AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I'm currently running a render on the farm at 16,540 x 6790 pixels for the graphics on the side of a delivery van.

The rendering is split into tasks and each saved chunk is approximately 1.5Gb in size.

When I try to open one of these in the nXt Image editor, it crashes.

I'm not running out of RAM on my computer as I have 24Gb.

Any ideas?

Not really.  I may need to take a look at one of the sections.

What's the best way of sending it to you?

I'll need a download link for something that big-- something high speed if possible.  You can send the link by private message here or use roy@mcneel.com.

I've sent it to you via WeTransfer.

Here's the error message I get.

I downloaded it and was able to reproduce the error.  I have some time tomorrow or perhaps later today to take a closer look.

Unfortunately I don't have a good answer for this one.  I'm running into some sort of WIndows limitation which isn't documented regarding allocation of very large chunks of memory at a single go.  I may put something together for Microsoft to see what they say, which probably won't help very much.  

I can fix this, but it will take a substantial amount of work to the image editor-- which means I can't snap my fingers and make it happen.  Right now I'm looking at the new stuff and making sure this won't happen there.

A smaller image size with upsizing in photoshop is all I can offer for the moment.  Depending on how strongly you feel about this, I can commit to fixing the legacy code.  It will take a few workdays to do-- which means a few weeks on the schedule.

"40 minutes render on local machine. Lighting reduced to real wold values. Window glass changed to Thin. I noticed that you can't set glass IOR to 0.0, only 0.001."
