Reflected background brightness
1 Reply

In Accurender I can turn up the brightness of the reflected background, but when I send the same render to the farm, it renders as the default brightness.Possibly an oversight or a bug?Continue

RenderFarm passes and tasks

Got a strange glitch here.On one of our PCs, when sending a render to the Farm, the option to change the number of tasks is greyed out and stuck on 10. However, when a job is sent to the farm, it is automatically broken into 25 tasks.The PC is running the latest versions of nXt and the Farm and has been working perfectly up to  now.Any ideas?See More

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio ground plane
"Yep-- the groundplane in ArStudio should be turned on in that case-- but you will get a rectangle which may need to be sized.  If it's not turning on, that's probably a bug."

"Not to worry. I've just seen that ArStudio has its own version of a ground plane. It just doesn't translate the old nXt one."

"Thank you. I think I jumped from AutoCAD 2011 to 2018 which is when I noticed the problem."

Rich Hart replied to Peter Milner's discussion mapping decals
"Panning while placing decals doesn't work for me in any version starting with AutoCAD 2015 and later. Panning does work in AutoCAD 2013. I'll see if I can figure out what changed and see if we can fix that."

mapping decals

I think this started with AutoCAD 2019:While in the process of mapping a planar decal, it is not possible to pan, only zoom.This can make the process of picking points a bit tricky sometimes.I'm currently using AutoCAD 2020 on Windows 7.See More

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?

Perspective between 3D model and background image on NXT autocad 2015

Hi, I would like to insert my 3D model on an image in background, obviously with the correct position, size and perspective lines.Is there a method to move the 3D model to adapt it at the image in background?At the moment i can only try to setting the position of my 3D model with the Autocad camera and launch the render to control if the position is correct, but it's impossible to find it. I must render my 3D model and put it in my image with Photoshop. Not a great result.Look down here, the…See More
