Re: Ps3 controller for maya 2010 craft studio 10.1.2

Hi Getsome, First you need to do is to check if the gamepad is compatible. For Windows, the gamepad needs to be DirectInput-compatible in order to work in CDS. However on MAC it's a bit more vague. Your gamepad needs to be supported by SDL to function with CDS, but there is no way of telling if it i...

Re: Landing an aircraft

Hi, Unfortunately, the airplane is not able to interact with the ground, and therefore cannot land. My suggestion is that you use CDS to animate the approach, and have the landing being made by normal keyframing. This is something we may develop support for in the future. However, crashing is not so...

Re: slow motion without slow-motion

Hi, Do you get the same result if just running with one 4-wheeler or a simple camera? (disable all the rest). I suspect you simply have a performance problem. Although we try optimize the software for realtime usage, there is a limit to what it can handle. I think you simply have too many tools bein...

Re: Out of memory crash

I suspect it is a memory problem. Even though it displays available memory, the memory may be fragmented and the software is having trouble allocating the sufficient memory size it needs. Basically, try limit the memory usage in the scene and try free up as much memory you can outside the host progr...

Re: move simulation (frames)?

Hi, Unfortunately, you cannot move the simulation time. Either finish the recording, unplug and then move the keys. Otherwise i would simply recommend you to make the recording again, this time on the correct timeframe. Unless you have a very complicated recording, it usually doesn't take too much t...

Re: Tracks for Crawler Extended

Hi Rex, This is usually caused by too much tension on the tracks. Make sure the tracks have free play between support wheels (they must not intersect anywhere at start) Also, make sure you have sufficient space between the ground wheels and the ground for room for the tracks. If you base the crawler...

Re: simulation based on real data?

There are several car simulation programs available on the market today, but none of them are even near a realtime solution. To make a perfect simulation of the movement of a car you would require several days of calculating before you can even see a result. There is always a tradeoff you have to do...
