  pflow particle size trouble
Posted by: aldred2 - 07-20-2005, 01:44 PM - Forum: AfterBurn - Replies (3)

Could someone take a look at this for me? Why are the Spray particles behaving as expected, but the PFlow particles jumping staight to the maximum size?



  Popping with AB 3.2 and Max 7
Posted by: dlocke - 07-19-2005, 02:46 PM - Forum: AfterBurn - Replies (5)


I've been getting a weird popping effect with AB and particle flow, even when the step size is very small.

I've read on the Discreet boards that there is an unofficial patch available and I was wondering if it is possible to get this patch. Or will an official patch be released in the near future?

Any help would be appreciated as we are working on a project that requires a lot of AB work.

Thanks in advance.

  Generating Foam From Water Hitting Pier

I've mentioned this several times myself, but another user brought the subject up on the Discreet DCP forum and wasn't able to reach this forum for some reason, so I said I'd bring it up here.

  Can't get Vmap feature to work under max 7 w/AB 3.2
Posted by: wsauls - 07-07-2005, 11:28 PM - Forum: AfterBurn - Replies (2)

I turned the noise levels to 0 as suggested in the AB help but it just goes to smooth balls. Yes, the vmap daemon is in the AB particles/daemons list, and I've tried scaling the noise all up and down and sideways. I've tried the typical max noise map and the cellular map but AB doesn't want to use them.


  Afterburn and backburner
Posted by: tuomasj - 06-13-2005, 09:46 AM - Forum: AfterBurn - Replies (6)


I am having troubles with our render-farm and afterburn. I copied all files from afterburn's plugin-directory (afterburn.dlo etc etc) in our shared network plugin directory, but everytime I try to render something with AB in our renderfarm, it doesn't find any dlu files. Do I have to install AB on every renderfarm node or is there a "some sort of network plugin" for AB.



  Sea Surface Shadows
Posted by: Ryebread - 06-06-2005, 08:38 PM - Forum: DreamScape - Replies (1)

Can the sea surface receive shadows when using the sea material?

I can't get the sea to receive shadows, only the ship in the sea. I have tried using the shadows built into the sun light as well as a separate spot light to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

  light below horizon
Posted by: aldred2 - 05-27-2005, 03:51 PM - Forum: DreamScape - Replies (6)

Am I missing a setting? I get zero light and a black sky when the sun is lower than the horizon (or the light is lower than its target).

  Dark spots in sea material
Posted by: treed - 05-23-2005, 05:38 PM - Forum: DreamScape - Replies (2)

Ok, I've never seen this before... maybe someone can help out. At times there are dark stripes in the ocean. I was wanting to do a ariel shot of the ocean but then ran into this. I tried playing with the sub surface but that has nothing to do with it. But sometimes adjusting the bump map on the material helps but when you rotate the camera they appear again.


Kresimir, you can delete the other account I made which is treed_85. I accidently made two.
