lighting in camera views is different plan to plan


Recommended Posts

I am working in Home Designer Interiors. This is a kitchen design project.


I duplicated  floor plan #1 via "save as" to make some minor changes to the lay out, call it plan #2


When I open a camera view on plan #1, there is good reflective light coming off of the ceiling and the rendered view is excellent.



When I open a camera view plan #2, there is no reflective light coming off of the ceiling, and the quality of the rendered view is lower.



There is no lighting fixture in either plan and I made no changes to default any settings as far as I know. I opened both cameras and the settings on them are identical.


Any idea on how I can get the same reflective light on plan #2 as on plan#1?


One would think that if the reflective light is on one plan, it could be on both, but I am at a loss-------




here is another view of the light source I can't control or identify

I don't have Interiors, so can only guess, but there may be settings in Preferences and/or Defaults that change the lighting. 


Some titles have a Brighten Ceiling (or something similar) checkbox, which may not be checked in plan #2.




It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.
