I just downloaded the free standalone 3Delight and am trying to render a scene, but I don’t think anything’s happening. There doesn’t seem to be an actual “application” just a .dylib file. I’ve tried following the instructions in the user manual, and in the thread from the old site, but all I get in the “Terminal—bash” window is “Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$. No render window, nothing.

I did a standard install. Am I missing something? Is it rendering? What’s the deal? How do I use this? I’m on a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Mini running OSX Snow Leopard.

On the Mac the use of 3Delight is a bit “unconventional.”  First, you will need to output your scene to .rib.  You do this via the “Advanced Render Settings” tab.  You will need to use the Command Line (or Terminal) in order to use the 3Delight renderer.  It cannot be done via the GUI.

You will need to “cd” to the location that you output the .rib file.  Once there you will execute the “renderdl” command to actually start the renderer.  There are several options that can be set via command line flags that you may or may not need to use depending of what you desire to do.

Kendall

I made the RIB file and used the terminal. The above Terminal—Bash window is the only thing that comes up.

I’m not sure what you mean by ““cd” to the location” though.

You will need to note the path that you used to save the rib file.  Once your terminal is up you will type something like:

cd < path you used for the .rib > <enter>
renderdl -q -id <filename>.rib { this is if you want to watch the render proceed.  slower than not }
or
renderdl -q <filename>.rib { this will not show a window }

when the command completes, you will have a file called “render.tiff” that contains your image.

Kendall

OK, Tried that. and these are what I get:

when trying the cd, I get: Last login: Wed Oct 24 18:21:26 on ttys000
cd</Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB files/First Trick or Treat_collected/First Trick or Treat.rib> ; exit;
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ cd</Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB files/First Trick or Treat_collected/First Trick or Treat.rib> ; exit;
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `;’
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$

when running the Renderdl, I get:
Last login: Wed Oct 24 18:21:26 on ttys000
cd</Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB files/First Trick or Treat_collected/First Trick or Treat.rib> ; exit;
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ cd</Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB files/First Trick or Treat_collected/First Trick or Treat.rib> ; exit;
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `;’
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$

The “<” and “>” are not used.  They were there to delimit where you put variable information as opposed to verbatim information.

Also, spaces will need to be prefaced by a backslash “\”.  So here would be “correct” versions of your commands:

cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB\ files/
renderdl -q -id First\ Trick\ or\ Treat.rib

Kendall

OK, I retried and it seems to be working, though wth a lot of “ERROR” messages coming up, but the path doesn’t seem to be using the file inside of the First Trick or Treat_Collected folder, which contains all of the .tdl files.

Here’s what I got when I did the “pwd” command:

Last login: Wed Oct 24 18:59:34 on ttys000
cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB\ files/
pwd ; exit;
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB\ files/
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:RIB files TrampGraphics$ pwd ; exit;
/Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB files
logout

[Process completed]

 

OK. Change the “cd” to be the following:

cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB\ files/First\ Trick\ or\ Treat_collected
renderdl -q -id First\ Trick\ or\ Treat.rib

forget that the “exit” command exists.  If you need to close the shell use ctrl-d.  BTW, spaces are evil.

Kendall

OK, when I try that, this is what I get: Last login: Wed Oct 24 19:46:11 on ttys000
cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB\ files/First\ Trick\ or\ Treat_collected
renderdl -q -id First\ Trick\ or\ Treat.rib ; exit;
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB\ files/First\ Trick\ or\ Treat_collected
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:First Trick or Treat_collected TrampGraphics$ renderdl -q -id First\ Trick\ or\ Treat.rib ; exit;
logout

[Process completed]

And for the record, I never hit a button marked “exit”. I hit the “Run” button.

There should be a rib file inside the collected folder, with the textures and compiled shaders…that is the one that needs to be run If it’s not, you are one level too high…make sure that you are ‘inside’ the collected folder before running renderdl.

Never mind the above…I finally was able to read through the path…those spaces are EVIL…very, very evil.

It is quite possible, that because of them, what it written in the RIB is worthless, because the search for shaders and textures is stopping at the RIB Files directory…or the first space.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

Well, I saved a new RIB file and folder, replacing the spaces with dashes (-) and still no go.

Sorry, got called away.

All you need is to press “return” or “enter” on your keyboard after each command.  The “Exit” that is appended by the “run” button will clear out the environment.

Did you get any errors?  Also, from just the command line type “renderdl -id -test” followed by the “return” key.  What happens?  Do you get invaded?

Well, here’s the thing. For me to use the “terminal” and make “commands” I have to go to the “Shell”>New Command, which opens a Command window, I type in the info and have to either hit “Run” (hitting the Return key is the same thing) or “Cancel”, which cancels the operation. hitting Run (or Return) then opens a new Terminal Shell to run the operation and then logs out saying Process Completed. And it automatically puts the “exit” before “Logout”  in the process.

I just did the renderdl -id -test, and yes, I got “invaded”. Cute.

OK.  Your renderer is installed correctly.  Try using the terminal in Applications->Utilities->Terminal instead.  A screenshot from my Mac is attached.

Still no go. This is what I get:
Last login: Wed Oct 24 23:32:30 on ttys000
cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected renderdl -q -id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib ; exit;
Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected renderdl -q -id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib ; exit;
logout

[Process completed]

I still have to open a new Command window each time.

It’s the “exit” command that causes the command window to close.  Once using the Applications->Utilities->Terminal only use “return” or “enter” to submit your commands.

cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected “return”
renderdl -q -id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib “return”

At this point you’ll either get an error in your window, or a render window will appear showing the progress of your render.

Ok…

Change this line…

cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected renderdl --id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib ; exit; 

to read

cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected

(then hit return)

That should get you to another line in the terminal.

On that new line enter…

renderdl --id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib 

(hit return)

I liked your explanation better.  You were clearer than I am.

That;‘s exactly what I’m doing though. There is no “exit” button. I hit “return” which is the same as clicking the “Run” button. and it automatically closes the Command window, opens a new terminal box with the “exit” in the text:

Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected
renderdl -q -id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib ; exit;
-bash: cd: /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected
renderdl: No such file or directory
logout

Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:First-Trick-or-Treat_collected TrampGraphics$ renderdl -q -id First-Trick-or-Treat.rib ; exit;

[Process completed]

I never make an “exit” command. I simply hit the Return key or Run button. Both do the same thing.  They close the Command window, open the Terminal—80x24 window with a “Exit” after the command. IF I try to run the two commands separately, the second command gives me a “System Error: No such file or Directory” error message.

If I try to enter the text directly into a terminal box, I get this:

on a command line, type “which renderdl” and post the results.  The bolded text above seems to indicate that your 3Delight is not in your PATH

Michael-Tramperts-Mac-mini:~ TrampGraphics$ which renderdl ; exit;
/Applications/Graphics/3Delight-10.0.50/bin/renderdl
logout

[Process completed]

And, like I said, I don’t have any “command lines” I can only open up command windows which automatically close when I hit Return, opening a new Terminal window.

Where is this (in bold above) coming from?

Please try these in order and post the results (or send them to me via PM if you’d rather not post them).  This is squirrelly to the extreme.

cd /Users/TrampGraphics/Desktop/RIB-files/First-Trick-or-Treat_collected “return”
ls “return”
renderdl -h “return”
