TR renders distribute the whole cache

Hi - not sure if this is a bug, or just the way it works. It seems whenever I use TeamRender to render a TFD project, the app copies the entire cache to local disk before sending it out. So with a 500Gb cache, it takes all the spare HD space. This means I can't network-render any TFD project with a ...

Re: 1417 and 1419 causing UI errors in C4D R17/R18

Thanks Paul, reported. Do you mean you're experiencing the error, or that your drivers were out of date? It's such a crippling problem I can't see that it wouldn't be more widely known if it wasn't just me, so maybe it's something specific to my installation.

Cheers - Chris

1417 and 1419 causing UI errors in C4D R17/R18

Hi - I've been having quite a few weird UI issues in Cinema recently, and after the usual plugin shuffle, it seems TFD is the cause. The problem is that modifiers, and navigation keys like 1,2,3, and context-sensitive commands, are triggering error messages, and being ignored by the app. Commands li...

Feature request - set VRAM ceiling

Hi - hope this is possible. When running a simulation, if the workspace goes over the video card size then the machine will occasionally drop to using the CPU, but more often will just hard-crash, requiring a restart. What I'd like is the ability to override the plugin's settings and explicitly say,...

Re: Custom TFD PC advice needed

Thanks for the parts-list David, very useful to see what's needed. Probably doing something similar soon, as a workstation rather than a dedicated sims machine, so would be interested to see how this develops.

Cheers - Chris

Concert visuals

Some bits I made for some on-stage concert visuals; fire is suddenly very popular ;-) TurbulenceFD is a really great plugin, thanks for making this possible!

R16.050, TFD and team render

Anyone manage to get Team Render to handle TFD jobs since 16.050 came out? It used to work fine - the .bcf files used to be sent out to each client per frame - but since 16.050 the clients either render blank frames (no .bcf file) or never start. I've tried most TR options - disabling peer-peer, bon...

Re: GTX 680 not recognized in TFD on Yosemite

...MacPro4,1 will work as well, i tried it too ;) Thanks Jonas - that's really good to know. I'm pretty new to TFD but it's an addictive beast, and the leap from CPU->GPU is dramatic. Not quite ready for the thunderbolt route - I'm VRay mostly so CPU is king, and the outlay wouldn't be worth it - b...

Re: GTX 680 not recognized in TFD on Yosemite

Great info, thanks for that. I'm working with a 750M on the MacBookPro - 2Gb - and it's fast enough for what I'm doing, but I'm hitting the VRAM limit quite often. There's an old MacPro 4,1 sitting around here doing not much, I thought I might be able to get a mid-level card and put it to work ;-) I...

Great, thanks Jonas! How do they compare, if you don't mind me asking?
