Accustudio 2016

I've spent the past few months (OK, it has been 8) getting Accustudio updated and running again. As I was putting all of the Models, Textures and Materials together. I realized what a rich history…Continue

In an effort to get back up to speed on coMotion for December. I revisited the Accustudio Layer Render program. I got to to work with AutoCAD 2014 to 2017. It is a fun little toy to render still…Continue

coMotion 2.0 014

Small bug with the OpenDCL interface used in coMotion. If you downloaded and installed coMotion between 11/20/16 and 11/21/16 (yep just one day) you will need to 'downgrade' the OpenDCL. Go to…Continue

"I've posted the AccuStudio Plants version 7.1. It was the last version before the migration to nXt. You can download the PLIB & Materials at AccuStudio."

I'm in the process of moving an old Acad2004 and AR4 installation over to a different computer.  I've been building a custom materials library for over a decade now in that old AR4 installation and I successfully converted it over to AR5 a couple of years ago.  I loaded all the old AccuStudio materials and plant libraries over to the new AR4, and they work fine but my custom materials library is empty.  It shows up in the list of libraries but there's nothing in it.  I need a tutorial explaining how to "pack and go" a customized MLIB for use on another computer.

Hi, Daniel...  I'm going to try to do an animation for the first time since AR3 back in 2002.  I've currently got setups for Acad2011/AR5 and Acad2004/AR4 (Build 1) on my computer.  I'm looking for any tutorials out there for setting up a camera path for coMotion.  I downloaded coMO2_setup from the old AccuStudio website... but that site looks a little scary these days with all the Forum topics about fake Louis Vuitton stuff.  What's going on there?  Anyway, let me know the parts I need to do the best quality renderings via either Acad2004 or Acad2011.

Hallo Daniel


Ich hoffe es geht die gut und du hast das schlimmste überstanden.


Gibt es eigentlich schon etwas neues wieder von Comotion für AR5??

Just remember Danial,...stand forward in the batters box and don't be afraid to swing.

I'm two years out myself and the good part is I'm getting a few days off every few months for check-ups.

Hi Daniel

Is there really something new from comotion 014 or are you not at this more?

Hallo Daniel

Ich bin jetzt schon eine ganze Zeit dabei Comotin 013 mit AR5 Build 249 am laufen zu bekommen. Leider stürzt mein 013 immer ab, wenn er mehrere Einzelbilder hintereinander rechnen soll.


Frage: Warum

Hallo Daniel


Leider habe ich Probleme mit Comotion 012. Siehe meine Acadfehlermeldung. Was ist da schief gelaufen, das es bei anderen läuft und bei mir nicht????

Hallo Daniel

Die Fehlermeldungen in 011 wann werden di ungefähr behoben sein. Ich arbeite hier mit 011 und Build 232 und habe dabei jede Mende Probleme.
Wann wird das Speicherleck in 011 behoben sein?? Das tritt immer dann auf, wenn ich mit Path Tracer rendere.

Hallo Daniel

Wie sieht es aus mit Comotion 012??
Was machen die Fehlermeldungen in 011 die ich Dir beschieben habe??

"Hi Chris, The modelling, lighting and rendering are very good on these three images. However, I feel they are let down slightly by the "Photoshopped" plants, cars and people. I think it's mainly to do with the shadow direction and…"

"Thank you Roy. The more physical based effects nXt has, the more realistic pictures it will compute. All of those need a lot of computing power under (or on top of) our desks though. Are you doing any move to engage GPUs on rendering process in nXt?…"
