    To IMSI :

                     I got an idea !   Trash TFP Version 17 !!!!!!     It's not worth $99.  I'm going to be using Version 16.

Or you could use Version 18 - available from CadSoft - known as Personal Architect V4!

I don't know what has gone on between CadSoft and IMSI, but IMSI are definitely the losers in all this - no right minded person is going to use V17 (which is a cut down version of Punch - itself an inferior product). CadSoft are the producers of Envisioneer, what TFP was originally based on, and have carried on developing Personal Architect (what TFP used to be).

Whilst I have no axe to grind against IMSI, people should be made aware that they can obtain updated versions of the software they've been using for the last few years.

   MudMover :

                      Thanks VERY much for your post.  I appreciate it.   I downloaded the trial version of TFP V17.  And, fortunately, for me, it was the trial version.  When I did a render of quick interior I set up,  the results were cartoonish at best. And, the imported objects (.skp) was a  job in itself to modify.  I tried Personal Architect 4,  and the results were comparable to TFP V16.  So, I'll use PA 4 as a back up in case TFP V16 heads to the grave.

Hi Garystan,

You will find the rendering engine in PA-V4 has improved considerably, as it is based on latest version of Envisioneer (9) and it is now possible to have the sun and interior lights on at the same time. I know you like rendering, so you may find the changes are better than TFP V16 (after all it would have been TFP V18 as Mudover mentioned).
