Hey,

have you tried turning on the "Stall GPU" option on your statistics? On our machines they are taking a fair amount of performance - about 5-15% of the GPU.

What exactly happens when you try to run a VPR?

Yes Stall GPU is one way..

It would be great to have a rough idea about your system specs btw, would you be so nice to post your system specifications as well?

Sometimes the GPU's got stepped down to safe energy, therefore it looks like it is using 60% of performance, but the truth is that the GPU is running at a maximum performance of 50% and from these 50% its just using 60% of GPU power ;) xD

Sounds strange but this is where people always get confused...

all the best and regArts

Hey,

right, sorry: The Beta Key is a Designer only key, so you are indeed not able to start the runtime.

What graphic card model do you use? Please enable the "Stall GPU" option in the performance statistics and check if the performance usage is still as high as on your screenshot. If it is an nVidia card that you use, Dennis' guess might be right as well. Lastly, do you encounter framedrops or is it just the bars in the performance monitor?

Thanks a lot for providing us all the information!

Hi,

using the Particle system with mesh renderer (not sprites): how do I apply a custom rotation to the particles? I can assign any value to sprite rotation or to position. But I don't see a channel for rotation. I can set a rotation in the mesh renderer - however that one is applied to all particles. Now imagin a grid of cubes. I'd like to use a texture to manipulate the particles' rotation. Am I missing something or is that channel really just missing?

Thanks,
rou

Hey Rou!

Yes, the 3D Rotation Attribute is just missing. A ticket already exists for that but it will most likely not be implemented in the initial release of Ventuz 6.

Thanks for the answer - athough it's very unfortunate. I wanted to use V6 for a project but with that feature missing I'm staying with V5 and my own shaders.

cheers,
rou

you're not the only one. It was literally the first thing I tried with the particle system :cry:
