AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

This is the first preview of the new nXtRender Batch.

You should only try this if you are adventuresome, and willing to make your way through some undocumented stuff. and not get mad at Rich and I if some things are not working properly.

If you want to try this, you can download it from here:


http://www.mediafire.com/file/em8aq6v0535r8j0/nXtRender_AC_Batch_MB...

And just install it.

This is Beta Test Add-on to nXt and AutoCAD at this point. Later it will be integrated into the nXt install. It should work with most recent versions of nXt. And it should work for AutoCAD 2010-2014 (We haven't tested every possible combination yet)

After downloading, you will get a .ZIP file with a message like this:

Click on the message to install it.

New Ribbon

After installation, a new Ribbon should appear in AutoCAD

Racecar

The Race car loads the nXt sidebar menu (the same as typing in nXt).

Help Button

The ? loads an about box:

(The 'Synch Options' button on the bottom will import some settings made while rendering, but not material changes (yet) from the nXtRender Batch Renderer)

Render Button

The green button will extract your current model and save it to the disk for use with the Batch Rendering process.

After Extract, the Batch Renderer will load as a separate process with this dialog:

You can set the render size, number of passes, etc.

And then start rendering.

I will add more documentation here later, but for now you may need to just try some things out.

UV Mapping.

i dont know what hapend with material?...

Had situations like this before too.

Is there any chance you could post or send me the model so that I could track it down?

Which do you want the AutoCAd file or the Batch render one? Why do I send it?

As the compression of this is about 11MB. 

Send the AutoCAD DWG. Rich suspects that the materials were not embedded, and that he has the paths wrong to read the original materials. - or some other similar problems.

If the problem is this, or something else we can fix it better if we can start with a model. Our email will support up to 20MB files, so just send it support@renderplus.com

File sent.

Has anything being done to have this work earlier versions of AutoCad?

So far just 2010-2013.

What version are you looking for?

Cannot seems to get it to work with AutoCad 2010.

See this thread:

It explains what arx to load if you are running in a version of AutoCAD that doesn't have Ribbons.

"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…"

"The problem is when I'm running several renders over a weekend. How will I know how much time to allocate to each one? I wouldn't want them to run for the same amount of time, as one may over-cook to no extra benefit, while another is…"

"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."

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"I suspect it will take a lot longer without the noise filter. These similar renders ran for 5 minutes each. nXt performed 127 passes and Studio performed 344 passes. Incidentally, is it possible to set a render running to a certain number of…"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Reliance on the noise filter does concern me a little. A lot of my work involves wood grain and fabrics, both of which can have varying degrees of texture which affect the way light is reflected. With the noise filter off, are renders likely to take…"

"Yes, that works now, though a bit glitchy. Dragging and dropping materials doesn't work (is it supposed to?)."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Found it-- it's not working properly if the palette is docked.  For now if you drag the AccuRender Studio palette and make it floating everything works.  I'll see what I can do."
