AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

For some reason when I try to render my models I am getting double shadows which don't seem to be representing the sun as the location I set. I have no other lights in the drawing. Even if I turn the sun off I seem to be getting shadows. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi show us an example,  and attach the drawing, some basic things,  check your units, put the model close to the wcs origin.

I will attach image soon just have to get it off work pc. Units are millimetres as that's what we work in and I have drawn the model at 0,0. It's like the sun is shining from two directions I have set the azimuth and altitude myself. Even when I try render a front elevation with no sun or lighting I am still getting shadows appearing which I don't want. Thanks for your help

Hard to say without seeing a picture (and perhaps even a model.)  If the shadows resolve when you let the rendering cook for a while this is likely normal behavior (the shadows are temporary artifacts caused by sky hemisphere lighting.)  If the shadows do not resolve but seem sharp and permanent then something is probably going wrong.

maybe you are using the studio preset?

"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."

"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"
