Re: Twilight has to have SU force quit and re-start to work

Not as yet, I do have a win 10 workstation I've still got to try. What's strange is that both another workstation and a business laptop do the same thing. Happens in an empty model as well as populated ones.

Re: Twilight has to have SU force quit and re-start to work

Re: Output difference between old and clean install

Ahhhh, quick update, you were quite right Fletch, could have sworn I had the pro version installed on the laptop, but no! It might be an idea, but how about a watermark or something similar for the free/cheap version? OK, a watermark might be unfair, but something similar - otherwise some (like me!)...

Re: Output difference between old and clean install

Ha! Well in sure I had v2 on the older one, really sure! I'll have a look at the old one before it's decommissioned...I. e., given to my old folks!

Thanks for the link though, I'll have a read now, although I do recall skipping over it recently.

Cheers! Chris

Re: V2 How Fast Are You - Official Twilight Scene - Bauhaus Lamp

Nice comparison! Shows that increasing thread count by factor of three does not necessarily reduce render times proportionately, but it definitely gives much quicker render times. :^: Glad you like! I do have an 8 thread laptop, I might give that a go too - as an in-betweenie with a very similar CP...
