It only worked when I edited it to specifically point at the FFMPEG binary in the TVAI folder. However, it takes a long time to run and I still only ended up with ~11GB in my models folder from a total of 302 files, not the >100GB that everyone else seems to be getting. I don’t know why that is. I’m running a laptop with a Ryzen 7 6800U CPU and Radeon 680M GPU. When I try to preview different configurations in TVAI, it inevitably wants to download the model despite making sure it’s configured to look at the same models folder I’m downloading to.
Can anyone get this script to work in macos? If I run this from /Applications/Topaz Video AI.app/Contents/MacOS I get an output similar to what others have had and nothing gets downloaded. Any help would be appreciated.
Running Ventura 13.2.1 on an M1 Mac mini, Topaz Video AI 3.2.5
I tested the script for macOS and it doesn’t work. Why provide a script that obviously does not work and moreover without any detailed instructions. I am very disappointed with this version 3.2.7 and for the moment it is absolutely not worth buying until the version is at version 4. Version 2.6.4 remains for the moment better designed.
I’m a Mac user and was running into the “Downloading Models” error. It seemed that every time I tried to generate a preview it would hang on that error and fail.
I wrote a PHP script that searches through the Topaz Video AI log files, regexes the missing models, then downloads them into the models folder. Any time I get that error, I just run the script and it pulls in the missing models. It’s been useful to me, so I figured I’d share in case it was useful to someone else:
To run, download the file, cd into the directory the script is located, and execute php getMissingModels.php from the terminal.
