    .fza file?

    I use them for two reasons: In general, it's a safe practice to have a second backup file of your work in progress, in this case, more up to date than the regular .fzb ones. Secondly, I use autosave by operations (20) and not by time because I can generate an autosave backup file on purpose when I want to. The reasons could be many, for example, before applying a complex operation or to use a tool that might freeze formZ... or explore some crazy changes with freedom and without commitment. This way, you know that you keep a safe file in case something goes wrong. To force the autosave, I draw points on the background until saved and then undo the necessary steps. I prefer this way and not save an unnecessary new copy, producing extra files that I don't need. These kind of reasons and methods are very personal, of course.

    .fza file?

    Should they be generated even if I have it set to "Save to Project File"? Which is how I setup every file. I use Time Machine for regular backups and also Clone my entire drive every day.

    .fza file?

    They are the autosave files which happen if you have formZ set to Save after every x minutes or x operations. Enabling or disabling is in the Preferences Menu. You can change how often they are created and where you want them stored. I personally like to store them in their own directory and then delete Tham when there start to be a lot of them. You don't need to keep them, or even to create them but they are handy if you do something that screws up the file you are working on because then you you only lose things back to your last autosave. They can also be handy if you want to go back to the way you had the model a few hours or days ago. Autosaving can become a bit of a nuisance when you're working on a VERY large file because when the autosave happens it affects system performance, but on the whole I find them useful, for that one time when things get totally messed up. I save them to a SSD drive, so that minimizes the time the autosave takes. Often I'll delete them all after I've finished a work session, or finish the project. Hope that helps. Douglas

    .fza file?

    Hi Paul, these are the autosave files that formZ generates, according to your preferences in Preferences/Project/Autosave. My recommendation is to keep them always enabled, and I use the following options. Saludos

    Reflections

    Incase someone else is having the same problem It's the Saturation slider in the Global Illumination section of V-Ray Settings. It's set to 1 by default
  16. Very nice! Is it a showroom? The only thing I think I would do differently is that I would use a warmer light. After all, it's for home use. Other than that, I think it's awesome!

    Reflections

    Hello, Can anyone tell me how to stop the green from the grass floor reflecting of the ceiling in the image below? The material parameters on the right are for the ceiling. I have reflection turned off. Thanks.

    Very Long Extensions List

    *suggestion* formZ should hide those in a Python extensions sub folder. See: "Import" "Export" "Plane Projection"

    Very Long Extensions List

    They are Python scripts that are inside the formZ/formZ Pro 9.x/Scripts folder. Just move them to another folder, and they will not be loaded. Some of them replace the old ones from versions 6/7/8 and are useful... good! Others look like tests or work in progress.
  24. Just did a clean install of Catalina and then Re-installed my formZ 9 (VRay). For some reason I have a VERY long list of things listed in the Extensions Menu (see attached). Anyone have this happen or know of a way to organize it? Thanks, Douglas

    Big Sur

    You need to use 9.1 pre leased on BigSur. May have some bugs but usable.

    Big Sur

    I'm on a Mac running FormZ Pro 9 on 10.14.5 Mojave. Should I upgrade to Big Sur? Is it working well on Big Sur? Thanks.

    If you don't want the map on one face to move, while you are adjusting one on another, make sure you have the map type set to "flat"
