Decals increase file size

If I add a decal to an object, the size of the file sent to the renderfarm increases massively, sometimes to the point where it exceeds the 32Gb RAM the render nodes have.However, it hardly has an…Continue

Render farm OS

We've just added a couple of powerful servers onto our render farm, but they are only running steadily at 40% capacity.Both machines are running on Windows 2012 Server. Would this make any difference?They both have quad 10 core processors and all seem to be running.In comparison, the dedicated render farm bounces up and down between 50% and 80% as it runs through a render (running on Windows 7 Pro).See More

"Either that or you can save the image as an nXt file and then export a materials mask. That way, everything assigned your special material can be selected in one go."

Peter Milner replied to Sampdoria's discussion Disabling Shadows
"I think Photoshop is the only way for this. However, if you tag the object as alpha channel, it will make selecting it in Pshop easier."

Could you pull out the furniture in, "Fulcrum CE 05" save the file and share? I like to see how you treat your lights?

Yes.  Use WalkAbout and select the Two-Point Perspective Projection.

Hi Roy....do u mean that nxt 2 point projection option can solve my problem is it? Because autocad camera point at the top, normally the vertical line look not straight as the photo shown.

nXt has a two-point projection option in WalkAbout.

hi peter milner,I just have a look of your photo. I need your advise for the photo camera point. As I know Autocad only have 2 point instead of 3 point. But I saw your photo vertical line is straight. How to do it?

"Try switching the View to something like Large Icons: I've also had people say they've had to reboot before the change took effect. Try that."
