AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Is this tool working?

I just tried it on several legacy libraries with no success. The rare occasion when I think it did work, it looks like it skips bump maps. Also get this error every time

Clearly a bug.  Appears to be working here-- I'll pass it on to Renderplus.

I get the error in the R20 64 bit  version, AutoCAD 2015.
I'll see if I can figure out what the cause is.

Still works in the R19, AutoCAD 2013, version.

I posted a new version with a fix for the error being thrown by the Legacy Material Converter in AutoCAD 2015, version 0348-OA08.

If you are still having trouble with bump maps being skipped, I will need to get a sample .mlib file from you and some steps on what to look for.

It's working fine now. Thanks!

AR4 had a method of selecting images (multiple), right click and "convert to material", all from explorer, stand alone from AutoCad. Any chance of bringing that back? Maybe a set of nXt tools (materials, convert to HDRI...)

Stop!

When it converts the old material mlib it deletes the original files used (jpg/png...)

Its taken several directories of my textures before I found this.

I don't suppose you have a converter to pull embedded files out? :-/

The coverter should not delete anything.  All original material libs and maps are only read, never written or deleted.  The maps should still be in their original locations. This is a major bug if it's actually happening.

The converted materials probably do have embedded maps, though. There's no official, supported, way to extract these. 

I didn't "test" this too much, but the one I "saw" happen was a series of 5 milbs and its material maps in a single folder. I only caught this because I had the folder with the materials and mlib open and watched the file count drop from 152 files to 119 after running 2 mlibs.

Another folder had a set of converted files, but all the .ARmaterials where blank white. This is a set I ran twice. Second time, the maps were gone.

I hate to say it, but it did work fine on a couple other libraries.

It may be writing some temporary files-- I can check the code-- but deleting input stuff doesn't make any sense and it's very unlikely that it's something I did.  Usually those files are opened in a way that doesn't permit deleting.  Nothing's impossible, though.

The converter has never been perfect.  For example, tga's are not used and must be converted to a different format.  I can try out any libs that you're having trouble with.  I will need the map files as well.

I tested it again at work. Used the same directory and mlib and the same thing happened. Here's a shot of the files disappearing...

I have the directory zipped up. files/folders/mlibs. 7.8mb

where do I send it?

I also searched for missing files. They weren't moved. Search found nothing but my backup zip.

That's not good.  Try here:

"Hallo David Das mag alles richtig sein, was Sie sagen. Für Einzelbilder ist es auch kein Problem da mal eben über Nacht 800 oder 1000 oder 1500 Passes zu machen. Aber was ist, wenn man eine Animation mit 250 - 300 Bilder rendert? Wenn…"

Flecken in Bilder

Ich habe da mal eine Frage:Wenn ich Bilder im Standard Modus rendere, sehen diese sehr gut aus.Wenn ich das gleiche Bild im Hybrid Modus rendere, habe ich jede Menge kleine weisse Punkte und Flecken in dem Bild.Warum und wieso kommen diese Flecken????I've got a question:When I render images in standard mode, they look very good.When I render the same image in hybrid mode, I have tons of tiny white spots and spots in the image.Why and why do these spots appear ????See More
