AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Started a rendering and reduced the ACAD/nXt windows. Started another ACAD session and did some separate work. Have closed the second session of ACAD...

Can't get the render window to come up...although the ACAD window comes up and is available to use. Have confirmed that the rendering is proceeding by noting the number of passes is increasing.

It's nXt Version 1.0.348 (yea, I know....old)...., Autocad Architecture 2016 and Windows 10.

Screen shop attached...Help?

Thanks,

John

Let it run overnight, thinking the window might be slow to appear due to processing. No luck...It was still processing though.

Clicked the x in the little preview window at the bottom of the screen.

The rendering window preview disappeared.

Clicked the start a rendering button and the rendering window appeared and asked if I wanted to save the current rendering…. I did.

All’s well….

Hover your mouse over the AutoCad session on the taskbar all hidden windows should pop up.

then right and click maximize the session you are interested in.

 

That's the way it's supposed to work....just wasn't cooperating. All the other windows popped up, just not the rendering window.

Tested it after with a simple model/rendering and it worked as expected. I have no answer as to the odd behavior. All's well now. Will set it to autosave in the future....

Thanks,

John

"Yeah-- I understand.  I just think you may find you have a similar problem in this new engine with trying to estimate how many passes will be good enough.   That can vary a lot. You're always going have some error, allocating…"

"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…"

"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."

Peter Milner replied to Roy Hirshkowitz's discussion AccuRender Studio
"I suspect it will take a lot longer without the noise filter. These similar renders ran for 5 minutes each. nXt performed 127 passes and Studio performed 344 passes. Incidentally, is it possible to set a render running to a certain number of…"

"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?)."

"Found it-- it's not working properly if the palette is docked.  For now if you drag the AccuRender Studio palette and make it floating everything works.  I'll see what I can do."
