Why are images or textures blurred or pixelated?

You inserted a floor plan as an image and it appears blurred or pixelated.

pCon.planner will display images and textures up to a maximum resolution of 2048×2048 pixels in good quality. If you insert an image larger than this, the program will undercalculate the resolution and the image may no longer appear clear. The display depends on the content of the image. Fine lines, for example, are more affected than colored areas. Floor plans, in particular, should therefore be imported in a suitable resolution. This restriction works to keep the size of the plan low, saving both internal and graphics memory.

What does the use of Ambient Light in pCon.planner 7.3 mean for my older plans?

In pCon.planner 7.3, the Ambient Light (Start tab, Room Elements menu) is used as a standard light source. Plans that were created in pCon.planner 7.2 or an earlier version will still contain the old standard lighting, which consisted of several directional light sources.

If you open an older plan, it will still contain the old standard lighting and all additional light sources. The Ambient Light Intensity will automatically be set to 0%. The original lighting therefore remains 1:1.

The Insert Unit indicates the unit of measure in which objects should be inserted. You can change this by clicking on the Application Menu, choosing Document Properties and switching to the Settings tab. Changes pertain to the current plan.

The correct Insert Unit is important if you are editing plans from other CAD programs.

The Standard Scaling Unit – also known as the Scaling Unit – is necessary when you want to insert objects of an unknown scale. The Length Unit describes the standard when inputting the measure of length. The Insert Unit has an effect when you want to use plans created in another CAD program. Click on the respective unit for more detailed information.

It is likely that you installed the free version of pCon.planner. To check, look at the top (on the title bar) of the program window. There you can read whether the currently-installed edition is pCon.planner (the free version) or pCon.planner PRO (the professional edition). Please bear in mind that a data connection in the free version of pCon.planner is not possible.

Why don’t I see my desired image after rendering?

You generate an Image or a Video. The media output dialog opens and you do not see your desired image. Instead, you see a single-colored area or a completely different picture.

When needed, pCon.planner provides the opportunity to add a company logo or other graphics to your images and videos. In the described situation, it is possible the function Show Logo is enabled. If the Size of the logo is still set at 100% (or bigger) and Transparent is disabled, the logo will be placed on top of your image.

Measurements in pCon.planner are automatically based on the current Insert Unit. If you would like to view the dimensions in a different unit – without changing the Insert Unit – proceed as follows: Switch to the Edit tab on the Ribbon. Open the Dimension Styles dialog. Adjust the Unit for your current dimension style (available in both the free and PRO versions of pCon.planner).
