nicoladanese Posted May 22, 2019 Share Posted May 22, 2019 Hey! I'm in a situation where I have cached a huge amount of points on disk and I want to render those points. What I do in the scene is reading the bgeo.sc caches, merge them all together, trail the points to calculate velocity, apply a pscale, assign a shader and render. If I run it on the farm with IFDs it takes a lot of time to generate the IFDs for render, and I'm trying to reduce the time of this task. I noticed that the IFD itself is tiny, the big part is that under the IFD folder there's a storage folder where basically I have a huge bgeo.sc file per frame which I suppose is the geometry I'm about to render. I wonder if all of this is not redundant since all those operation can be done at rendertime I suppose...I tried to set the file sop in "packed disk primitive" but it seems I cannot apply pscale after that, all the points render at pscale 1...
