  1. I decided not to get the crazy priced Titan and got a Gtx 680 4gig, which I’ll flash . . . Let’s see how it goes
  2. Is Mac version 64bit now ? It also says V18.0 instead of 19 on the installers link above
  3. Hi All, in the process of upgrading my computer with a new video card and processors, ram etc. Mac Pro 2009 - Flashed with 5,1 firmware so this will let me make it a pretty beasty machine - as always AM is on my mind when it comes to 3D work, and the question I have is should I get one of those Nvidia Titan 12gb cards ? or something like a GTX 680 - my current card is an ancient Quadro 1.8gb FX 4500 - the last time I tried to use AM on the Mac side it had so many issues that I had to load up boot camp and install win 7 and use it on that, it was OK - but I defiantly felt the video card was not being used fully, there was a lot of slowdown even on the windows side with this card. I have found that AM likes consumer grade video cards instead of the pro cards while working at Momentum - so this time round I am thinking of getting a beasty 'gaming' card - what are peoples thoughts on this ? It would be awesome if AM leveraged the processing power of cards - and yes we have discussed this man many time before - yes it will require a rewrite up of the code and so on - but in real life scenario - actual usage of the interface and screen drawing - refresh rate - responsiveness etc. Is it worth the money to get one of these titan x / xp things ?
  4. I like the idea of reintroducing the dongle, downloading the software on any computer, mac pc etc. and being able to run on any machine simply by plugging in the license dongle would be awesome.
  5. I think a lot of issues are memory based with AM on Mac and that its running as a virtual app in a shell for the mac version and runs out of memory quickly, this is what I deduced from a quick study of crash error reports . . .
  6. The Toadstool - dude do yourself a favour, install bootcamp on you mac and install AM on windows 7 + 64 bit and you wont have this problem, I know its a pain if your graphics and editing apps are mac based, I went through the same thing a few months ago with v18, have already tested out if it was due to video cards having tried both AMD / ATI + Nvidia on mac = some times if you toggle the OpenGL 3 / open gl setting in settings the textures and rotoscopes come back for a while then it goes back again, then sometimes your files get corrupted - be careful of that one as you don't want to lose your file you spent time on getting lost. Long story short if you want to get busy doing work and mac version is not playing nice - bootcamp ! There is some issue probably with system configurations and hardware / software / drivers etc. across different macs which s why only some of the mac users report issues, I remember using AM back in the days on the Aqua G3 machines and G4 machines and they were rock solid for production work - https://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47610&hl= https://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=45848&hl= https://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=48106&hl= https://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47916&hl= https://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=47857&hl= https://www.hash.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=48175&hl=
  7. These might be useful soon he he he https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/xeon-phi/xeon-phi-processors.html
  8. Hey Martin, I just watched “ The Founder “ with Michael Keaton - awesome moofee and incidentally I was researching on render farms when I decided to check in here it was awesome meeting you, I’m still very optimistic about AM, its good you moved on, I always like the saying, success is the best form of payback and the software is maturing fine with age, come on in dip your feet in again ! Great to have you back on the boards.
  9. Thanks Robcat ! I was playing with Ik and it works but it needs to be reversed some how - I like the idea of the pose slider too let me have another go with the above setups included into the rig !
  10. Hi people , am trying to rig up a RC car steering but am getting no joy - the first bit is easy - but I need to do the other half - so far have tried constrain to / roll / dynamic but havent got it working The selected bone is the driver / main - then there is a bone on the tie rod to the pinion, which goes to the swing arm to another pinion and one bone for the hub Now when I move the main bone which is from the servo steering in a RC car the other bones should work in chain - but I dont know how to set the constraints - can anyone give me some pointers please , would be much appreciated , I'll continue to tinker in the mean time
  11. Hi all, FYI finally got some time to get back onto setting up AM after going through a learning curve to install Windows 7 on the old Mac Pro 2008 3,1 - finally did this, installed and new subscription and am happy to report, AM now works Flawlessly ! The old mac with a quadro fx 4800 card is no slouch and makes a damn good PC with the dual xeon processors and heaps of ram, now I am super happy and can get on with work, and possibly even get a new mac and have a great PC to run AM on it stable which happens to also be a mac he he, I have tested both ATI and Nvidia cards and they both work fine with no texture or rotoscope glitches at all. Exxxceellleent !
  12. Am 18p on Win 7 running on Mac Pro 3,1 through bootcamp with Nvidia Quadro FX4800 working perfect wit rotoscope and texture rendering
  13. Am 18p on Win 7 running on Mac Pro 3,1 through bootcamp with Nvidia Quadro FX4800 working perfect wit rotoscope and texture rendering
  14. Am 18p on Win 7 running on Mac Pro 3,1 through bootcamp with Nvidia Quadro FX4800 working perfect wit rotoscope and texture rendering
  15. Ok - installed Windows 7 via bootcamp on Macpro 3,1 2008 installed AM 18p - working flawlessly with Nvidia FX4800
