Multithreading and RealFlow

Hi.

Looking to get a new machine for use with RealFlow. Dual hex-core with hyoperthreading. Does anyone know of any issues with capability/license issues regarding RealFlow and multi-threading. I have read one or two conflicting reports on forums, but maybe they are out of date.

Thanks,

T

As far as I know the license is per user not per core. Also I think you are confusing threads and cores. In fact you can have multiple treads on a single cpu. Keep in mind though that even though Real Flow does take advantage of multi-threading it does not always use the maximum number of processors or threads. As far as running scripts inside RealFlow, only one CPU or core is used. But this is a limitation of python not Real flow. At least that is my understanding of it. Hope that helps.

Actually Next Limit were one of the last holdouts to per core licenses.
I think they finally got *realistic* as of version 5 (now per user).
Thats probably where your conflicted info came from.

More info here.
Also you have a preference to control the number of cores used-what ever it sees there is what you have to use. If the multi-threading doesn't 'show-up' here than you know. Or just ask support.
