"The problem is when I'm running several renders over a weekend. How will I know how much time to allocate to each one? I wouldn't want them to run for the same amount of time, as one may over-cook to no extra benefit, while another is…"

"Reliance on the noise filter does concern me a little. A lot of my work involves wood grain and fabrics, both of which can have varying degrees of texture which affect the way light is reflected. With the noise filter off, are renders likely to take…"

"Yes, that works now, though a bit glitchy. Dragging and dropping materials doesn't work (is it supposed to?)."

"Type-in - If I highlight the number, the highlight doesn't stick. If I click anywhere in the value box, the the cursor doesn't stick. It just disappears. Tagging objects as lights - when I click anywhere in the Studio palette and then move…"

"I've found where to add lighting channels - in the preview rendering window. Would it not make sense to have this button on the lighting tab:"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Okay. I've installed the latest version. Still can't change lighting values by typing in - have to use the up-down arrows. The value box does now display properly. Still have to select object first before clicking on "Tag object as…"

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"Okay, I figured out how to do this: Select the object to be a light first, then click on the + button (it doesn't work if you click the + first and then try to select the object), then make sure you're in perspective view, then re-load the…"

"When opening materials from file, nXt goes to the previous location, whereas ArStudio defaults to a strange network location (I think it's the original download folder where the program was installed from) and I have to navigate through several…"

"I know I've mentioned it before, but the material previews for ArStudio are very poor. It makes it very difficult to differentiate between them."

"I'm experimenting with using ArStudio from scratch without combining it with nXt data. What is the procedure for adding an artificial light?"

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion Accurender Studio on AutoCAD 2022
"Yep, that's working now. However, if I attempt to start arstudio when I'm not in perspective mode, I get a prompt saying perspective view is required. I then click on OK and AutoCAD crashes."

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?

"0295 is up, includes scale factor for preview image and stop after # passes.  Haven't gotten to New light channel option in Lights interface yet.  Check it out if you have a chance (no worries if not.)"

"It's an easy feature to add, but I'm pretty sure with this new version you'll find a time constraint to be more reliable.  The rendering below is probably done already, with a noise filter, or close to it."
