AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD


I have a issue (maybe bug?) happening when sending renderings to farm.  It is happening with only one dwg file - terrain (everything in attachment) - when it is sent to farm it takes very long to produce model for farm (10 minutes) and file *.nxtmodel for farm model is HUGE (over 10 GB). Terrain is quite simple modeled as mass group (couple of mass elemets grouped together), also I tried to convert terrain to 3D solid which it didn't help at all (*.nxtmodel size dropped to 8 GB). But when I export dwg to plain dwg, everything works fine. Can you look at it, Roy?

Thanks.  I may not get to it for a day or so.

OndraZ, I tried your model here without any issues. The models translated, loaded and rendered all under 2mins on a 2 computer farm. All 3 files acted the same as well. I rendered them at 1700x1100.

Thanks for trying, Garret. I tried the file I've sent again...and I'm still getting huge model (now 5GB) - see printscreen in attachment. Autocad Architecture 2010, Win 7 Pro 64 bit, nXtFarm 276


Here;'s what I am getting using the 'MG' version of the file. There is quite a difference for sure!

So after some time I found out what was the problem. If mass group has decal applied -> nXtmodel is about  over 10 GB. After removing decal, nXtmodel size drops to 205 MB and everything works fine...


Interesting.  I may ask you for a little help in reproducing this when I get back to the office next week.  It may be a bug.

"As you point out, it's not practical to render 250-300 frames for an animation in Hybrid Mode.  Packet Mode is  the most efficient way do this with our software."

"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
