AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Starting a new thread...

Latest version of AccuRender Studio is here.  Among other changes:

  1. ArStudio command automatically loads the model and begins interactive rendering in addition to bringing up the Control Panel palette.
  2. Decal interface has been redone to include multiple decals and cylindrical projections.
  3. Legacy data is being handled a little better.

It's an easy feature to add, but I'm pretty sure with this new version you'll find a time constraint to be more reliable.  The rendering below is probably done already, with a noise filter, or close to it.

Rendering runs can be combined in the Image Editor, as before.

The problem is when I'm running several renders over a weekend. How will I know how much time to allocate to each one?

I wouldn't want them to run for the same amount of time, as one may over-cook to no extra benefit, while another is underdone.

Yeah-- I understand.  I just think you may find you have a similar problem in this new engine with trying to estimate how many passes will be good enough.   That can vary a lot.

You're always going have some error, allocating some unnecessary processing and under-cooking some others.  My gut just tells me allocating by time will work a little better.

0295 is up, includes scale factor for preview image and stop after # passes.  Haven't gotten to New light channel option in Lights interface yet.  Check it out if you have a chance (no worries if not.)

I've found where to add lighting channels - in the preview rendering window.

Would it not make sense to have this button on the lighting tab:

I'll add a New... option to the channel popdown list in the Lights interface.

0296 is up-- includes New... options for light channels.

"Good start. Glass windows need some reflections , they look too plastic and dull. What are those white lines under the building? Parking lot for skateboards? ;) Shrub fence on the right needs revision."
