AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I am working with AutoCad architecture.  I downloaded the latest materials library and am able to select materials in nxt and put them in my project but the libraries don't preview in the file manager so I must load every material into the project to see what it looks like.  How can I get it to preview in the file manager.  I just shows a red ball.

I would attempt to find the offending material first.  If and when you find it-- I'd love to see it.

I did start the process. I sorted by date and worked one file at a time. I could see that as I drug, a transparent thumbnail appeared. All went well until about half way through the directory. I still couldnt tell the file, but I have the list narrowed down. 

Not sure if its related, but my pc freaked out this morning doing a "refresh/bounce back and forth from desktop to start" loop. didnt give me time to click anything. finally got task manager up and found a "WINDOWS THUMBNAIL EXTRACTION.." loop under status.  Finally got in enough to run restore and got it working again. I think (from searches) was from a windows update. 

I'm scarred to go play with icons for a while :) i just tried and its still crashing the materials folder.

"Yeah-- like I mentioned the caustics are accurate but could be annoying.  Things that might alter it include changing the sun angle so it's not striking the chair's metal surfaces so directly, changing the roughness of the chair…"

"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Ah-- so that's a function of the material type.  The standard material won't give you a mirror anymore.  You need to change the material to metallic and you should get something more familiar.  Use the Type popdown on the…"

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"It's interesting-- overall the quality of this interior is very high for that short amount of processing, and may be acceptable for certain scenes.  In this one, however, there are some reflective caustics that are taking longer to…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."
