Computer Requirements for the AnyBody Modeling System v5.1
The system runs only on standard Windows PC computers with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 operating systems. The system may work on earlier Windows operating systems, but this is not supported. In particular, Windows 98 systems have been known to cause problems with graphics.
The system will in principle run on very little memory, but if you have less than 128 MB you will only be able to run very small models. Larger models typically require 256 MB or more, and a full-body model does not run well on less than 512 MB.
- Notice that from version 5.0, AnyBodyTM is built with Large Address Awareness meaning that it can use more than the standard 2GB of memory for 32 bit programs. On 64 bit Windows systems, AnyBody can use up to 4GB and on 32 bit Windows systems proper modification of system options can bring it to use up to 3GB of memory.
- Running large models with large data sets, e.g. from MOCAP with many samples may required gigabytes of memory; a 64 bit Windows system is therefore recommended for advanced modeling.
The system should work on any processor capable of running the recommended operating systems, but the faster the better. Large models are computationally demanding.
A graphics adapter with OpenGL 1.1 support is a minimum requirement, but it is strongly recommended to have a discrete graphics adapter supporting OpenGL 2.0. In particular, graphics performance may be slow on shared-memory graphics adapters. At least 128Mb of dedicated memory on the graphics adapter is recommended for running large models such as the full-body models from the model repository. On windows systems with multiple graphics adapters (e.g. an on-cpu graphics adapter and a discrete graphics adapter), it is recommended to specify in the system’s graphics setup that the discrete graphics adapter should be used for the AnyBody Modeling System.
- Exporting very high-resolution images for posters and the like requires substantially more dedicated graphics memory, at least 512Mb is recommended. Such exports also require additional computer memory; 1 Gb of extra computer memory can be required during the export.
1.0Gb of free disk space is recommended for installation and model work. It is primarily needed when working with full-body models.
The AnyBodyTM Modeling System requires that Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 or later is installed on the computer.
