Lighthouse – Flip Fluid Bender Simulation – Using Cuda w/Issues Found

Using Blender and FlipFluids Addon

This is still baking, so far 60Gb bake files and climbing at 334 out of 501 frames. Domain resolution used – 500 – ie High Quality.

Bake files grew from 55Mb [frame 1] to currently 277Mb [frame 333] !

Will update on the progress and final render.

and finally… after almost 2 days baking non stop…..

Below shows me trying to render one single frame and yet getting out of CUDA memory error.

I’m using a GTX1080 with 8Gb VRAM, on a i7 Quad core PC with 32Gb RAM

Switching to a CPU render and the results are below.

Time taken 1 hour for frame 348

Until l can find a quicker way to render each frame, by cuda which is usually faster especially since l have access to about 3000+ cuda cores collectively on my core workstation, l will give this project a rest for now.

update 9/28/2018

I tried command line blender rendering of frames 16, 348 with my 8gb gtx1080 / l  get the cuda error as the gpu ram used reached about 7gb out of the 8gb,

Currently rendering the first 200 frames as shown below.

 

Render SSRS 2008 Report from Website to Adobe PDF

This is a test project to see if l can successfully render to PDF from an asp.net website, using Report Control from a Visual Studio 2008 project.
First l created a simple sample table called MyContact from some files from the AdventureWorks database. Heres the code:

SELECT
    [ContactID]      ,[Title]      ,[FirstName]      ,[LastName]
      ,[EmailAddress]      ,[Phone]      ,[ModifiedDate]
      into MyContacts
  FROM [AdventureWorks].[Person].[Contact]
GO

If you wish to create the table directly, heres the code:

USE [AdventureWorks]
GO
/****** Object:  Table [dbo].[MyContacts]    Script Date: 01/15/2009 22:34:31 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[MyContacts](
 [ContactID] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
 [Title] [nvarchar](8) NULL,
 [FirstName] [dbo].[Name] NOT NULL,
 [LastName] [dbo].[Name] NOT NULL,
 [EmailAddress] [nvarchar](50) NULL,
 [Phone] [dbo].[Phone] NULL,
 [ModifiedDate] [datetime] NOT NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO

I’ll attach a link to a text file with data for populating this with over 19,000 rows, as well as a link to the entire source code.
Heres a link to the Report Webpage. (should be active soon)
Currently l’m trying to debug the error below:

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftFusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftFusion!EnableLog].

This seems to be a possible solution to this problem.
