Somehow we have to accept and move on. My speculation is that there is more than meets the eye that we don’t know, RL made the first move.
So much in life happens, and in such situations you better make peace and leave your baby to the most suitable parents of who has the knowledge and capacity for growth for your baby.

Think about it from a business perspective it does not make sense to develop two engines that are basically the same. Finally one has to give in. Am afraid it does not look good for corona development.

I always envisioned that render engines will be running on Web Browsers. Now with Browsers (Firefox) Web Assembly it seems to be sooner than I thought.

Hardware / Re: keyboard suggestions

To be honest I don't think Mechanical keyboards will increase your productivity much. I only purchased a Corsair strafe-Cherry MX Blue because I do much of coding where I spend 95% keyboard 5‰ mouse unlike CGI which i spend 80% mouse/stylus 20‰ keyboard.

Got no problems.

I built similar kind of rig.

i purchased Xeon 2683v3 OEM  from ebay from the icomputer_parts in Japan at USD 351 + USD 16 (EMS Shipping - Registered mail)

the chips on sale are linked below. He sells in batches and re-lists a new batch again.

his chips are Legit, and are OEM not ES. I did a corona benchmark and got 55 seconds (BCLK 104.0 overclocked) and 58 seconds normal.
Basically they have been pulled out servers currently, only visible small scuffs on the Chips, Shipping was 1 week with tracking available. They come in an envelope package and are padded.

For customs he basically marks them as Gift "Computer Processors for Testing Purposes" and costs them at USD 22.
I paid only USD 10 for customs in my home country :)

General Discussion / Precomputation-Load from file?
« on: 2016-10-25, 14:21:54 »
Might Corona be loading the Light Calculation File every time when rendering a Frame within an animation without moving objects or lights?

I noticed Read activity on the Hard Disk on every new frame render for an animation when  "Precomputation-Load from file" is selected. I would presume the file is loaded once throughout the entire animation rendering.
