AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I've been tasked with "taking my renderings to the next level".

My boss has seen a competitors brochure containing some excellent renderings and wants me to produce something similar. The question is whether I've gone as far as I can with Accurender or whether there's something more I can do.

The first 2 images are samples of the best I can achieve with Accurender. The other images are from the competitors brochure. In particular, note the very natural lighting conditions.

3d max vray-one step higher-

What does your boss mean as "higher level" ? In my opinion all the "black framed" pictures are not really higher level, maybe except of the last one - with alucobond beams and bryces.

Finding new boss could do I guess...   :-)  Awesome details, Peter.

Mike - In my privat opinion, nXt is far more usefull than 3DMax - segnificant faster and much easier to operate. 

oh yes  NXT faster and very easy to use I still use it every day....i am also using max vray and sure there are a lots of setting to do before you get the image effect you want.Its much more photo realistic than NXT.

Really can't find anything to be ashamed of, Peter. You surely got nXt to highest possible level. Vray images look good, but in my opinion really not better than nXt ones (your work), even the last one Maciej mentioned. I was playing with Vray demo for Sketchup in the past, but quickly realized, that for the highest rendering  quality it was not fast at all nor easy to setup. Of course I could be wrong :)

There's something about the ambient light in the 3D Max images that makes them look more realistic. Mine look a bit cartoony, but I can't quite say why.

El ojo humano, en la realidad, no lacanza a percibir los colores tan intensos. Por lo general el resplandor producido por los halos de luz y la iluminacion del ambiente producen colores menos intensos.

you are wrong...:D

Agree... :)

Hola a todos, antes que nada mi mejores deseos para este año que inicia. En lo personal, creo que Peter es uno de los mejores representantes en el uso del NXT. Creo que el manejo de la luz y de los materiales es magnifico. Es importante mencionar qeu los grandes maestros del VRAY, siempre tienen un modelo "crudo" el cual representa un 70% - 80% del trabajo final; el porcentaje restante corresponde a el proceso de postproduccion, dependiendo de cada persona esto recae en photoshop, lightroom, etc. Adjunto mi pequeña contribucion al respecto de las imagenes de Peter con lo poco de postproduccion qeu manejo. Saludos

Here's an attempt using a HDRI background instead of the default sky.

The only problem is that it takes a lot longer to resolve.

"Sort of-- nXt has a hard-coded max of 32 but you get diminishing returns before than point.  If you go beyond 32 they can sometimes be used, depending on the load.  I guess I would still think of 32 as a practical limit. ArStudio should…"

Purchased a new subscription to Autodesk. When I logged into Autodesk, it automatically upgraded my version I was using and installed 2021 version. Now my AccuRender NXT does not work nor will it load on 2021 version.I have spent the last 3 weeks trying to get support but I am not receiving anything.I have paid and downloaded the latest version of NXT but it's not working nor is the support working. Having been an NXT CUSTOMER for many years, I am extremely disappointed in the support.Not sure…See More
