Creo 4.0 Render Test

I had some trouble getting a decent looking render of our robot this past season. PTC made some changes to the render package with Creo 4.0 and I kept getting some strange effects in the render.

I decided to build a test model and try different settings. The file FullSimulationCloseup.jpg shows the artifacts I'm talking about. It was run with "Full Simulation" selected. I even ran it for 3 hours to be sure it had time to generate a good image.

The file Settings.jpg shows the settings I ended up with. I selected Full Simulation and then turned off Caustics and Interior Mode - they were the two settings messing up the render.

FinalRenderTest.jpg shows the model rendered with these settings.

Re: Creo 4.0 Render Test

Hey, this is tangentially related, but could you explain why your team decided to use Creo as a CAD program? I've heard from several people that it is more intended for applications different from robotics and it seems like a curious choice.

The biggest reason is that I use Creo in my day job. It works fine for robotics - the students pick it up quickly.

Re: Creo 4.0 Render Test

Thank you for taking the time to look at this! This has been something very frustrating to me about the new rendering system.
