Hi guys,

I was wandering if anybody has checked out how PFlow performs in 64bit? Is it faster, and how much?

Thanks ;)

as i know, no changes were made for PFlow in max9 64bits :sad:

Yeah, but maybe max is generally faster and it shows in PF? I don't know, that's why am asking :D

Nope, 64bit Max is not faster, but has access to much more memory and can handle a lot more particles (and polygons in general) without running out of memory. So you cannot get the job done faster, but you can get the job done in cases where 32bit would not be able to...

And ain't that true for particles especially :)

Thanks a lot Bobo, and greetings from Bulgaria!
