I can confirm the issue with your file, but I can't reproduce it. How did you get a polygon like that? Looks like it has issues with vertex order.

Hi all. Arch Linux just updated to Nvidia driver 370.28 and it doesn't cause Blender/Cycles to crash anymore.

Hi @Kévin Dietrich (kevindietrich) just wondering why you didn't use the patch? I see that you updated FindAlembic manually, which is of course most important, and granted the rest of the changes I made are mostly cosmetic:

Hi, do you have "Auto Run Python Python Scripts" on? (User Preferences -> File) It needs to be on for it to work.
Tested with build from yesterday (on Linux FWIW).

Ejner Fergo (ejnersan) added a comment to T48526: Render doesn't look like Camera View.

It's the aspect ratio. The formats you selected all expect a player/device that can convert the pixel aspect ratio to the correct display aspect ratio. If you render (F12) you can see how the output looks. I made an image that hopefully explains some things:

Ejner Fergo (ejnersan) added a comment to T48075: Alembic Basic IO.

You are right! I tried a stupid simple test again - a RBD cube falling on a plane (without baking to keyframes) and a cube with 2 LocRot keys - export to alembic, import in Houdini Apprentice and it works! Importing in Blender there is no motion on either cubes though...

  • In the current paradigm the only way to modify an object after an Alembic import would be to add a modifier to it after the mesh cache modifier.

So baked Rigid Body sims won't work then? :-/

Alrighty then!

Great progress! So nice having the modifier set up automatically, and no glitching anymore! I'm certain you are on top of what needs to be done, but I'll ask just to be sure: Will it be posible to support object transformations (outside of mesh cache)?

Ejner Fergo (ejnersan) added a comment to T48075: Alembic Basic IO.

I'm sorry, the HDF5 error was on my end. Turns out HDF Group had made threadsafe and high-level-library options mutually exclusive* in version 1.10.0 and 1.8.16, and Arch Linux had updated to 1.10.0 which was build without threadsafe (Alembic needs this when using HDF5). I found some other issues with Alembic using HDF5-1.10.0 and how to fix them, and made the Alembic developer aware of them. I also communicated the problem with not having the new HDF5 build with threadsafe option to the Arch package maintainer.

Ejner Fergo (ejnersan) added a comment to T48075: Alembic Basic IO.

Done (Ogawa + UI) :)

Wow that was fast :) Thanks!

Unfortunately we don't have access to the scene data in the place where the UI for the operator is generated. Now I think maybe it''d be better to replace the end frame setting with a "number of frames" setting?

Hmm.. maybe better to keep end frame then, so us lazy people don't have to calculate number of frames if start frame is eg. 37 ;) Unless I'm misunderstanding that setting in alembic context..

This bug was brought to my attention in D1783, and should be fixed now.

Ah yes cool, just build and tested.
So, I tried to export a super simple RBD cube falling (with baked keyframes), but when importing and using the modifier, there was no animation. I exported with start frame = 1 and end frame = 60. Am I missing something?

Ejner Fergo (ejnersan) updated the diff for D1933: install_deps.sh Spring Cleaning and OpenVDB.

While testing Alembic, i found that RPM distros couldn't compile boost correclty due to missing headers. DEB and Arch is fine. Tested using "--build-boost" on Fedora 23, CentOS 7 and openSUSE 42.1 and it works now, making the script more robust.

Ejner Fergo (ejnersan) added a comment to T46162: Cycles caches bvh in .config/cache folder of Blender, this can lead to huge amount of data never cleaned there.

Well… would rather question the mere existence of 53GBi in ~/.cache/... at all, when dealing such amount of data think you should specify project cache dir, instead of using default one. Also, not sure where does this comes from, afaik Blender does not use that path at all by default (at least, here I have no ~/.cache/Blender). I would assume you defined that path in some user preferences' paths?

Sorry Campbell, it happened on the default Cube scene (and eg. koro_final.blend where MIS is enabled) so didn't think to save a .blend! Here is one now. It isn't even necessary to load an environment texture first - just enabling the world MIS and shift to rendered mode crashes Blender for me.

@Atomic (atomic)
Following your steps[1] and playing the animation, when the cube/shards falls I get a single vertex left hanging. Simply selecting and deleting this vertex "fixes" the issue. I don't understand why you would select every shard individually to make them active?

I'm also on Arch 64 and have this problem too for some time now, on my own compiled Blender-master. Crashes/segfaults consistently, not only when moving an object to another layer, but also when subdividing and then increasing the cuts. Downloading from builder.blender.org does not have these crashes.
