Octane blurry on 4k display (while C4D is sharp)

Hi,
I'm having some issues with Octane's UI (interactive render window and also node editor) under C4D R21: I have the Windows 10 Upscaling enabled because I'm using a 4k display, because otherwise everything is way too small. And while C4D and for example Redshift are perfectly sharp, Octane is the only plugin that seems to be upscaled and gets blurry. What am I missing here? Any hidden settings to make Octane as sharp as C4D/Redshift?

Any help is appreciated, can't work like this. :) Thanks!
Oly

Why don't you increase font size rather than doing this? It's easier than I do whole drawing and input structures. I wrote all before R21 come out

Having the same issue with R21 and 4k display, node editor fonts are fuzzy. R18-19 are fine

Well, it's not just Cinema which would be too small @ 100% scale. It's the whole Windows UI, taskbar etc. is way too small without upscaling.. But I will play with it a bit and see if it helps. Hope Adobe CC will not turn miniature lol

yeah that's no option really, can't work like this. Gotta wait for HiDPI support now before I use the engine for new projects.

Hi,
have you tried to change the button font size?

Thanks beppe! But this won't help for all the other apps (Adobe, Music Production, Windows Task Bar and Explorer elements etc.) being way too small if Windows upscaling is disabled. Also the C4D layout itself looks very tiny even when using the biggest icons and bigger font size.

C4D Dev says
SDK - "The user area (that is used by plugins - like the PV - to display custom output) contains functions to transform from global or screen coordinates to local coordinates as well as a method returning the pixel ratio."


Also my computer has several programs. That setting is not useful for each program.
Fonts are still small on 4K monitors. Please test on 4K Monitor.
HiDPI Scaling must be supported, such as Octane for Houdini and Blender.
I hope this feature is added.
