Re: xpTrail Tag Wiped

Hey Mario,

Had posted and submitted a bug report to Cycles4D & XP devs - and it looks like it's an XP issue and should be fixed in the next update,,,

Cheers

Re: Possible Bug: switching to top view while realtime preview is on

This is constantly happening for me, have submitted a bug report.

Happens on a complex scene, hit F2 to switch viewport, or switch layout (Animate > Startup etc) crashes C4D - this is infuriating!

Presume this isn't being implemented anytime soon? Getting vertex colors to drive stuff exported from Houdini this way would be really great...

Re: Displacement on part of a mesh

If you want the displacement 0 where you've got the selection, plug in the 'fac' to a RGB mix node with the noise as one colour and RGB 128 128 128 as the other input - have attached

Re: Rendering VDB Volumes from Houdini

Managed to get xplosiafx to read a VDB volume from Houdini, works and renders however it is extremely buggy - you dont' know if what you load gets read everytime. You have to delete and create a new cache everytime, point density node works though I guess... Shame as they look really good when it do...

Rendering VDB Volumes from Houdini

Is this possible? I've tried using an explosiafx object and using a cache object to load it but doesn't seem to be working

Thanks

xpTrail Tag Wiped

Guess this is both XP & Cycles related....

Working on a project yesterday that rendered coloured splines generated by XP xpTrail fine.

Open project today and looks like the colour value in the trail tag has been wiped, as the trails render black.

Anyone else had this?

Re: IPR constantly refreshing

!! issue is back, now seems like the culprit in my scene is a xpGenerator - turn it on, constant refresh, off - back to normal....

Re: New Cycles build

Great, thought that was the case, thank you for the clarification! A quick scan over the docs and i can't see anything signalling the change, this might freak out anyone who isn't used to Linear workflows in their compositing - something everyone should know for sure but it's always a pain to know w...

New Cycles build - Linear Output?

Have noticed the rendered image looks different to the IRP - is this a colourspace thing? Image looks like it's linear...

Upgraded between doing renders of the same sceme and there's definitely a difference.

Otherwise great job on the update, node editor is much better! :)

IPR constantly refreshing

Having a weird issue where the IPR will constantly refresh when the timeline isn't playing/everything has stopped, anyone else had this?
