Importing ADT files

I am new to Revit. I am working is Architectural Desktop 2004. Are there some white papers of how I can take a finished ADT model into Revit and render it? Would this be an appropriate thing to do, or should I stick with VIZ?

Any web links for integrating the two would be helpful.

Thanks.

You could bring it into Revit, but I'm not sure it would be worth the effort. You'll stil have to sort through a lot of material assignments just as you would in Viz. In fact in the time it takes you to get it all finished in ADT/Viz, I could brobably redraw it from scratch in Revit.

Hi -- if you mean Vizrender (the only form of Viz that links to ADT2004 files), why would you want to bring the model into Revit to render? To my taste, Accurender's results are not as pretty as Viz family renderings, but they are good. If the model remains in ADT, you can link to Vizrender with one click.
If you don't want to recreate the model in Revit for some other reason, why go through the extra work? You can work from scratch in Revit next time. Am I missing something? If so, sorry.
Bob
PS-- I was told last March at an Autodesk roadshow that removing the "bought in" Accurender and replacing it with Autodesk's own product was slated for Revit 6. In the meantime, it turned out that Accurender was too deeply embedded to replace so quickly. I would expect that work continues on that, but have not heard more.

I guess what I'm trying to sort out is what is the best tool to use to render an ADT model. I have a house I created in ADT. Now I want to render it. Would I be better off using the VIZ render with ADT or would I get a better rendering if I use Revit? I have access to both.

Thanks.

I'm going to assume you are not nearly familiar with Revit as ADT...so for this project, stick with ADT/VizRender. VizRender will do a very nice job for you. Try out your next project in Revit.
