in 2008, 2009, and 2010 you could turn on ambient occlusion in any scene. it doesn't work in 2011. What happened?
Ah, I vaguely remember that. All those screen shots were pre-PV360 embedded in SolidWorks. It works fine in 2010 and is there in 2011. I had to download the reg files from the Labs site and merge them in. Not sure if it works good yet, but the setting is there. I'm on SP3.
Make sure Shadows in Shded Mode is turned on.
What do you mean it doesn't work? Ambient Occlusion is my base scene for all models. I love turning Shadows in Shaded mode on with it.
With the above hack (in 2010) you could turn on ambient occlusion in the "light cards" scene. I would like to be able to do that in 2011. Or, really, the backdrop - studio room scene.
I guess I'm not following you or didn't about the hack you're mentioning. I do remember adjusting my registry for the ambient occlusion scene some time ago. Can you provide anymore details for me to test?
Heh, of course.
It is now under the "advanced" tab.
