    UE4 in production environment
    posted by Saham Ali on April 8, 2016, 1:55 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hey all,

    Seeing if anyone has had any experience with the implementation of UE4 in a studio pipeline.

    My biggest issue with them is they provide a msi installer for the launcher, but once installed, it essentially allows the user to download multiple "engines" at their discretion. So if all of a sudden a new version comes out, each user could click download, and then Ive got 20+ people all trying to download 15GB of data from the internet.

    Since the actual installs are modular, you can copy the individual folders to systems and they fire up just fine. However you loose access to the launcher, which I am kind of ok with.

    The MSI launcher installer does things like give you right click context menus on .uproject files, so you can switch versions of the engine to open it with, or launch it in the editor or launch it as actual game, but I have reverse engineered that install and pushed it out to our users so they have that ability but these just seems like a lame way of having to do it.

    Their documentation for "studios" kinda lacks, and was wondering what if anything people have done to make this work smoothly in their environments.


    it very much feels like their software is great for indie studios, but how on earth would a large studio manage build versions etc. while also having the ability for the Epic software to still be available for marketplace access and such..

    Thanks!

  • 04/08/16--13:45: Image file formats?
  • Image file formats?
    posted by Anthony Pangan on April 8, 2016, 4:45 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Happy Friday all!

    This morning, the topic of image file formats came up when I discovered the final image sequence for one of our spots was rendered as PNG files. I asked, "Why did you use PNG?" and got a response, "Why shouldn't I use it?" I didn't have a good answer besides the fact that I've just typically never seen it before.

    So I looked into it, and PNG uses lossless compression DEFLATE and supports 16-bit integer out of AE or Nuke. My test file sizes also tended to be smaller compared to 16-bit TIFs or SGIs, which are the other formats I've typically seen used in my experience. Artists also say that it's faster working with PNG sequences as opposed to TIF.

    What do you guys use for things like final image sequence archives? Depending on who's doing it and alignment of moons, we have anywhere from PNG to TIF to uncompressed Quicktimes. What about interchange between different applications? From 3D to 2D we use a lot of multi-layer EXR and TIF.. sometimes PNG for mattes. From 2D, it's mostly TIF and PNG... DPX if we're working with footage. There's been a lot of "that's just the way we've done it" so I wanted see what others are doing, and lock down a spec.

    Thanks!

    VRAY SSS rendering solutions.
    posted by Grant Fraser on April 9, 2016, 7:30 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I consult for a small animation house (3 seats of Maya 2016). They use VRAY 3.3 and like to dial up the SubSurface Scattering to get the feel they like. Parts of their current render farm are getting on a bit and they have a new job coming in and need more render capacity. Current render capacity: 5 x i7 4 core, 2 x i7 6 core, XEON dual CPU 8 core, XEON dual CPU 6 core, 3 x Mac Pros with 4 to 6 cores. Total cores = 76. Total 393.8GHz Any thoughts on a strategy to update/upgrade the system in a cost effective way? They are asking for a couple of workstations rather than dedicated render-nodes. VRAY 3 RT does have GPU SSS rendering but can be limited in other ways (polygon only). Options:? Workstation(s) using the new XEON E5 v4 family with lot's of cores and GTX980 Ti GPU's Put GTX980 Ti GPUs into the older i7 4 core render nodes and use VRAY RT. Any other ideas.

    Options for high-speed long distance data transport
    posted by Will McCown on April 9, 2016, 9 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Greetings:

    Anyone have any recommendations for moving large amounts of data via IP over long distance?

    We have a 10Gb/S pipe from LA to our disaster recovery site on the east coast -- latency ~60-70 mS and I have a mandate to fill it.

    Aspera, when it works, seems to work pretty well but has a number of issues, not the least of which is it's cost at that bandwidth. 

    Anyone using anything else?

    -Will

    Options for high-speed long distance data transport
    posted by Michelle Munson on April 9, 2016, 9:15 p.m. (1 day ago)
    We have a new multi-host/multi core option built int0 our 3.6 version (now released) and configurable in the aspera.conf that would allow you to fill that with multiple streams, which avoids bottlenecks of single streams such as storage I/O. I will contact you out of band and see if that is an option.

  • VOIP referral
    posted by George Fitz on April 13, 2016, 1:35 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi folks, I have a friend who owns a small PR company (around 10 employees) with a VOIP phone system that is evidently dropping calls. She has rightly lost faith in the company that sold her the system and asked me if I could fix the issues or could recommend someone who can. I dont know a damn thing about VOIP and I dont have time to help her anyway. I think she just needs a person to come in, evaluate their system and make changes or recommendations.. If anyone is interested in doing a little consulting for her, or can send me a referral to someone, please contact me directly off-list. Thanks!

    Tweaking Flame's Config Files
    posted by David Kossin on April 15, 2016, 10:46 a.m. (2 days ago)

    There seems to be a lot of settings that can be altered in config files for Flame such as memory allocation and self checking intervals. I'm assuming most are best left untouched. But I'm wondering if there are a couple adjustments that are worth making to help Flame run a little smoother. We have 6 Flames running 2016.2.1 that are networked together. There are on a 10g internel network in order to share their framestores with each other. Again, just curious if anyone has found any benificial tweaks in those config files. Thanks! (From a sys admin perspective Flame is new to me)

    Quicktime for windows no longer supported
    posted by Nelson Lim on April 18, 2016, 1:36 p.m. (2 days ago)

    Hi guys,

     

    Seems like apple has pulled support for quicktime and there are security vulnerabilities that apple won't patch anymore. 

    http://www.wired.com/2016/04/uninstall-quicktime-on-windows/

    Since we rely on quicktime to get anim playblasts through maya and all done in qt mov format, does anyone know how else we can make qt mov files and view quicktime movies without installing apple quicktime?

     

    Thanks

    Nelson

    Anyone using Qumulo storage in a vfx enviroment?

    need to look into shared storage for around 15 vfx stations and 30 render nodes running Maya/Vray, my old centos storage servers can no longer handle to workload and stress.....

    looking at around 40-60TB in storage capacity.

     

    The Oracle ZFS looked interesting too but sounds real expensive -

    Isilon in a Post Production Environment
    posted by Tom Step on April 28, 2016, 6:22 p.m. (2 days ago)

    Hello,

     

    I am looking for some insight on how various post production companies deploy their Isilon storage clusters. From choice of NFS/SMB, networking configuration (1Gb and 10Gb fiber), to  balancing (Round Robin, throughput, etc). I have an 8-node cluster ~700TB, 16 10Gb ports, 16 1Gb ports, Extreme Networks 1/10Gb switches, and about 30 editbays running Adobe CC on OSX. All media stored on cluster, mostly HD, but steadily moving into 2K/4K. 

    Feel free to contact me directly if that is preferred.

    Thanks in advance,

    Tom
