    ASWF - Academy Software Foundation
    posted by Mike Rochefort on Aug. 10, 2018, 10:55 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Not sure how many here will be interested, but there's a new kid on the block if you're looking for some more mailing lists to sub to:



    Mission statement:

    The mission of the Academy Software Foundation (ASWF) is to increase the quality and quantity of contributions to the content
    creation industry's open source software base; to provide a neutral forum to coordinate cross-project efforts; to provide a common
    built and test infrastructure; and to provide individuals and organizations a clear path to participation in advancing our open source ecosystem.

    Seems interesting, looking to see how this all pans out.

    Interesting options for inter-site reviews?
    posted by Jeremy Lang on Aug. 13, 2018, 2:20 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Looking for options to link screening rooms/theaters between locations. Have somethinghacked together but want to see what kind of turn-key options are out there that might make the experience more seamless, make everybody feel they're in the same room.

    Anything specific to poke at, at Siggraph?

  • 08/15/18--23:00: MPAA v4.03
  • MPAA v4.03
    posted by  on Aug. 16, 2018, 2 a.m.

    Hi all,

     

    Quickly flipping through the newly released MPAA guidelines and as expected there are some interesting additions relating to encryption at rest and encryption in flight. Of particular interest is DS-11.4

     

    Encrypt content at rest and in motion, including across virtual server instances, using a minimum of AES-256 encryption. and it goes on to link a page that doesnt exist. DS11.1 recommends SAN/NAS systems need to be encrypted, along with workstations, laptops and phones which a lot of us are already doing.

     

    Weve seen this coming but I think it is going to cause some of us headaches from a cost/performance stand point. Im wondering who is doing this already, aside from those totally in the cloud.

  • Deploy Maya with PDQDeploy
    posted by Robin Scher on Aug. 28, 2018, 4:45 p.m. (2 days ago)
    Has anyone been able to get this to work? I can create a "deployment" from the Maya installer and that works great when I run it manually. But nothing I have tried has worked to get this deployment to be able to be run automatically using PDQDeploy. Any tricks or tips to get this to work?

    Basic network versus local software deployment questions
    posted by conomara on Sept. 4, 2018, 10:03 a.m. (3 days ago)

    Hello,

     

    I have been working at large companies for the past decade ++ as an artist/some pipeline work, and have since moved to a small one. They are running software locally....houdini, maya etc

    and are having predicatable trouble, having to run around to each machine when updates are needed, individual machines running problematic versions etc.

    In larger companies we had a disk image that we pushed out on boot to the artists local machines and render farm (linux).

    However Im pretty sure the application binaries were central on a server ,and not pushed out locally with the image, I dont think the image contained much in the way of the actual applications, more env, linux distro maybe.

    If I remember right we would source server based binaries such as houdini, maya, katana etc and then I guess we were running an instance of houdini locally.

    Does this sounds correct/possible

    Also, is there a significant hit on the network (i dont remember there ever being) from sourcing binaries from a server. we have 1 Gig switches I tink.

    Im sure this was never an issue, eg compared with render farm blades requesting textures acorss a network. 

    Also, new studio is (shudder) windows, is this setup possible on windows.

    And i guess we need a licence server as well, with floating licences?

    All in all we need at least a sys admin to come in part time/consultant, then full time, but I want to know that this is a practical acheivable thing first based on a pretty basic network. I remember being able to do this no worries in the larger companies 12 years ago.

    Final question, is what if any are the downsides of mainting image and software centrally

    big thanks in advance

    Conor

    Basic network versus local software deployment questions
    posted by Zorion Terrell on Sept. 4, 2018, 12:05 p.m. (3 days ago)

    Tom, loading Maya from the network on Windows is totally doable and load times are not as brutal as you might think.

     

    Conor, how big is your studio? You can easily maintain installed versions of packages with a tool like PDQ Deploy and Inventory.

    That being said many apps can be run off the network as well.

    Subject: Re: [SSA-Discuss] Basic network versus local software deployment questions

     

    Conor, it sounds like you're in a bit over your head. You do need to get someone in  with enough experience to guide you. 

    You are approaching your questions backward - how much can we cram into our current setup. You should start from what you need to be able to do and what you need to put into place to support that. What is causing inefficiencies? How much time is being spent on various activities?

    The answer to your basic question about whether "this is a practical achievable thing" would be hard to answer. First, you aren't very specific in your questions. Second, it would require more in depth knowledge of your setup.

    Whether or not software can be run from the network or locally is wholly dependent on the Operating System of the workstation and the requirements of the application. You won't be able to run Windows Maya from the network. Even if you could, I'm not sure you would want to. Your load times would be awful.

    For reference, 1 Gb switches are now more "quaint" than cutting edge.

    For your concern about a licensing question, that's a decision that needs to be made on the cost of the licenses, the ability to share them, the need for flexibility, cost, etc. It's easier to manage floating licenses. But this will also depend on the size of the company, the sophistication of the IT staff, and the financial resources available.

    Find a good local consultant who can point you in the right direction. There's lots of people on this forum who consult.

    10-bit Display on Linux with GeForce cards
    posted by Mike Rochefort on Oct. 31, 2018, 11:30 p.m. (6 days ago)
    Has anyone been able to successfully get 10-bit color working on Linux when using a GeForce card? I know on Windows that windowed OpenGL applications are unsupported, but I could have sworn that limitation didn't exist for Linux. So far with a 1070 plugged into 10-bit capable BenQ monitor (8-bit + FRC) over DisplayPort I'm giving CentOS a brain hemorrhage to say the least. Enabling by modifying the XOrg config's Depth parameters.

    Wondering if anybody else has done this successfully (even with Quadro's). My main reasoning is for single monitor configurations. I realize dedicated output cards with a second display is probably the norm.

    Cheers,
    Mike
