Hello all,

I am currently working on an outdoor shower project, about 5'x12' with a partition in the center. I am having trouble getting a good view of the interior. Is it possible to render section cuts? I tried this and all I got was a gray screen. Does anyone else have any other suggestions? 

Attached you will find a few images of the shots I am getting.

Also a side note, any tips for good frosted glass that will let some light through?

Thanks,

You can render section cuts, but you need the Podium Section Tool to do it. You get it from here.

For frosted glass, use a grainy texture mid grey in colour, and try starting with the following values:

D30/T70/R0 with the translucency box checked.

Hello Brian,

You could also hide one of the walls and take some distance to view the scene.
To avoid false light coming in from the opening, I build a black box around my scene. later on you can PP the render to your needs.

the scene with black box:
You can experiment giving the back wall of the box a white colour with some LEM.

an end result could look something like this:
