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.

NXT object properties

 As a pensioner I'm using version PC23w 1 .0 of NXT render with Autocad 2017. Recently due to one of Autocads many crashes the object properties within NXT can no longer see any objects I select in the  drawing. Can this be repaired without downloading and reinstalling one or other of the programs?See More

"Thank you. I think I jumped from AutoCAD 2011 to 2018 which is when I noticed the problem."

"Panning while placing decals doesn't work for me in any version starting with AutoCAD 2015 and later. Panning does work in AutoCAD 2013. I'll see if I can figure out what changed and see if we can fix that."
