AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

We have released a new version of nXtRender for AutoCAD - version 0343-NI04

This release includes both some Core Engine changes and some User Interface changes.

Version Numbers

343 is the nXt engine version number like we have been using in the past. NI04 is the release date (N=2014, I=September 04=day of month). This longer version number lets us have several UI change releases per base engine release and still keep track of them.

Licensing and Renewals

Everyone who purchased or renewed nXtRender anytime in 2013 or 2014 will be able to use this, and all new releases in 2014 without having to renew their license. (Normally you need to renew you license after 12 months to use new versions).

People who have not upgraded to nXtRender from AccuRender nXt (AR5) will need to renew their license to use this version. See: Renewals

New Features

- A few core changes have been made since the last version, such as a fix where the Hybrid engine interior simulation direct sunlight soft shadows was not resolving properly.

- You can now drag and drop materials from File Explorer into the nXt Material Pallet

- Lighting Channel was added as a column for the Lights list.
- And you can now sort the Light list by clicking on any column header.

- You can now sort the Layer Material list by clicking on any column header.

Additional new Features

We are working on the list of requested features and changes in this post:

I haven't been able to try Windows 10 myself yet.

I finally was allowed to download Windows 10 and I installed it and I was no longer able to use my docking station, so I went back to Windows 8.1.

I'll have to see if we have a machine that we cn load Windows 10 on to test it.

I'll see if I can duplicate this.

What version of AutoCAD are you using?

I am in the process of reverting to Windows 8.1 and I will tell you if all ok.

However, although AutoCAD sometimes crashed, NXT always crashed, not matter how low resolution, on any reasonably sized dwg. But it also required a hard boot.

The other problem was that now NXT says it is an evaluation copy. If I then ask it to check and confirm, it says it is ok.

reloaded windows 8.1, but same problem. Could it possibly be nxt code?

sorry - windows 7

"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:"
