[WARNING: SUSPICIOUS LINK] RE: rendering of glass


Please be EXTREMELY careful about one or more of the links in the
message below.

The Berkeley Lab Computer Protection Program inserted this warning
because the email appears to contain a suspicious link.

For more information, see this Berkeley Lab web page:


I would first check your model for coplanar surfaces. Maybe your box shaped room does not have a hole cut out where the glass is inserted?

I am trying to use radiance for visualising the illuminance at the workplane of a simple classroom model developed in ecotect. I am calling radiance from ecotect. Further I will use DAYSIM for detailed calculation of UDI and DC. I have downloaded RADIANCE for windows from http://www.arch.mcgill.ca/prof/reinhart/software/Radiance3P7forWindows.zip. I have used the materials library from http://irc.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/ie/lighting/daylight/daysim/docs/NRC_LightingLibrarySetup.exe. However the image I am getting after rendering is pretty weird. It seems that the glass has not been properly rendered. I have set all the rendering options to medium. Even with high quality specification and ecotect libraries (glass material other than the link previously mentioned), I am getting the same result. Further when I am importing the .rad file to daysim the glass seems to be having some problem. Please find the image of the room after render attached and let me know how I can solve this problem.

Thank you
