AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Lately I was trying to complete simple 3D model with spherical map applied on it (earth globe model). In walkabout window and in Autocad viewport everything looks OK, but rendered result is wrong. I tried to change origin, to reset mapping position etc. without any success. What am I doing wrong? See attached screen captures. Advices from nXt gurus will be highly appreciated.

Hi George! It is not the first time that I notice that the mapping looks good in Acad windows, or Walkabout, but the result after render in nXt is not the same (origin or orientation).

It seems more like a bug to me Marc. :(  I've checked my units and everything. Nothing unusual found so far though.

I thought I sent this reply already-- trying again.

 

It's likely a bug-- send the globe so I can check it out.  Upload link or attach to a forum msg.

File sent. Thanks, Roy.
How in heaven where you able to achieve this in Nxt since spherical decal is no longer supported in Nxt?
Materials.

Meaning keep adjust till it about fits, right?

"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."
