OctaneRender 2019 for DAZ Studio [TEST and STABLE]

This is the recommended thread for downloading, and posting any questions, suggestions or support queries for OctaneRender for DAZ Studio - TEST (ie. pre-release) and STABLE releases.

SOLUTIONS TO COMMON ISSUES

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

2) Make sure you are running the latest version of the OctaneRender for DAZStudio plugin.

3) If you experience a DAZStudio crash - deleting C:\Users\[username]\OctaneRender\Data\OctaneRender_settings.oczdb may resolve the issue. This also resolves the "COULD NOT INITIALISE IN-MEMORY DB!" error on startup.

4) If the Save button is disabled when using the Final button - disable the Final button and in Render settings select the SuperScope (2:1) Size / aspect ratio and drag the Viewport height or width until you reach required resolution.

5) If rendering an animation fails after 11 frames - make sure the DAZStudio viewport is visible when you render the animation.

6) If Octane materials are not loading when you load a previously saved scene - tick Preferences->Load OctaneRender materials from .duf user presets. If ticking this option does not stick between DAZStudio restarts, delete OctaneRender_settings.oczdb as per NOTE 1 above.

7) If you get a "Could not save a frame for X times!" - please refer to the thread at https://render.otoy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=66258 for potential solutions.

8) If you get a "Bogus Scene Path" error - this is due to having an apostrophe in the filepath of a texturemap (so store your textures in foldernames which do not have apostrophes).

9) Octane panel title bar is off the screen and cannot be closed - click anywhere on the Octane panel and then press Alt-F4.

DAZ Studio Version
DAZ Studio 4.8 or later on Window Vista, 7, 8 or 10 64bit

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 419.17 or higher.

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 4.00.

Support Issues
If you have a support issue, pls provide the following information:
- Operating System (ie. Win XP, Vista, 7, 8)
- Amount of RAM
- Graphics Card(s) - model (ie. GTX 580, 3GB)
- Nvidia driver version
- DAZ Studio version
- OctaneRender for DAZ Studio version (ie. 2.24.2.1)

- The most important part of resolving a problem is me being able to re-produce that problem. So pls provide as much detail as possible in order for me to do this, and if the problem is specific to the scene, send me the scene.

Code: Select all
For users with a Regular V4 license


I'm confused.
Does that mean you don't need any of these new subscriptions models?

If you don't have an Enterprise or Studio subscription, but have an Octane V4 regular license, you can use the "regular" version above. I am unsure on OTOY's long-term plans for this, so suggest you contact them if you have further questions.

I tryed Octane plugin 4.x and 2019.1 with DAZ BETA 4.12....

Starting a render leads to an instant crash... even if the scene is empty.

Cuda error 999 ...

Any ideas? Can someone confirm?

(4.11 works fine)

Did a quick check for you

DAZ Studio beta 4.12.0.60 with plugin version 2019.1.0.45.

A simple scene with G8F opens and renders without any problem

only some warnings in the log from the live DB materials auto update.
18:49:07.290: +++++ Plugin running.
18:49:08.546: Could not download preview: 2299 (WARNING)
18:49:08.933: Could not download preview: 2322 (WARNING)
