  1. Hello everyone, I’m in need of any assistance and/or advice for the proper and best practices using chief X9 on (2) computers and using onedrive to sync the files. I have read just about every post that I could find on here with regard to this and I think I’m on the right track with understanding the correct process however with the many different posts about this topic and the major issues that other users have had, I'm just needing some reassurance that I am in fact going about this correctly. I've been using chief solely on my surface book at the office and Home however I have found that I needed to purchase a desktop for the office and thus need to use both desktop and laptop. I have the hardware lock from chief and plan on using desktop at work during the day, and laptop at home at night. I will never need to use both at the same time and I will be the sole user. Essentially all I want is to use my desktop during the day and then when I get home, I want to be able to seamlessly begin using my laptop to continue working in chief with as little or no transition issues as possible. I see that many have suggested onedrive however there are also many that have had issues so I wanted to make sure that I’m doing this correctly. I have windows 10 and I installed onedrive on my C- drive. Chief X9 data and everything that comes with that is copied (I believe) to the onedrive folder along with my documents / plan files. I believe the original is saved to the hard drive under this pc / documents. (See screen shot). At this point it’s my understanding that I need to (turn off syncing before I open chief ....?) and then go into chief and change my preferences to save to the one drive folder.....? and finally turn on sync again after I save and exit chief but, before I shut down the computer to allow the recently saved files to sync for future use on my other computer....? If I’m not understanding this correctly please let know and if there is any other important info I should consider, please feel free to educate me. thank you

    SPECS ADVICE

    I got a chance to take a quick look at the previews for x10. PBR is intriguing, seams to be "real time" and object/code specific, depending on level of quality could be a game changer for certain projects. I'll inquire about this tech, Thanks for the tip.

    SPECS ADVICE

    I rather figured that was coming, and yes I agree. Tech informed me that the surface book would not give me this option however, I may have misunderstood them. I will look closer into that, thank you.

    SPECS ADVICE

    HELLO, IM BULDING A NEW DESKTOP/ TOWER AND WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE ON WHICH SPECS WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME TO USE FOR CHEIF. RAY TRACE PRODUCTIVITY IS A ABSOLUTE MUST AND I DONT WANT TO SACRIFICE GRAPHICS CARD QUALITY EITHER, I WAS DEAD SET ON THE WORKSTATION UNTIL I READ ALL OF THE COMMENTS ON HERE ABOUT THE QUADPRO NOT WORKING WELL IN CA......? REALLY. MOVING ON, HERE ARE MY CHOICES: #1. INTEL ZEON W-2155 3.3GHz, 4.5GHz TURBO, 10C, 13.75M CACHE, HT, (140W) DDR4-2666) NVIDIA QUADPRO P4000, 8GB (5820T) 32GB (2X16GB) 2666MHz DDR4 RDIMM ECC WORKSTATION M.2 512GB PCLe NVMe CLASS 50 SSD 2.5" 1TB 7200rpm SATA HARD DRIVE #2. INTEL CORE I9 7900X (10-CORE, 13.75MB CACHE, UP TO 4.5GHz WITH INTEL TURBO BOOST MAX 3.0) NVIDEA GeFORCE GTX 1080 WITH 8GB GDDR5X 32GB QUAD CHANNEL DDR4 AT 2666MHz ALIENWARE 512 GB M.2 PCLe SSD (BOOT) + 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/S (STORAGE) I HAVE SURFACE BOOK WITH PURFORMANCE BASE INTEL I7 6600U 2.8 2.81 AND NVIDEA GeFORCE GTX 965M WITH 2GB DEDICATED AND I HAVE A FEW GOOD & THEN A WHOLE BUNCH OF NOT SO GOOD DAYS WITH RUNNING (2) ASUS 27 " 1080 DISPLAYS FOR THE PAST 3-4 MONTHS IVE JUST REVERTED BACK TO ONE SCREEN BECAUSE ITS NOT WORTH THE HASSLE OF THE SCREEN FREEZING AND THE I GET "C.A HAS STOPPED WORKING.....WINDOWS IS CHECKING FOR SOLUTION..... UGH...... AND I GUESS I DIDNT EXPECT THESE ISSUES WHEN I PAID $2799.99 FOR IT 11 MONTHS AGO. ....... AND SLIGHTLY HESITANT ABOUT THE NVIDEA GeFORCE SERIES BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF STABILITY THAT IM EXPERIENCING AND IN ADDITION, IT WOULD BE REALL REALLY NICE IF THE NVIDEA GEFORCE GTX CARDS HAD DRIVERS THAT WORKED WITH WINDOWS 10 DRIVE UPDATES BECAUSE IT SURE WOULD BE NICE TO USE MY DOOR LABEL AGAIN SOME TIME OR ATLEAST BE ABLE TO PLACE A LIBRARY OBJECT WITHOUT HAVING TO CLOSE C.A AFTER EACH OBJECT IS PLACED...... ALREADY CALLED TECH AS I HAVE SSA AND ROLLED BACK BUT THE SURFACE BOOKS JUST KEEP ROLLING BACK FORWARD....ITS BEEN GREAT... SO MOVING ON I HOPE ONE OF THESE TWO OPTIONS WILL DO GOOD AT BOTH RT AND RENDER BETTER AND HOPEFULLY BOTH MULTI THREAD WELL. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH SYSTEM YOU WOULD RECOMMEND AND IF YOU HAVE TIME LETME KNOW WHY. THANKS
