AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

  • Added support for e4 on the render farm (updated the farm as well to 315).
  • Made e4 an "official" choice in the interface under Lighting->Advanced. -- choices are e0 (Standard), e1 (Path Tracer), and e4 (Hybrid).
  • I now pass a frame number to RPCs during animation.  This should make animated RPCs such as fountains work, but it's completely untested.  Let me know if it isn't working.

How does the RPC part work?

Not sure what you mean.  Just run an animation-- they should work.

Hi Roy, since a little time, I noticed some strange shadows in the water of my pools when I wanted some caustic with the Engine 1. So I did some comparisons and here is what I obtain. Do you know what is happening with the caustic in the Engine1 ? (water is a simple face tagged as "caustic" and not "thin"). (Perhaps do I have to open a new thread)

Here is the dwg, for you, and those who want a water material...


Yes-- it should be in a separate thread.  Looks like a bug.

È in Illuminazione > Avanzato > Engine > Standard-Path Tracer-Hybrid

Check the build number for me (Help->About).  I'll try the 32 bit build this morning-- something may have happened.

I found the problem with the build.  It's an r17 problem so it effects Acad 2007-2009.  I'll have a new build shortly.

There's a new build up which should fix the problem.

Ich habe auch mal getestest. So sieht mein Ergebnis aus nach 1500 pases.

Einstellung war Hybrid. Sieht schon gut aus.



I think that in certain cases I still prefer Path Tracer: the transparency is much more realistic (close to real object) than in e4. But darks are much better in e4.

"Another good rendering. Those two photoshopped reading lights are not looking good though. They don't follow the perspective, the left one is higher than the right one. Also, they are supposed to be turned on (judging from the light on wall…"

"Great image as always. I would just blur the tree shadow on the lawn to match soft shadows on the building. Nice blending of cut-out greenery. Excellent job."

Railroad kitchen

"Very nice rendering Chris! The only thing that distracts me is the fruit bowl. It's too evidently pasted in PS.  Another thing (nothing to do with rendering) is the microwave above the stove. I would rather expect a cooker hood there."

trim and extension command

On AutoCad 2021.The trim and extension command works funny. I initiate the command then click the cutting edge (press entre) then click the lines I need to trim or extend.Now I initiate the command and as soon as I click the object selected trims or extend.  How can I correct this, it is really affecting my work?See More
