This is the recommended thread for downloading, and posting any questions, suggestions or support queries for OctaneRender for Rhino - TEST and STABLE releases.

SOLUTIONS TO COMMON ISSUES

1) Make sure your NVIDIA drivers are up to date.

2) Make sure you have the latest Rhino Service Release installed.

3) If you get an "Error Starting Octane - Could not load OctaneWrapper?.dll" error when installing the plugin, this is generally due to not having the latest NVIDIA drivers installed (so see Solution 1) above.

4) If you get a "Package not compatible" error when installing the plugin, please follow the instructions at https://wiki.mcneel.com/rhino/5/rhi-problems -> "Package not compatible".

5) If you get an "Unable to load OctaneRenderForRhino.rhp plugin: initialization failed" error when starting the plugin, delete the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-Ins\F109BD23-4CF3-4C0B-9F83-06BE474B0152 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-Ins\F109BD23-4CF3-4C0B-9F83-06BE474B0152 registry entries using Regedit and then reinstall the plugin.

If the above does not resolve the problem, then delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros from the registry.

6) If you get an "OctaneRender for Rhino not activated." error when rendering via the Rhino->Render->Render menu, open the plugin Setup window via the OctaneRenderForRhino command, or by adding the plugin panel to the Rhino Properties window as per https://docs.otoy.com/RhinoH/RhinoPluginManual.htm#Rhinoceros/InstallationofthePluginintoRhinoceros.htm.

7) Cuda error 999 - failed to load shader code: Multiple definition of 'cpSptStatistics' in 'cuda_teturemode' means that your plugin version is too old for the Nvidia drivers that are installed, so update to the latest version of the plugin

8) The Octane Viewport does not appear after clicking the Open Viewport button. This occurs when the Viewport was previous closed on a second monitor, or off the current screen. To resolve this, delete the plugin configuration file config.xml as per https://docs.otoy.com/RhinoH/RhinoPluginManual.htm#Rhinoceros/Configuration.htm.


Rhino Version
This version requires Rhino6, SR19 or later on Windows. MacOSX is not currently supported.

To use this version, you need a GPU of compute model 3.0 or higher. Support for Fermi GPUs (like GTX 4xx and 5xx) has been dropped. Also make sure you use a driver of version 387 or higher and if you are working on Mac OS that have a CUDA driver installed that supports at least CUDA 9.1.

Network Rendering
For Network Rendering, you must use the Octane slave release from the Octane Standalone installer which matches the exact Octane version of the plugin you are using. This version matches OctaneRender Standalone 2019.1.

Support Issues
If you have a support issue, pls provide the following information:
- Operating System (ie. Win XP, Vista, 7, 8)
- 32 or 64 bit
- Amount of RAM
- Graphics Card(s) - model (ie. GTX 580, 3GB)
- Nvidia driver version
- Rhino version and build number

Hi - I just installed that version on my PC and it installed and run OK. Do you have the latest Nvidia drivers installed? Does Octane Standalone 2020.1 XB1 render for you?

Hi Paul,

I'm having some trouble saving to a multi-layer EXR from Rhino with the 2020.1.0.116 plugin. I get this message and it doesn't save the file. I'm able to save a regular EXR without any issues, but not layers. I've tried saving it to different drives and in every case it only references the drive letter in the error message and not the full file path. It's also referring to the image as the drive letter which is further confusing. I'm currently trying to export the denoised image and a cryptomatte. Any ideas?

Thanks for the help,
Travis

Hi Travis. I could not reproduce your problem. Can you please provide a sample scene and the exact set of steps required to reproduce the error.

Thanks

Hi Paul, Just wondering are they any updates for regular license?
The latest version of the Regular license plugin is Octane 4.05 - at https://render.otoy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=69577&start=40. I would not anticipate releasing any further Octane 4 builds of the plugin, so I would suggest moving to an Octane 2019 license for continued updates.

Thanks

Hi Paul,

Thanks for getting back and sorry for the delay in my reply. I get the error dialog when attempting to save a layered EXR from the corresponding icon at the top of the Octane IPR window in any of the format options (32, 16, ACES, tonemapped or not). It gives me a file explorer window that I can type the file name into, but after hitting save it presents the error. I just tried deleting the plugin from Rhino and I updated to the latest .117 version of the plugin but that didn't solve it for me. Do you have any ideas as to how to either reset things or how I could provide you with any technical info? I'm also running the latest studio drivers for my Nvidia 2080Ti (Studio 441.66).

I tried using Rhino's rendering window, but I don't see any options related to saving out the render as a layered EXR and I'm honestly not certain that it even saves out EXR's as the save dialog doesn't list it as a file format.

Thanks again for the help,
Travis
