View Full Version : How to render wire frame previews?

11-19-2003, 02:05 PM
I want to render one of those wireframe previews, like those in the WIP section. How do you do that?

I feel kind of stupid asking this question. But I have never done it before. Can someone help me with this?

when you go to render options, on the "Rendering" tab you will see a little scroll box right above your ray-tracing options, it will say "RENDER MODE". You can choose from

1.)Realistic (default)

After selecting wireframe, choose your normal output options, like anim. or pic whatever

What did you mean, if you can be more specific. Or where can i find an example?

Like, a screen capture from modeler? Is that what you mean? In that case just press "print screen" (on your keyboard) and paste the capture into Photoshop.

No, no no. This is what I want. Check out the second image in this thread.

Wireframe (http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=13643)

When I do it the way CMP 2003 describes it, I get a mesh-like wireframe in the same color as the object. I wanna show how my object is built by showing wires and the object at the same time like the picture.

That's just the OpenGL preview window from modeler. Use the "Wire Shade" view.

i know exactly what you mean now.
OK in modeler, Select perspective view and then select wireframe shade in the little arrow next to it. You will need a screen capture program for best results
(there are many free ones at download.com)

Sorry for all the confusion
