    opening old files

    Warning displayed after trying to open. 'this file was saved with a version of form z older than 5.0 on mac OS. Please resave the file in Form Z version 5,6, or 7 and reopen' What do I do if I have 8.5.7 version. I downloaded 6.73 from archives online at www.formz.com but then asked me for the driver from my CD drive. I don't have cd drive. Could you please send me link for the driver don't know which one - running latest mojave install 10.14.3 After installing do I use my current 8.5.7 version passwords for activation?

    maxwell plugin 3.2.1.5

    Hi - Yes I removed all preference files and still the same thing happened. But I found the likely problem. If the maxwell Fire pallette was open the last time I quit Form Z it makes Form Z freeze or slow down the next time I launch Form Z. So untill I close and reopen Maxwell Fire in the current session Form Z will behave as expected. This is the cause.

    maxwell plugin 3.2.1.5

    I changed the value to 0 and also 200000 but no difference. Still froze. I waited around for about two minutes before quitting and a file opened miraculously but if I zoom aor anything like that it froze. I feel that it may be the GPU? I'm using Geforce GTX Titan Gigabyte brand Nvidia Driver 376.53 Active X runtime 12.0 Cuda 8.0.0 It was working fine 1 day ago. Form Z just freezes when PLugin is installed. Or is reallly slooow or just freezes. Could it be a GPU ram issue - but everything else works fine.

    maxwell plugin 3.2.1.5

    Looked at foreground locked timeout forum threads but it is only for Windows 7 machines. Windows 10 doesn't have access to this HKEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP ( run)

    maxwell plugin 3.2.1.5

    I have installed this version but same issue. To confirm what is happening - I went into form Z prefs and turned off open new window at startup. When Form Z launches all of maxwell render plugin initialising finishes but when I open new window it freezes. Any help.
  7. Hi, I'm having same issue but I'm using windows 10. OS build 1607 - 14393.1198 Form Z 8.5.7 - I'm using Maxwell version 3.2.1.5 It was working perfectly fine. Now it stopped working within form Z. Application maxwell works fine. I have replaced the maxwell plugin folder with a newly downloaded maxwell folder. Form Z freezes at launch and unable to click on anything.( plugin installed). Can't click on anything - used task manager to exit Form Z. Troy.

    animation

    Generate animation dialog - launch application to none. Form Z generates all animation frames as .mxs and a base frame .mxs file. Correct. But do I upload to 'rebus' the original package to renderfarm .mxs that form Z creates or all the frames including the base frame .mxs that form z creates after generating animation.

    animation

    In relation to my last post - although I'm sending you small file. I'm really talking about bigger more complex files for walkthroughs for rebus. Rendering out image sequences through rebus.

    animation

    G'day I reset camera and it works thank you for this as I didn't check on top of path. I have attached the maxwell file .mxs it generated after I packaged for render farm. Is this the animation BASE frame your talking about? Rebus asks for image sequences though but aren't these in the file attached? If I have to generate animation locally on my machine to get these .mxs sequences whats the point if they are at such low settings or do I reopen each frame and reset size and quality then send these sequences to Rebus? Thankyou. test anim View 2 1.mxs.zip

    animation

    Hi Support, I have generated a quick file from Form Z as a camera along a spline from the splines in the animation tab. For some reason I can't get the axis X,Y,Z to flip properly to stop it from flying upside down during the playback through animation timeline. I have made the colours on model so you can see it flip when you scrub the timeline through the 10 seconds manually. What am I doing wrong please tell me how to correct the spline...? The reason for this small test is to generate a animation and render through Maxwell which I have done in this test and output a quicktime through after effects - works well but I now want to render through "Rebus Renderfarm" I tried and failed. I don't think package for render farm allows the Rebus server side to pick out each frame from the animation camera view I created from camera along path. There is option for render sequence from maxwell from rebus side but these are individual mxi views I think. Anyway I have sent support ticket to Rebus about this issue. Have you had any experience with Rebus? Can I save out individual mxi's from form Z that reflect the animation sequence from a Camera view along a spline - this is the question? Kind Regards Troy test anim.fmz.zip

    sweep

    Yes and no - tried the two path sweep. No luck. It distorts along the path. Thanks.

    sweep

    Thankyou Des, I did actually get it to work once using centroid but I think also that the tool for sweep does need an overhaul. It isn't as intuative as it could be. I can read your response but I'll have to go through the process myself to understand what you have written. But I'm glad you were able to help. Thankyou for this . Troy:)

    sweep

    Hi Form Z - I'm trying to sweep this C section though a spiral path on both sides but it twists as it goes around. I what the c section to sweep through path as positioned perpendicular to the ground plane. I have attached the file. Please if you could tell me the process to achieve this. I am trying to use as positioned but it ends up twisted at the bottom. Has it got something to do with the path? Kind Regards sweep.fmz.zip
