AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Gentlemen,

I work on a residential scheme, and there are hundreds of trees to be placed.

I have created a few with Plant Editor, and, regreteably, rendering time was about 40min for 1 pass (res 1920x1080 which is not hires at all..)

Is there any relation between Ar Plant (ie complex, standard or wide tree, level of branches, number of leafs, etc., etc. - to find the right balance between rendering time and tree quality?

Any help appreciated.

Roof shingles, made from asphalt. It's probably why it's usually dark colour.

That's possible. But as I see your terrain is flat - mine was quiet complicated - just the model was bigger 3,6 MB.

Besides, the point is I must have done something wrong with my trees - nXt plants are not so complicated. Which makes me belive there must be a rule of thumb and relation between the "structure" of a tree and rendering time.

Moreover, I guess my machine is not so fast as yours is...  :)

You're thinking about the complexity of the plants vs. render times is correct. The more complex the plant, the more apparent faces there are to render. This increases the rendering time. 

Here is a quick test to prove the theory. I took your original plant you posted and made a light and heavy version of the plant. Notice the total number apparent faces in each and the number of passes. The total render time was about 5 minutes each.

Garret, could I get the "lite" and "heavy" plants to spot the defferences?

Here are the two trees made from your original. I'm by no means an expert at making plants. The main goal was to cut out branches and leaves on the light weight version and the opposite for the heavy version.

EDIT: Again the ng won't let me upload files. Here's a link to the two in my BOX account.

the better machine (pc) you have, fast rendering you got.... remenber your machine is like a car, the better upgrades you make to your car ( your pc) it will run better, more fast... remenber that..!!

Norton, that's obvious.  The point is to get maximal efficiency using THIS machine as it is.   :)

Of course, there is no upper limit to upgrade the machine...

hey..!! if you are going to compete, to  get a better race so if you said that is obvious so prepare yourself for that show... good luck..

Wow, Norton... :)  Keep calm.. I am an amateur.  The better machine the more power for render - that is obvious. And this is what I was trying to say, no more and no less.  :)

Regards.

IMPORTING 3DS AND OBJ FILES WITHOUT LOSING THEIR TEXTURE MAPS

Good day everyone,Does anyone know how to import obj and 3ds files into autocad without having the models lose their textures ?I have imported so many but they dont come with their textures.See More

Led Lights - Iluminação indireta

Por favor , há anos que não consigo uma solução... Eu preciso de uma orientação sobre como proceder para representar iluminação INDIRETA em sanca de gesso.Não temos mais a antiga opção de Linear Light que já existiu no Accurender. Então como fazer? Me sugeriram aplicar omnidirectional light em vários cilindros pequenos para simular isso, mas convenhamos, além de não ser prático , é muito ineficaz e irreal porque a luz fica manchada em partes ao invés de um facho linear que conseguíamos fazer no…See More
