    RPC now supported with cloud rendering!

    The Wait is Over! Autodesk 360 Cloud-based Rendering for RPC Content is Available. | Archvision's Blog

    Since the release of Autodesk 360 Cloud-based Rendering, the demand to render RPC Content in the cloud has been constant. Initially, only the in-application RPC entourage rendered in the cloud. After much collaboration between ArchVision and Autodesk, RPC rendering support is now available for all ArchVision Dashboard RPC Content objects. Please keep in mind that this is early in the release cycle; user feedback is critical. Let us know how your experience goes!

    How do I enable support?
    To enable support for rendering RPCs in Autodesk 360 download the Autodesk Revit 2014 Update Release 2 from the Autodesk Revit Services & Support page.

    Now if only subscription customers could get unlimited rendering, we'd be onto something.

    You have unlimited rendering at the "basic" settings. Which should produce good enough images for on-screen display to make some decisions. Once the choice is made, bump the settings for the "final" cloud-credit rendering.

    Good to know. I didn't realize the "basic" rendering was "free". But still. It'd be nice if subscription customers didn't have to worry about cloud units and such.

    I'll need to look into it again and see how many units do what, how many we get before we have to pay, etc. etc.

    Apparently on December 13 the credits will be changed again: http://download.autodesk.com/global/...Q_External.pdf

    I get 900 credits a year because of my nine subscription seats but no more. I will now get only 100 'individual' units when I renew and any of the unused previous units will be lost. The other 100 per seat have to go to 'named users', whatever that means. If I want more I have to buy 'shared' units at 100 USD per 100 units.

    Thanks Scott, I know you mean well but...

    How many 'variable' credits will those "final" renderings actually cost? (not) Funny that the FAQ doesn't clearly answer perhaps the most important Q!!!

    WTF does "Variable" help us if there is no 'from-to' provided?

    I'd say none.

    Its easy to find out: fire up a cloud rendering from Revit and start playing with the settings. Before you actually render, a "total" will be displayed in the dialog box. you will know how much credits you will be charged before you commit. Biggest I have seen was 48 units for the largest resolution/best quality setting panorama.

    Wow Scott. You are going to have to do a few renderings to blow your allocation of 750k Units lol

    haha! yes, i should have explained: internally, we have a large pool of credits to use so that we can show customers! Hmmm wonder if i can "cash out"? (considering they are worth about a dollar (US $) a credit!
