RPCs in the Render Farm

From a user:I am having a problem with render farm with Autocad Accurender nxt.. The rpc's. will not render in the animations. Do you know if there has been an update to correct this issue? Or will t RPC's just not work in render farm animations? they do work find in animation within the drawing. Also is there a place to ask these kinds of technical questions?  I tried starting a rendering then cancelling then use render farm. However the RPC's just appear as gray objects without materials.See More

"I don't think the windows work quite like that. In fact, the more direct light you have, the quicker the rendering resolves. Create a 600 x 600mm rectangle, turn it into a region and tag it as an area light with 200W. Place it a couple of mm…"

Al,

I wrote a modal old style library browser that I use to let users select old plants for now. The user selects a plant and I make a mesh out of the plant wires and plunk it in the model, I do not currently allow users to modify old style plants.

Rendering in greyscale only

I have downloaded a 30 day trial of Accurender as I wish to get back in to it after a 'render break'. Is there a restriction on the 30 day trial as objects drawn in Architecture appear to have the materials mapped when in model space but only render in greyscale.Other 3D objects such as 3D solids render. Is there a setting that I am missing or is this disabled in the trial version.Thanks in anticipation of a response.See More
