12 Procreate Brushes: Stitches and Sequins

Saturday, 18th May 2019

Hi Michelle, sadly I don’t have the latest version of Procreate for the iPad, so I’m not sure what may have changed over the years. I can open these brushes fine on Procreate Pocket for iPhone though, so that’s good news. Try that, perhaps once in Procreate Pocket, you can find a way to export them to your iPad?

These are great and I’ve been looking for something like this but the files won’t open on my iPad Pro. It gives the error of “ this file is not supported” 😔

About that Denoiser in DAZ Studio 4.11

Wednesday, 15th May 2019

Great article on the new denoiser in Daz Studio and the comparison images were very helpful. Hopefully, DS 4.11 will come out of beta soon!

My GOLDEN HALF – a Camera Review

Sunday, 12th May 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve handled my Golden Half, but from what I remember the film transport and shutter are not connected. You can press the shutter as many times as you like, which creates an exposure every time you click. So for two exposures, wins the film, the press the shutter twice (or more time). Hope this helps!

hi, do you turn the knob until it stops each time you press the shutter? or you press the shutter 2 times for double frames and then turn the knob? Thank you

Oh man, thank you so much for checking out my books. Flicker World is a fun book so hopefully you will like it. I think it has a good combination humor, action, and nerdiness. Then again, I am biased so... At any rate, good luck with the card. I'm glad I was helpful to you since your tutorials were definitely helpful to me. Hopefully we can chat again some time.

😂 That's good to hear! It's the AMP edition: https://www.zotac.com/us/product/graphics_card/zotac-gaming-geforce-rtx-2080-amp When compared to the twin-fan version, it has a slightly higher clock speed, uses 10W more power and has nice LED lights. Think I'll get exactly this card, if it fits into my case. The added benefit is that I can spread payments with Amazon over 5 months, it won't let me do that with the twin-fan version (too cheap I guess). How exciting! BTW, I've just read the first chapter of Flicker World - I can't wait to read more!

Mine is actually a ZOTAC as well. ZT-T20800D-10P. This version has three fans. It is surprisingly quiet and has yet to melt into a puddle, which is nice. There was no rational in choosing this card, however. It was simply the one that was bundled with my PC since I took the lazy way out and bought a pre-configured system.

Oh wow - how nice is that? Thank you for tuning in! Which version of the card did you get? There are so many manufacturers and designs to choose from. I'm thinking of getting the cheapest ZOTAC card with twin fans. My current GTX 970 is a ZOTAC, same design, works fine (and was the cheapest in 2016). That's true about the memory, the whole scene needs to fit into the GPU RAM. 11GB is huge, but really I've never (knowingly) approached the limits of my 4GB card. I'm really looking forward to playing with it :-)

No problem Jay. I just watched your latest Subnautica video and I noticed you were interested in this card so I figured I would give it a whirl for you. It is interesting that the render times aren't too far off compared to the "ti" version. The only downside is that it is "only" 8GB instead of 11GB, I believe, so you could render more complex scenes with the ti version.

What a great result indeed, I'm thinking of getting this card myself actually. When compared to the RTX 2080 Ti, it looks like the CUDA performance under DAZ Studio isn't actually that far off. Thank you so much for sharing!

I’m so sorry Sarreq, I can’t remember how many pins it had, nor do I know what the pitch of a cable is.

Am I right in my guess, that the keyboard ribbon is 18pins @ 100mil pitch?

About that Denoiser in DAZ Studio 4.11

Wednesday, 10th April 2019

Hi Debs, that is an excellent question actually! DAZ don't do much to promote this on their front page. The Beta is essentially a free product you have to "buy" (or rather add to your shopping cart and then check out without paying). Once it's on your account, you'll be able to search for "DAZ Studio" in Install Manager, and then you'll be able to install it on your system side-by-side with the regular release version. Here's a direct link on the DAZ Store: https://www.daz3d.com/daz-studio-beta. Hope this helps!

Thankyou, this sounds very handy. Excuse my stupidity but how does one get 4.11. I can't find the download link, despite googling.

Thanks Bartosz, could you let me know what graphics card you're using? Without it, your render time does not have a context 😂

How to fix Brush Lag in Photoshop CC

Sunday, 7th April 2019

I'm afraid the Adobe Elements apps are not related to the "big" ones, other than by name. They're based on different code and hence tips for Photoshop cannot be replicated in Photoshop Elements. Sorry!

That may work for the full bown Photoshop program. But what about Photoshop Elements 15? There's no advanced tab to go to.

It's funny that the CPU and GPU together don't make more of a difference, isn't it? I'm observing the same on my system: CPU and GPU are on par when in comes to render speed (more or less), but both of them combined don't seem to cut render speed in half, they just cause an incremental increase. Thanks for sharing!
