TFD and the new Take System in R17

Just wondering if any of the R17 beta testers have had a chance to use TFD with the new Take system. I understand R17 will require a new recompile of the plugin C++ code and newer IDE versions. More can be found here: https://developers.maxon.net/?p=2700 In other news, while not applicable to TFD, p...

Re: GTX 980: First Thoughts or Impressions?

An interesting comparison on the GTX 980 Ti vs. the Quadro K5200. Both have 8Gb and what makes this interesting is that it has some good detail into the 980 Ti specs: http://www.game-debate.com/gpu/index.php?gid=2490&gid2=2383&compare=geforce-gtx-980-ti-8gb-vs-quadro-k5200 I have been hearing some d...

Re: GTX 980: First Thoughts or Impressions?

Jascha, Thank you very much for taking the time to clearly explain the differences. Better to stay with more memory as I would imagine that my sims will definitely push the memory requirements (one 16 second sim hit 25 Gb cache sizes). Hopefully, the Maxwell architecture finds it way to the Titan pl...

Re: GTX 980: First Thoughts or Impressions?

Really confused by this because in previous posts, I thought that the higher compute capability, the better. With a 4Gb of memory and a 5.2 compute capability, I figured the GTX980 was the best of both worlds. So I ask you (and this is an important question as the price difference is $500), which ca...

GTX 980: First Thoughts or Impressions?

At 4Gb of memory and utilizing the Haswell architecture, the GTX 980 has an NVidia compute capability index of 5.2 (vs. 3.5 for the Kepler based cards or even the 6 Gb Titan). Also, the GTX 980 runs with less power than the 780Ti (the past go-to favorite) and therefore quieter and cooler (and presum...

Re: GeForce GTX TitanVs. Quadro Question

I am also surprised that the number of CUDA cores is not that important to TFD. Therefore, if I was to look for a recommended graphics card for TFD, what specs should I consider? As identified in the on-line manual, should I ONLY consider the amount of memory (> 4Gb) and Compute Capability for Nvidi...

TFD_C4D_v1-0_1317 no longer recognizes my Quadro 1000

Just installed the latest version of TFD for C4D (v1-0_1317) on my work laptop and noticed that it no longer recognizes my Quadro K1000M as an option for calculating the simulation. My work laptop runs C4D R14. When I re-installed TurbulenceFD_C4D_v1-0_1160 back into the plugin folder (swapping it w...

Re: Feature request

I saw that selection tags was already suggested, but if I may flesh out that request a bit more. Would it be possible to set a smoke and fire color gradient for each selection tag? Let's say you have a single mesh of a face (e.g. the eyes are not separately modeled) and want all but the eyes to emit...
