When should I use Local Base import and when Global Base Import?
The SketchUp import process uses two possible sources for the EASE material of an EASE face.
- If the SketchUp face has a SketchUp material attached, then this is the preferred proposal for the EASE material.
- If the SketchUp face has the Default material attached, then the layer name is used as a proposal for the EASE material.
1. This picture shows a face which has an internal (EASE front) material “Material06”.
The first step is to keep in mind the usual requirements of an EASE 4.x project. Users creating a model in SketchUp should be aware of the conventions adopted by EASE. For instance, the proper orientation of Faces, and the correct application of Two-Fold Faces, among others.
Here you will find some hints for the construction process in order to successfully import a room into EASE 4.x.
The following Tutorial-Room can be imported and will pass the Check Data process in EASE 4.x without errors:
EASE 4 allows both the import and export of model information using the AutoCAD DXF file format. The module used for this capability is called EASE Import / Export.

I am really annoyed by the fact that when I am peeking around in the Mapping or Eyes module and use the Probe function to look closer at the frequency response it always switches back to the reflectogram view.
To solve that, go to Probe Options via F9 or File/Options and select "Previous Graph" under "Default Graph" on the "General" page.
I built a very simple shoebox with a Loudspeaker and some Listener Seats. Then I ran the Mirror Imaging in EASE Rays. Although I had chosen 5 for the order, after invoking the Probe I could only see the direct sound impacts. Where are the reflections?
If there are no reflections visible in the reflectorgram, you should check two things:
I have measured reverberation times for different frequencies. How can I use them in EASE? I also ran Schroeder RT in the Probe to simulate. Does EASE use it automatically for the mappings then?
Why has the recommended resolution been changed from a half wavelength to an eighth of a wavelength?
What is the difference between the menu commands Colored Outlines and Outline All Faces?
Outline All Faces means that the rim of every Face in your Room will be drawn in a specific color.
If Colored Outlines is switched off the color to be used depends on the settings in the Dye menu, e.g. White Faces will cause white outlines.
If Colored Outlines is switched on then the colors chosen under Options/Colors/Face Outline will be used
I found some strange checkmarks in the Options Window, namely "Hor Turn Seats" and "Ver Turn Seats". Turning it on or off does not seem to affect the rendered view. What does this option mean?
