Hi all - it's been a while!


Okay, I'm modeling a house, and I've run into this before but never asked about it. When I set up my guide images, the lines are chunky and unreliable for accurately positioning anything.


Is there any way to get this to be a fairly clear image that I can use for positionaing planes and points/polygons?


I'm running C4D 9.6 (I know - get with the times, already!!) on Win7, using a nVidia GTX 460 graphics card (in case this can only be done with FireGL or QuadroFX cards).


Thanks in advance for any help you can figure out!


-Lew

Try changing the texture preview size for each of your blueprints in the Material Editor. Under "Illumination" in the Material Editor you can select the preview quality/size of the image used.


Unfortunately, I can't provide a screenshot right now as I don't have C4D at work. Also, I'm not sure if this option can be found under "Illumination" in R9 or whether it was hidden elsewhere in the Material Editor back then. 

Cheers
