    I love it! That's one of my favorite big cats.

    And the promos look great! I know it's a predator but it looks so fluffy, I want to cuddle it laugh

    i kind of like your snow shader, any possibility of sharing that?

     

    Also, how did you do this snowy fur btw:

    The snow in that image is Blender, so no compliant snow shader for DS.

    That's Photoshop...

    I am having issues getting it to dforce simulate the hair. 

    I have restarted a couple times. 

    I have tried the Iray dForce version as well as the plain Snow Leopard and added the hair. 

    Error:

    2020-06-24 11:56:55.603 WARNING: ..\..\..\src\dzdynamicsengine.cpp(2691): ERROR: clCreateBuffer (-61)

    2020-06-24 11:56:55.847 Total Simulation Time: 2.99 seconds

    It does render, it just looks like someone static'ed his hair.

    Any thoughts?

    After two times trying to do an Iray Catlyzer render of the Snow Leopard and a UltraScenery, Daz stuck on the 4th iteration of the fur building or something. I just checked my NVidia and found a new update was released today, so it is downloading. But, can the cat and UltraScenery work together?

    Additional information: After updating the Nvidia update still didn't work. Checked the promo sheet, said I needed version 1.9, but I couldn't find any indication of that version, so opened DIM, uninstalled and reinstalled. Checked and my plug-in still shows okay in the Help menu. Reloaded the file, closed off the environment completely and just tried to render the cat. And stuck at the same place.

    'Snow Leopard: inspecting shave group #4'

    I am attaching a snip.

    I have also tried the release and the Beta version of Daz Studio 4.12. 
    Am I just impatient or am I doing something wrong?

    I got the lions at the same time as the Snow Leopard.

    Leo the Lion and Friend.

    It does render, it just looks like someone static'ed his hair.

    Any thoughts?  

    Hello. That could happen for a number of reason (BTW, check if your nvidia drivers are updated). To fix it try this:
    - select the Snow Leopard
    - select the related surfaces
    - apply the dforce modifier hair

    See attached image for details

    At this point the simulation should run correctly.

    'Snow Leopard: inspecting shave group #4'

    I am attaching a snip.

    I have also tried the release and the Beta version of Daz Studio 4.12. 
    Am I just impatient or am I doing something wrong?

    Running in "Safe Mode" might indeed take a long time in case of complex scenes. Can you try disabling "Safe mode" and see if the render goes through? It should be really much faster that way.

    Hi, Alessandro - is the "Required Products" list correct - it says you (obviously) need the Felidae by AM Lion but is the Lion dForce Add-On really necessary?

    No, just the Lion (so the Lion dForce add-on is NOT necessary). Snow Leopard (as also Kimbo and the Smilodon), they have dForce presets included.

    Great, thank you!

    After two times trying to do an Iray Catlyzer render of the Snow Leopard and a UltraScenery, Daz stuck on the 4th iteration of the fur building or something. I just checked my NVidia and found a new update was released today, so it is downloading. But, can the cat and UltraScenery work together?

    Thanks for the reply. I loaded the scene up and without 'Safe Mode' on, started the catalyzer, and Daz Studio crashed. LOL

    Mmhhhh ok. Can you check if DS interface settings are like the ones attached, and eventually try again (after restarting DS). Alternatively, try using the Snow Leopard dForce version, that should work probably better in your case.

    @Alessandro Mastronardi

    Was it you who posted some settings a few years ago for DAZ Studio that sorted out Catalyzer crashing? It was in Studio Edit/Preferences/Interface. I used them and it stopped the crashing but I also use Safe Mode :)

    That may do it. I had Backface Lighting in the middle (?) and Texture Resources in the middle. Moved them to match your screen shot, brought up the Beta (the catalyzer has disappeared from the release version since this morning!). After the scene loaded, made sure it was on Mitchell then put on Safe Mode, and it is currently on 'shave group # 4'. I have to leave for 15 minutes, so letting it run is fine.

    Well back home, still inspecting shave group #4. 

  • memcneil70memcneil70 Posts: 1,198

    It took an hour and finally it started the render! We are cooking. Thank you so much. I will post the kitty when he is done.

    The Lion and Add-ons still remain in separate folder trees.

    The lion is in Animals/AM/Felidae

    The add-ons are in Animals/AM/Felidae by AM

    so they are not nested together.  I put in a ticket quite awhile ago, but no update has come through.

    I am having issues getting it to dforce simulate the hair. 

    I have restarted a couple times. 

    I have tried the Iray dForce version as well as the plain Snow Leopard and added the hair. 

    Error:

    2020-06-24 11:56:55.603 WARNING: ..\..\..\src\dzdynamicsengine.cpp(2691): ERROR: clCreateBuffer (-61)

    2020-06-24 11:56:55.847 Total Simulation Time: 2.99 seconds

    It does render, it just looks like someone static'ed his hair.

    Any thoughts?  

    Hello. That could happen for a number of reason (BTW, check if your nvidia drivers are updated). To fix it try this:
    - select the Snow Leopard
    - select the related surfaces
    - apply the dforce modifier hair

    See attached image for details

    At this point the simulation should run correctly.

     

    Mines giving the same error.  Drivers up to date, I tried in both the beta and current release.  I do not have the dforce modifier hair!?

  • gitika1gitika1 Posts: 704

    Never had DS crash with dforce hair before.  I am not able to use the Snow Leopard. (Only tried using the basic HDRI that DS loads with)  Tried three times and DS closed down each time. 

     

    Here are the lines from the last attempt.
