Pathfinder / Add a Background image...
« on: January 22, 2009, 02:24:06 am »

I've tried to add a background image (pathfinder 2009), but the image is added in the x-y plane, i.e. at the floor level.
I'd like to add an image in the x-z or y-z plane, like a wall picture or a landscape picture (for example if I have a glazed wall and I can see the outer landscape).

Is this operation possible?
I was not able to do it.

Best regards,

Pathfinder / Create movie...

I've tried to save a movie to have a ".avi" file to visualize the evacuation calculation results.
Sometimes, the compressor tool not work.

Does this depend on what?


Pathfinder / Error in Behemoth.exe
« on: January 13, 2009, 03:38:55 am »

I'm using Pathfinder since october, end now I've refreshed the file Pathfinder beta version licence, according to yours instructions, sent me by mail.
Unfortunately, Pathfinder start correctly, but when I'd like to visualize the calculation results, the program Behemoth.exe start, but suddenly it appears a message of error and the program shut off.

 I can't visualize the graphic results of my calculation.

It's a problem of the new licence or it's a problem of my PC?

Many thanks,

Pathfinder / Edit profiles...
« on: November 26, 2008, 09:10:18 am »

I was trying to simulate the egress from a two-story building, using Pathfinder.
I need to characterize different types of people: elderly, children, male and female.

When I modified the speed field, in the Edit profiles box, I selected "Std Normal" distribution and I typed:

0.6 m/s in the "Min" field;
1.2 m/s in the "Max" field;
0.9 m/s in the "Avg" field;
0.3 m/s in the "Std. Dev" field;

then, I clicked OK.
However, the "Std. Dev" value recorded by Pathfinder is not 0.3 m/s but 0.9 m/s, that is the "Avg" value.

I have tried many times, (changing box, changing values, etc.), but the problem is the same...

Can you help me?

Many thanks,

Pathfinder / Error: Pathfinder is not Licensed and will close
« on: November 11, 2008, 08:00:21 am »

I have downloaded the files:


I have tried to install Pathfinder II (beta) on my PC (windows XP), using before "pathfinder_20080909.exe" and after "pathfinder_20080710.exe"; the installation is ok, there are no problems. But, when I launch the program, the message "Pathfinder is not Licensed and will close" appear on the desktop and, consequently, it's only permitted to click on button "ok": then, the program shut.

Can you help me?
