  3. Ola Joseph, We are here crushing bugs non stop, less and less bugs, but we still have some important ones to solve. Any doubt, msg me. Thanks Tom
  4. Ola Dan! Send me later a simple scene and I show you How it works on EIAS 9.1 Thanks Tom
  5. Ola Dan! If you need to render a still image and its using Raytrace, opening in EIAS 9.1 Demo, you will be able to use all Ram of your Mac on Camera and Its also multithreaded :) Thanks Tom
  6. Hello, Okay, new problem. I discovered the machine I have been using does not have enough RAM to render a high resolution version of the scene I'm working on. So, I moved to another Mac with Snow Leopard that has plenty of RAM. Well, 10 hours later, it failed with an error: It happens when I have the render settings set to save to a PICT file. I have subsequently found saving as an IMG file works fine. (At least it did on the low-res renders; I'll know in about ten hours for sure.) My guess is that, judging by the "QTUT" mention in the error message, I'm missing somethin
  7. Hello Tom! Sorry for the slow reply. Thanks, but I figured out a workaround, plus discovered I need to redo my model at some point. Part of the problem is that the object I want to glow is not large enough. But, that'll be a problem to sort out later! Thanks, Dan
  8. Ola Dan! Its possible in EIAS 9.1, please, send me a private email: tom@eias3d.com I can send you a sample project and How to play with EIAS 9.1 Thanks Tom
  9. Hello all, Okay, this feels like a stupid question but is there a way in EIAS7 to get an object to behave as a light? In my model, there's a narrow groove winding groove that I would like to glow. I have a separate object that runs along the innermost part of the groove. The object itself is barely noticeable, but if I could get it to cast light or glow, then it would be perfect. I have had no luck in that regard. I'm going to keep playing with it--the rest of the scene is almost where I want it--but figured I would ask in case there's something simple I'm missing. It's also possibl
  10. Hello Tomas! Looking forward to v10! Thanks, Dan
  11. Ola Dan! Cool it worked :) We improved even more EIAS v10 import system! Thanks Tom
  12. Hello Tomas, Good news! I got the EIAS 9.1 Demo working on a 10.6.8 machine. I imported my model as an .obj, set up the textures, then exported to a .fac. I imported that .fac into EIAS 7.0.1 and it appears to work. Need to apply all the textures. I have to line them up as 0.5, 0.5, 0 instead of 0, 0, 0 but that's manageable. Test render shows the textures appearing as they should. Had to have been something with the OBJ2FACT conversion. Maybe I never used the right settings but I tried a bunch of different settings and never got anywhere close. Thanks for all your help!
  13. Ola Dan! tom@eias3d.com Thanks Tom
  14. Hello Tomas, Looks like I can't send you a message. Thanks, Dan
  15. Hello Tomas, Sorry, got busy with work yesterday. I did setup EIAS 7.0.1 on a machine with Mac OS X 10.4.11. And the textures did not work. So, it is not an issue with EIAS 7.0.1 and Mac OS X 10.6.8. That narrows it down to user error (me) or a problem with the conversion using OBJ2FACT, possibly user error there too, though I have pretty much exhausted all the different settings I can think of. I'll send you a PM. Thanks, Dan
  16. Ola Dan! Lets do it tomorrow, don't worry with your current mac :) Thanks Tom
  17. Hello Tomas, I've already shut down the High Sierra box for the day. Maybe tomorrow? Will a Mac Mini work? Maybe that's the problem? Do they have compatible graphics cards? I have access to models with these: Intel GMA 950, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and Intel Iris 5100. Thanks, Dan
  18. Ola Dan, Minimal system: Macintosh: OS 10.6.X or newer, Intel processor, 1GB RAM, 32-bit 3D Graphics card with at least 256MB of memory, USB Port Its compatible with 10.13.X, probably is giving a problem with the new OS Gatekeeper security system, please, install TeamViewer.com, then, msg me in private, I will control remotely your machine and fix the problem, a few minutes :) Thanks Tom
  19. Hello Tomas, I thought I would give the EIAS 9.1 Demo a try to see if it would import my .obj and allow me to export to a .fac I could use in EIAS 7, but I couldn't get it to run. Is it not compatible with High Sierra (10.13)? I can try it on a Snow Leopard machine instead, but the High Sierra machine was handier so I tried it first. Thanks, Dan
  20. Ola Dan, If you want, send me the model :) I can test here.. EIAS 9.1 loads .OBJ with material and textures if the model use UV space. EIAS v10 will have even more options :) Thanks Tom
  21. Hello Tomas, While I don't want to rule out user error, I am beginning to believe that my install of EIAS 7.0.1 does not play well with Mac OS X 10.6.8. Textures do not preview in Animator. All surfaces are gray until I render the file. I cannot use .png, .jpg, or .tif files for textures; only .img. Weird thing is, I opened an old file (created when the machine still had Mac OS X 10.4.11 installed) and textures are displayed in Animator but, if I make any change, the textures disappear and I can never get them back again, even with Undo. I have tried a number of settings in both
  22. Ola Dan! At least you were able to run OBJ2FACT.. long time I don't use it :) Thanks Tom
  23. Hello, Slow progress being made. I think. OBJ2FACT works on a Mac G4 with Mac OS X 10.4.11. Converts the .obj file from Silo to a .fac. Found I need to have Flip Z-axis checked for it to convert correctly. Resulting .fac imports into EIAS 7.0.1 without issue. All parts and such are labeled as in the Silo file. Still having no luck getting the UV maps to work. I suspect user error since I had them working (though not aligned) the other day, before I had the model importing correctly. At this point, I'm not sure if I don't have OBJ2FACT configured correctly to translate the
  24. Ola Dan! Deal, any problem, please, msg me, I will help. Thanks Tom
  25. Hello, I figured out the problem with OBJ2FACT. It's a PowerPC application. Under Mac OS X 10.4.11, Rosetta was included on Intel Macs so PowerPC apps would still run. Rosetta was an optional install under Snow Leopard. So, if Rosetta was installed, PowerPC apps would run. If not, then no. Evidently, I didn't do the optional install when upgrading. I have an old MacBook G4 with 10.4.11, so I'm going to see if OBJ2FACT will work on it. Dan
  26. Ola Dan! Please, try to import in the EIAS 9.1 Demo app, see if it works, using .fact or .obj, it will convert for you. Thanks Tom
