projects I only add some additional layers for emitters and objects which are visible in renderings only (people trees etc).
I understand Joaomourao wish, If it would be technically possible, AGS mixed with Emitter parameters save my time which I spend for adding additional planes in windows.
