• F.A.Q: Generic Usage and Runtime Questions

    This section provides answers to questions that don't fall into any other FAQ category, usually relating to generic usage or runtime questions.


    1. Are there any limitations to the NuGraf or PolyTrans software such as the number of lights/cameras/surfaces/textures or the number of objects in a scene?
    2. An Okino export converter reported an error that it could not locate a texture bitmap for conversion.
    3. How do I view error, warning or statistic information output by the program or its converters?
    4. How do I solve an "Out of Memory" condition?


    1. Are there any limitations to the NuGraf or PolyTrans software such as the number of lights/cameras/surfaces/textures or the number of objects in a scene? - Top

    No, there are no limitations at all in the software, memory limiting. This basic principle of no limitations has been adhered to closely since the inception of the NuGraf and PolyTrans software.

    2. An Okino export converter reported an error that it could not locate a texture bitmap for conversion. - Top

    If the texture bitmap is not in the directory specified by its filename and path then you have to explicitly tell NuGraf or PolyTrans where it is located. This is achieved by choosing the 'Configure File Search Paths' menu option under the 'File/Preferences' menu (in NuGraf) or 'Translate!/Preferences' menu (in PolyTrans).

    3. How do I view error, warning or statistic information output by the program or its converters? - Top

    Press the F2 key to make the message and error window visible. This window will contain all error and warning messages printed by the geometry import/export filters. In addition, these error messages are saved to the disk file "errors.log" located in the main NuGraf/PolyTrans distribution directory.

    4. How do I solve an "Out of Memory" condition? - Top

    Generally speaking you should not run out of memory on a 64-bit computer.

    If the program should report an Out Of Memory condition during rendering then you will either have to increase the size of your existing swap file or buy more memory. It is extremely rare when any our customers run out of memory.

    If you are importing from a large CAD file then: (1) make sure you have the "Topology = Bodies" radio button enabled for such importers as SolidWorks, Solid Edge, IGES or any of the Granite-based importers, (2) remove any useless/hidden assemblies in the source CAD program, (3) change the tessellation sliders found on most of the CAD importers, and to a less degree you can run the polygon reduction system which ships with all Okino software.
