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.

"Hi Chris, The modelling, lighting and rendering are very good on these three images. However, I feel they are let down slightly by the "Photoshopped" plants, cars and people. I think it's mainly to do with the shadow direction and…"

"Not yet.  It's not quite like that-- where you can offload certain portions.  It's more like an all or nothing proposition."

"Thank you Roy. The more physical based effects nXt has, the more realistic pictures it will compute. All of those need a lot of computing power under (or on top of) our desks though. Are you doing any move to engage GPUs on rendering process in nXt?…"

"Most are using nVidia's stuff for denoising-- it's pretty impressive. They are reflective caustics which you get automatically in the new engine-- yes, I think they come from sunlight striking the chair bases.  They should be pretty…"

"Nice! Many path renderers are introducing denoising features with good results. I have a question on those images Roy: the bright elliptical spots on the wall between the two windows are reflection caustics from highly reflective surface on the…"

"I've been experimenting with nVidia's denoiser (requires one of their GPUs) in the new Image Editor.  Very promising-- here's regular and denoised.  Click on each image to see it full size:"
