Default Twinmotion 2018 - Questions & Solutions

Hello.

I created this thread in order to express our questions and get answers, about the new Twinmotion 2018 and how it works.

For example, I wonder if there is a way to see the scene we have created as a plan view.

Thank you for your response, but most of the times the Abvent forum is not enough. If you can learn more with the support of another group, there is no reason to try to find information just from Abvent. The response here is faster and you can get more opinions about a subject.

Default TM2018 vs UE4 Beta - a viable option to follow ?

TM2018 vs UE4 Beta - a viable option to follow ?


In the Twinmotion -Forum quite an interesting question was raised (by Bimarchi):
why Twinmotion ??? - if Unreal Engine UE4 (Beta) is able to import quite a number of CAD formats and environments ?,,,,,,but read for yourself.......................................

TwinMotion et UnrealEngine ???

Link(s):
 
https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/beta

could be quite interesting to follow that path directly and leaving behind the bug-ridden, immature TM 2018 ???

Can somebody tell me, if you can change the background image, with an image of my choice? Not a HDRI image.

Unfortunately not. In their webinar (in French) the guy mentioned that this feature is planned, but not currently available.

@dongyeon,
there is no water material, you can only find cube or cylinder volumes for water, pick that from library, volumes, water and drop it in
your scene and adjust to fit you pool.

Anything about the 2sided material issue?

When importing a model, skp or rvt or anything else, glass color has 2 instances in the materials pane, like GLASS_00 and GLASS_01, though in the model it's only 1 GLASS color.
