AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I use a lot of ACI settings on my Acad Models. They help me a lot to switch from model to plan and view the images the way i want. How do i apply materials for Autocad Color dependnat objects (ACI). The old Accurender use to this as part of the basics...

Material assignment by ACI is no longer supported. Materials can be assigned by layer, object, or ACA display property.
Your kidding me! Accurender always used ACI, it was one of the easiest ways to set up colors for objects... i hate using ACAD materials. What about all my old objects and blocks that had ACI settings...
Hey, I have used AR3 for 60 years + or -
It is by far the best way to assign materials for what I do.
But you know, the younger generation knows best. ??
You need to assign the materials to each component in Autocad's Style Manager. See the image below.

No other way? I set up years of Accurender files with a palate of 100 colors. I set those up all as ACI dependant so i wouldn't have to mess with materials. If i had to do these settings, i might as well just use the built in AutoCad render.... Is there any hope of getting materials to be ACI again?
No.

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

"Those are all exceptional work, Peter! Congratulations!On this one only: bricks look big to me, but maybe I am wrong. Also some areas in shadow look still a bit noisy."

"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."
