Reinhart.cal - show sky patches problem.

Dear list,

I was following the Axel Jacobs' rt-contrib lesson; trying to learn a
little bit more about DC and that kind of things. Anyway, I was trying to
show the sky divisions, s I can see the differente between Tregenza, and
Reinhart's MF1 2 3 and 4. So I did this:

···

*
*
*vsk="-x $DIMS -y $DIMS -vf views/sky.vf"*
*rm -f images/patches/**
*vwrays -ff $vsk |rcontrib -n 4 @image.opt -ffc $(vwrays -d $vsk) -V+ -e
MF:4 -f reinhart.cal -b rbin -bn Nrbins -o images/patches/p%04d.hdr -m
sky_glow \ testroom_whitesky.oct*
*
*
It works very well for tregenza and MF1; but for the rest of them (MF2 and
greater), the image corresponding to patch 244 fails, with no output at all.

Any suggestions?

THANKS VERY MUCH

German,

Most shells have a limit on the number of files that can be open
simultaneously.
You can find out what the current limit is by typing:
ulimit -n

(default is 256 for mac)

you can raise the limit to 2400 by typing
ulimit -n 2400

Hope this works,
Andy

It worked indeed, Andy, thanks again, as usual.
