    I live in Karlsruhe, Germany and studied Media Engineering at the UAS in Offenburg. Today I am working for a middle-size fullservice media-agency in the web, animation and video-department.

    I like to do all kinds of artwork and creative things in general. I write, paint, make music and I like to animate and model (in A:M and with physical materials). But I although like to develope in PHP, JavaScript, CSS, HTML and sometimes in Java and ActionScript.

    I am using A:M since version 8.0(2000), and keept it up to date each year. So I am now using A:M 18. As you can see I am quite happy with A:M.

  1. In short... yes. Stay with the Windows version ;). Welcome back to the show and sounds like a lot of fun... Resin 3d printers are a little too expensive for me till now (I love them so) but I'd really like to hear more about your work with them :). Best regards *Fuchur*

    Good clear plastic material?

    Just a small try... maybe of use. Best regards *Fuchur* PS: Keep in mind: A material without a surrounding is always pretty boring. Give it something to work with like lights, shadows, reflecting objects, etc. cap.prj

    About updates!

    Updates in A:M are always the whole installer again. So yes, it will contain the previous changes too. (at least if they are still valid in that version) Best regards *Fuchur*

    Needing some help

    Sounds like a permission problem to me. I am not a Mac guy, but I know that there are some kind of permission settings for programs, right? I can only set you on that track and can't really tell you how to do it, but maybe it already helps? Otherwise someone else here is surely going to know how to do it. Best regards *Fuchur*

    Nvidia Titan 12gb Cards ? Any good ?

    That is very strange too... in general you are able to use AMD drivers directly or you can stick to the mainboard once (which I never did... they are always old and I am using always the AMD once and only the bios from the MB manufacturer)... I did not try Gigabyte till now... neighter for Mainboard nor for GPU... Asrock, Asus and MSI have been tested by me (concerning Mainboards) and Sapphire, Asus, MSI and Powercolor for GPUs... maybe Gigabyte is the problem here or you are just unlucky with your MB or another component here... Is this a refurbished system or a new one? Sounds very odd to me all together... Anyway: Hope you can fiddle that one out... sounds awful to me... I never even heard of anything that bad till now. Best regards *Fuchur*

    Nvidia Titan 12gb Cards ? Any good ?

    I'd say you are extremly unlucky with yours... that is totally unnormal. I never killed any of my GPUs ever (did you overclock them a lot or something? I never ever had any card having any kind of bigger trouble and not one even close to "burning" even when overclocking them moderately. And again: I am using AMD hardware very often on MANY different machines, using different versions of Athlon64, Phenom II and Ryzens and AMD APUs for years and years now. AMD is NOT junk or anything in that direction. That statement I totally disagree and am strongly against that anybody says that with one bad system which can happen to anybody with any manufacturer. Whatever problem you've got there needs to be a very rare thing and is not common. I am more like an ASUS guy and I am rarely using Gigabyte in any of my builds, but it would surprise me a whole lot if it would be a common thing for Gigabyte. There is just too less in the non-fan-boy-media about that kind stuff happening to be common. And since I am running most of my machines for years and years with some of them running 24/7 or at least close to that, I can say that that is not a common thing. About 60 pc builds with mostly AMD hardware over the years where close to unproblematic with one smaller exception where I had to get rid of RAM, which was not working as it should with a MB way back in the year 2015. I am running currently about 20 computers with AMD hardware too as I said before and they are doing fine right at these days. Again: What you are experiencing there is very unlucky but this is not normal behaviour and NOT a general problem and can happen to you with Intel, AMD or Nvidia hardware too if you are just unlucky. My guess is: You are having some kind of secondary problem like a defect powersupply (overpowering the PCI-E connectors or something like that or a problem with this one mainboard which is giving a wrong output of some kind and killing your otherwise fine hardware. Anyway concerning that "you must have been lucky"-stuff: Since I have had that many systems running with AMD hardware, I would have been very, very lucky if it really would be a general problem. That is highly unlikely... that unlikely that I would need to start playing lottery tommorrow if I would have been lucky... (and no, I won't throw my money out of the window like that ) I'd say get an Intel + Nvidia setup next and I am pretty sure that you will be "lucky" that time and do not get a problem with them, but that does not proove anything against AMD. It just says that you are not having bad luck with a 1 in a million chance again of getting a bad system / build... Best regards *Fuchur*

    Nvidia Titan 12gb Cards ? Any good ?

    Update your bios on your AMD machine... Since AMDs platform is much newer, it had to grow much more than the very old intel core platform. But with a recent bios it should be really no difference. I have AMD running here at work (about 20 systems) and at home and they are great. But had to update the bios for two of them to really make them good. Otherwise there were problems with some RAM sticks. Concerning GPU: That is up to you. I have a rx570 here and am happy with it in an ryzen 1700 system on a b350 mainboard with a overclock to ram and cpu running very stable. But if you have a different experience that is possible. Concerning CPU: For single core usage intel is still a little faster(not really noticeable in most real world cases), for rendering with multicores AMD kills intel at the moment. And of cause u can use an AMD or Nvidia GPU with an Intel or AMD system. Should not make a bigger difference. Best regards *Fuchur*

    Nvidia Titan 12gb Cards ? Any good ?

    As Roger said: A good GPU for gaming will do the same and cost A LOT less. Just get a AMD R570 or a Nvidia 1060/1070 and you are very good to go. Anything above that kind of GPUs won't help you in A:M. If you use different software it is a different story, but no need to spend that kind of money if you ask me... (not even for a professional if you have not a very specific usecase) In general I recommend a fast CPU (something like a Intel i7 8700/8800k or a AMD Ryzen 2700(x)) and a mid-range GPU and you are fine to go. (if you are using Netrender the R2700(x) will do more for you, otherwise the i7 8800k will do better for you, but it really does not make a major difference all taken into account) Best regards *Fuchur*

    I think with v16 there have been a lot of changes which might help you there... (and like that v19 is of cause better too). At least 3dcoat works pretty nicely with the OBJ-/directx-export from A:M. Best regards *Fuchur*
  15. Fuchur


    Sure, I am still around . That is quite an old version and I am no longer using that one... v19 is it for me, but if I would have to guess: Can you update your graphic card driver? And you might want to change the 3d driver in the settings: Go To "Tools > Options > Global > Real-time Driver". Change that to something else (for instance switch from OpenGL to OpenGL 3 or something like that) Best regards *Fuchur*
