AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I don't know why but render farm hasn't been working for me for the last few updates. I haven't changed anything on my network, just added the new versions of nxt. I keep getting this windows error that tells me “nXt64.exe has stopped working”, “do I want to debug or close program”. It comes up that way on both machines. Both paths are to a shared directory on our server. Deleted the old paths because I thought there was something running in the back ground. Tried to reinstall render farm, still get the same errors. It looks like it starts up fine and looks like it is running in the Render Farm Monitor (0 of 4 tasks completed) and status are both Active, but nothing ever happens.

 

Please help!

It's unlikely that updating nXt has made a difference.  Try a very simple model first to see if it completes.

do both machines need nxt installed or just the one that starts the farm?

Only the one which generates the files for the farm-- i.e. the machine with your AutoCAD drawing and nXt.  You can launch the farm using the nXtFarmMonitor from any machine as well.

It use to work great, now it is not. I will try a smaller model like you said. Anything else i should be looking into? Windows Temp Files, network settings, AV running? It looks like starts and then the error message...

Not yet.  First make sure this isn't model specific.  Start with a simple model and no materials.

Accustudio

I know this is hard to believe, but Accustudio is over 20 years old. It has been quiet for a couple of years now at the site. I'm looking to hand it off to the next generation. Is there anyone interested in working on the site and eventually taking over the ownership of it?See More

"Yes, it will be different.  Typing arstudio should be roughly the same operation as "running a quick test render"-- it may be a little slower, and the first time you type it, it will certainly be slower (it was before). …"

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"
