    Does anyone know if Nvidia Kepler GPU's are bad at CUDA rendering in Cycles?

    I've heard that they have poor GPGPU performance.
    I know this is really late to answer but I went a few pages back and noticed your comment.

    Yeah Kepler GPU's are quite crap at computing because Nvidia has capped it.
    It's probably to be able to sell the same cards uncapped for 3 times as much for "pro's". A bit like the quadro bullshit.

    That's why I told (username) Nvidia that he's better off with the 580. And domino should do a bit more research before disagreeing.

    Is a 43200x21600 texture overkill? I think not

    Depends on what type of object it is, and how close the camera would be, as well as how much the resolution would be.

    If you're making a mousepad that's gonna stay in a corner in a 1920x1080 render, it would be waste, and you could get a excellent result with a 1024x1024 resolution texture.

    I make all my stuff so that it will look good at very close up :0 but it's for the earth so 43200x21600 is kind of small for close ups of earth.

    You could just save it as a PSD, 3Ds max can read PSD's

    I know that Photoshop has limits to how big it can save images on regular formats.

    I actually managed to break the scroll on a MX518 because of the constant torture it had to endure when moving the camera around in 3ds Max's viewport.

    Killed two mice because of that already.

    4th for me so far, I just have resorted to buying the cheapy 15 dollar mice and dealing with it.

    Did some color correction and made the AO better and rerendered. I guess this will have to do.





    Edit:

    If you guys have some critique or suggestions I'd be glad to hear them before I turn this in.

    That's nothing, I'd need a 432,000x216,000 texture to get realistic shots from low earth orbit. Or a dozen 43200x21600 masks and a bunch of noise/speckle/etc maps.

    NASA wants their computer back.

    No really, they need it for those realistic shots from low earth orbit.

    Umm...that's not how it's done. If you have a zoom from outer space into a specific area on earth for example doesn't mean you should texture the whole thing with ridiculously large textures. The textures should change during the zoom and the switches hidden by having them look similar enough but be higher detailed and covering a smaller area.

    Search for earth zoom on videocopilot.

    Uploading a passworded version of the film for you guys, I'll be keeping it within this thread though... but you can share it with mates or whatever if you choose. I'll post the link up tomorrow, I'd love to see what you think.

    Unfortunately, I think it's actually a lot more impressive in the context of the degree show. We've won awards already, and received 3 job offers, which nobody else had. But when you compare it to the plethora of incredible graduate animations online I think it pales in comparison. I'm still super proud of what we achieved though :D

    I'll still share it though, you guys were really supportive of all my work so it's only fair you get to see the final product. Stay tuned ;)

    Edited:

    Also, one of said job offers is from Axis Animation, who done the reversed Dead Island trailer... think I'm gonna go for that one.

    not really. unless you can explain what you're doing in more detail. everything youve posted recently is so vague that nobody can get an idea of your project. sure there just might be a reason but youre not making it clear
