Building a new computer? Upgrading hardware? This is the place for all computer hardware and technical discussions.
Hi everyone! We've received some great feedback for the new beta since launching it, so thank you for that! I just wanted to point out that we've got a dedicated space for submitting any ideas/bugs that you might encounter along the way.
If you are experiencing video playback issues, you can...
Hey people at DT,
Can anyone please tell me what would be a good mouse to use for 3D work? I looked around the web but cannot really find the answer. Someone I know (very cool 3D person from Canada) suggested to me to use a tablet for everything, instead of mouse. What do you think?
Was thinking about getting back into some 3ds max even after my disappointing rip off experience at Ferris State,
But I would want a machine that renders....fast.... As in I don't want to sit around waiting for materials to render out.
I want it now! LOL
Hi I'm looking for a computer for VFX, I will mostly use Dynamics in Maya. I'm currently using a Macbook Pro 2012 but it does not well when rendering. So this time I will buy a desktop, probably windows.
I know video card and graphic card is important, and so much more to think about. Do you...
Next year I start my 3D animation and VFX course, so I was just wondering what's the best computer for that. Mac or PC?
Also, what are the best specifications/ingredients for this good machine?
Currently getting this message when i click on every video.
Is there a server problem or can this be related to my computer?
OK so do you know that "redraw" issue where you resize a window and it leaves a trail of the window "edge"
So this is happening with maya split panel views. For example in the standard maya quad view it happens when I drag the horizontal divider that separates the two top views from the two...
I searched for answer but with no success.
We can't upload .mel attachments? I tried and it said invalid.
So I uploaded as a .txt and it worked.
I went over to my friends house earlier and she was watching the new MEL tutorials. She was on lesson eight and she asked me how did Delano know all the commands and what flags to use?
I said "Probably by looking thru the command reference in the documentation."
She said "How do I get to...

Hey fellow CGIers,
I have recently decided to start a render-farm, both for my own use and as a business. I want to build one that I can slowly scale up as I get money over time, as getting enough money to buy say even 20 machines up front would prove too difficult. My plan was to purchase a...
I'm looking at the purchase of a new system as a CG workstation. I have a budget of around $5500 to work with for this system.
I've considered building it myself (I've built several systems myself), but presently, I'm leaning heavily towards a custom built unit from Velocity Micro for several...
Hey there! I'm in school for 3D animation, and I've been using desktops for mostly everything. I have an alright desktop for most of my work, but I'm going to be travelling a fair bit in the near future and would like a secondary animation/hobby machine, a laptop, that I can do work on. As it is a...
I have an issue with the cry engine sdk version 3.54 and 3.40. I thought the installation files may be corrupted, but I have redownloaded the file from the website several times. I have tried the latest version and the version used in the tutorials. The issue is when you test the map out in the...

I just wanted to say thanks for bringing back the offline mode as i work away from home regularly and don't have a reliable connection when i am away or even sometimes at home during certain periods. :jump
Hopefully this proves well and people don't steal the content to give away for free as...
Not sure if i'm posting this in the right place or not, but I would like to see the full screen option of the new video player actually take up the full screen like it used to.
