3.2.1.4 too slow to generate animation frames

Recommended Posts

Hi Pylon,

 

I installed the 3.2.1.4 upgrade and try to generate 300 frames with 8.5.4 and the latest plug-in (Mac Pro 4,1 with 12 Gb RAM and OSX 10.10.5).

With the latest early build formZ took few minutes, now with 3.2.1.4 plug-in took 1 hour and 40 minutes (with base animation disable).

 

I installed the 3.2.1.4 plug-in because early build worked great but with same 300 animation frames some random frames (9 of 300) had mxs trees scatter moved different for the rest of frames.

 

I tryed to generate manuallt only the problematic frames but the scatter mxs are moved again. (i don't to disabled base animation with the early build).

 

I don't know if with the 3.2.1.4 plug-in and base animation disabled the generation frames long time is aspected;

 

The project is too big to send you but if the animation will the same frames problem i consider to send you formZ project with all textures and dipendencies.

 

Andrea.

Hi Andrea,

 

Unless you have a very specific reason for doing so, always leave "Base MXS for Static Entities" enabled. It will result in very fast output of animation frames. Disabling "Base MXS for Static Entities" is expected to take a long time to export each frame (and the MXS frames will be very large.)

 

Scatter objects should work fine with "Base MXS for Static Entities" enabled. Can you let us know why you turned it off? Please try again with this option enabled, and let us know if that works.

 

I'm not sure why Studio wouldn't open on your computer (it opens here). 3.2.1.5 early build should work fine with the 3.2.1.4 formZ Plugin (however, I have not tried that).

Hi Pylon,

 

I installed the 3.2.1.4 plug-in because early build worked great but with same 300 animation frames some random frames (9 of 300) had mxs trees scatter moved different for the rest of frames; I've never seen before this problem but with 3.2.1.4 this problem is gone (i don't know if is the last maxwell release or the base animation disabled ).

 

After a restart Studio work well here too.

We are unable to diagnose the source of the problem without your formZ project; feel free to send it if you'd like and we will have a look.

Hi Pylon,

 

I tried to reproduce the mxs scatter problem but with 3.2.1.4 and "Base MXS for Static Entities" enabled the problem is gone.
