AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

I know we can now select a set of images to make a texture set. It works great with products like Arroway and others. It usually will recognize the bump and specular maps and give you adjustments specific to those types of maps.

What are the naming styles it looks for? When I try with my own creations, it just sees them as standard maps and I end up having to modify with the advanced tab anyway.

You can still modify them more easily in Texture Set UI.

 

Including _BUMP, _SPEC, _DISP, _NORM somewhere in the filename should work.

in the (veery distant) future, the possibility to add user-defined masks such as: *_b.*,*_d.* ... would be helpful.

I figured that. I looked at the Arroway textures I had and I think they used _d, _S, _b. I'll try adding a few extra letters next time :)

como se manejaria sta textura en conjunto? se tomarian los parametros qeu da el arroway en su catalogo? como se maneja en el arbol de texturas? cual seria el bumb, el difuso? el especular?
It will recognize the four types above + normal and opacity maps.  You don't need to include all of them, just the ones you want.  Ambient occlusion maps don't work.
Se manejan como conjunto de texturas?....tenemos alguna lectura sobre eso?
There a little bit of information here.

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)."
