You probably had 2.6 before streaming.

You need to enable OOPR.exe trough your firewalls and anti-viruses. Something is blocking it.

Hi Guys,

I installed v2,8 Windows XP 2Gb ram, and SU podium V2.8 turns to be very slow. Its checks out the internet? I installed it after a system restore point, I restored my computer to go back to the older version and that doesn´t seem to work either. I still have V2.8 installed ;-( Any sugestions?

Chris.

What do you mean by very slow. The rendering process in the OOPR? The export phase?

There should be no difference with previous versions. What version had you before 2.8?

Does other programs seams to be slower?

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure Podium doesn't check the internet.

You need to tell us which phase of rendering is slow. And by comparison with what?

You also need to tell us a little about the size and complexity of the model, and whether you have similar problems with other models.

Your machine is low-spec. It's never going to excel at rendering. It's 32 bit, and that 2Gb of RAM is being shared with Windows, some is taken by shadowing video RAM, and even if you have only a single program - SketchUp, running in the foreground, Podium can only use the amount of RAM you have left.

If you are rendering a fairly complex scene, you'll struggle. If you want to render anything other that simple models and scenes, you need better hardware and a 64 bit operating system.

Hi again,

Thanks for your quick response, well slow in terms of processing scene, I will attach a file what is 13.9 Mb. I used V2.5 and the processing scene (reading) took 90 min and rendering 20 min. Same image in V2.8 with caustics and Geo activated, reading proces, more then 5 hours. I will attach two other images of a church interior where V2.5 did do 4 and a half hours reading and the file is 61.3 Mb ! I got used about my machine with V2.5, but I think V2.8 needs better hardware.

Will there be a contest to win a new machine with great specs? - let us know!

Nope, hardware specs are unchanged. It shouldn't be any different with any version of Podium.

You just have a complex file and crap hardware
That's really under specced for anything other than fairly simple scenes. You can still get some really impressive renders, but you do need to optimise your scenes to maximise performance. how many faces are on those curved columns? Any more than 12 will kill your render time, and you won't notice the difference unless you have a camera position that is very close to the curves.

It's not the model size that's important, but number of polygons. The first thing to note is that on the interior you have lots of complex, curved surfaces. Then you are using the QMC preset, which is the slowest.

If your columns are componentised, you will have a scene which is even more complex than the 63mb file size would indicate.

Why are you using caustics? 99% of scenes don't need this. All it will do is increase render time.

Render looks good though.

It's unlikely we would have a render contest with a new machine as a prize! Most users would most likely already have more powerful machines than one we would offer.

There is a lot of scope to improve speed even given your modest hardware. Only use as little detail as you can get away with, unless you have good hardware.

Your exterior scene has awful trees. The render isn't bad, but these things are killing it. Try using some different ones and some 3d cars.

Come on, help us out at least a bit - which Podium version, what OS, and what version?
