Basically Nahimic Service is just an audio enhancement software on top of your system audio driver (mostly Realtek), so uninstalling Nahimic should not cause any problem.

But for compatibility reasons with other system drivers and software from your motherboard or laptop manufacturer, you should just disable it.

If you didn’t know how to do disable Nahimic, follow the steps below

  1. Press Windows + R to open Run dialog, type “services.msc” and press Enter.
  2. Look for “Nahimic service” or anything related to “Nahimic“. You can press “n” to quickly jump to the list.
  3. Right-click it and select Properties.
  4. In the Nahimic Service Properties window, select Disabled in Startup type.

BP26 early concept

long time wonder

How to measure the depth of a body besides looking at actual medical book with exact number???

  • depth between spine of the scapular and clavicle
  • depth between 8th rip and the back muscle
  • depth of pelvis
  • depth of the gap between pubic symphysis and sacrum

face progress

I realized all of my previous work are having a similar look. They all start from scratch but all ended up with the same face 😦

back to character

been over a year I haven’t touch anatomy. A quick practice started last week. Obviously Im getting way slower and rusty. I require huge amount of references. I can’t do it just within my head anymore. I realize that the early block out stage is way more important than to adjust the proportion and shapes later.

1. edit > plug-in > modeling tools editor mode
2. activate it with this button
3. select an object > deform > displace
4. switch displacement type to texture2D > pick the texture at options > displacement
5. Hit accept when its good
6. switch the mesh to nanite

UE5 displacement hack

Thanks to GDi4K. Since UE5 doesn’t have tessellation like UE4. The other way is to apply a displacement map into the modeling editor mode(plugin) and apply the displacement deformation to the mesh. But there has problems with that method for procedural texture. The Virtual Heightfield seems better because it transfer the material to the virtual height field mesh.. I have not tried it myself.

This thing take me some time to get this away from my computer due to windows 10’s security

This software cannot be found in my add/remove program list. But it sits where the autodesk folder under c:\program files. The folder is write protected so the first step is to make it writable

For windows 7 it is easy:

  1. simply right click to the folder > property > check off “read only” hit apply and done

For windows 10: some how windows 10 keeps saying this process needs administrator access which I already am. So it needs other access to be turned on

  1. right click to the Autodesk SSOC folder
  2. go to security > edit
  3. make sure each group and user names are all check with allow full control
  4. if it doesn’t work then click to security > advanced > owner > hit change > hit advanced > hit find now > click on adminstrators > hit ok
  5. click Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and hit apply and okay everything
  6. If it still doesn’t work, go in to security again > advanced > change permissions > add > select a principal > advance > find now > select everyone > click ok > check on full control and hit okay again
  7. finally turn off the anti virus
  8. Try to check off the read only again it should work

Next is the real process of uninstalling this with command prompt rather than add/remove programe

  1. go to command prompt “run > cmd”
  2. type in: wmic
  3. it’ll get you into wmic:root\cli>
  4. type in: product get name
  5. it will show all of the software being installed in the current computer even with the one doesn’t show in add/remove program
  6. autodesk single sign on component should be in the list
  7. then type in: product where name=”Autodesk Signle Sign On Component” call uninstall
  8. it’ll ask yes or no, type yes
  9. then it’ll say method execution successful returnvalue= 0 (if the return value isn’t 0 that means it didn’t uninstall properly

Autodes Genuine Service will not uninstall properly from add/remove program because there has this ProductInformation.pit file communicating back to autodesk. According to Autodesk the genuine service will automatically remove after it doesn’t detect any other autodesk software are installed this process may take up to 2 weeks. But some user says it stays in there for half a year.

Brute force uninstall:

  1. Move the file “C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Adlm\ProductInformation.pit” into somewhere safe
  2. go to control pannel > add and remove programe > uninstall Autodesk Genuine Service
  3. it should properly uninstall it

However some of the autodesk products(eg, softaimge 2015) may not work due to the software can’t find the productinformation.pit file. Simply put this file back to C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Adlm and the product shall work properly.
