  1. Here's a nice system: https://pcpartpicker.com/blog/154/fractal-design-meshify-c-mini-build

    [Solved] Out of Memory Error + Crash

    QUESTION Is this an optimal system for 3dc, and will it increase 3dc ability to handle 1g files? this is opposed to my current system which is a 4-core i7-4790 processor with 32 DDR3 (as opposed to DDR4) and of course an older ASUS motherboard... already have the GTX-GeForce 1080ti Graphics Card. I can't help wondering why 3dc has limits on the file size it can handle, and why a snippet of code or tweak isn't available to increase the virtual memory for 3dc to handle 1g files... IS THIS OPTIMAL FOR 3DC to handle 1g files, or will the limit in 3dc still make it crash? 1 USD = 6.3 RMB (China) CPU AMD RYZEN Threadripper 1950X 16-Core / 32 Threads 3.4 GHz Socket sTR4 8000 RMB MOTHERBOARD ASUS ROG ZENITH EXTREME sTR4 AMD X399 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Extended ATX AMD Motherboard uses DDR4 2000 RMB MEMORY G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2979 RMB COOLER Enermax Liqtech TR4 360 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler, Support 500W+TDP 859 RMB POWER CORSAIR HXi Series HX1000i 1000W 80 PLUS PLATINUM Haswell 1279 RMB BOX 300 RMB

    [Solved] Out of Memory Error + Crash

    NOTE A 1gb+ TIFF file converted to TGA & compressed is abouit 250,000kb, and works fine, no need to increase the size of the TGA to 1gb...

    Carlosan, 256,000kb file 20,480px x 20,480px 16bit compressed RGB @ 300 DPI works! Problem solved! Thank you!

    [Solved] Out of Memory Error + Crash

    Thank you! CLARIFICATION I'm importing the large image file into 3dc Smart Material Editor, rather than exporting out from 3dc. CAVEAT This large 1g is perfectly happy in BLENDER, ADOBE CS4 and several other software programs. What's the issue in 3dc, is there a BUG, if so, is it possible to write permission to increase 3dc's ability to handle large files. What, exactly, makes 3dc unstable? Why the file size limit in 3dc? SOLUTION If I cobble together the following hardware configuration, which would be: (4x8)32DDR4 memory, AMD 1950 ThreadRipper 16core, a cooler, 1000w power supply, several 1tb HDrives & my current GTX Geforce 1080ti - and a blazing fast Motherboard, would that SOLVE the 3dc crash problem?

None what? No crash? "lzw file size = 25.7 MB" Crashes, yes or no? "TGA is a 'good' substitute?" Means what? Doesn't crash? What 'exporting'? I'm IMPORTING into 3dc. Typo error? You meant importing? 64,000 QUESTION: Is the new hardware a waste of $$$? It won't fix 3dc inability to handle these large files, yes or no? Thank you
  6. EDIT: Misprint, its 20,480px x 20,480px TIFF RGB @ 300 DPI. Not 20,480kb !!! Sheesh! I make print designs for sublimation fabric printing and use large files - however, 3dCoat is unique in that it presents a limit on the file size I can load into the Smart Materials Editor - beginning with the COLOR texture map - if it is TOO large. Out of Memory with Win7 Prof 64byte, 32DDR3, GTX GeForce 1080ti, 500gb Seagate, loading any image file larger than 10,240px x 10,240px TIFF RGB @ 300 DPI. See illustrated specs & interface. Everything is updated and other than opening large files (1g sized files) everything is smooth, below the above mentioned file size. These files open in Blender and other programs (I.e., Adobe CS4 Fireworks & PhotoShop etc!) without a hitch! Just not 3dCoat! SUGGESTION: Why not have a setting in USER PREFERENCES to adjust the virtual memory allocation? NOTE: Here's a 50 USD tip for designers~! Happy to announce no import duty on clothing imported into the USA as long as its registered TradeMark in China! Phew! China just cut the trademark fees 50%! It's weekend, so not pressed (I'm in China, so holidays for a few days - )... got a few days off! Cheers & thank you!

    Are CMYK PBR possible?

    Hey thanks! Also some good links here: https://sourceforge.net/directory/os%3Awindows/?q=rgb+to+cmyk&sort=popular

    Are CMYK PBR possible?

    Is it possible to work in CMYK instead of RGB in 3dCoat? I need to print the images in CMYK and don't wish to deal with transforming RGB to CMYK, nor the art of CALIBRATION to achieve the CYMK.

    NODES: Replace 'Mapping' with 'XYZ Sliders'

    NODES: Replace 'Mapping' with 'XYZ Sliders'

    Iyad, You're a genius, very nice work! Instead of having one MAPPING Node which contains the Vector Slide commands ALL-IN-ONE, I'd prefer to have (3) texture VECTOR-SLIDER NODES, insomuch, what I'm after a proprietary NODE SLIDER for each of the following actions: DOLLY PAN ROTATE You designed & built FOUR separate proprietary VECTOR SLIDER nodes for the above functions? Something like this (See Attachment) Thank you - a miracle!

    NODES: Replace 'Mapping' with 'XYZ Sliders'

    Hi Haunted, Thanks for the tip! Actually, being behind the GREAT CHINESE FIREWALL makes it difficult to get onto Stack, or anywhere outside the Great Wall... however, after awhile I managed to get a post on the group you suggested, thanks again. Cheers, Ced

    NODES: Replace 'Mapping' with 'XYZ Sliders'

    I'm in Mainland China - the Firewall here blocks the Java so I can't log into Stack Exchange... to post - perhaps someone else could see if there's a possibility to locate a vector slider - or the code? ERROR MESSAGE Blender Stack Exchange requires external JavaScript from another domain, which is blocked or failed to load. http://www.outpostpm.org/scripts/index.html or here OSL Script node: Slider with value range between 0 and 1 (like Fac) https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/48821/osl-script-node-slider-with-value-range-between-0-and-1-like-fac are some hope for blender slider code...?

    NODES: Replace 'Mapping' with 'XYZ Sliders'

    I'd like to get code similar to this to add a NODE VECTOR SLIDER to 3dCoat - any ideas? from Tkinter import * master = Tk() w = Scale(master, from_=0, to=100) w.pack() w = Scale(master, from_=0, to=200, orient=HORIZONTAL) w.pack() mainloop() To query the widget, call the get method: w = Scale(master, from_=0, to=100) w.pack() print w.get() The default resolution is 1, which causes the widget to round all values to the nearest integer value. You can use the resolution option to specify another resolution; use -1 to disable rounding. w = Scale(from_=0, to=100, resolution=0.1)

    Not at all - it has no 'eyes' therefore it has no 'look'. In other words, the eyes are the HEART OF THE SOUL - and it has none... it's PHYSICAL - or material - not 'living' - creatures without eyes are very like an 'amoeba' or a worm - higher forms of 'life' have well-developed EYES. A cat's eye is not as developed as a human eye etc., When you look at someone - you always look FIRST at the EYES. All the focus should be the eyes. Look at REMBRANDT, or RAFAEL or VERMEER paintings... or GOYA! Look at Goya's INK DRAWINGS...
