Render Farm - Stop rendering

Another useful function would be to be able to stop a rendering immediately without having to wait for the tasks to finish. I often send something to the Farm and then realise soon after that…Continue

"Hmmm... I'll take a look at this in nXt for AutoCAD when I get a chance.. it should work. I doubt if the specular maps will work-- I don't think the textured meshes use standard materials.  You are reminding me of why I need to…"

"Roy, all I get from yours is a blue statue. However, George's works perfectly. Another question - is it possible to use the specular maps to change the properties of the different materials e.g. shiny shoes?"

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?

Image does not render correctly in nxt but does in autocad render

HI GuysThe pipework is generated using an external package. The majority of the pipework renders in nxt, but there are a few pipe spools that disappear. I have had a look at their properties and they appear to be the same. However the pipes do render using the AutoCAD standard render. Your help would be greatly appreciatedKind regardsDavidSee More

"Putting Area lights behind external windows help the overhall ambiance. Also rendering with no furniture first makes rendering go faster so when ok with the lighting then you can added the furnitures for the final rendering"

"You can experiment with this setting if you want- sometimes 99% works  fine and slightly improves performance.  Or you can leave it alone-- these heat shutdowns are not really very good for a computer."

"Abracadabra; adjusting 'Maximum Processor State' (in 'Processor Power Management') -so it does not exceed 95% of its capabilities seems to be doing the trick - as Roy pointed out. Thanks! Will try new thermal compound anyway -…"

George Ioannidis replied to Thorsten Hedrich's discussion Computer restarts
"Doesn't that mean that turning your CPU 95% down it will run only at 5% of its full horsepower? Does it mean that the rendering will then run 20X longer than of full CPU throttle? Or did you mean to set the CPU usage to 95%? Are those 5% enough…"
