Okay, a couple more questions.When AR Studio is running inside AutoCAD, I can't work on the CAD model unless I close Studio down. Is this correct behaviour?How do I add a new light in Studio? I can…Continue

nXt vs Studio

Here's the first proper test I've managed to do between nXt and Studio.The main differences I immediately notice are:Ambient light levels seem to be much lower, making the light sources more extreme…Continue

"Yes, it will be different.  Typing arstudio should be roughly the same operation as "running a quick test render"-- it may be a little slower, and the first time you type it, it will certainly be slower (it was before). …"

Peter Milner replied to Peter Milner's discussion AR Studio texture editing
"Okay. Another question on textures: In nXt you can layer different textures and bump maps to create a more complex material. For example, the Oak veneer material (image attached) uses two bump maps: one for the grain and one for the flecks. In…"

"Okay. It appears to only match for the original window size when Studio is launched. Changing the window size from large to small, or vice versa causes a mismatch."

Peter Milner replied to MES's discussion Animation using WalkAbout in CAD.
"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…"

Peter Milner replied to norton torres's discussion how to export a accurender file to accurender studio
"Accurender images can be edited in nXt Image Editor, Accurender Studio images can be edited in ArImage Editor. I don't think you can open one type in the other's editor."

Could you pull out the furniture in, "Fulcrum CE 05" save the file and share? I like to see how you treat your lights?

Yes.  Use WalkAbout and select the Two-Point Perspective Projection.

Hi Roy....do u mean that nxt 2 point projection option can solve my problem is it? Because autocad camera point at the top, normally the vertical line look not straight as the photo shown.

nXt has a two-point projection option in WalkAbout.

hi peter milner,I just have a look of your photo. I need your advise for the photo camera point. As I know Autocad only have 2 point instead of 3 point. But I saw your photo vertical line is straight. How to do it?

Continuous Recessed Lighting Issues

Hi I use AutoCAD Architecture and have been having on going problems with a recessed can light block. I have completed 3 renderings now in which I have had to spend days trying to get my recessed lighting to work. Other lights work, and occasionally some of the can recessed lights will show up. I have exploded the block and added them individually, I have aimed the light and rotated it every which way, but most of the time nothing works.  I have tested out the problem on my current rendering…See More
