AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Started a rendering and reduced the ACAD/nXt windows. Started another ACAD session and did some separate work. Have closed the second session of ACAD...

Can't get the render window to come up...although the ACAD window comes up and is available to use. Have confirmed that the rendering is proceeding by noting the number of passes is increasing.

It's nXt Version 1.0.348 (yea, I know....old)...., Autocad Architecture 2016 and Windows 10.

Screen shop attached...Help?

Thanks,

John

Let it run overnight, thinking the window might be slow to appear due to processing. No luck...It was still processing though.

Clicked the x in the little preview window at the bottom of the screen.

The rendering window preview disappeared.

Clicked the start a rendering button and the rendering window appeared and asked if I wanted to save the current rendering…. I did.

All’s well….

Hover your mouse over the AutoCad session on the taskbar all hidden windows should pop up.

then right and click maximize the session you are interested in.

 

That's the way it's supposed to work....just wasn't cooperating. All the other windows popped up, just not the rendering window.

Tested it after with a simple model/rendering and it worked as expected. I have no answer as to the odd behavior. All's well now. Will set it to autosave in the future....

Thanks,

John

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
