Just wanted to mention that the just released nVidia driver update 419.35 doesn't break Octane like the other drivers before it did.
So you're safe to update.

Not too sure how heavy are your scenes. I managed to crash it today while it was enabled on only 1 GPU. Gave me a out of memory, render failures messages and crashed. I have around 20GB of OOC memory allocated to Octane. After turning off Denoiser for that particular scene from the render settings, the scene rendered without problem.

So looks like it also depends on how heavy or how many elements are in the scene. Anyway, at least I am happy that I am able to get it to work after a couple of months of frustrations...


Hi Rajib,

I will be looking into this issue. I need more details to figure out the issue. could you please send me about your hardware details and also could you please send me some sample scene that has the crash?.

Thanks

I have started to get BSOD with DPC_WATHDOG_TIMEOUT with the 419.35. I have reverted back to the 417.71.

I have posted the Octane 2018.1 build at https://render.otoy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=71080. If there are future Octane 4 builds, they will still be posted in this thread.

Thanks

Does this mean that there will be "two tiers" of the OCDS plug-in from now on?

What exactly distinguishes 2018.1 from 4.02.1.44?

EDIT: Nvm, just read that
To use Octane 2018.1, you need to have a Studio or Enterprise subscription license.
.

And:
If you have bought Octane 4 (i.e you have a perpetual licence) and want to use the latest versions beyond V4, there is a yearly $199 Enterprise AA maintenance fee (per machine) that uses your V4 existing licences with the latest versions (i.e. Octane 2019), including plug-ins, standalone/slaves for that machine. If you don't re-up, then your V4 licences will still be able to activate V4 builds, but not the newer releases.

In the old days when major releases were years apart, we charged $79 for upgrading standalone + one plug-in -and kept raising the price by the same for new purchases. We made V4 free (at our expense) because we didn't want to keep making Octane more expensive with each upgrade . Now with at least 3 major version upgrades a year, the annual payment approach is the best way to for us to support the product at this pace and keep costs reasonable for new and recurring users alike.


Quite funny how I don't remember this being mentioned anywhere in regard to OCDS.
In it's current form OCDS is nowhere near the progress of 2018.1 (which in itself is quite buggy to begin with) and I'm not sure how Otoy could even remotely think, that they can force such a price model upon us at this point. Actually, this is outrageous, to be frank...

The codebase is the same, however the Octane 2018.1 version of the plugin has Cryptomatte passes, which Octane 4 does not. The DAZStudio plugin would need a huge amount of reworking to support Vectrons and Volumetric Spotlights, so I don't think they will be added to the plugin in the near future. Vertex Attributes are not supported in DAZStudio, so that is not something that would be added to the DAZStudio plugin. Some of the announced features for Octane 2019.1 (like the layered material) will be added to the DAZStudio plugin (in the Studio/Enterprise version).

Does anybody know what this is all about?
It doesn't stop Octane from rendering, but it sure looks like I'm about to expire on something.
Is this their way of saying please spend another $600 before we render the plugin useless?

Yup, that's OCDS calling home to the enterprise-servers asking for license verification, which (at this point) probably most of us don't have.
And as mentioned in another post, I see absolutely no reason to upgrade to OC 2018, for as long as v4 doesn't get all the features promised for v4.

Unfortunately this means, that OCDS will fall fall even further behind the other plug-ins in terms of development progress...
