WINDOW 7.3 shut down with BSDF of Venetian blind created with genBSDF

Dear Andrew,

Finally I added the +forward and +backward in genBSDF sentence, but the
problem continued. Then I compared many XML files BSDFs and I noticed
missing the first line with information from the encoding of the file:
<? xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>

I added that line manually and then, it was be exported to WINDOW smoothly.
It is rare that genBSDF did not put that line automatically. In this case,
I worked in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Radiance 5.0.

Regards,
Daniel

Daniel,

I'm surprised that WINDOW would crash like that. But one problem is that to
import a BSDF into WINDOW it must have both front and back transmission and
reflection. To get this you should use both the +f and +b options in
genBSDF.

Best,
Andy

Hi Zhe,

It looks like apple removed some GL support in the version of OS X you are
using, which is too bad. You will need to edit src/util/Rmakefile and
remove the program "glrad" from the PROGS= setting near the top. Then,
rerun "rmake install" in that directory.

You didn't include all of your compile listing, so it's difficult to know
why rpict is not found, but did you remember to do as it suggested at the
end and add "/Applications/radiance/ray/bin" to your PATH variable? I
don't know why you decided to put everything there rather than /usr/local,
but in any case, the shell won't find commands unless it knows where to
look for them.

Cheers,
-Greg

Zhe,

The one error that is visible in your screenshot isn't what cause rpict to
fail to compile. There are probably more errors above in the terminal
window if you scroll up. Can you copy all the text from when you started to
compile alll the way to the end into an email? Just use copy paste rather
than attaching screenshot images.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi Daniel,

This is a bug I hadn't realized was introduced in the recent overhaul of genBSDF. Apparently, the character information gets stripped out and I wasn't replacing it as I should have been. I just checked in a change that should fix the problem.

Thanks for pointing it out!

Cheers,
-Greg
