AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hello friends, I propose a competition of free participation in order to enhance and share the best knowledge of all the members of this community nxt. The idea is this: that each who wishes to participate, use a 3D model which is on the internet and imported into AutoCAD and nXt render it compared to other renderers on the market. Ideally, this project Roy Hirshkowitz take as their own, and be who ruled what is the best job with nxt. The format of the competition could be like this, which should include a brief explanation of the settings used.
Roy do you think?

I certainly don't have time for something like this.  After the Flamingo release, it's possible that McNeel might.  Comparing nXt to other renderers directly is asking for trouble-- I wouldn't recommend this as a format for a competition.

Ok Roy, the idea is exposed, obviously you who you have to be assessed properly, perhaps with a different format would be much more effective ... but I think it would be a good way to see the potential for nxt ...

Best Regards.

to me this looks like nonsense...

  1. rendering time, editing time - how to take these into account?
  2. how long does it take to make changes - how to take that into account?
  3. ....

...pointless.

The idea of a rendering competition is great-- but like you point out-- direct comparisons between products are very difficult.

yep. My first thought was: "just send me a dwg and let me show how good nXt could do this" ... then I started thinking it over. IMHO there are too many variables, the use of a product is too complex... direct comparison would always be inaccurate and thus pointless.

I agree, I recognize the difficulty of assessing renders comparison with others, certainly not the best format for a competition. Would welcome any competition format to allow forum users learn to use the best possible settings ..., and later power envelopes on our work ...

I think it's a positive idea ...

I believe one good method is to have an exterior or interior scene which can be used as a basis to do a render. The Camera Angle would be same and it will basically come down to the usage of Light/Texture/etc settings.

Sampdoria, I think this would be a good option, as it will extrapolate and compare the best render settings, opening a debate constantly improving the software ....

a greeting
...

AccuStudio hosted several "competitions" like this some years ago. Link.

A model was provided that only only had a view set (no materials or lighting). We had the option of adding entourage and lighting. Entries are submitted and posted in the Gallery. Viewer could then vote on the images and after a set time frame, voting is closed and a "winner" announced. 

I'm sure we can still do this. Maybe even easier now with the "new" website. Let me know if interested and I can setup the space.

in order to promote the increase of the overall knowledge of nXt, rules of such a competition should incorporate that anyone who enters it will provide all details - lighting setup, material definitions...

So waiting for a model. Hopefully Architectural - for what Nxt is mostly used here!

Then also the need to have categories, like day and night exterior entries, natural or artificial or combine interior lighting entries.

"No time soon, no.  Mac will not give you more power, speed and resolution, BTW.  The computers that run mac are basically the same as the ones that run Windows."

Peter Milner replied to Wallace Amorim Júnior's discussion An interior attempt (if you know what I mean)
"The main problem you've got is that you are relying almost completely on indirect lighting. This takes a lot longer to resolve than direct lighting. If you can introduce some interior light sources it will help to reduce the graininess."

"Diese Probleme habe ich leider auch und schon öfters nachgefragt nach einer neuen Version von Comotion. Leider ohne Erfolg. Vielleicht reagieren die jetzt."

Comotion

Has anyone been using Comotion for nxt lately.  I havn't loaded the program in some time and decided to try it again.  The Comotion 2.0, build 013, loaded fine using running DEMANDCOMO.VLX (following the steps required to run the program) . When I ran the command COMONXT twice,  I received the error: No function Defination: DCL_PROJECT_LOAD.  To bad.  Has the program been updated to run with nxt or has it been shelved.  Any update Daniel?WIN XP64, Autocad 2010,  latest nXT version.  See More
