elastic reality

Unread postby hamei » Thu Nov 13, 2014 1:32 am

Does Elastic Reality run on the 3000 series stuff ? Seems to me it used to work on the Fool (but that might have been in Octane years w/MXI) but when I try now (O350, V12 gfx) :

Code: Select all

urchin 101% er
Bus error
urchin 102% er_anim
/usr/sbin/er_anim[4]: 1820 Bus error

if it worked on the fuel it works on the o350, too. you might wanna run it from dbx and see what's the problem

That's what I'm not sure about. Been a looong time since I tried to use it. Could have been on the Octane. I thought sure you'd be an er user :shock:

Is there something else for morphing ? I did one or two things a long time ago with this, it was pretty easy (was doing simple stuff tho.)

I can see why you would not like Matador. That program makes DOS look good :shock: Good thing it works better than it looks !

i actually used matador a little more because i simply had no need for ER. morphing was either a default part of the compositing programs or by plugin

alright, checked it out and it worked fine; the demo version tho.
anyhow it wasn't flawless. turned out to be incomplete inst prereqs:

if you install er with the required dependencies the following happens:

Code: Select all

Can't find 'loaders' file in HIIP directory '/var/avid/hiip'.

running er_anim leads to:

Code: Select all

er_anim[4]: 1973 Memory fault


the regular er produces a proper error telling what's missing. er_anim however doesn't and just crashes. obviously the missing hiip parts are the problem. here's what i had installed at the end (working fine then):

Code: Select all

I  avid                 1001003000  Avid Admin, 1.3
I  avid.sw              1001003000  Avid Admin Software
I  avid.sw.lib          1001003000  Avid Support Libraries
I  er                   1003000009  Elastic Reality, 3.0
I  er.sw                1003000009  Elastic Reality Software
I  er.sw.er             1003000009  Elastic Reality Software
I  hiip                 1001006008  HIIP, 1.6.8
I  hiip.sw              1001006008  HIIP Software
I  hiip.sw.hiip         1001006008  HIIP Support Utilities
I  hiip.sw.lib          1001006008  HIIP Libraries

Eighteen, you say ? Thanks !

Yes, hiip was missing, I just haven't had enough spare time to go hunt up that CD. Now that I know which one, it should only take three days instead of three weeks :P grazie

What do you think of it, ingrate ?

it should be on the cd from avid or whatever other source you have since it's needed to run the thing

Ja, if I didn't have more CD's than Carter has liver pills, I could find it instantly :( I think I copied it over from the Octane, actually. It's been a while ...
