I have completed the model and applied the materials, but when I do the render, rendering is not coming properly. I have adjusted the camera, sun position and all.

What could be the issue?
Please anyone help me in this.

Thank you,

Hello Hema Latha,

You create your own surface without modify Maxon texture parameters.
Also you are able to see your model like you wish into Archicad but with CineRender Archicad use other kind of attributes.
There is a shortcut to get Archicad surface parameters into Maxon parameters.

Can you post a screenshot of what you are getting?

When you say "rendering is not coming properly", do you mean that it looks incorrect such as wrong materials, or that it is only rendering part of the image?

OS? ArchiCAD version? Computer specs?

Here is the image attached, before and after rendering, These are the downloaded 3d objects.
I have changed the color, but in rendering its coming as grey.

Thank you,

The materials (surfaces) you see while working in Archicad use the OpenGL (Basic) settings as set in the surface settings.
When you render, it uses the Cinerender settings for those surfaces.
If you are changing the OpenGL/Basic settings, you also have to switch to the Cinerender settings and make the same changes there.

This can get a little complicated as the Cinerender settings are much more complex than the OpenGL/Basic ones.
There is a 'Match Settings' button - but be aware that this will reset the Cinerender settings to the very simple ones used in the OpenGL/Basic settings.

NOTE: you can also set the OpenGL/Basic settings to match the Cinerender ones if you want to.

If you have amended the Cinerender settings and it is still rendering as grey, then there must be a setting in the Photorendering settings that is affecting this.
Offhand I can't think what it would be.
Try different rendering scenes to see if that makes a difference.
