  1. Also keep in mind that if you go with more than 2 Nvidia cards that Octane requires additional licenses beyond 2. Redshift will as many as you have with no extra licensing. And I'm not sure about Cycles.
  2. @Vizn - thank you sir, that is it. I did change this at the beginning, but it didn't stay. I guess when you change Iteration to Grid Array it resets this to per step. Once I set it, it matched up perfectly. @Cerbera - the default size seems to be different, but I had set both to 200 and it didn't make a difference. However, once the mode was set correctly, I noticed the default size in R21 was set to 400, 0, 400, which I found to be a strange default. Anyway, thanks for your help.
  3. I probably should have mentioned that the set up starts by making the sphere 5 cm. So the sphere is the same size in both R20 and R21. Yet the only way to get the spheres tightly together (pic) in R21 is reduce the size of the cloner from 200 to 20, which isn't necessary when using R20. R20 the size can remain at 200
  4. I was doing this tutorial https://www.cineversity.com/vidplaytut/creating_audio_visuals_using_the_mograph_sound_and_shader_effectors At the 1:05 mark you can see the grid array with the spheres all bunched together. If I use R20, I get exactly the same thing shown. However, if I use R21 with the same settings the spheres aren't nearly as tight (see pic). Is this R21 or have a missed some setting? Thanks
  5. Yeah, it was supposed to remind you of those emails. I was just trying to take all the emotions of the last few weeks and post something a bit lighthearted. Looks like the post took on a life of its own, which is good. @3DKiwi Ironically Affinity Software previously known as "Serif" I had know idea about this software, it looks pretty cool though and appears to be very reasonably priced.
  6. I just want you to know that I've been contacted by the heir prince of Nigeria Serif and I will soon collect on such a huge inheritance that I'll be able to start my own software company. I've already allocated $1000 to Serif to cover the cost of the administrative paperwork and expect to receive my portion within the next 30 days. Soon, MAXON will not only have to worry about Blender, but the new kid on the block, Serifware 3d. If this is an inappropriate post, please feel free to delete.
  7. Bravo!! I had to watch it twice! It's beautifully done and in some ways shows how everything is linked to another. Just awesome!
  8. I was told a couple things by a MAXON rep that made me feel better about renewing my MSA. 1. Cineversity is still included 2. The current RedShift plugin still works with R21. So if you're like me and purchased RedShift for R20, its supposed to continue to work with R21. I thought this was good news.
  9. Please let me clarify, I'm not dragged down at all. I'm inspired by the artwork and people that post on this site!! I occasionally create a decent piece here and there, but want to do so more often. And I will. I wanted this thread to be about you and the other artists that contribute imagery, ideas, help, animations and variety of other things to everyone that takes the time to see and use it. I just wanted to give a heartfelt thanks from me and those like me.
  10. I just took a moment to slow down and look at the recently uploaded artwork that appears at the bottom of some of the Cafe pages. I wanted to give a shout out to all the artists that have posted work on this site that have such a wonderful gift! These artists set the bar at a level I can only dream of reaching someday. Your work makes me sad, happy, intrigued and sometimes question my own existence or purpose. You all wield the weapon of imagination to combat reality and demonstrate your ability to bring it to life. On top of this, many of you share your knowledge freely and that is appreciated by many, many, others. My hat's off to all of you and thank you for what you do!!!
  11. Thank you. So while the support may go away in 3 years, if I've chosen to continue to use a perpetual version there is no longer support for, I will be able to?
  12. Thanks for this explanation. It appears this means that if I don't do the RLM, the perpetual license does require me to reactivate it if I haven't used it for 14 days. And supposedly, because it 'never expires' I will be able to do this forever. Any chance you can answer my initial question, which was They show on their site that R21 Perpetual licenses never expire. If that is is the case, why have several people stated that elsewhere on the site MAXON indicates they may turn off previous versions in 3-4 years? This would seem to be the only reason to make a perpetual version have to connect to a MAXON server every 14 days. If this is not why the connection is necessary, I'd really like someone from MAXON to provide what the real reason is.
  13. Thanks. I'm not sure what RLM stands for (Remote License Management maybe?) But does this mean that the I would be able to use R21 perpetual even if it didn't make the call home at the 14 day mark? I (and I think many others) are under the impression that if it hasn't connected within 14 days, it stops working until the software can connect to re-activate. Is this incorrect? @hobbyist I really appreciate your response and sharing this info, but I'd really like someone official to clarify this. Thanks
  14. The reason things are so confusing is that MAXON isn't solidifying what the options are and posting it on their site in one spot to clear things up. They show on their site that R21 Perpetual licenses never expire (below). If that is is the case, why have several people stated that elsewhere on the site MAXON indicates they may turn off previous versions in 3-4 years? This would seem to be the only reason to make a perpetual version have to connect to a MAXON server every 14 days. If this is not why the connection is necessary, I'd really like someone from MAXON to provide what the real reason is. Thanks
  15. I see this as a form of welfare!! I typed up a whole paragraph and then deleted it because there is nothing we can say or do that will change anything. I wish nothing but the worse for MAXON at this point because of how they are treating their previously existing customers
