AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I just installed Comotion 2.0 and the demand loader.  (using Autocad 2012 and Accurender build 271).  I try to load Comotion and get the error: no function definition: dcl_project_load.  I searched that error and found a thread with a solution from Daniel of:

Every once and again OpenDCL does not demand load. You can add it to your AppStart. The ARX should be located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\OpenDCL and you want the file OpenDCL.x64.18.arx

I am not sure what or where AppStart is.  I did locate the file and tried loading it with appload and I get an error of:

unable to load OpenDCL.x64.18.arx file.

Since I have a 32 bit machine I tried doing the same with the OpenDCL.18.arx file and I get a different error of:

The OpenDCL local language resource module was not found or could not be loaded.  OpenDCL cannot continue.  Please reinstall OpenDCL Runtime to correct the problem.

Can someone tell me how to correct this problem.  I have an animation project I need to do and I would prefer not to do it on my old home machine that still has AutoCad 2004, Accurender 3.0, and the original Comotion on it.

BTW, what is the current status of Comotion?  Is it still being developed or supported?  Looks like there has not been much activity on it for a year or two.  I really loved the program and bought the original as soon as it was available.  For the simple animations I need to do occasionally it really did a great job.  What comes in NXT now is pretty useless to me since from what I see you can only make the camera move, not the objects in the drawing.

"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."

"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio ground plane
"Sorry-- just got back into town last night.  Infinite objects aren't supported in ArStudio-- so yes-- the ground plane has to be represented by a finite object, in this case a rectangle.  You don't have to use mine, you can use…"

"good image and nice montage... the only thing is that the sky is too blue ... a light colour and would make it perfect"
