AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I have not used NXT in about a month but I went back to it for the rendering of a product I was putting together for fuel efficiency in motor engines. Surprisingly, I discovered NXT was defaulting to render at 740 X 404 pixels no matter what resolution I specified. I have been trying to sort this out in the last 48 hours without success. What could be wrong? The last time I rendered something, everything was okay. The only thing I can figure out is that perhaps NXT is jealous cos I have been flirting with Lumion lately. Can someone help me?

Windows 10 Pro
AutoCad 2017
27" iMac i7 4.4GHz 64-bit
16GB RAM, 3TB HD
2GB AMD RADEON R9 M290X

It was all working perfectly!

After the 30 day trial period, nXt goes into "Demo" mode and limits the resolution of the rendering to 300,000 pixels. It sounds like you are in that state.

Could you check your RPS License dialog and make sure that the license number is entered and authorized, and not in demo mode?

"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)."

"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."
