"Here's a direct comparison between nXt and Studio with all the correct settings. nXt ran for just over 22 minutes with 2000 passes. Studio ran for 23 minutes with 6443 samples. My two concerns are: the graininess of the image and the jagged…"

"Something has gone wrong with the direction of lights. I set it to 0,0,-1 and it keeps reverting to 0,0,0 and no light is being emitted from the source."

"This is where glow would be useful. I've noticed that the beam angle in AR Studio is double the value in nXt. Is that because nXt is reading the angle from the vertical whereas Studio is reading the angle across the whole beam? This would…"

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?
