AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I'm getting a different appearance in my image from the Render Farm output vs. single machine output. Both renders were started from the same machine back to back using hybrid. Pay attention to the color of the parking deck material in particular. The intent is to have the image look like the single node render. The only thing I can come up with is maybe I'm not using Farm build 315 on the nodes. Any thoughts?

Strange that everything else apart from that one building is exactly the same.

Just for grins, check the model to make sure there aren't coincident surfaces,  Otherwise I have no idea. I'm happy to take a look to see if I get similar results.

I took a look at the material on the parking deck wall (the one material that is acting differently). There are three maps in the material. One is set to Normal. It was not the top map in the list. Once I re-ordered the maps with the Normal at the top, it renders the same (and as desired) in both the Farm and single node. 

Can you shed any light on why this would make a difference? Other than that, consider this issue resolved.

It shouldn't make a difference.  I'll put it on the list to try to reproduce.

"Thanks Rich. I also popped-in my license code to the checker, it came up with nXtFarm64_0355.exe Seems to be the render farm though?"

Old versions of nXt for AutoCAD

Is it still possible to download old versions (bought in 2013), of nXt for AutoCAD? Got a new PC, but cannot find my installation file. Thanks.See More

"Almost certainly.  A fix may be difficult at this point.  The code has not been touched in years."

Reflected background brightness

In Accurender I can turn up the brightness of the reflected background, but when I send the same render to the farm, it renders as the default brightness.Possibly an oversight or a bug?See More
