OctaneRender 2019 for Poser [TEST and STABLE]

This is the recommended thread for downloading, and posting any questions, suggestions or support queries for OctaneRender for Poser TEST and STABLE releases.

SOLUTIONS TO COMMON ISSUES

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

2) Make sure you have the latest Poser Service Release installed.

3) Pls read http://poserphysics.blogspot.com.au/2016/03/before-you-submit-octane-support.html prior to posting support issues.

4) Cuda error 999 - failed to load shader code: Multiple definition of 'cpSptStatistics' in 'cuda_teturemode' means that your plugin version is too old for the Nvidia drivers that are installed, so update to the latest version of the plugin.

Poser Version
Windows: Poser9/PoserPro2012, Poser10/PoserPro2014 and Poser 11/11 Pro, and Poser 11.2 on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8.
OSX : PoserPro2012, PoserPro2014 and Poser 11/11 Pro 64bit, and Poser 11.2 on MAC OS X 10.9.4 onwards.

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 417 or higher and if you are working on Mac OS that have a CUDA driver installed that supports at least CUDA 9.1.

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:
- OctaneRender for Plugin version (ie. 2.23.1.56)
- Poser version (Poser -> Help -> About Poser) - list the build number (eg. 9.0.3.23027)
- Operating System (ie. Win XP, Vista, 7, 8)
- Amount of RAM
- Graphics Card(s) - model (ie. GTX 580, 3GB)
- Nvidia driver version

Also have ready a copy of
- octaneplugin.log and cuda.log file from your Poser temp direction (Poser -> Edit -> General Preferences -> Misc tab to find the temp directory), and
- config.xml, which is in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Poser Pro\9 for Poser 9/2012 and C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Poser Pro\10 for Poser10/2014.

If you have questions
- Read the latest up-to-date on-line manual
- Read Wim's Poser Plugin User Guide
- Watch the Features Video
- Read the Features Blog Posting
- Watch the Introductory Tutorial
- Watch the Instancing Video
- Watch the HDR Light Studio Video
- Post your question on this forum thread

Download Links

If you save a .PZ3 scene containing any of the new Octane 2019.1 nodes (ie. the Composite Material) with this version of the plugin and then need to reload that scene into the Octane 4 or Octane 2018.1 version of the plugin, you will get an "Error creating pin None as type * for saved item" python error. If this happens, you need to find the materials in the Material tree containing these nodes and rightclick->"Reconvert this Material from Poser".

Do not save scenes with this version of the plugin if you want to then open those scenes with the Octane 4 or Octane 2018 versions of the plugin. Is this version broken??? why can't you save scene???

Thank you

If you save the Poser scene with this version of the plugin, it will not load the Octane information if you then try to open that scene with an Octane 4 or 2018.1 version of the plugin.

Whoop! Thanks Paul!
As always, very much appreciated. :D

Just a quick question as edit ...

Sometimes it's right confusing, with the RC, XB, 2018, 2019 naming ... all these versions.
So the "compiled to 2019.1" means, it's the newer as the 2019.1 RC5 version? sorry for the perhaps st0opid question :oops: :?: ... :geek:
