Hi there guys, hope you're having a nice weekend. I got some problems here that I'm hoping you might be able to solve or advise me about.
For the last day I can't get octane to do anything, but crash in C4D. It all started when I tried loading a scene with Silverwing's free textures and locked up. Since then when I open the LV inside C4D it starts full-screen and whenever I send the scene it locks up. Once, out of every ten tries it seems to work in a completely empty scene, but as soon as i start adding more than one object or load a different project, pretty much anything - it will crash. It says the liboctane.dylib has crashed. I just got Octane for an animation project and made several styleframes the other day. Now I am afraid I won't be able to deliver because of how unstable everything is, but I really can't pull off this project without it.
One issue may be that I am using C4D R18 Student License, and somebody from Maxon told me octane doesn't work in there. But I have been using it successfully, so maybe he meant it doesn't work well in there, or you're not supposed to use plugins with the student license. Is this my issue? Even so, why would I have been able to use it before? Another thing it might be is that my GPU is not getting enough power even though the vendor guaranteed that using the two 6 to 8 pin leads he supplied would be sufficient. I have heard that you need supplemental power from two empty hard disk bays, but it's been working perfectly.
Is there some kind of preferences document kept in user data for Octane that could have been adjusted by accident? Is there anyway to fully reinstall Octane, other than just taking the items out of the plugins folder and putting them back in? Any help you all can give me is appreciated!
