Nope.  There is the Help and Tutorials section and there is this forum.  Check the Help section.  If you don't find what you're looking for ask a question here.

The new manual is available online here:

www.nxtrender.com/wk/NXtRender_for_AutoCAD_Documentation.htm

You can get a Kindle eBook copy here:

Rendering with AutoCAD (using nXtRender)

And there will be a printed version soon.

There is also a bunch of tutorials at www.accustudio.com I've been working with Al and we are slowly getting things updated, including new video tutorials.

A facebook page would not be a bad idea either.

Please don't put anything of the nXt public things there (FB).

We do have a Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/RenderPlusSystems

But I have no idea what we should do with it

In addition to the eBook and printed versions, you can download a PDF version from:

Rendering with AutoCAD using nXtRender - Albert Hart.pdf

I use AR4 with Acad2004 or AR5 with Acad2011.  I haven't tried doing an AccuRender animation since about 2002.  I seem to remember using an add-on something called CoMotion back then.

A few questions... 

Is there a animation tutorial available for my AR5/Acad2011 setup?

Where can I look to find what's available regarding animation capability with the latest version... which is apparently now called nXtRender(?)  If it's fantastic, I might upgrade to whatever version of AutoCAD I'd need to use it.

I'd like to see some sample animations created in AR5 and in nXtRender to compare quality.  Where would I find some links?  

Thanks,

Wojo

Unlike CoMotion plugin in AR4, the animation capabilities of latest version is pretty limited, only the cameras can move now, but slideshows has being include and animated RPCs(fountains, waving peoples) work too. Output quality definitely better.

Since I'm in the process of catching up with what's new in the AccuRender world, I happened to wander into the old AccuStudio website yesterday... looking to see if I could download the latest version of CoMotion for my AR4 setup.  The titles of the new AccuStudio Forum topics suggest this might have turned into a black market website for purchasing fake Louis Vuitton bags?  Anybody know what's going on with the AccuStudio Forum?

Hi Steve,

I've taken AccuStudio forum offline. There is a security breach that I can't get plugged.

With that, there really isn't any tutorials. I hope that it is simple enough. Create a camera path, this can be anything from a Line, Pline, Point or arc. Create a target which can also be a Line, Pline, Point or Arc. Once you have the camera and target path selections, you can adjust your camera, preview it or render. Caution, I would recommend saving your model before beginning an animation, this is memory intensive.

Hope that helps a little.

RenderFarm passes and tasks

Got a strange glitch here.On one of our PCs, when sending a render to the Farm, the option to change the number of tasks is greyed out and stuck on 10. However, when a job is sent to the farm, it is automatically broken into 25 tasks.The PC is running the latest versions of nXt and the Farm and has been working perfectly up to  now.Any ideas?See More

"1-  On the Rendering Tab there is a popdown called Destination.  The option is called something like "Local Out of Process".  2-  No, installation will require admin access."
