AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Small bug with the OpenDCL interface used in coMotion. If you downloaded and installed coMotion between 11/20/16 and 11/21/16 (yep just one day) you will need to 'downgrade' the OpenDCL. Go to Accustudio and follow the instructions. Use the link below. Cheers!

Daniel,

Testing coMotion out. Nice. I got a quality animation, right out of the box! Nice work!

Question: Back in AR3 (and maybe 4) we used to be able to output a wire frame or hidden version.  Maybe a preview?  Can we still do this? I see a Export Preview on the Animation tab, but cant figure it out. 

This was a great way to test the animation for speed, view and path without having to do a full render.
 for example 
Keep in mind this is an old, unfinished animation. Not an "inspirational animation" yet.  Long way to go :)

I think I did add in a Preview... at least the controls. I'll look into the output if it is not functioning correctly.

I realized after writing this post, that something was running in the background. I had it set for pngs, but nothing was in the destination folder. Whatever it was, took a while to do nothing. :)

Off to run a much smaller test...

I see how to get it to "play" the animation, but don't have controls to record/save the animation.

I did some digging this morning and if "Export Preview" is checked, it is suppose to write the image files. But even in my simple test it was not. Possibly something to do with the newer AutoCAD. I will continue to look into it have it fixed in the next build (hopefully by Monday).

I was running Acad 2015

I do all of my testing in 2014... same issue. Originally programmed for 2009 (I think)

coMotion Build 015 is posted and ready to download. I think I found why Previews were not exporting. If you check the box, setup the file permitters and then click play, it should export the individual images.

Any help files for comotion? 

Click on the Help Button...

thanks, wonder how I missed it. Also I keep having to appload before I can run it. Secondly can we have have a shorter command comonxt is rather long to type.

Will Comotion work on the Farm?

Textured Material - Use a material with a grass texture image.This model was rendered by simply using the textured nXt material call Grass-Rye_Dark.ArMaterial.This material is included with the standard nXt Material Libraries that can be downloaded here:…See More

Groundcover Issues

Hello,I am hoping to get some clarity on how to modify and add groundcover. I have searched everywhere on the forum and online to find how to save a plant as .ArGroundcover, but I cannot find anything. I am using AccuRender Plant Editor and once I finish editing the plant that I want to use as a groundcover, I click "save plant as", but all it allows me to save as is .ArTree. I have a deadline to get this render finished, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out. See More

"That sorted it - using the Studio camera and then selecting "Get AutoCAD view"."
