Hi,I've just reactivated my old 32-bit machineafter a clean reinstall of everything.Just to run test-renders as i did before -It was possible to run renders with hdris, even with slightly complex…Continue

Displacement map + fillet

Does anybody have the same issue; if i try to render a filleted solid i get black lines on the edges close to the camera if a displacement map is used.…Continue

2 physical Processors or only one with multiple cores?
3 Replies

Can somebody give me a hint-what is better / faster in rendering speed:2 physical processors or, lets say one xeon with 8 cores?Thanks in advance,ThorstenContinue

Hello to you all!

I wanna thank all of the people, who had voted for 'Shine a Light'.It was my very first try here and it took my machine to the limit- only 32 bit with one i5 - even with 3 GB memory switch enabled,…Continue

"You can experiment with this setting if you want- sometimes 99% works  fine and slightly improves performance.  Or you can leave it alone-- these heat shutdowns are not really very good for a computer."

"Abracadabra; adjusting 'Maximum Processor State' (in 'Processor Power Management') -so it does not exceed 95% of its capabilities seems to be doing the trick - as Roy pointed out. Thanks! Will try new thermal compound anyway -…"

George Ioannidis replied to Thorsten Hedrich's discussion Computer restarts
"Doesn't that mean that turning your CPU 95% down it will run only at 5% of its full horsepower? Does it mean that the rendering will then run 20X longer than of full CPU throttle? Or did you mean to set the CPU usage to 95%? Are those 5% enough…"

"Turn CPU max down-- usually something like 95% will take care of it."

"Don't be so sure about power supply. My son's game rig started shutdowns suddenly. We changed even the mo-bo without any success. Shutdowns continued. Until I did p.s. swap (from my machine to his). Guess what happened? :) Grüße…"

"It is wise to check the way CPU cooler sits on CPU. You have to unmount the cooler's radiator with fan from CPU and check the condition of thermal compound between the heatsink and the CPU's metal cover. First clean off any of the old…"

"Update: Measured CPU temperature with cpuid-hwmonitor while rendering a simple scene On an old machine: temperature stays around 25 C°, even while rendering On the 'problem pc': temperature rises from 35 C° up to 55C° - so this…"

"Sad to say and thank you all, but none of the efforts been made to figure out what reason causes the shutdowns succeeded. Seems to be that i can't use this computer with next any longer :("

"in 'Processor Power Management' have set 'Maximum processor state' to 100%; 'System cooling policy' is set to 'active'. - everything with no avail. Pushed video card out, uninstalled driver. Updated the…"

Roy Hirshkowitz replied to Thorsten Hedrich's discussion Computer restarts
"An automatic computer restart crash is usually hardware, typically heat related or video card.   For the heat problem some systems allow you to set CPU maximum usage in the Control Panel settings. If it exists, it's typically under the…"

"Cooler works; pushed it in bios 3 steps further. Sounds horrible noisy now - but, no luck, next crashes like before, machine restarts. Tested the whole thing on another machine - no problems there. Thanks for your efforts :)"

"Hi Chris, The modelling, lighting and rendering are very good on these three images. However, I feel they are let down slightly by the "Photoshopped" plants, cars and people. I think it's mainly to do with the shadow direction and…"

"Thank you Roy. The more physical based effects nXt has, the more realistic pictures it will compute. All of those need a lot of computing power under (or on top of) our desks though. Are you doing any move to engage GPUs on rendering process in nXt?…"
