Saving Rendered Images
2 Replies

I've been using Accurender 4 running in AutoCAD 2006.  Both are 32 bit programs which I have running in Windows 10 64 bit, using Longbow Converter.  It has actually been working pretty well, but…Continue

A bit about me

My name is Tom.  I am a retired architect.  I managed to salvage AutoCAD 2006 and AccuRender 4 when I retired.  Since both are 32-bit systems, I have them running on Windows XP (AutoCAD won't even install on a 64-bit operating system, I tried both in Win 7 and Win 10). 

So anyway, I am keeping some very old and outdated programs running, but just for personal projects which have no commercial value to anyone but me.  At best I am semi-proficient in AutoCAD and Accurender.  I'll post some renderings on here when I'm finished working on the current project, which is a "retirement" house that is "net-zero" energy consumption.

"Yes, the glass material translated as Refractive automatically."

"Yeah-- like I mentioned the caustics are accurate but could be annoying.  Things that might alter it include changing the sun angle so it's not striking the chair's metal surfaces so directly, changing the roughness of the chair…"

"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."

"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…"

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

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"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…"

"It's interesting-- overall the quality of this interior is very high for that short amount of processing, and may be acceptable for certain scenes.  In this one, however, there are some reflective caustics that are taking longer to…"

"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."
