I have 2 cards and usually for single image rendering they are at 86 and 78 degrees. For this animation they are about 3-5 degrees cooler as I have to wait about 30 sec. for the geometry refresh per frame. Which brings me to another question. Can you add a check box more to refresh the scene for animations instead of geometry refresh as it refreshes faster in some cases?
Also have the ability to start and stop the extra cards you might have. Right now you can't as the tabs are grayed out and you have to kill the animation first.
Yes, I was using both cards but they both stopped when the error came.
Thanks for the info Zay. There have been no other reports of this issue. Unless I can reproduce it myself, it's hard to pinpoint whether it's a hardware issue, drivers, Octane or the plugin. Happy to render the animation on my PC to see if it happens here (if you send me the scene). Some questions that come to mind....does it happen with all Poser scenes? Does it happen after a certain period of time? Does it happen if you reduce the resolution? How much RAM and VRAM are you using?
Regarding switching a card off during animation - can you simply cancel the animation, turn the card off and then start the animation at the frame where you stopped the animation?
