Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering
14 Replies

I have gotten back into animation. I've been using five workstations to produce the segments needed to build my final product. I decided this morning to use the Render Farm to handle some work in the…Continue

Image Editor - Lack of Smooth Gradient

I've rendered about 40 images for product presentation over the past few days via 'batch' rendering directly in nXt and with the nXt Farm with all out put as .nXtImage files so that I could further…Continue

Objects Clipped in Render Farm

Attached is an image showing the output from nXt build 239 rendered in AutoCAD and an identical frame rendered with Render Farm build 236. In the Render Farm output, objects appear to be affected by…Continue

"So...tell me more about materials and lighting. What is carried over and what is not? The online materials don't even come close to what I need or am already using. Is this going to change. Is there a way to use my current materials? ...mapped…"

Barry Thomas replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Hey Roy, Do I need to be running the latest version or NXTRender to make this work. I am on version 1.0.354 on AC2016. Accurender Studio runs, sees materials...etc. no preview, nothing rendered.  BW"

"Akin, If you look at the images above, you'll see that the effect you're looking for only exists on the light color wall. That effect does not exist on the red wall. I took your drawing and eliminated all the other lighting in it, reduced…"

"Using your wall sconce this is what I got.Not exactly what I want. How did you get them to radiate out and showing on the wall."

"I meant the light rays from the wall light fixtures."

Barry Thomas replied to Barry Thomas's discussion Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering
"Well good then, your work is certainly appreciated. There are over forty files all derived from the same geometry in that series. Way too hot to be outside today, so I am going to go through them to identify those which will not render…"

"I'm not-- I'm spending time on it on my account.  There's some reason it's not writing the .nXtModel file correctly, perhaps a bug, perhaps a problem with the AutoCAD drawing."

Barry Thomas replied to Barry Thomas's discussion Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering
"You're welcome to them Akin. I don't understand your question about beams....do you mean the columns? These were quick test renderings done with E0 at low resolution 640x380 for 20 passes."

akinlolu olugboji replied to Barry Thomas's discussion Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering
"Can you share you lighting fixtures on the wall? How did you get the beams to work out so nicely. Nice rendering by the way. E0, E1 or E4? How many passes?"

Barry Thomas replied to Barry Thomas's discussion Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering
"Roy. Don't spend any time on this mess on my account. I pulled the next model in the series. This one was derived entirely from the one with problems rendering on the farm. The only difference is some changes to columns and lighting. It is…"

"I'd love to have this model.  I don't have any open issues with the farm at the moment."

Barry Thomas replied to Barry Thomas's discussion Render Farm - Animation - Not All Objects Rendering
"Roy, I haven't attempted a batch rendering with this configuration. I did run a single image on the farm and got the same result. All images from all farm machines produced the same result when rendering the animation frames on the farm. Note…"

"I got the decals working, but if I then edit one of the materials, the decals disappear when the model reloads. If I then close ArStudio and re-launch it, they're back again."
