First I'll state I'm a Blender user and lover by nature - however I'm trapped into using the awfully unstable crashing program called 3ds max (8 and 9) at work. There are two features which I think are very useful in max: 1. Edit mesh modifier. Lets say I loft a shape along a curve (BevObj shape alo...

Middle mouse button "Sticks" - OS X

I've posted this question before on elysiun about a year ago, and never had it answered. The problem never went away, I just ignored it. Now I can't. Here's the scenario: OS X Panther (fully updated) on iMac 1.8 G5 (original flat iMac) with Nvidia GF Ultra FX 5200. Two user accounts. The first accou...

Make and Scons are two "automaters" that help in compiling source code and making a binary.

The ZIPs are indeed binaries (.app) compiled with one of each of the compiler systems.

online library of C functions

A friend of mine has developed (and is still developing) http://www.codecogs.com as a repository of C functions for all sorts of...umm...programming...things... :shock: Some are GPL, some are commercial. He could use some submission of code - so if anyone is inclined to share a function or two, go a...

Alltaken:
All versions of OS X ship with Python 2.3x. You can install 2.4x from python.org, and it will coexist with 2.3.

10.3.9 Works great (Make & Scons version) except for shaded view. This is the result - regardless of cube rotation angle, lights, materials, etc.

I dropped all my emitters to 10% showing, and it still only played back at about 1 fps (better, but not good enough).
Keep your eyes open later today in the finished projects section for a link to my video (when done).

Its the 12 curve guides controlling the 8 particle emitters (one emitter has 5 curve guides and a total of 8000 particles) that's slowing me down. If I elminate them, everything is nice and speedy. I'm using the particle system to represent process flow of water, oil and bubbles in a skid package us...

feature: threads for more than rendering

Is it possible to make the GUI use multi processors? My p4 3 HT with 2G ram slugs down quite a bit on a relatively complex scene while doing a preview (wireframe alt-a). Task Manager shows that only 50% of the cpu is being used (I know it's misleading with HT..but nonetheless). There's gotta be a wa...

if you want to run blender in the background, navigate to your blender folder, say in Applications, and then:
