New Solver node example files not working on Mac OS ?
4 view setup makes no difference for me.  also, under renderer I only have a viewport 2 option and no legacy.  Is that something I need to activate somewhere as an option or perhaps maya 2018 on mac doesn't come with that option.  Sorry to have so many questions.

PFXInstancer - Missing bud node
Jeremy, thanks for the info- I will try it out.

On another note, you wrote a great asset some time ago called pfxInstancer and I really like it- still works fine in Maya 2018.  Is there a reason you ommitted the 'bud' node and if not, would it be possible for you to add the bud node to that asset without too much trouble ?

@JeremyR,
thanks for confirming that the problem is not specific to my setup on the mac.  I will try out the 4 view setup later today and report back.

@Peter, just as an fyi, a significant number of the example files either do not work on the mac or crash Maya.  Also, some of the networks can be set up successfully only through the node editor but cause a crash if using the drop down menu (or whatever that is formally called) and then crash later.  An example is scatter followed by shatter.  The addition of shatter causes a crash.  I really enjoy using Soup and would love to have it working more stably on a mac if possible. I realize that there are limited resources to achieve this so it really is just an fyi. Thank you for this great software.

Peter, thanks for this.  Unfortunately it is another case of won't work on Mac.  Using DG evaluation or Serial in Animation preferences, no difference.  Does not crash Maya though which is good.

A free light version of SoUP can be possible
Perhaps a light version could be one that is just cheaper (with some high end features removed) such that hobbyists etc. could also have access.

New Solver node example files not working on Mac OS ?
Hi Peter,
 Since nobody has been able to confirm or deny a problem with this example file on MAC OS, would it be possible for you to post another example or two of 'grow on surface' ?  I'm particularly interested in how to get organic looking geometry to grow on a surface.  The third video of the solver node showing what looks like an elaborate ice crystal is particularly interesting. Also, did you by any chance forget to include the 'grow on surface' example on the horse head in the set of files ? 

Thanks in advance

I'm using Maya 2018.  Have had same problem on Maya 2017.
OSX 10.12.6 Sierra   Using DG Eval mode in animation.  Found a VP2 setting and set it (can't find it again !!) but it does not make a difference. the scene hangs as soon as I put in the end frame in the solver node.  If you have the time, would be great to have it working or perhaps a similar scene to test. Want to analyze to learn process.  Thanks in advance.

Ok, an update...I managed to get 3 of the files working by switching to DG in animation in preferences.  Thank you very much for that.  The file that still hangs is solver_organic_growth.ma.  Any ideas what is different to resolve that one ?

Peter, thank sfor taking a look. Can you please expand on what you mean by "switch to DG evaluation of the graph (by detault it is is PE) " as I'm a bit new to all this and over my head.  Also, I downloaded the example files again and the 4 solver example files are dated Sept 4/5 as creation date and these are still crashing maya. If you have the time, would really appreciate a working file for learning purposes as I really like the look of this solver node.

I see what you mean about OS X but unfortunately I don't have that option right now.

Same problem in Maya 2017.  I suspect it's a Mac related issue ?

Peter : Can you please confirm that the example files have been tested on a Mac ?

Thanks

ZC, thanks for offering.  I am trying to get the example soup files working.  I've attached 3 of the 4 for your convenience.  In these files when I change the scene start and stop from 0 /0 to 1 /200, it causes Maya to hang.  I expect there is something else wrong with the setup in these files for Mac OS.  If you could be so kind to change those parameters such that I could hit play to get it working, I will have a working example to learn from.

Thanks in advance, Raj

ZC, thanks for the quick response.  Much appreciated.  Other than entering a start frame eg. 1 and end frame eg. 120 in the solver attributes, is there anything else I need to do first because this action causes Maya to hang and become unresponsive.    Tried end frame of even 2 and still same thing happens.

Hi, 
I don't know what I'm doing wrong but none of the 4 solver node example files do anything when I hit 'play' in Maya- other than the camera panning. Running Maya 2018 with latest trial version of Soup on Mac OS 10.12

Can someone please let me know whether the problem is at my end and how to potentially solve it or whether the new files haven't been tested on Mac ? 

Thanks

Raj
