AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

My new computer came with a Quadro 4000 graphics card.

Is there any way of utilizing the GPU capabilities to speed rendering up?

using other rendering engine, ha ha........

Yes, there is. Try: Octane Render, Blender Cycles, Small LUX GPU, V-Ray RT, Indigo RT, Bunkspeed, Maxwell, Thea ..... :D

maxwell and vray is cpu rendering only

V-Ray RT with GPU support:

Maxwell indeed has real time preview, but still, it is only CPU based.

VRAY RT...REAL TIME PRODUCTION...

None of the mentioned renderers are for use in AutoCAD. They are in majority stand-alone rendering suites with advanced connection plugins for the most popular 3D software programs like Maya, 3D Studio Max, Rhino 3D, Sketchup, Blender.... etc.

One of the best of Vray 2.0 is that you can use "Vray RT" as output, ie you can use the same parameters also Vray for RT, either CPU or GPU, this is a great advantage.
Picture this for animations, it is now a reality

vray in Max example...

vray using gpu is for display only, not for production

Hmm, not quite the answers I was looking for.

It's not a problem, it just seems a shame to have all that processing power sitting around doing nothing.

GPU seems to be very usefull when moving into the walkabout window. But it takes a cofee when rendering...

Still in a wait and see mode re: GPU for the type of rendering we do, but not particularly optimistic.  So far, despite all of the advertising hype, the results for others have been very mixed when doing things like Path Tracing.  

A GPU is a very different computer than a CPU, and the way the code is written changes drastically.  In the case of your 12 core machine, it would almost certainly be a case of either/or-- the GPU would have to substitute for not supplement the CPU.  Your case would be the least likely of all to show any significant improvement.

materials list by layer

In the old Accurender there was a choice to only show unfrozen layers. Right now i get an entire list of all my layers and i have a bunch once i get some pieces of furniture in there... I just want to simplify it by only showing unfrozen layers. Can we still do that?See More

"You use the Beam tab on the Lighting Wizard. Take a look at: www.renderplus.com/wp2/wk/Visible_Light_Paths.htm We suggest you play around in with this in a simple model to see what works better for you. "

Visible Light Paths?

How do you make a Visible Light Path?For example, I would like to render a projector shooting an image onto a screen.How do I show a visible beam of light from the projector to the screen?See More

"Not really-- this issue may be open for a while.  I don't have an easy way to debug this right now.  Your current best bet would be to render as high a resolution as you can and upsample in photoshop."
