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
Tag: Layers

To make optimal use of the software, you must keep in mind that layers drawn first will appear the furthest back in an image. Eg. If you mask siding then mask trim, the trim will appear on top of the siding. However, if you masked the trim before the siding, the trim will appear behind the siding.

The best way to correct this is to Delete the trim layer and remask it so it appears on top of the siding. This rule applies to everything except doors, windows and foreground. Doors and windows will always the top most layer even if you mask them last. Foreground sits on top of everything.

The Renoworks Pro Visualizer works in layers (link). As a good practice we recommend you follow the layers rule and mask the windows and doors last, however, this rule applies to everything except windows and doors and you can mask them at any point of the masking process.

Tag: Layers

The foreground tool is used when something is obstructing the structure you are masking eg. Trees, mail boxes, bushes, fences, light bulbs, flowerpots  etc.. The foreground will act as the topmost layer of the design. The foreground tool allows you to mask anything that your visualizer should keep on top of the image. We suggest zooming into the object you want to mask as foreground so you can really concentrate on the details clicking as many times as you need to change direction to define the shape of the object you are trying to make foreground.

 

 

Use the Perspective tool to apply products on sloping and slanting surfaces. Learn about the Perspective tool and how to use it. To fix this, you will need to look at the perspective(link) of the layer when you come across an issue like this. To fix this,

  1. Go back to the draw tab
  2. Click on the siding surface you have masked.
  3. On the left you will see a “Set Perspective” button. Click on that and make sure you have set the right perspective.
