Re: Improve workstation responsiveness

GPUs accept some data and occupy all their cores till processing is finished, then they pick next workload... So probably its not possible to use 1 GPU for 2 tasks... It might be if you use smaller tile sizes, less samples (= gpus workload will be broken to smaller sizes), so GPU can search for next...

CO2 laser!

A while ago, I tried recreating a CO2 laser. The laser beam is created from 479 laser lights that are inside the CO2 volume. Yes 479 (+ 1 regular plane emitter, just for some more ambient light) are a lot of lights. I did this cuz I thought it would make the tube glow kinda like a real CO2 laser, wh...

Re: Computer for Luxcorerender

(systems ram is very slow compared to gpus internal memory)

Re: Sorceress

Looks awesome!!! It looks like a cinematic from a triple A game. Love how the red cape glows at it's end, lighting setup + orange/blue contrast, and the petals just add to the awesomeness. I disliked a bit, the hair, I would love some (slightly-just a little bit) windy hair sim(in reality petals fly...

Steps to reproduce with the uploaded .blend file: 1) (the cube is already selected, so be sure blender's window has focus)Press ctrl-c. Notes: O...

Re: Problems with undo

A wild guess(I haven't managed to crash anything with undo yet): since some suggest it has to do with the memory, you can try setting in user preferences>editing>"global undo as ticked", and also setting the memory limit to something bigger.

Re: How to use interior and exterior volumes?

Something that springs to my eye is this: The two objects seem to have the exact same size. In other words, the outer surface areas really lie in the same plane. Try to make the cube with the lower volume priority (!) smaller. This is an issue in other places in blender, too. E.g. when you sue the ...
