Quote - > Quote - Ho well il have to try the export option since I dont know how to reduce texture sizes.  

In the Output tab select the Collect texture option which will enable the slider for the size of the collected textures. Set the size to 2k or 1k and you are done. As usual, there are full details in the Reality User's Guide.

Hope this helps.

 

Certainly does I read the RUG many times but I suffer from ADD LOL. I will need to do this because even when I would re start the saved scene right from LUX it would take 5 to 7 minutes for it to run without bogging down so that I could adjust settings.  Render times did not take longer though.  I had it bake for approx 6 hours..

Not now

I was just looking and don't see anything about how to set that now

I can't download anything that's on my download page at the moment says that the files aren't available

I was able to d/l the 2 items I bought for a dollar each but was stuck with all the PC & Mac files (Sorry for taking the thread sideways a bit) but this is also a nice community :)

It looks like Daz isn't the only site with problems.. DA vanished off the grid last night, still is unreachable. ..or is it just me?

I am able to enter my account at dA...

What's you account name? May be just some routing problems between dA and your ISP.

 

I've just been there.

Thanks Reggie and mbin!  I'm glad I still 'exist' there mbin! :) http://callad31735.deviantart.com/

Browser 'thinks' a long time than says "The page cannot be displayed". What should I do now? Just wait until the ISP thinghy works again?

that link works ok for me, so not sure - I'm not very internet savvy when it comes to issues!

 

try entering it as 'me.deviantart.com' in the address... (although that may only work if you stay logged in...?)

There's reports of a 6.0 quake hitting Northern Italy this morning. Anyone know what part of Italy Paolo was vacationing in? The quake was in the region of Emilia Romagna, thats the extent of what I know.


  mbin    ( ) ( posted at 6:33AM Sun, 20 May 2012  · @3930985

if you have ever had an email from DA in response to an issue you may have raised, you could use that as something to reply with to make them aware that you have an issue? ...anyway, I hope it sorts itself out soon!

Hello.

I woke up last night feeling a few shakes but it was fairly faint here in Trieste where I am. 

 

I'm fine, thank you very much for your concern.

Yes, I tried that, also the other pc could not reach dA. So I just wait and see what happens. Thanks for the tip though! :)

I think there is a problem with the "Domain Name Server" of your ISP. But there are options, you can choose an other DNS yourself. Read here -> https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Looks like Paolo had the right idea setting up shop here..

 

Glad you Ok Paolo

 

Charley my D/A is also fine no worries about OT like I said we are a community. BTW thanks for the kind words on D/A coming from you that was nice. I have been making multi character scenes from the get go since my thing is story based...


  callad    ( ) ( posted at 10:26AM Sun, 20 May 2012  · @3931068

Thanks guys, but I think the problem is regional here.. I phoned some friends, they could not get to dA either. sigh ..on my mobile phone it worked, kinda.. old phone, small screen. 

I just have to be patient I guess..

Question does reducing the texture size simply help load / run larger scenes does it also reduce render times? Are you doing this eveytime you render? Can anything get affected because of this?

Hi everyone... This forum seems so foreign to me... 

Anyway, I figured I'd pop an image into the new thread...It took me a while to figure out how to size it...
