  1. Hi VW Im still using VW 15 architect and I have a project requiring stage truss. I have downloaded 3D DWG from Prolyte but its just a bit clunky and renders take forever. I remember that Spotlight had truss symbols which were pretty simple. Does anyone out there have a VW 15 spotlight they are no longer using and would like to sell at a affordable rate? Thanks Phil
  2. Hi Tamsin Thanks this looks good will give it a try. Phil
  3. Hi Any tips on converting Renderworks 2008 files to 2012 Thanks
  4. Hi sounds possible I was watching the activity log as the render was running and the ram activity didn't go much past the mid point ie 3gig 2x1gig in first 2 slots on each board installed by Apple 2x2gig in 2nd 2 slots installed myself Mac recognises all 6gig so should be ok Will investigate further if VW only uses 3gig Hard disc has loads os space activity monitor showing 45-50gig virtual memory loads of space on the disk so would assume not an issue ????????? Ta Phil
  5. Thanks Checked console log Get this message "14/05/2008 10:13:09 [0x0-0x296296].net.nemetschek.VectorWorks[8821] VectorWorks(8821,0xa0994fa0) malloc: *** mmap(size=2097152) failed (error code=12) 14/05/2008 10:13:09 [0x0-0x296296].net.nemetschek.VectorWorks[8821] *** error: can't allocate region 14/05/2008 10:13:09 [0x0-0x296296].net.nemetschek.VectorWorks[8821] *** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug" Checking out what this means - has any one got any ideas??? Full spec for render is- ANIMATION ALONG A PATH HIDDEN LINE RENDER QUICK TIME COMPRESION TYPE - VIDEO ( THOUGH I ALSO TRIED ANIMATION SAME ISSUE ) QUALITY - LEAST FRAMES PER SECOND - 8 NO KEY FRAMES DURATION - 2 SECONDS TIME SCALE - 1 I looked at loads of options but seemed to be out of memory after about 14 frames!! Any ideas on better compression option Thanks Phil
  6. Hi We have just attempted to put together a 30 second 3d walk through of a store we are working on. The problem is we keep getting out of memory messages only after 15 or so frames of a 10 hour render. Even when rendering at lowest resolution and lowest frame setting. This was of a hidden line render of a fairly complex store environment with a fair amount of complex 3d forms, but not overly tricky. The machine is the latest Quad 2.8 Mac pro with 6gig of ram running VW12.5.3 We have 4 spare ram slots so could load these but don't want to spend a fortune and still have problem. In the end I had to do in 2 second chunks dumping every thing that could not be seen in the the render and pasting back in when needed. Then we stitched together after in quick time. Looked ok but a little jumpy and a lot more effort than just letting the Mac render over night. Any thoughts Ta Phil
