Hi, I have 2 PC's with both 4 core CPU's, can I combine them together to bake my fluid simulations faster because using only one 4 core CPU takes ages to bake ?
>>
do GPU sims in houdini
>>
>>593265
Houdini can't render 4k
>>
>>593264
Yes you can, its called distributed simulations, but i have no idea how to do it.

He >>593265 is also right. There is an OpenCL option somewhere in the fluid solver.

>>593269
It can, but not the free apprentice version.
>>
>>593296
Ah shit. I totally did not read the fucking headline and completely disregarded that image. I thought OP was asking about Houdini not Blender.
Anyways, you could simulate in Houdini and transfer the geo to Blender to render there even with the apprentice version.
I think current Blenders Fluid sim is not really useful for anything but a glass full of water and blood splatter.
Have you checked out the new Mantaflow fluid solver which is available as branch of Blender?
It should be faster and better (but also still buggy).

Houdini and Realflow are the tested and proven tools.
>>
>>593300
Is mantaflow faster in baking than the current fluid simulator ?
>>
>>593264
>right click taskbar in windows
>right click blender on your "processes" tab
>select "set priority"
>choose "above normal"
>click "ok"

if on a mac:
>get a windows pc
mac is trash at 3d.
>>
>>593333
>mac is trash at 3d.
No, you're just too stupid to use one. Typical Winfag. Google renice.

>>593264
Not easily for fluid sims because each frame is dependent on the previous one. But you can try increasing the number of simulation threads in the fluid domain properties. Depending on how threading is implemented, you can sometimes get pretty significant performance improvements by increasing the thread count beyond the number of logical cores on your system (blender's default). I haven't' tried it with the fluid sim, but I've been able to get ~20% faster render times with Cycles by going to 2x-3x the number of logical cores.

I wonder how much rendering farms charge

But he is right, mac is trash.
Apple has become an glorified gadget manufacturer and has left the professional hardware segment long time ago.

There is only one reason left why people stick with macs, and that is because they love the brand and like to virtue signalling how much better they are because they use the brand.
>>
>>593400
If you're going to bother with Mac, why not just go full linux?
Are there any exclusives that mac can run that linux can't?
>>
>>593457
Sorry, what I meant was, are there any good exclusives that don't run on either linux or windows?
I feel like using Linux for everything you can and then going with windows for the shitty devs that won't port shit over is the best way to work.
Are there any programs that there are no linux/windows alternatives to?
>>
>>593458
Not in the 3D field.
Its either on Windows or on Win and Linux.
A dual boot gives you access to everything important.
C4d, Adobe stuff and Z-brush are the tools one might miss on Linux, the high level 3d stuff and compositing software are all available.
>>
>>593497
Linux-only is a possibility if you are a specialist using only a few pieces of software. For example, if you are an animator and work exclusively in Maya, or you are a VFX specialist using Houdini and Nuke. For CG generalists it's hard to go without Photoshop in day to day work.
>>
>>593457
Photoshop is the major one.
>>
>>593531
goatse
>>
>>593529
I kinda disagree with your last sentence. I do all my texturing in Substance or Mari. Mari is essentially a 3d photoshop.
I can totally go without PS. For painting i actually prefer Krita.
The lack of Z-brush is what really irks me.
>>
>>593535
Sure. For a generalist you're likely to find it painful to be without PS, or you're likely to find it painful to be without ZBrush. Point is that if you're "full stack" it's harder to use Linux.
>>
>>593550
I dream about a Threadripper with 2 GPU's and Windows running in a VM with GPU pass-through and direct access to the hardware (SATA, USB-controller) booting directly from a dedicated SSD.
That way you could run all Windows program in your Linux system while containing that NSA-botnet.
>>
>>593529
>>593531
>Photoshop
Gross. Why not use something that was designed to paint directly on the models, rather than having the support slapped on?
>>

>renice
linux is worse than mac.
quit fagging around and get a real computer that runs a real os.
>>
>>593717
>Not using TempleOS
Why live?
>>
>>593717
>linux is worse than mac.
It isn't you retard. Have fun in your walled garden and never stop sucking that apple flavored corporate dick in your mouth.
>>
>>593717
Are you retard mac fanboy?, o wait, why even wondering you that?, surely you are, as long as you're a user of Apple shit or Winfag.
