The process of uploading an image and designing it is called Masking in your Renoworks Pro Visualizer. The Masking process takes place under the “Draw” tab. Before applying products to your clients home, you must mask the image to define various layers of the home. 

Before you get started, keep in mind that the software works in layers – what you mask first will appear as the bottom most layer. After that, each mask will go on top of the previous layer.

This rule applies to everything except doors and windows. They will appear on top of all the layers (except foreground) automatically. We recommend that you plan the order in which you will do the Masking before you get started. Eventually this will become second nature!

It can look something like this:

  • Siding
  • Masonry
  • Roof
  • Trim
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Foreground

A few things that will be good to know when you start:

  • To mask an area you have to first select the category it fits under
  • To start masking you will have to draw around the perimeter of an area clicking every time you want to change direction and ending where you started to complete a layer
  • Every point you clicked on to change direction is movable, so don’t worry if your lines aren’t straight

The Perspective tool lets the software know the angle of any surface. You need to set perspective for all siding and roofing. Any surface that is sloping or slanting.

The perspective tool is the most important tool while working on any elements with an angle (sloping or slanted). You must ALWAYS set perspective to siding and roofing layers. This tool allows your visualizer to know what angle the element is in and how close or further away it might be from where the photo was taken.

 

The Roof shingles are not applying correctly becasue the Perspective on the layer is most likely wrong. Read about the Perspective tool, also learn when to use the Perspective tool here. Your shingles won’t apply correctly until you fix or set the right perspective. To access the tool for that layer go to the “Draw” tab and click on the layer that the shingles don’t look correct. When you click on the layer, a new set of options will appear on your left and one of them should be ‘Set Perspective’
