Re: Network Rendering, Stop Slaves on Stop

Also another issue that I assume is related: When I set a Halt SPP the master stops when it achieves this, but network slaves keep working, forever. I assume they keep uploading frames, as I set a Halt SPP of 6,000 but ended up getting over 17,000... I can confirm that the caterpillar test scene beh...

Network Rendering, Stop Slaves on Stop

Hi, Setting up the render farm here at Massey Wellington Spatial Design is going well, everything is working nicely, apart from the GPU acceleration device from Master issue here: http://www.indigorenderer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=12166 and the permissions request here: http://www.indigorendere...

Re: Network Slave Not Utilizing CUDA?

Yes I've the same issue. Master (windows) is running GPU acceleration with CUDA. Slaves (mac) have OpenCL. In network slave report window it says that slave is running GPU acceleration with CUDA (device the same as Masters GPU device) Be sweet to fix this (check for available GPU devices, if the Mas...

Section Planes and "realistic" shadows

Hello, Firstly, awesome you added the section planes feature, it makes life so much easier, thank you. Firstly (and this may be more of a Skindigo request), If a section plane is active in the modelling program, I think it should be enabled in indigo, what you see should be what you get. Currently y...

Re: Large Resolution Windows Lockup

Yes, apparently it is still possible.

I haven't tested with a standard user account..

There is that function which coders must implement to check resources: GlobalMemoryStatusEx
MacOS performs a similar test automatically.

or so I have been told.

Anyway, hope that helps.

Large Resolution Windows Lockup

Hello,

If I try a huge resolution render, Indigo uses all the available memory resources, locking up Windows.

Maybe this function call can work: GlobalMemoryStatusEx

Hope that helps.

Removing all Skindigo Data

Hi, While working on a model with Sketchup/Skindigo, often I change the skindigo resolution to half or double the screen size to test out different settings. But if I take the model to a machine without skindigo, it still shows the black frame (with no way of changing it?). How can I remove this, an...

Re: Why my renderer art does not look like real? Please Help

I agree with fused, looking pretty good so far. If you want realism, you need realistic detailing, proportion, lighting and materiality. as fused says, make sure the scale is correct. your desk looks chunky. Use realistic lighting emmiters (make lamps and bulbs). Make sure the materials are spot on ...

Maybe I'm retarded, but why does samples/seconds matter so much? (shouldn't the end quality after x time be the important thing?)

Re: SkIndigo 3.0.10

[quote="Headroom"... However, in my current project it started very high but then dropped to a number of around 90k samples/second, while in non-GPU-Path-Tracing it was over 300k. That was a bit of a surprise![/quote] Testing using my old project with a 10min timelimit, it came out 3x more spp. Just...

Re: SkIndigo 3.0.10

Ok, cool, thanks.

Edit: It appears to stay on from when I previously turned GPU accel on.
