Can you send me the model and I'll see if I can duplicate it here?

Thanks

Thanks.
I can duplicate the error.

I'll see if I can track down the problem.

I shared your model with Roy, who told me that he has seen this happen when the file format is updated from one version to another without having nxt loaded to manage it's own data.  

He said that recovery was difficult, but one way to recover the file so that it could be used again with nXt was to delete the materials. 

I tried that, and after deleting all the materials I was able to load nXt with that model loaded. if that helps.

That was what I did too. 

Selected all objects and change its layers to zero which by default I do not assignment (as I assign materials by layers) materials to.

Then purge the drawing to remove all of nxt materials.

Take objects back to their rightful layers and reassign the layers.

Is there a faster way to do this?

Not that I know of.

Perhaps someone else who follows this forum knows a faster way to do it.

"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."
