Exit Portal Help!!

Post by Jelko » Thu Aug 20, 2015 2:06 am

I am new to exit portals and can't seem to figure out how they work. I don't see the option to check like in the simple tutorial found here http://www.indigorenderer.com/documenta ... s-sketchup

Check out my screen shot and see if you know what I'm doing incorrectly, thanks in advance.

Jelko,

Assigning Exit Portals as a mesh attribute was only a short lived thing... It is now (as it was before) a material attribute. Just paint all your exit portal with the same material in SketchUp and then chose 'exit portal' in the material type drop down menu. Just make sure your exit portal are facing into the scene, i.e. you can see the painted side in your camera shot.

These tutorials should either be updated or removed if they are providing incorrect information.

Thanks, and I did read something about that with someone saying it was more intuitive.. but I was trying to be more logical and had to trust the tutorial..
thanks for the quick response!
