Heya.

Just some little things here we came up with while playing with Fusion between the demos.
Nothing special, but maybe someone will find it useful...:-)

Like this little VolumeFog Experiment, also featuring CustomExtrusionSplines on the Text3D.

Cheers.

Eric.

... or this here, which shows just another way to create random (but techy) Particle Shapes.

This little comp-script has been written by Blazej Floch.

You can select a bunch of Loaders, run the script,
and the Loaders will play nicely in loop one after the other.

Quite handy for presentation purposes....:-)

Thanks, Blazej!

Awesome stuff! Pardon my ignorance but how is the script different from the Clip List?

Well, the ClipList is specific for just one Loader.

The script however allows to manually select any number of Loaders
which you then want to playback in Loop.

This makes it an advanced and flexible tool,
quite superior to ClipList in certain situations like presentations.

On the Tubicles.comp , each time I try to view the last node, VolumeFog, Fu7 64-bit 1450 crashes on me. I am able to view the Renderer node right before the VolumneFog node, however. Do I need to save out images and then view it? I see a Saver node, but it's not connected.

Uncheck OpenCL.

How can you uncheck OpenCL in Fusion? You mean switch OpenGL to Software renderer?

OpenCL and OpenGL are different things

in the "volume fog" node you have a check box "use OpenCL". you will find this checkbox in all tools that support OpenCL (= calculating on your graphics card)

Ah I tried turning of OpenCL under preferences, but it still crashed. Will try the checkbox on the node.

Well no wonder I don't have OpenCL checkbox when I have this in my console
OpenCL Could not find valid context: CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND

Btw how does Fusion utilize CUDA when the app obviously relies on OpenCL? There is no mention of CUDA anywhere through out the app nor there is any documentation that states what tools use CUDA either.

My understanding is that Fusion is accelerated through openCL, and does not CUDA...so you can use nvidia or amd. Check in your preferences under openCL and see if Fusion recognizes your graphics card.
There are only certain nodes that use the gpu...volume fog, vol mask are two of them. There are also some Fuses that use opencl also.
