  1. I was playing with the profile window and attempted to move the lower end point over. It didn't move the point but it did put a kink in the profile there. Now I can't reset the profile to its original state and it's stuck like this. I've even tried uninstalling/installing and restarting Windows each time to no avail. I've also tried installing various versions. Any ideas to fix this problem? This is version 2022 47 [img][/img]
  2. https://arxiv.org/pdf/1610.02365.pdf Xanadu a Canadian quantum computing startup allows access to their Xanadu cloud service for free. https://www.xanadu.ai/products/pricing Xanadu Cloud offers you free access to photonic quantum computers, software, support and educational resources. The Free Tier gives you credits for running smaller workloads on Borealis and X-Series quantum hardware, and enables exploration for everyone. If you are looking to run larger jobs, we offer a Flexible Tier (pay-as-you-go) with our cloud partner Amazon Braket. For researchers and corporate teams looking for dedicated access packages, please reach out to learn more about Xanadu's Partner Tier. https://www.xanadu.ai Quantum computers based on photons may have some advantages over electron-based machines, including operating at room temperature and not temperatures colder than that of deep space. Now, say scientists at quantum computing startup Xanadu, add one more advantage to the photon side of the ledger. Their photonic quantum computer, they say, could scale up to rival or even beat the fastest classical supercomputers—at least at some tasks. Whereas conventional computers switch transistors either on or off to symbolize data as ones and zeroes, quantum computers use quantum bits or “qubits” that, because of the bizarre nature of quantum physics, can exist in a state known as superposition where they can act as both 1 and 0. This essentially lets each qubit perform multiple calculations at once. The more qubits are quantum-mechanically connected entangled together, the more calculations they can simultaneously perform. A quantum computer with enough qubits could in theory achieve a “quantum advantage” enabling it to grapple with problems no classical computer could ever solve. For instance, a quantum computer with 300 mutually-entangled qubits could theoretically perform more calculations in an instant than there are atoms in the visible universe. https://spectrum.ieee.org/race-to-hundreds-of-photonic-qubits-xanadu-scalable-photon
  3. Where do I install clang to ? Is there a special directory within 3D Coat's installation where it belongs? Thx.
  4. this is excellent and as a byproduct I finally get to download Clang.
  5. Metaballs would be very cool. Houdini has them as does Blender and I'm just doing a Chipp Walters tutorial on them and they are a very powerful tool for broad base modeling. Not sure about the programming end of things but from a mathematics POV they seem to be pretty simple. A typical function chosen for metaballs is the inverse-square law, that is the contribution to the thresholding function falls off in a bell as the distance from the centre of the metaball increases. Incidentally; The technique for rendering metaballs was invented by Jim Blinn in the early 1980s to model atom interactions for Carl Sagan's 1980 TV series Cosmos. You know Blinn as in Blinn shaders.
  6. I'm just coming back to 3D Coat after a half year hiatus and I started rummaging through my 3D coat files and found these saved samples from your previous generous advice. I'm very interested in anything you do but what I'd love to see more than anything is a comprehensive 3D Coat manual (as I've said before). I don't want to be a nag but you did say "any other suggestions". I would pay for a really comprehensive manual of this quality in PDF form. Frankly the current manual simply doesn't come close to cutting it.

  8. No more free upgrades to perpetual licences of ZBrush Pixologic‘s policy of providing indefinite free upgrades to users with perpetual licences of ZBrush has ended. Anyone who bought a licence of the digital sculpting software before 29 December 2021 will get free upgrades for one year following the purchase; anyone who bought after that date will get no free upgrades. The change follows Maxon‘s acquisition of the firm, which was also completed on 29 December 2021. Free upgrades to ZBrush ended on 29 December 2021 The change in ZBrush upgrade policy was widely expected, following the announcement last month that Maxon was to acquire the assets of Pixologic pending regulatory approval. http://www.cgchannel.com/2022/01/free-upgrades-to-perpetual-licences-of-zbrush-have-ended/
