AccuRender nXt

advanced rendering for AutoCAD

Can I do this??????????????   with a material.

I have a background image which I need to see, I have a structure (house) which is the main part of the image, it sits on this background and I wish for it to throw a shadow onto a 3d face with a material that only shows shadow.

The material needs to only receive the shadow, but be Transparent for the background image to show behind. So if it works it will look like the shadow is over the background image.

Anyone got some ideas on settings???

Standard render engine only--

Use the Object Property called Alpha Channel to tag the object in question.  You should get shadows (the other engines will work but will not show shadows.)  The example below uses a ground plane-- but any object will work.  If you wish to use other engines you'll need to do a couple of renderings and build the mask by hand.

Ok that worked, thanks for that,

Now how do you control the strength of the shadow?

Photoshop or eq.-- it's in the alpha mask.

or e.g. Sun (Sky, or HDRI) intensity... :)

Old versions of nXt for AutoCAD

Is it still possible to download old versions (bought in 2013), of nXt for AutoCAD? Got a new PC, but cannot find my installation file. Thanks.See More

"Almost certainly.  A fix may be difficult at this point.  The code has not been touched in years."

Reflected background brightness

In Accurender I can turn up the brightness of the reflected background, but when I send the same render to the farm, it renders as the default brightness.Possibly an oversight or a bug?See More
