AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I've been using Accurender 4 running in AutoCAD 2006.  Both are 32 bit programs which I have running in Windows 10 64 bit, using Longbow Converter.  It has actually been working pretty well, but suddenly I can't get it to save rendered images.  I tell it to save, but then the saved file does not show up in the directory which I have saved it to.

As I said, it had been working well, and I had been saving images without any problems, but now it just won't save them.  I don't know what changed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Maybe some administration rights in particular folders could cause that. Check the destination folder's read-write security properties in windows explorer. If needed, add yourself in the list of full read write rights users.

I don't know if this is a "clue" to the problem, but I tried rendering with radiosity turned off, and I was able to save the file.  It's just a jpg file, so I don't know why that should make any difference, although the rendering time is significantly less with radiosity turned off.  Maybe I should try reducing the number of radiosity steps (currently set at 500) and see if that helps.

"Yeah-- I understand.  I just think you may find you have a similar problem in this new engine with trying to estimate how many passes will be good enough.   That can vary a lot. You're always going have some error, allocating…"

"It's an easy feature to add, but I'm pretty sure with this new version you'll find a time constraint to be more reliable.  The rendering below is probably done already, with a noise filter, or close to it."
