Guys -
Does it happen when you export your scenes to standalone via Orbx and run as a batch job, or only within C4D plugin.
According to your reports, it should be simple test to trial since it happens often, and predictably with > 1 card.
You are speaking of something very specific here - Denoiser and crashes. Are the crashes stalls within just the app, or the whole PC, as in a Win 10 BSOD Watchdog violation.[/quote]


C4D Plugin. I use 3x Titan X Pascals. App crash. Not PC. I've done all these tests tons of times in variations. Just fed up. It's reputation is for stills and concept. If thats the goal then fine, but say so because i'm for animation not 1 frame.

Feels like the loyal customer base (who are too forgiving) is being exploited.


Tell us how we can specifically help and we will do if at all possible. Always here to support the costumer.



You have the worst licensing system. It seems you yourself are confused and continue to confuse the regular users who are with you from the very beginning.

I asked for a support for a personal discount on the upgrade of the PERMANENT license from V4 to the PERMANENT 2020. I specifically waited for it. Not updated for 2018-2019.

Your support did not respond to any letters (there were several)

Why didn’t you meet your old customers and did not give a discount on the update on Black Friday. 499 euros is a large one-time amount for most!

WE HELPED YOU TO IMPROVE YOUR INTEGRATIONS, ACTIVELY SENT BAGGEPORTS starting from v1 - to V4 (the most terrible period of updating from V3 to V4).
And you do not need to indicate that the update from v3 to V4 was free, it would be better if it was paid and with a system license like REDSHIFT.

You just created a big headache for yourself and the rest with the current license system.

We are waiting for your discount on the update for V4 permanent licenses (499 euros)

I have contributed to those forums already. Not seen any progress. Me posting here was based on moving to Redshift even though these new features are awesome! But I was just hoping to find some stability improvements as i'm sure you are aware of these issues.

Off the top of my head, I think the Hair Material could use a Specular node, that way even with the low roughness the spec could be scene adjusted to be less pronounced. See, I can easily adjust spec, and apply spec maps, with other materials shaders, just not with this special 'Hair' material. So it would help retain the jet black without turning mirror in some lighting scenarios.


For now I would like to avoid adding another texture in the hair shader at all cost, for performance reasons.

My preferred solution is to introduce varying IOR into the shader like the specular material, this would reduce the amount of specular reflection you are seeing at low roughness, and this is what I would do first.

Where's it? Only message about bug that's a topic like, "Re: Each frame renders longer than previous. All frames similar.". I'm not aware of all issues, I'm not wizard to estimate all. Btw some people is not finding a good way to fix stability issues which comes from hardware/drivers. And this causes problems.

Yeah that at the time was a very temporary fix. Ultimately solved nothing. Same issue. Yeah i'm not dependent on a wizard. I make my own magic. Just this issue hasn't changed which brings to mind why people don't mention Octane w/Animation so much. It's ok if it can't be fixed. That's why i'll try REDSHIFT instead.

Probably you have some C4D shaders(layer/noise) and crashed. Or some cuda crash at back and you didn't checked "CONSOLE" window. I've replied in your topic for help and you didn't answer it.
And it's not true that people don't use it for animations a lot, sorry!

Have you solve the motion blur issues with displacement or is it still a work in progress ?

Cheers

Motion blur has been supported with vector displacement for some time. If you refer to the original texture displacement this is a limitation.
