    Forcing Radeon Drivers on Fire Pro D700 (Mac Pro Garbage Can)
    posted by William Sandler on May 20, 2015, 3:40 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Thanks, we'll give it a shot. It seems the card is just not up to the task though. I'm sure it's been said many time before but Apple made a huge mistake by making the GPU's unchangeable. Looks like we're going to have to try the external GPU Thunderbolt method.

    Hey all. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to use a Radeon driver on a Fire Pro in a Bootcamp'd Mac Pro. We're trying to run in-house built Unity applications and it seems the Fire Pro drivers are more optimized for video editing and not gaming. It seems the D700 is similar to an R9 so we're hoping there is a way to use Radeon drivers.

    We're on the lookout for a couple of new 4k (Ultra HD I guess) TVs for VFX dailies. We've looked at the Samsung HU7500but the colour/saturation shift as you step sideways was terrible!

    What's a good TV that can be kind of calibrated for around 2,000? We're not grading on it but to get the 2 TVs to display the same image would be helpful.

    Storage for Houdini (VFX) simulation and massive rendering of simulations
    posted by Mathieu Arseneault on May 25, 2015, 5:29 p.m. (4 days ago)

    Hi everyone !

    I am looking for fast and reliable storage for massive houdini simulations and renders ; the nature of this process being random, the normal caching features of storage does not apply, we are looking for the best approach.

    First off using a dedicated storage for vfx... but then, any special config ?

    Does anyone have great stories to tell ?

    I am really curious!

    Thanks

    Mathieu

    Storage for Houdini (VFX) simulation and massive rendering of simulations
    posted by  on May 26, 2015, 1:45 p.m. (3 days ago)
    Having done these types of sims with Houdini, expect a single sims data to be 100 MB/frame to 1 GB/frame (Houdini tends to run out of RAM on a 128GB machine somewhere in the neighborhood of a 5GB/frame sim, so 5GB/frame seems to be a practical limit for the time being.  Writing the sims will likely not be an issue youre talking writing 200 frames @ 500 MB average/frame = 100GB over the course of multiple hours.  If you have 10 sim machines all doing this, e.g. overnight sims, thats 1TB/6hours = ~50 MB/sec not too difficult.

    Now, the rendering of these sims is where its gonna hurt.  The problem is, seldom is a frame rendered with a single sim.  More than likely, a single rendered frame might use the results of 5 different sims, so suddenly you have 60 machines each trying to pull 5 GB from your server, all at once.  And the fun part is, each machine is loading a /different/ 5 GB than the others.

    Putting this all on a separate server is definitely preferred, that way you isolate the fx departments shenanigans from the rest of the shop.  But you /will/ run out of disk space.

    Each simulation size can be from 200GB to 10TB of data.
    Then rendered from a farm of 20 to 60 machine, each reading a different massive file for each rendered frame.

    We have placed some of the fastest Memory Attached Storage (PCE-Express gen3 Flash) into production with simillar needs at The Jim Henson Compamy. We are currently allowing SUSTAINED and multiclient 4K editing an dplayback off of a single StratoFlash server. These are simultaneous and multi-client bi-directional throughout of around 1.4GB/second on a new 10G/40G switch. Thats pretty much the fastest storage out there, with 10 or more clients at these speeds.

    They have three prototypes and a number of recent sales in the Entertainment Indusry, and seem to be going places. Check them out at www.stratoflash.com. They can also stack and cluster there ZFS storage for TB sizes well above 15TB's.

  • 05/27/15--14:50: Maya 2016 Env Vars
  • Maya 2016 Env Vars
    posted by Saham Ali on May 27, 2015, 5:50 p.m. (2 days ago)
    Had a couple questions and wanted to get everyone's temperature of Maya Deployments.

    • Do most people opt to use system EnvVars to set things like 'MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH', 'MAYA_SCRIPTS_PATH' etc.

    Or

    • Use custom Batch files or scripts to set the variables there and then execute maya?
    Or

    • Rely on maya.env to setup environments? (how does that work with the farm?)


    Reason I ask, is that were trying to get Maya 2016 rolled into the fold in an environment that has been 2014, and coming to find that I cant have both running simultaneously because the paths set hold plugins and scripts specific to 2014. Leaving them in place make 2016 freak out.
    If I remove them all 2016 behaves better.

    Does any one have a technique to bypass system env vars by forcing ones from a batch file?
    I thought I had it by making one like:

    set "MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH" = \\PATH\TO\STUFF
    etc
    etc
    "C:\path\to\maya2016\maya.exe"

    But when I run a getenv in script editor, it throws back all the search paths for all my variables like its still looking at the system.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Hi,

     

    Sorry if this has been gone over a thousand times, I tried searching the message board and I’m not sure I’m using it correctly.  Does it support AND in search strings?  Anyway…

     

    I wanted to try mounting NFS shares on Windows 7 machines.  As I understand it I’d need the Enterprise or Ultimate versions of Windows to do this, and they are all Pro.  I was curious about alternative client software for this, such as http://www.citi.umich.edu/projects/nfsv4/windows/readme.html

     

    Has anyone played around with this?  Do I want to?

     

    Thanks as always,

    Hi,

    I'm finding that Nuke really wants to pop up a browser to the Nuke Plugins page when installing and this makes the auto install from munki fail. This is on OSX. Has anyone found a way around this?

    Thanks,
    Greg
