cycles cpu rendering - a question of memory usage

hi, simple question: *not thinking about performance*, will a big scene rendered in cycles make usage of systems swap if systems memory isn't big enough? in my opinion the kernel would deal with it, so blender could use mem+swap when needed. not talking about GPU-rendering, cycles cpu-render only. p...

Re: Help me teach blender to special needs

For win: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-id/windows7/type-without-using-the-keyboard-on-screen-keyboard For mac: Go to Settings->Language&Text - enable Keyboard & Character Viewer and check the bo...

Re: Cut holes in a plane with a texture

Re: Mirror Modifier Driving me crazy:@ help please

your problem is the origin-point. take a look here: blender-manual link . in short: select your mesh, enter edit-mode, select the face where the mirror should take place, hit shift-s -> cursor to selected. tab out of edit-mode, hit ctrl-alt-shift+c -> origin to 3d-cursor. THEN add the mirror-modifier.

Re: Copy animations to an existing armature

you may look here: http://www.blendernation.com/2011/04/25 ... ender-2-5/

anyway - importing bvh to an existing mesh/bonestructure can be a pain.

sorry, i meant keeks with the xcode-question. anyway - interesting to hear linux won't build out of the box in 2.6x, too. never tried building 2.6x under linux.

i tried compiling round about end of last year, started a topic about ppc-blender here.
it doesn't work out of the box.

anyway - i tried a few afternoons and after that quit trying because i thought my build-environment was broken.

which xcode do you use?

correct.
you for sure already noticed, but the new 314.21 nvidia works great with 2.66a and win8-64.
