File upload size restriction? Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

Rather a question, but I am too blind to find anything about it - is there a restriction to the size of files I can upload here? Because I have several texture packages over 20Mb - should I devide them up?

Hi ... we allow up to 180 Mb so you shouldn't have a problem.

That's strange. I tried a 24,5 Mb upload yesterday several times. Finally I divided it up into two packages and it worked then...

Hi I spoke to Engineering about this, this morning.  The max size is indeed 180Mb and most people who've uploaded large files have been successful.  We don't really know why you had the problem you had.  It could be that somewhere along the line something timed out in the middle of your upload, but we don't know for sure.  We'll keep our eye on this, and run some experiments ourself to see if we can reproduce the problem you encountered, and if we find it we'll fix it.  Thank you very much for alerting us to this potential problem.

Hi there,

 

I have the same problem with a 43 MB rar-File. Tried it several time (4 or 5) on different times and different days but it won't upload. I got no error message (!) after a long time of uploading it shows my account page but without the new upload on it :(

Any ideas?
Regards
Sascha

I have had this problem ever since I joined CGShare.....there does not appear to be an answer. I cannot upload anything above around 12MB without trying several times. It apears to upload but there is nothing there. Nobody has been able to help. I DO hope you get a resolution!

No matter now....I have deleted all my stuff....and may I say...because there are extremely immature, childish people in some of the forums who do nothing but moan.

Cheers ALL

If this is because I dared to speak my opinion on "Tubing", I think you might be the childish over reacting one here, but thanks for giving me that much control over your life. I feel really powerful now. Innocent

I DO NOT produce tubes....I just felt that you were overstating your view to all those who do... and there are many of them. You have NO control over my life.......I cannot upload here as I have the same problem as stated by the original poster here. Hours trying to upload is impossible.

As for childish....I am a retired scientist, live in the UK and, clearly don't think like you. Your views don't upset me......I use Poser, Bryce etc. for many purposes including ANIMATION!!!!!....there are many members producing tubes and it was the manner in which you stated your case that I found to be unhelpful.

Enough!......I do not need this and see no point in trying to be helpful or constructive.

Frankly I find your overly emotional response to my opinion about tubes to be evidence to the contrary. My opinion on tubes wasn't aimed at you or anyone else specifically. I do think your response belies you're claims of being a scientist, but whatever. Where's your objectivity? You called me angry and yet, the only ire I see here is yours, aimed at me. I don't need it either.

OK....now you are questioning my honesty and qualifications!!! I am a fully qualified scienstist with a first class honours degree and MBA and object to the suggestion of being "overly emotional".  It was obvious that you were targeting me because of your reference to fonts...and I was doing alphabets alongside my photography and animation work.

I would prefer to call a truce over this.

Lets just get on with the job in hand. I enjoyed posting to this site with all the hours spent trying to upload!! I would prefer to focus on this......OK?

Look! I clicked on the link that you provided to the fonts but that doesn't mean I targeted you or anyone else. It was merely a reference point I used to make my point about how I feel about "Tubes"! Period. Not how I felt about you or anyone else. YOU took it personally and lashed at me. Hence, the "Overly emotional" remark. I'm sorry you felt targeted, but I wasn't aiming at you.

You yourself mentioned how people were rendering certain figures from DAZ I believe, and passing them on in multiple poses as Poser content. When I mentioned fonts, it was because I HAVE seen people taking copyrighted truetype fonts that they've paid for, rendering complete alphabets of them as png tubes and redistributing them. Your link only brought it to the forefront in my memory. It didn't mean I was "having a go" at you or anyone else.

As I said. I don't know you. I have nothing against you. I do NOT like Tubes or tubers who use copyrighted items with the intent to redistribute them. If you're not a tuber, you shouldn't feel the least bit threatened by how I feel about them. Ok? Peace.

Just to clarify the position on rendered images from Poser....here is a link

http://market.renderosity.com/mod/forumpro/showthread.php?thread_id=2708402

I have consulted all the necessary copyright people and I think it is time that this issue was just accepted. I do Poser renders and alphabets and removed my stuff yesterday out of sheer frustration. How stupid I was...it took hours and hours to upload because I am one of those members whose uploads fail to appear.

I am not a tuber....(although the same conditions to apply to this practice) so can we just accept that the EULA and the statements from the experts is correct!!!!?????

Thanks for listening....I am so fed up with ignorance!!! I spend hours on my educational work and the stuff that I had posted here (now gone forever) but c'est la vie!!!!

Cheers

Again, that only refer's to the EULA's of items sold at Renderosity. They are not the end all be all authorities on copyright laws and they will only tell you what you can and can not do with items sold in their own marketplace.

 I've been around on the net since it opened to the public in the mid 80's I've seen every argument for and against tubing. I've watched font makers go after people redistributing their font's in rendered form and winning. I'm not "Ignorant" when it comes to this subject.

Please read my reponse on "questionable tubes". I am talking about the policy for DAZ....I am NOT talking specifically about tubes. Had a long chat with Jaguarwoman (vendor on Rendo) and she knows the law inside out. I too have been using the internet since it first began and I am not ignorant either.

I am just trying to provide information....why do you resist?????...I am not trying to influence your OWN views....just the law as it applies to me....I don't know about others...that is their responsibility to research.

Cheers

I'm not resisting anything except being called ignorant. I'm not the one who has to worry about defending tubes. I'm just doing my part to make sure that everyone is aware of fact that there are legal issues regarding copyrights and redistribution of copyrighted materials. If you consider that resistance, that's fine by me. I just call it keeping people aware.

I'm sorry that you seem to be taking this as something personal against you, but it's not. I don't want to see ShareCG suffer any legal expenses because of questionable tubing practices. That's all. Peace.

Apologies Varanayrah....I posted to let you know that I have that very same problem and still do. It appears that some members get a "time out" when uploading. I have a fast internet connection but engineering are aware of my problem and that of others. You could mail them.

The "off-post" discussion came from my frustration at trying to be helpful in another post...I do apologise!! Hope you get an answer to your upload question. I do not think it is resolved as yet as I have tried to upload again and cannot manage it as yet.

Good luck. Laughing

Hi Varnayrah,

In short... we allow up to 180mb. Just sometimes it gets choked up if your upload connection speed is too slow, or you're too far away from our California headquarters.

Hi,

because I have the same problem with big upload files isn't there a way to handle it? I think perhaps timeout time for a process is way to small so if you have slower upload it will terminate the process. Perhaps you could also enable an ftp-upload for such cases per request? Would be really really nice!

Regards
Sascha

Just FYI --- I checked with our enginering department and they tell me that our server is set to time out after 45 minutes.  This should be enough for most people.  For security, and other reasons, they don't think that it is advisable to extend this.

That explains it!  I was goint to mention that the problem with uploading content may not have to do with size limits.  I connect with a 56kb modem, but only connect at 26kb.  I am unable to download anything over a few megabytes before the download fails.  The way the download fails, I cannot continue the current download, but need to restart from scratch.  It may be failing at the 45-minute mark.  Since neither DSL nor cable in available in my area, I will never be able to download any large content from sharecg.  I wonder how many people have logged onto sharecg, only to get fed up and decide to never download from sharecg again.  I was lucky enough to have several successful downloads of smaller files first, so I have only given up on trying to download any large content.  If there was a way around this problem, such as an intermediate web site that files could be sent to and from, this could solve both problems.

One solution to at least bypass the download problems would be to allow for resuming interupted downloads, like the use of a Download Manager (FlashGet for example). I'm also astonished to have to find out by sheer coincidence through this Forum Topic about the Time Limit (45 Minutes) for uploading files: This should be clearly stated by ShareCG to anybody attemting to upload files here. I am also guessing that in particular in the so called "Freebie Community" there might be many who can not afford fast Internet and are limited with Dial Up and are therefore more then disadvantaged. At best I can upload 4 to 5 MB per hour (I am also on Dial Up and live in a remote area in Northern Australia) and can only upload here thanks to some friendly help from DAZ Forum Members (I can easy upload to Rapidshare and they upload it for me then here to my Portfolio) but I was also told about the upload problems they had here and just about all files had to be split.

I am having the same problem trying to upload a Poser morphs set. This is my first time, too. It gets to stage 2 and that is where it stays. I even left it going for hours and the only thing that uploads is the preview pix.
