Re: How to construct this window.

You can use the boolean tool in Modeler side but the main window frame (the cube you make holes in) should have more edges on it : modeler's boolean get lost if there is not enough polygonal informations where the volume is cut off. How to add details ? 1. In point edit mode, select one face on the ...

Re: Scene editor atributes?

DD, would you have, by chance, a trick to set a straight angle for all keyframes at once ? By default, tS settings are : -0.666 Tension, 0.000 Continuity, and 0.000 Bias. A straight angle is : 0.000 Tension, -1.000 Continuity, and 0.000 Bias. To animate an object with straight angles, we must select...

Re: Model or 6.6

Also, the 7.6 model side has a BAD bug that tS6.6 does NOT have. Reflective objects don't reflect the background color. There are ways around this in 7.6 , but they don't render as fast. This looks like it was broke when they implemented the newer LightWorks render engine. (When they added the HDRI...

Re: Video card recommendations

I obviously need a system which will work well for 6 but would also like to be prepared for 7 and 8...... You will never get prepared enough for tS8 :D More seriously, any 3D card above 100$ will display trueSpace -tS6.6/Modeler- interface at good framerates. Keep in mind that tS6.6/Modeler display...

Re: Can't render entire animation!

If you render at a resolution of 320x240, you may not need 2000x1500 pixels textures :)
This is also an area for optimization.

Re: Can't render entire animation!

Yes, this is a memory issue. From my experience, a 80 Mb scene is rather too big for trueSpace. I encounter such issues for 40 Mb scenes sometimes. You could try to optimize your scene first (like reduce polygons number on objects at a distance), then free as much memory as possible in the tasks man...

Re: PC upgrade

Thank you ; this confirms some informations I've heard regading tS6.6/Modeler and SLI modes.
As long as we don't need 2 or more monitors, a faster GPU is still better than 2 graphic cards.
