Rendering to a Colorway Template
This video shows you how to render from Modo to a Colorway template, which is populated with the .dci file, colors, materials, dynamic tables, callouts, or other dynamic information.
In the video:
• To create a Colorway template:
|1.||Set up your scene in Modo and tag your items, lights, and views, then Render it for Colorway.|
|2.||In Colorway, create a new project, then save it as a template, using the menu bar command File > Save as...|
|3.||Navigate to your newly created project on your disk and add a new folder within the main project folder. Name it GeneratedFiles.|
|4.||Within GeneratedFiles, create a folder called renders.|
Note: You should name your folders exactly as described above for the template to work.
|5.||Place the .dci files you rendered from Modo into the renders folder.|
|6.||Open your Colorway project, and in the menu bar, click LiveSources > Source Browser.|
|7.||On the bottom-left, expand the Project section to see your folders. Click GeneratedFiles > renders, and drag and drop your items onto the sheet, and add dynamic tables, callouts, and so on.|
• If you change the geometry in Modo and you want the changes to be automatically reflected in Colorway:
|1.||In the Render layout > Colorway tab, go to the Render Settings sub-tab and enable Create Colorway Project.|
|2.||Set the template you created in Colorway As Project Template.|
|3.||Make sure that the Render Name Template stays exactly the same as before.|
|4.||Click Render and set a new location to your project.|
|5.||When you open your new project in Colorway, it uses the same colors, materials, tables, and callouts, as the template project.|
