Hello dear Specklers,
it seems that the Preview images from Revit look a bit mushy compared to the rest. This is from a stream we uploaded a few months ago.
Archicad (a few weeks ago)
Older Revit Stream (I believe it was the beginning of the year) → which was actually good enough regarding sharpness … added that for comparison
It is more a papercut topic, but something may be worth polishing a bit
Hmm, it seems that older models have a sharper look. I’ll inquire with the team and get back to you. Thank you for your patience!
No worries it is not an alive or dead situation Just wanted you guys to know
Hey there! I just had a chat with the team and wanted to share some updates with you. So, we’ve made a decision to use only the dynamic AO for generating previews in the preview service. This would mean that we’ll be using half-resolution and low-quality AO.
We did consider enabling progressive AO, but it could significantly increase the image generation time since it doesn’t render the image on a GPU. However, we believe that the current setup is “good enough” in terms of meeting our requirements.
But, @AlexHofbeck we are hear to learn of your use-cases. Have you been using the preview service as-a-service for things external to the Speckle UI?
I have certainly heard from enough developers asking what the end-point is to guess that there are external uses we don’t fully know about.
for now, it is only the frontend itself and the impression of how it looks when people see their models in this low-res. For developments we currently don’t have a use-case.
