I’ve been working with physx (3.4.2) on a linux box and recently ran into a situation where PVD visualization would be helpful. I installed PVD on my windows box, and then ran my simulation on linux. The sim generated a 5ishMB .pvd file which I copied over to the windows box. I attempted to open it and was met with a “PVD file is invalid” error.
I varied setting up the transport with “.pvd” and “.pxd2” extensions (in case it helped) and tried varying the PxPvdInstrumentationFlag, but no permutations worked. Interestingly, pvd and pxd2 give different error messages (see title)
It seems someone else is also having this problem:
Any ideas on what might be the cause of this? Or further things I should investigate?
