AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I'm having a problem with a fatal error on opening AR5 after attaching a background image.  The choice of image does not seem to matter.  I'm using arnxt64_0281.

Two .dwg files plus screen shots are attached.  The sequence of events is as follows:


1) Load file “135 exterior-11-1124-skysolid.dwg”- no problem opening AR5

2) Lighting-Advanced tab settings (see “0001advanced tab.jpg”)

3) Lighting-Sky tab settings (see “0002 sky tab.jpg”)

4) Lighting-Background tab settings (see “0003 background tab.jpg”)

5) Up to this point the file can be saved, closed, re-opened. AR5 starts with no problem

6) Lighting-Background tab – An error is generated on selecting “use image” but it’s still possible to continue and the rendering runs fine (see “0004 select image bkg-error.jpg”)

7) Save-As “135 exterior-11-1124-skyimage.dwg” and close file

8) Open file “135 exterior-11-1124-skyimage.dwg”. File opens without problem

9) Fatal crash on starting AR5 (see “0006 ar5 startup crash error.jpg”)

10) Copying all objects from “135 exterior-11-1124-skyimage.dwg” into a clean file allows AR5 to start fine, but sky and background settings revert to the default. When this new file is changed to have a background image, items 6-9 repeat.


Any insight would be appreciated.  Thanks.  Ron

Interesting how these show up in bunches.  I haven't changed anything in this area for a while-- but another user just reported the same thing.  I'll put out a new build tomorrow with the fix.

works great.  also the x and y offsets work (they didn't).  thanks very much Roy

Hmmm.   Definitely didn't change the x-y offset stuff.

the background in the attached image is offset about 0.35 in the Y direction, to bring the tree and dark foreground up into view at the right edge.  I couldn't get it to happen, no matter what number I entered, till whatever changed between 281 and 282.  anyway, thanks again.

"I'm not sure if you are applying the tree to the region as a decal or as part of a material. if a decal onto the region, I don't think AR will allow 2 decals. I guess you could stack them but I don't think one applies to the other…"

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More
