AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Coming soon-- path tracer only.  Suspended faceted balls-- one metal, one glass.  I think the algorithm is robust enough to handle glass covers over light sources, reflectors behind light sources, etc..

Oh! nXt is getting mature day by day with all those new features to one hell of the rendering beast! Impressive! Well done, Roy!
Fantastic...Good job

Again, very nice!

 

Thanks Roy, nice fonction, but, for your health, you have to sleep a little bit... But from my point of view, keep on...

Seriously, does this tool work for the reflection (caustic?) of the water of interior pool on the ceilling or the wall? Not very good explained, but I hope you understand what I mean.

Yes-- you're getting both reflected and refracted caustics from the glass ball, for example.  For physically-based materials the amount of reflection depends on the IOR of the material-- in this case water (1.33).  You can also "fake" it by adding some extra reflectivity to the water.

 

One very exciting thing about this algorithm is the reflection of the caustic made by the glass ball in the window-- this particular light path is very difficult to capture, even by programs like Maxwell.

 

Still working out how to do this stuff with daylighting, BTW....

"Yes. We used to hide a little soft toy bear called Fret in our sets back in the day when we used photography. We then created a 3D version of Fret and included him in many of our renders. If you have a look at the images in my Ambus 2014 album, you…"

"Do you ever hide stuff in your scenes? I used to have my dog Joey in EVERY render. Sometimes an icon on a monitor or in a window reflection, or book cover."

"Thanks George. I've had to produce quite a lot of lifestyle images in a short space of time. It's challenging coming up with so many different settings and layouts."
