"Here's the latest render using metallic materials. The chrome now looks a lot better. I do feel though that the reflected light on the back wall is too bright."

"Pacing a mirror on the back wall (reflections = 1.0, noise = 0.0), you can see the difference more clearly (top image is nXt)."

"You can see from these two images that there is definitely something wrong with reflective surfaces. It appears the light is being reflected, but not objects or textures. In the nXt version (top image), the carpet texture is being reflected in the…"

"ARDECAL now works. Here's the image after 10 minutes of rendering. I do have a slight concern that reflective surfaces seem rather dull. This is particularly evident on the end frame of the desk and the base of the chair."

"Here's a direct comparison between nXt Path Tracer and AR Studio. Both ran for just under 2 hours."

"Thanks Roy. That did the trick. I just have to wrap my head round the logic behind it."

"Also, when I reduce the strength of the decal, instead of becoming transparent, it becomes grey. How would I set it to show some base material coming through?"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Adding the decal from fresh using ARDECAL worked, even with my version. Next question: how do I add more than one decal to an object?"
Nov 10, 2020
Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"No, there doesn't seem to be that option. It's not a black & white image. It's a black image on a transparent background. So I'm not sure where the white is coming from."

"I've just tried the png file you sent and now I get this:"
Oct 28, 2020
Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Looking at the png file you sent me, rather than having an alpha channel, it just has the background colour removed so that it is transparent. I think there's some confusion in terminology here."
Oct 28, 2020
Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Okay. I've changed it to a png file. What steps do I take within AR Studio to get it to work properly"
Oct 23, 2020
Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Well, I've tried what you suggested, but I still can't get it to work. I'll send you the model and the decal. Maybe I've got something wrong."

Could you pull out the furniture in, "Fulcrum CE 05" save the file and share? I like to see how you treat your lights?

Yes.  Use WalkAbout and select the Two-Point Perspective Projection.

Hi Roy....do u mean that nxt 2 point projection option can solve my problem is it? Because autocad camera point at the top, normally the vertical line look not straight as the photo shown.

nXt has a two-point projection option in WalkAbout.

hi peter milner,I just have a look of your photo. I need your advise for the photo camera point. As I know Autocad only have 2 point instead of 3 point. But I saw your photo vertical line is straight. How to do it?

"Ah-- so that's a function of the material type.  The standard material won't give you a mirror anymore.  You need to change the material to metallic and you should get something more familiar.  Use the Type popdown on the…"
