The newer gcc compiler has the option to auto-detect the cpu options, so I used the cflag ' -march=native'. But I needed to use the correct cflag ' -march=k8'. ( k8 for amd64 family of cpus) Its worth knowing that 'test.blend' rendered 3 seconds faster with the k8 flag than it did with the 'native' ...

Blender > ffmpeg trouble on Gentoo Linux.[SOLVED]

Whenever I try to render an animation in any ffmpeg format, Blender crashes. Compiled on Gentoo, cflags = -o2 -march=native (I'm using amd64) USE="ffmpeg nls openal openexr openmp player png" emerge blender-2.48 It compiled fine. When I try an ffmpeg animation: Starting ouput to /tmp/0001_0007.d d(f...

It seems I need to recompile it with ffmpeg staticly included. Okay, I'm looking at the ebuild from Gentoo : http://members.shaw.ca/pamric/Blender%20ebuild Can I add 'ffmpeg' to the use line? #IUSE="jpeg mozilla png sdl static truetype" IUSE="blender-game ffmpeg jpeg nls openal openexr openmp player...

To me it looks like a FFMPEG crash, try checking their forums/bug trackers too? Thanks for the idea jesterking. I will look into that, but it seems odd that everything else works ffmpeg just fine, even dvd::rip. Since Blender worked with a generic build, I suspect Blender may be using a cpu instruc...

Using Sabayon linux 4 -64 bit, genkernel; AMD64 optimised ( otherwise generic) Blender 2.48a r3 Cflags = "-O2 -march=native -pipe" ffmpeg was also recompiled, and everything else runs smooth, including mpg4 videos. As soon as I try to animate to any ffmpeg format Blender crashes. Terminal shows: ric...

Here is some good information on the subject, it even has the math used to implement it; http://www.math.nus.edu.sg/~matzuows/csx.pdf *edit* Actually I found an easy way to do it in Gimp. That the sort of thing Gimp is more suited to, I'm just one of those Blender addicts who wish Blender was the on...

not particularly useful for animation
True. Most of the time it wouldn't be needed, but I'm putting the idea up because it would probably be very simple to add to blender, and there is almost nothing else out there with that feature.

Odd. It works for me. Anyhow, that link doesn't say too much, but they are one of several groups working on ways to take several frames of an animation and mix them into an image with higher resolution and contrast. Its a process not unlike motion blur or AA oversampling with several frames. Imagine...

Resolution enhancement . [ Feature Request ]

I've seen this sort of process demonstrated on tv. The results were really impressive. :)
Would it be possible to incorporate this ?
This link is related. Google finds more.

I just confirmed I have py2.4, but Blender seems to be looking for one of its libs in the wrong place.

thanks for all that work to make the 64 bit install easier, but It still doesn't run for me.. :oops: Heres the error;
blender-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.4.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Any idea how I can fix this?

I tried that a while ago.
Correct me anyone if this has changed, but particle emissions get calculated before animations, so they always emit from the first loc.
Animate the camera instead. :roll:

Heh, sounds the same as my system. This is a common problem with ATI. Ati doen't seem to take openGL seriously (Blender uses an unusual method of refreshing the screen,-correct me if I'm wrong..).

Render prob; 2.41(64) in Linux(Ubuntu) 64bit.

I'm trying to track down a problem. In Ubuntu Linux 64 bit, Blender works ok, until I render, then if the render takes more than a few seconds, the render window leaves tracks when moved or stays on the screen when minimised/closed. A longer render locks the whole workspace. The debug test ends; ***...

I have been trying to install Blender on Ubuntu (Dapper, 64bit) using its automatic installer (Synaptic). It installs, but when I try to run it, I get the 'Unable to open window' error. Looking through several board I have found several people have the same problem, One suggensted it was an dependan...
