Re: I9 vs i7 , more cores vs less cores which one is faster in realflow

Hey Christian, That makes sense. The simulation I'm doing doing now is fairly complex, but not with multiple domains interacting with each other. I've got a single domain, with 4 pieces of geometry, 2 animated, 2 stationary. The 2 animated objects are polygon heavy, so much so I have to increase the...

Re: I9 vs i7 , more cores vs less cores which one is faster in realflow

So far, it does not look like there is much difference between 16 threads and 32. The simulation I mentioned before starts out at about 3 minutes per frame, but as time goes on, the simulation time goes up. In about an hour, it's up to 5 or 6 minutes per frame. If you leave it going for a really lon...

Re: I9 vs i7 , more cores vs less cores which one is faster in realflow

Thanks for the info Christian, Actually, my card has 6GB, but you're right. Since its a lower end card, it probably just isn't fast enough. I can't afford 1000 on a top of the line card like that. Zohayb, Thanks for your info too. I'll try that right away and see if it makes a difference. I'll start...

Re: I9 vs i7 , more cores vs less cores which one is faster in realflow

Thanks Christian,

I've got a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 but when I turned it on, I think the simulation actually went slower. It's only about a 200 dollar card.

When you turn on the Cuda, does that work in addition too or instead of the CPU?

Re: I9 vs i7 , more cores vs less cores which one is faster in realflow

Hey Christian, I just built a new system for myself. It's an AMD Threadripper 1st Generation at 3.4ghz with 16 cores and 32 threads. It's great for rendering, but not so great for Real Flow for reasons you've just talked about. Any idea how many threads is too much? Does it have to do with the numbe...

Re: Combining two liquid meshes - need help please

Not sure about combining the fluids, but for smoothing the mesh in general, try adding some Filtering. You'll find it in the Mesh Node controls. You can also increase the polygon size which will make the mesh less detailed.

Good Luck,

Wow! That's fantastic! Very well done. I love the freeze frame and camera move at the end. :D

Re: The new release of RF10 (that is RF10.5)

Sounds great!

Anybody know what the Macro Daemon does? It is a series of commands that you don't need to do in separate manual steps?

Thanks.

Re: RealFlow crash course by Davesplaining

Thanks! I pretty much know the basics, but I'll try to go over this anyway. You never know if you missed something.

I'll have to ask him about other methods that are more advanced later.

Re: Particles crossing object

What type of particles are you using? Look like standard, but I can't tell because your image is cut off. Also, check collision settings in your object properties. Is it set to Solid Outside, Solid Inside, or Shell. Another thing that might be the problem is the direction your normals are facing in ...
