  1. Hold down Shift+Control and this will bring up the install to install/repair it. Holding down just Control and launching the program will bring up a prompt so you can reset aspects to the program.I I have Open CL off in my preferences when running it on my i5 laptop with Intel HD graphic display and it runs fine.
  2. That is really sad news. Big loss, loved his animations and had a great style. My condolences to his family.
  3. That's a good deal on the licensing. Not sure if there is any path from AM to FBX, there might be some 3rd party utilities you may have to hop through. I stopped way back when they changed over to Maya for content creation.
  4. I had done animations a very long time ago for the Unreal engine. I used 3ds Max at the time and there was a plug-in to do just that. Not sure if you can import direct x files into the Unreal engine or not but you can look into Garagegames Torque engine. It is a little dated but last I checked it accepted direct x files. The Unreal engine isn't all that tough to work in but I found it unstable. Way back I used to make 3d models of my map bases in a poly modeler preferably one that supported quads, exported an obj file and used that geometry to subtract my map from the world. I believ
  5. Does not work on my laptop at all, can only access the options in the calendar date drop down. Used to be able to do that prior to the last updates. I think that Windows programmers are dumbing down the systems so much they become cumbersome to get anything done. Sad day when the OS get's in the way of production. I would go back to Mac if their OS updates didn't nerf every program I purchase on such a consistent basis. Too bad Unix and Linux are so limted when it comes to programs written for them and driver support on harware is pretty poor.
  6. My favorite is Airplane Mode. What would we do without that option on a desktop? Also love the fact you can no longer search custom date ranges and to access basic date range you have to type in *.* in the search field to bring up the search options. Lastly my other favorite new feature is you can no longer selectively chose what gets updates so if you have an older video card that runs like @$$ with latest drivers it's tough luck. Yes that is on Win 10 Pro.
  7. I still have the 15 cd and it works ok on my Win10 laptop BUT it is not as stable as 19. Having both I would recommend the sub on 19 as it has better stability, much faster rendering and has some new features.
  8. I actually had a congo african gray (all black beak) and a timna african gray (tan upper beak). Congo had a mean streak, the timna was about the friendliest bird. not that it even matters but just wanted to randomly blurt that out. Most don't know there are different types. Cute story the timna picked up the door knock sound perfectly and the congo would hollar out Hello?!. Drove us crazy.
  9. I used to use Network Solutions but they sold out and are now one of the worst. Trouble is GoDaddy wants to drive customers to use their web based tools and those are pretty limited unless your making really simple sites and stick to their templates. Anything beyond that they want to sell development services. I just use them for email and have it for unlimited data which seems to have a limit as it hangs after 500 messages or so. Let me know who you find if you find a better host.
  10. I can't tell you how many times I yelled at them for screwing up my site and email. Those code kiddies need to stay off social media and do their jobs. Went to renew my domain and they expired my pw and didn't tell me. Hopefully I can just reset it without getting on the phone with those brats. Sadly not many good choices for hosting out there. I feel your pain!
  11. I use an i5 intel laptop here with built in video and the only issue I have is if I use any desktop scaling as it will make moving pallets look offset until you let go. The OpenGL on them is pretty good now and only drawback seems to be the shared memory.
  12. Sounds good but think I just don't have the enthusiasm to dive into this at this time. May change my mind and will let you guys know. Thanks for the invite though.
  13. Background you can use an image. I like the model you have so far. Looks great.
  14. Too bad Adobe can't be broken up for monopolizing amongst other nasty things they do. State of CA already sued them and won on some other issues. I really dislike the company for the poor security they had on my info that caused me to get endless spam mail and phone calls for over 2 years along with needing to change my business debit card. Other thing that bothers me is how they do data mining and the big security hole they have with typekit.net. This is where sites that use Typekit fonts retrieve the fonts used but the scary part is where Adobe can send and receive data from the viewer
