AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Wow! I have been using nXt for a while now and today I just realized that I also have the Image and Tree Editor.  I know I have read about the image editor before but never took the time to look into it. I messed around with it a little this morning and both of these are great tools!  Thanks guys for including these programs with nXt.

Any suggestions on how to make bushes in the tree editor? I noticed the default units in the Tree Editor are in meters.  Can this be changed to foot/inch? When I create a tree and place it into my cad file, will it be placed identical each time? Or will it be placed (look) different each time I click?

Using this help randomize the tress/plants.

Any suggestions on how to make bushes in the tree editor? Open an existing small plant/tress and start messing round with the variables. You are bound to get a hand of it that way. Here is some of mine.

"okay, but why should one try to draw each separate light source? As you mentioned before, most of the time these are behind a diffuse cover. "

"It works pretty well for this-- where the surfaces are diffuse.  Peter's got a more reflective surface which probably would show reflections of the individual light sources in the roll.  It's an interesting problem (and an actual…"

"Yep-- these sometimes do exhibit discreet reflections.  Does the hybrid engine do any better with these? "
