    Is Thea for FormZ dead ?

    Thea V2.2 has been released looks like the FZ-Plugin is finally out... ☹️
  2. I am using FZ with vectorworks and revit. FZ export of dwg/acis works 2018 well for both. (Markus/Hugo) FormZ: the everyday fun part, but know your workarounds. Vectorworks: works well to get drawings from FZ/3d import - just what you would wish FormZ layout would be doing. Revit: works well for quick visuals on realtime / gpu engine from FZ import and eats gazillions of polygons, just like you wish FZ would do. And yes, if we ever get to see V9 (which I sincerely hope for) it should at least include IFC. I dont think FZ needs much more BIM capability than that - if you need serious BIM you are most likely not using FMZ anyway.

    V-Ray FormZ GPU Rendering Future ?

    Thanks guys, yes I am (stuck) with High Sierra and using CUDA. My question really goes to ADS: - Is the Vray Plugin for "GPU rendering" on OSX being developed any further at this moment and will it be updated some time near future for a next Version. ? Most people interested in rendering from within FZ will most likely not buy that plugin now without further perspective. (Then go and buy the new MacPro to run Vray on CPU ...? I guess not) After spending (some) money on Maxwell and Thea, if Vray goes down that path I would have much rather paid the money to go to ADS for FZ development. I just say this in perspective of staying on Mac for modeling FZ but rendering in Windows again (not FormZ then) Thx
  4. Are there any signs of: - AMD support in a future Vray/FMZ release (i.e. Metal/OSX) for GPU rendering ? - Continuation of Nvidia drivers/CUDA support, or will this forever mean sticking to High Sierra - is this at all being further developed for FormZ ? (I know: no support from Mojave on and also not mentioned for next OSX relase, not discussing Nvidia/Apple relations here) IF I want to use OSX AND GPU rendering with Vray/FMZ, whats the perspective ? Thanks
  5. Fixed by installing previous version of Vray.
  6. It never occurred to me that I had to click on set devices, but it did not work, it is asking for root privileges but even running FZ as root did not work. On fresh install again it appears that librt_cuda.so is installed directly in "V-Ray for formZ" but Vray is looking for it in the "plugins" folder inside of "V-Ray for formZ". I´ll send an email. Thx
  7. Hello world. No one ? @Tech: can you confirm this working for you ?
  8. Thanks Justin, point taken but I would rather stay on macOS. Usually Tech at least replies something along the lines of „this is working fine here“ , or „yes there is an issue“. And apparently there are not many people left using OSX/Vray/Nvidia/FZ thanks to Apples policies. Using Vray without GPU defeats the point, and so I hope someone can come up with either „this works: user error“ or „this works using OSX version X.xx...“; at this point I just cant render and its been two weeks. But who knows next thing you know Thea comes back using AMD and Vray is dumped.... happy holidays.
  9. Please Tech - anything I can at least try to get this going again ? How can I convince librt_cuda.so to load properly ?
  10. I ended up reinstalling everything from scratch: latest High Sierra, latest CUDA and Nvidia drivers, latest FZ and Vray. Does not work still. Light caches and merging works , but once "rendering" starts its garbled. No toon shader, just new file, Material 1 (white). I get a vray error in the log which seems to be the whats causing it. (librt_cuda.so) I can run the Vray benchmark fine. What to do next ?
  11. Anyone else ? reinstalling Vray and thrashing FZ prefs did not help. screenshot from a blank new file:
  12. That should be correct. You can test a section at half height: the resulting hexagon then has equal length segments. (For a built example house google "Piet Blom cube house")

    Stereo Panoramas ?

    right - I forgot doing that...

    Stereo Panoramas ?

    Thanks for the tip Andrew, after unchecking "Hybrid" this produced one image using "progressive, use GPU, Framebuffer". But just once - now it does not work again. After "building light cache" all is scrambled again. Only CPU rendering works but this takes ages compared to GPU... I also thrashed my prefs but it didnt help so back to setting all shortcuts, UI etc. Annoying to say the least...
