Hi, I'm having problems once again, and I don't seem to see any similar problem posted in the forums, so here goes:
In an effort to get more realistic lighting results, I recently purchased several extremely high resolution HDR probes from hdrmaps.com. Unfortunately, the plugin is having difficulty loading them into the texture environment node. The first thing that happens, is that the computer just takes a figurative dump, Windows processing wheel spinning wildly, response from the mouse intermittent, my music skipping wildly. After several minutes (maybe 2 or 3) control is restored, and it appears the probe has been loaded (the texture environment node is showing the name of the .hdr file under 'texture').
When I try to render, then, Octane can't render even the first sample. The plugin throws this error:
Cuda error: CUDA error 1 on device 0: One or more of the parameters passed were not within acceptable range of values. (refer to cuda.log for details).
The .hdr probes I'm having difficulty loading are about 250mb in size (20,000x10,000 px). In contrast, I have no issues loading smaller sized .hdr files (around 150mb in size).
Is this message indicating that the plugin cannot load a file that large? How can this be remedied? If these .hdr files cannot be loaded in Octane, I've really wasted a bit of money.
Thanks in advance for the help.
