    "Evaluation of Acoustics using Ray-tracing"

    Um! too much echo in this room.

    Beautiful world where there is faithful people doing the Blenderart.

    37 thanks.

  • Zagupi

    That echo thing looks very nice, I can't get it to work though.. Outputs an error message every time when rendering. I tried all the three versions of the add-on, and also tried with various blender versions, 32-bit & 64-bit..  My OS: Win7 64-bit.
    Attached is the error message I got.

  • Zagupi

    Then, I tried to do the same stuff, but this time with Blender and the working folder closer to the hard disk root. Got a different error message this time, attached as well.

       Thanks for trying E.A.R and reporting back on some bugs! I've put a new version online that hopefully addresses the problems you experienced: https://github.com/aothms/ear/downloads

      The first bug was due to an ä in your file path, should be fixed now.
      Secondly, E.A.R wasn't quite ready for 2.63 (bmesh I guess) should be fixed now as well.

      Could you report back if things work now, thanks again.

      Best,
      Thomas

        Cool!
        Now it goes further, it launches the E.A.R. executable. Although now it tells me "can't load audio file". Could it be because my audio file is quite long..~7 minutes? I'm using a song as a source.
        It seems that the add-on determines automatically the output sound length? So if you use a long audio file, it renders very long... How about if it would determine the length from scene settings? Start frame -> end frame, taking into account the frame rate? So it wouldn't have to render longer than the scene lasts.

        The example scene number 1 works nicely. Although when I try to render it as stereo, the output .wav file seems to be corrupted and doesn't play.

        Other stuff... the "wooden floor" material preset gives an error message in E.A.R. ("Invalid material")
        The other presets seem to be fine.

        • aothms

          E.A.R is a little picky in the types of audio input it supports: only
          .wav files. Perhaps your audio file is in a different format? Secondly,
          indeed at this moment I would advise against using a 7min input file,
          for it would take ages to process. But if you are really interested I can
          send you a version of E.A.R that processes large files just about as
          fast as small files, but it is even more experimental than the regular
          flavour of E.A.R. Your suggestion to clip sound files to scene frame
          settings is a nice additional option though, I'll add it in a future
          version.

          The wooden floor had a typo, thanks for letting me know, but I can't
          seem to reproduce the corrupted stereo output for example 1, care to
          give me some more information, file size for example, what does Audacity display when opening the file?

          Best,

          Thomas

    It says "This site currently unavailable"... did I break it?

    Seriously, anyone know what is going on with the Blenderart site being unavailable?

    Hoping Sandra and Gaurav will notice this too.  I'll inform them.
