Material and Tree Icons

Somewhere along the line when we set up our new computer (Win 10) we goofed on the file associations of the material and trees files. The icons within WIndows Explorer don't read...the tree icons are blank and the material icons are all just a red sphere (we associated the material files with XtMaterialEditor64.exe today, trying to fix it....they were previously just blank like the trees).Under ?, About...it says we are on nXt version 1.0.348Under ?, RPS License, it says Product: nXtRender for…See More

"Glad to hear it-- the 6 million pixels or so which this gave you should work-- provided people aren't too close to the sign."

"Thanks Roy...Guess we just need to let them run as long as time allows. The high resolution one came about for a job sign and groundbreaking presentation boards need. We ended up just using 150 dpi at around 40 passes - worked out well. Mounted…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to John Ferris's discussion Odd Resolution Issue
"The tone operator will be very fidgety at a low number of passes-- it normally takes a hundred or so for things to settle down.  Obviously something went very wrong at 600 DPI-- a whopping resolution of 5400 x 18000-- or more than 97 million…"

Render Window

Posted on October 8, 2010 at 9:43am 0 Comments

Odd question: I started a rendering then minimized ACAD. I can see that the rendering is processing by the tab at the bottom of the screen, but can only bring ACAD back up. The rendering window won't restore...maybe I'm not waiting long enough? I can highlight/depress the tab, but nothing happens. Any ideas? Thanks - John

"If you're trying to render an older model w/ older materials, you probably need to convert the xrefs individually by going into each drawing.  It's been a while since we've had to do this so I can't quite remember."
