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.

"You were right, Roy. It was about the file name - ash on my head. ARStudio seems to be very ok for my humble interiors' purposes. One minor point (see attached) - meters or millimeters only, what about centimeters? I need to scale all my…"

"Looks like there's no file name.  Try saving the drawing to a file first, then run ArStudio.  This is a bug, obviously.  Thanks."

Here's the latest version of the new stuff.  If you're interested, try it at your leisure and let me know what you find.  It's a work in progress, so please be kind.  We'll likely have some bugs and certainly have some missing features.******Some highlights:Standalone renderer which accepts input from Rhino, Sketchup, Obj and FBX.Plugins for AutoCAD and other CAD applications.Online material and plant…See More
