PhotoLux Render Issues

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

8GB RAM

NVIDIA GT 550M

Creo Elements Pro 5.0

Every time I try to render using PhotoLUX, the result is a solid black screen. I can render using PhotoRender but the quality isn't that great.

I have tried every scene, moving floors/walls/etc, adjusting lights, adjusting effects...all with the same result.

I have tried Draft to Maximum quality. Output Full Window to JPEG to TIF...all the rendered files are solid black. It's driving me insane! I've followed as many tutorials as I can...step by step, but my result is solid black as opposed to the tutorials results of a completely rendered model.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Have any Ideas?

It's driving me insane!

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

Ok everyone...I finally figured it out. It was McAfee Internet Security. Not sure how it blocked it but as soon as I uninstalled McAfee, the rendering works perfectly.

Wish I knew this from the get go.

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

That´s weird you should check maybe your materials, i recomend to use only PhotoLUX scenes and materials (the last ones), your computer is perfect.

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

I went back to check all my materials...and I am using PhotoLUX visual styles and am using a PhotoLUX scene.

It's frustrating because I'm following all the instructions i can find online and it still is not working. I'll post a picture of what it looks like when I render a small section.

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

Here are some screenshots that may help anyone determine what settings I have wrong...or what else I need to look at.

This all started when I went to create a nice little Happy New Year impage for the company I work for. Now it's becoming a mission to figure this out.

When I do just a Render Region, below is what I get. If I render it completely, then the entire output is black.

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

Everithing is ok but i see the quality on draft

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

Also try "render to" .jpg or other kind of pictures extensions and chek that the model isn´t below the floor

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

I have it set to Draft right now it doesn't take so long to test. I have tried High & Maximum.

Also, I have set my output to New Window, JPEP, TIF, PNG...pretty much every option. They all turn out solid black.

What is weird is that even though the picture file is solid black, the file size is HUGE!

I really don't know what to do. So frustrating!

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

Totally weird be carefull that the model is above the floor

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

I hit the button to align the floor to the bottom of the model.

I made that mistake once while using Photorender.

Re: PhotoLux Render Issues

Or the face of the model is with the floor on front
