    manolis got a reaction from Justin Montoya in GPU in Thea   
    Hi Anwar,
     
    As Justin said there is support for the 10xx series, currently offered as a separate download (Windows only).
    You can download the separate dll's from this page (at the bottom).
    You will need to replace the original dll's.
    For the plugin, copy-paste the dll files in the TheaRender folder inside formZ Plugins directory.
    If you are using Thea Studio, the folder is at <Studio installation directory>/Plugins/Presto.
    Make sure that you are using the latest plugin (or Studio) version (.1447) and that you have updated your GPU drivers.

    manolis got a reaction from AHTOH in Is anybody here?   
    Hello again, there should not be any issues or conflicts testing Thea in the same machine. We did have some reports of (mostly minor) conflicts when multiple rendering plugins are loaded in the same session but with the help of AutoDesSys we are moving forward.

    Hi pkcn, 
     
    We are here and of course TheaRender is in active development. 
    Let me know if there is anything I can help you with.

    Hi, 
     
    This issue has been fixed, it's not in a public build yet as we would like to finalize some new features before releasing a new version.

    Hi,
     
    The Thea tool icon should be under the "Extensions" category in the manager. It looks like there is an issue with properly registering the tool leading to this problem. We will look into this further and most probably this will be fixed in the next plugin release. Thank you both for providing this information.

    manolis got a reaction from 3dworks in Thea for FormZ - Now Available   
    Hi Markus,
     
    It is. Set a network mode (Display Options > Rendering > Distribution) and then start rendering in the Darkroom. In the other machine(s) launch Thea Client instances and configure each one to connect to the server machine.

    manolis got a reaction from etroxel in Alpha channel background   
    Hi Evan, no, the png option saves the selected channel (eg color) as is, so there's no added transparency.
    I'll make sure there is an option for this in the next revision as in the Studio.
     
    The plugin's manual?

    manolis got a reaction from -andrew- in A few rendering and material questions - faceting, translucency   
    Hi everyone,
     
    Regarding the artifact, displacing one of the two objects (even with the slightest amount) should fix it.
     
    ps Here is a link to Thea's light setup & optimization guide.

    Hi Allan,
     
    You can enable alpha by going to Darkroom > PRODUCTION > Channels in Studio and Display Options > Rendering > Channels in the plugin.
    Please let me know if that's not what you are looking for.

    manolis got a reaction from dubir in Curious FormZer queries   
    Hi Des,
     
    The plugin does not work directly with Renderzone but will render any generated procedural textures.  No conversion occurs for Maxwell materials.
     
     
    Thea instancing system is independent. As proxies (base models) you can use existing FormZ objects or Thea models. In the latter case the model is referenced, no geometry is imported in FormZ.
    Regardless of the proxy type (FormZ or Thea model) you can use bounding boxes instead of the actual geometry for the instances.
    (There is also the option to use the geometry instead - this can be useful if you want to create surface instances which can have different materials). Instancing operates in two modes: automatic, where you provide values for population, scaling, rotation, etc. and the plugin creates instances on the surface of the picked object or manual where you use the mouse to pick the exact location of every instance. FormZ components are currently not linked with the instancing mechanism.
     
    Regarding the conversion process so far we didn't have any specific issues but we are always looking for ways to improve the whole procedure.
     
    Animation is not supported in the open beta but it is one of the top priorities for the near future.
     
    Thanks for you post!
     
    Kind Regards,
    Manolis
