If your project contains windows or holes (always important when rendering the scene, as the sun light is a crucial component for a wonderful rendering image) it may be useful to let customers seeing a real image of the outside.
For this purpose you can open the navigation window, move the point of view so that you can see the window and the outside, click the Background button available in the Navigation group of the Ribbon and choose a background panoramic image.
Once you click one of the available backgrounds you can immediately see the image outside the window:
move the slider in order to rotate the background as you need. Backgrounds, in fact, usually are panoramic images that allow you seeing 360° views. You can find some backgrounds right after installation, or download new ones from the Catalogue section in the Live! page.
Backgrounds are .dds files (stored in the …\DomuS3D\Bitmap\Backgrounds folder), and you can add your own backgrounds by copying .dds, .png or .jpg files in such folder, or by selecting a new working folder for backgrounds using the '…' button. In case you use .jpg or .png format, you will not be able to rotate the background, and it will be fixed in the scene.
In the background window, as you can see in the image on the left, each background made available by Maticad in the Catalogues (download) section of the Live! page comes now with its own preview, so that you can see it in its entirety.
Moreover, for each background you can specify the related Exposure value; in this way the quality of the background will increase using the new versions of the rendering engines.
