    Cobrien,
    I have tested this before. It works just fine. Works fine with .jpg file format.

    allanjl reacted to ariel in V 9.0.5.3 build A26A   
    Hi there,
    I have a win 10 pro 64 bit machine, with 64 gigs of ram, an NVidia Quadro rtx 4000, and an intel core i7-7800X,  and I am using v9.0.5.3 Build A26A now, (just because people said not to upgrade yet..)
    The problem is that i am experiencing a lot of Lag and delay in my workflow. the whole interface and interaction with the software is slower than what used to be in V8/ has anyone experiencing this?
    it applies to all aspects, but mainly to picking objects, switching between tools, scroll zooming with mouse etc... and basically this means 80% of the workflow is effected by that lag.
    the delay is huge (about quarter of a second to switch between tools for example, or once you've picked your "Move" tool, then it takes about a quarter of a second to show on the tool options palette if it is Self or a Copy... ) and it is constant there... so it is really annoying to the point I'm thinking of switching back to the last v8.
    any insight on that ?
    Thanks

    allanjl reacted to santa in Mac OS BigSUR With Issues, Render Zone Not Working   
    @Justin Montoya, that's why I'm a "PC guy". I started off on a Mac, but that only lasted a year or so. I love the ability to freely tinker with my hardware.
    My current computer runs twin Xeons (72 cores), coupled with 128GB of ECC RAM, and three graphic cards (one Quadro and two Teslas) for GPU rendering! Vroooom.....
    It's big, it's heavy, it ain't pretty, but It leaves just about any Mac in the dust where it matters! Oh, and I didn't have to mortgage the house for it.

    I seem to have issues deleting geometry with this version. Selecting an object and hitting de delete key, doesn't seem to work.
    More alarming, and definitely needing a fix: 99% of my 2D plans saved as a layer inside my model have disappeared. Yes, disappeared! PLEASE FIX THIS.
    I reverted to the previous version. Cannot work without my 2D cad plan layers.
    Windows 10.

    allanjl got a reaction from Justin Montoya in Importing 3rd party models   
    Justin. I couldn't agree more. Somethings really need to be improved to make the frustration out of working with formZ. For instance, when you hare working on a file that have some geometry in it. Say 200 mb. Invoking commands such as the move command (I use this thousands of times in a day), the program responds excruciatingly slow. My shortcut for move is "m". I select the object, hit m, and about 2-3 seconds later the move command responds. This seems to occur after orbiting. This is unacceptably slow. It should respond as quickly as clicking on the icon!

    Yes! I thought maybe it was just my video card. But I see it happens to others. 
    Tech, you have to put yourself in our shoes. I have attended large meetings with our client and consultants, they show their models on the big screen, then we go over ours. When things like this show up, it makes everyone involved looked bad.

    allanjl got a reaction from ¢hris £und in Learning Form Z 9   
    I remember seeing some of those videos and they excellent. I think for me, the biggest difference from 6.7.3 to 9 is the fact that in v.9 FormZ is really meant to be worked on in shaded mode. It's far more graphically oriented than 6.7.3.
    Watch the videos from Evan Troxel. They will be very helpful.

    That sounds really good. It's very encouraging.  I will eventually buy Maxwell for my own business. Meanwhile, by full time employer doesn't have the need for it.

    allanjl got a reaction from andrew in Will a solid state drive speed up saving large files?   
    Actually the reason why it takes a while prior to the progress bar is because it's preparing to save. Putting everything together prior to saving. The bigger the file, the worse it is. Also, I've noticed that if the file has been worked on for many days, the slower it is to save. If you actually copied everything to a fresh empty file, the first few times it saves it will be leaps and bounds faster.

    allanjl got a reaction from graham_g in FormZ 9.0.4.2   
    Is anyone else experiencing frequent crashes in full shaded mode, especially when turning clipping planes on and off? Compared to the 9.0.4.1, the newest release seems unstable in shaded mode to me. I transferred to a different workstation, for instance, and some textures where disconnected, if I tried to go to shaded mode (not full shaded) it would immediately crash! Oops, forgot to mention I switched to a 4k monitor, so I'm running 9.0,4.2 in 4k. Maybe a video card issue?

    Very nice Andrew. I suppose the image you posted is also done in the way they've asked you. Very well lit, no strong shadows. Real estate purposes. 
    Below is my design for a custom home. Thankfully, I'm not required to light up the building the same way. I like to render with strong shadows to show the three dimensional quality of the design, and the end user is fine with it.

    allanjl reacted to Justin Montoya in Decal cannot work in vray render   
    I believe the Decal tool is only used for RenderZone rendering.  All the other rendering engines cannot use that style of mapping, so you will need to use the normal texture mapping method to map textures onto geometry.
     
    In my opinion, the Decal tool has very limited use and should be abandoned.
