Max particle count

I wanted to know if there is a limit for the amount of particles Octane can handle. Octane seems to get very unstable at high particle counts, 20 million or more. Is this a problem on my end or caused by Octane? Thanks.

I'm not sure if there is any limit in the number of particles that Octane can render. Perhaps the problem is that you are running out of GPU RAM. In this case, enabling the out of core feature and/or disabling the GPUs with less available memory (for example the GPU used for the monitors) could help.
