Just uploaded a prototype of a stand-alone version of the renderer I'm calling nXt Studio.  It reads .3dm files, includes a new material model and newish render engine, features an "always rendering"…Continue

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Oliver Jones's discussion Pixelation on Glass
"It's not the glass, per se, that's the problem.  What you're seeing is a reflection of an hdr from a flat surface. (Try substituting smooth stainless steel for the glass and you'll see what I mean.)   A higher…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Luis Manuel Pinho's discussion Bands appearing in rendering
"Hi Luis-- This is a procedural wood material which doesn't normally work very well for your type of application.  I'm surprised it has worked at all for you in the past.   These tend to work better for small objects, and even…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to chub's discussion Glass not rendering correctly
"We could investigate further, if you like.  You'd need to send the model, or a portion of it, for us to test."

"Thanks-- I'll look at it in the next couple of days."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Rob Ladd's discussion a problem with one of the fillets as seen in the attached images
"I have a couple of ideas re: what could be going wrong internally-- any chance we could get the model?  If so, and it's too large to attach here, let me know-- I'll get Scott to send you an upload link."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Andrew Nowicki's discussion Flamingo nXt versus AccuRender nXt
"No, sorry, the dwg output in Rhino does not include Flamingo information.  It may be possible to do in the future if there's more interest in it."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Will Sturdy's discussion Sky HDRi Horizon Question
"My best guess-- Scott's got a much wider-angled lens in his shot.  I'm pretty sure your narrow field of view is causing us to zoom in very tight on the HDRI.  This will only work well if the HDRI is very high res.  If this…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Mark Naden's discussion Render resolution limits
"Not that I know of.  Why is such a high resolution required?  Often a tool like photoshop can be used to "upsample " a rendered image.  It's pretty darn rare that 200 million original rendered pixels are required."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to kbwegner's discussion Specifying the proper resolution
"Did you get the second private message?  That link should go right through.  If not, send your dropbox folder ro me privately and I'll try that."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to kbwegner's discussion Specifying the proper resolution
"I sent you a link to the revised file in a private message.  Let me know when you've got it and I'll pull it off the McNeel site.  I'll ask around for scale figures-- but the ones you've got look great.  A little…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to kbwegner's discussion Specifying the proper resolution
"I tried a few things with your model to make it more responsive and improve the quality a little: I moved the model closer to the origin. it was about 800 meters away-- far enough to begin to cause precision problems that can result in visible…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to kbwegner's discussion Specifying the proper resolution
"Hmmm... that mechanism used to accept very large files.  I sent you a private message with a dropbox link.  Let me know if it works.  I can probably look at it tomorrow morning."

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to kbwegner's discussion Specifying the proper resolution
"Not sure what you mean by render mode.  If you want to upload the model I can take a look.  Zip it up and use this link.   I'm mostly disturbed here by the long render times-- it's going to make experimentation very…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to kbwegner's discussion Specifying the proper resolution
"Normally final images use resolutions of 1 million pixels or higher-- 2-3 million is probably typical these days.  Also 15 passes is usually inadequate-- we like to see more than a hundred. I'm not sure why this particular image is so…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Rob Ladd's discussion crash when adding decal...
"Let me know if you figure anything else out that might make this reproducible here.  Typically I can't do anything until I get something that actually crashes on my workbench.  In the meantime, a workaround might include loading the…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Rob Ladd's discussion decals...
"We're making good progress on a version of Flamingo that integrates more closely with the Rhino stuff.  We're still a little ways away from a public beta-- but yes, this one should allow our decals to be displayed by Rhino."
