advanced rendering for AutoCAD
I have a file with a repeatable error in both architecture 2012 & 2013. I can not get it to repeat outside of this file however. I've audited the file with no errors.
The error occurs in trying to render a panorama, using interior lighting settings. If I run the rendering in engine 1 it starts the rendering set-up & crashes, in engine 0 it will render once. If you pause or re-start the rendering autocad again crashes. I will upload the files for both 2012 & 2013. I'm using windows 7, 64bit, Autocad Architecture, and NXT build 310.
Is there a simple fix here?
I tried uploading files twice & connection is timing out.
Are you using the upload link? In any case, I'm traveling and won't be able to do anything about it until next week.
I did try to use the upload link with zipped files both Friday and again today. So far it has consistently reset the connection before the file is completely transfered. I will try to do 2 individual files but after that I don't have any other ideas.
I've got them both-- I'll take a look today or tomorrow.
The Light named "Ceiling Light" is causing the crash. Apparently, tagging a polar array as a light is a big no-no. (I've got this on the list to look at-- I should be able to prevent the crash, anyway. The thing may also crash if you tag an object that isn't 3d-- a line without thickness, for example-- so this does need to be fixed somehow.) For now, you can explode the array and tag the individual sources as lights-- or any similar solution.
Not related to panoramas, BTW-- it will crash on any Path Tracer rendering for sure-- and may crash e0 as well.
Thank you very much Roy
If you must array, tag the first object, then array.
