Hi Juanjo.

I installed the latest version of the octane (2020.1.5.0) and my cards simply stopped working

When I turn on the IPR or F9 I get the message saying that it is not possible because there are no GPUs to render.

I have drivers above recommended (V442.92)

Or am I doing something wrong.

Thank you.

Carlos Caldeira.

Converts material makes my LightWave crash.

This is happening in the version of Octane 2020.1.4.0

Thank you.

Make sure to use a NVIDIA Studio driver with version at least 451 on Windows. I'll update this information in the post.

Yeah, the material conversion is broken in LW2020 due to a problem related to its SDK. I hope to find a solution for it, but meanwhile you need to use LW2019 if you need to use this feature.

I have a question.

Since Newtek announced that LightWave development will be paused indefinitely, will Octane risk stopping development for Lightwave?

Thank you.

I have noticed a massive slowdown in render times compared to the previous version. Rendering a scene that took four minutes to complete on previous version is now saying estimated 2 hours 35 minutes for the same frame!
