AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello,

Depending on what i use to set the background I find that the transperancy under the Decal properties is respected or not. For both the following settings, i have set under the Decal properties that the color of interest is transperant. (my decal used is the vegetation and the buildings on the side of the 3d model)

 

Setting 1

On picture n.1 you can see me setting a generic sky background with the Lighting tool, As a result on picture n.2 you can see the vegetation on the left side and the buildings on the right side of the 3d model nicely blending with the generic sky as intended.

 

Setting 2

On picutre n.3 you can see me setting a real sky using WalkAbout for the background, As a result on picture n.4 unexpectedly the vegetation on the left side and the buildings on the right side of the 3d model are not blending in with the background.

What is the problem here?

 

Thank you.

Meanwhile save your rendering as PNG with alpha channel. You can then add the sky background in photoshop or like. 

Make sure the refracted background is set to visible. If that doesn't work it may need to wait until Monday-- I'm traveling today. Akinlolu's suggestion of alpha compositing should also work.
Thank you, I set the refracted background to visible and the result was excelent.

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More

"Yes, it will be different.  Typing arstudio should be roughly the same operation as "running a quick test render"-- it may be a little slower, and the first time you type it, it will certainly be slower (it was before). …"

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"
