Just to update this post - I have begun creating 3d models of houses my family and I want to have built on our farm - one for my daughter, one for my wife and I, and one guest house between them...

To render these in high quality - with ceiling lighting - is taking DAYS. My above suggestion is a critical need now... I leave my machine working for hundreds of hours: working on this rendering - during which time Malware - Viruses - Memory allocation errors - Power glitches - sleep mode on my computer - and a thousand other issues can arise.... Making me lose hundreds of hours of rendering time.... PLEASE create a method in which the frames the program uses to make these renderings is saved to a temp directory - so if you are a week into the process, and you lose the power, the program can resume rendering on the frame it was up to when the power went out, or the computer rebooted....

Also, I have encountered a glitch which I have not been able to overcome... Vaulted Ceilings - where there are multiple sloping angled walls in one corner of the room (say 8ft at one corner and 12ft at the others three) - the ceilings are flat in the 3d view - attaching to the highest point of the highest wall - leaving huge gaps of sky showing at the tops of the other walls.

And does anyone have a good Air Hockey Table model? I have found a couple, but they are proprietary (made by the Air Hockey Table Manufactures) and the artist wants $70.00 and more for the download (which is great: if I were a professional Architect charging folks for these 3d model walk through) - or they are the wrong format... There you go designers - add a translation program to import the various types of 3d models into this program to be used...
