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 something needs changing. My only options then are to either wait for the tasks to complete, which could be hours, or shut down Render Farm and restart it.See More

"I'll take that approach then.  It will require checking a box and typing in two numbers for the exposure settings for each ArImage, which you can get from your reference drawing by using Image->Info in the menu."

"The animation panel in nXt has a Farm button at the bottom allowing you to use the renderfarm. Also, if I remember rightly, shouldn't there be control over the speed of the camera movement, lens length and other elements?"

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?
