Hi Erwin, Nick here again.
Getting OpenEXR downloaded/configured/compiled/installed on Linux should be
really straight forward.
If not, I'd like to know why so I can work with the rest of the OpenEXR team
to make it so.
I have a suspicion that you may have run into trouble because Blender uses a
non-standard header suite for OpenEXR. (Headers copied into non-standard
I have a further suspicion that the reason Blender wants a non-standard
OpenEXR is because of <> versus "" for #includes.
If so, once again, I'd like to see this resolved, so that Blender can use a
standard OpenEXR distribution.
As an example of the benefits of using a standard distribution, the next
release of OpenEXR does multithreaded compression/decompression and
loading/saving; this greatly accelerates dealing with long image sequences.
Let me know!
>>What is the reason you do it without?
I disabled both OpenAL and EXR, otherwise Blender doesn't compile out
box under linux.
Even after all the hassle of downloading,
OpenEXR it doesn't work.
