face_off wrote:Weird problem in Poser2014 Pro:
Have Octane rendering in the viewport.
Change the material node type from a material with texture images in it from ex. glossy to diffuse
This crashes Poser with an error on wxmsw291u_core_vc_custom.dll (2 times in a row, then Poser closes)
This happens with both versions 1.14a and 1.16a
It does not happen when the material nodes are changed without the render window open.
It does not happen with materials with just RGB values.
It is independent from the scene, any object, even the simplest primitive, with a texture provokes the crash.
This does not happen wit Poser2012 Pro (on the same machine).
This looks like your Poser Pro 2014 python installation is corrupted. wxmsw291u_core_vc_custom.dll is a PoserPython file. I suggest re-installing Poser Pro 2014.
After further investigation i found that Poser 2012 has the same problem with the versions 1.14 and 1.16
However i could nail the problem down to the video driver for the onboard Intel HD Graphics 4000 chip.
Earlier i installed the latest version (184.108.40.20671) from Intel which apparently is the source of this problem. I now reverted back to the old driver version which came with the motherboard or Windows 8 (i forgot which of the two), and now everything (version 1.16a5 btw) runs smoothly!
This Intel 4000 doesn't seem to match well with Octane.
However the strange fact remains that version 1.13 with Poser 2012 gave no problems.
I guess it must be a OpenGL thing ...
Anyway, thanks for your support Paul!
