Default Flipbook temp files

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Every time I do a flipbook it takes about 4GB of space on my HD. I have searched the whole C drive looking for those heavy file/s. I looked at the TEMP folder but that folder is very light.  I looked at my C drive for latest modified files and no trace of any large files being created but I see the HD space going lower.

 

I've tried restarting houdini and my machine hoping it was some sort of temporary cache but to no success.

 

Can someone help ?

 

thanks,

Fred

Flipbooking the 3D viewport to mplay no longer writes files to disk, it uses a direct network connection. So I'm really not sure why you'd be losing such a large chunk of disk space every time.

 

When flipbooking, are you rendering with Mantra or OpenGL?

Open GL I left everything default.

 

On the render flip book settings window it says memory usage: 4351 images at 1194x868 (16.7 GB).

This is now solved. It was not related to mplay but instead to temporary regtrans-ms files being created every hour because of a Ndvia 3d vision driver. Got back 72 gbs....

 

thanks for you help
