I am testing out a new machine and gave it a file with a big pflow simulation in it...when I try to render it in MR with all ambient occlusion, final gather, etc. Everything seems to go fine but the processing of the pflow object. It seems to only hit one processor.

Here is a pic.

Is this normal or have I screwd up my settings somehow?

This is normal, PFlow is not multi-threaded yet.

Awesome. Thank you for putting that to rest for me.

hi bobo.
you know when it will support multi-threading?
thanks

That is a question for Oleg. I know he was investigating it in the past, and Box #2 might have made some progress in that direction (since it is possible to use both hardware and software PhysX in parallel I am told).

Nice Krakatoa tests on vimeo, btw! Keep up the great work.
OT: Krakatoa v1.5.1 was released to public an hour ago. :)

tests with the new krakatoa.. but.... i hate watermarks... so maybe.. ahhmmm. you can arrange for me somthing.. :drool: (of course just for playing..)

thanks..

Working on it. No ETA yet, sorry.

Thanks,

is there any particle engine that can take advantage of the Quadro FX 5800 GPU's ?
or it only gives me a better Anti-aliasing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-aliasing)in the viewport..!:cry:

I would assume that PFlow Box #2 would run PhysX quite well on that GPU, but of course I am not a specialist. Looking at Wikipedia, it supports CUDA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CUDA#Supported_GPUs).
