AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Hi,

I want to create a "fly thru" or "walk thru" animation using Nxt in CAD 2015.  Anyone has experience with this and would like to share how to use it? Any important tips?

Thank you!

Sorry you're not getting a better response here-- our animation stuff is pretty rudimentary.  Hoping someone will still chime in though.  I haven't looked at this stuff for such a long time, my guess is that the software I used to use for stitching single frames into animation files, for example, is probably obsolete and maybe unavailable.

Is CoMotion no longer being updated?

Its been years for me too. 

I think Daniel spent some time getting CoMotion running again.

As to stitching frames, the tool I used to use wasn't working last time I tried, but I did find a tool called VirtualDub that works well.

CoMotion works but it doesn't do anything more than Accurender does. It used to have acceleration, camera roll, zoom and object animation, but sadly all of this has disappeared.

In Accurender you can create a camera path and a target path, then decide how many frames you want which will determine how fast the camera moves. This is then rendered as individual images which then need to be combined to create a single animation.

I used Rad Video tools to stitch frames together from here: http://www.radgametools.com/smkdown.htm

Very simple, but effective.

Groundcover Issues

Hello,I am hoping to get some clarity on how to modify and add groundcover. I have searched everywhere on the forum and online to find how to save a plant as .ArGroundcover, but I cannot find anything. I am using AccuRender Plant Editor and once I finish editing the plant that I want to use as a groundcover, I click "save plant as", but all it allows me to save as is .ArTree. I have a deadline to get this render finished, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out. See More

"That sorted it - using the Studio camera and then selecting "Get AutoCAD view"."

"Interesting.  ArStudio has its own WalkAbout-like feture, it's the little camera button.  If you do it while the preview is running you should see the view changes automatically in the rendering."

"I'm having trouble getting the desired view in Studio. I've tried setting the view in nXt walkabout and then using that to set the AutoCAD view. However, when I render from Studio, it gives me something different (see images below)."
