Now Big Sur 11.2 is out, is there a PR8 of OctaneX?

Hello? Is this thing on?

They start testing. It's strange that only now. The first beta of macOS 11.2 started two months ago.

Feels like development has slowed to a crawl. The denoising issue still hasn't been fixed, even though (IIRC) it was working in the build before PR7.

Not terribly forthcoming with information are they?

Just registered to make a short confirmation post here:
I upgraded to Big Sur (could only install macOS 11.2 (20D64)) to try out Octane X (Version 22.2 (22.2 2020-12-15)) in combination with Blender.

Unfortunately neither the Octane X Demo PR1 nor the Server works:
Demo is crashing immediately.
Server is starting up but crashes when opening up blender for octane. If you open it up the other way around (blender first, then server) blender does neither recognize the server nor allows to see log, start rendering, etc.

Looking into the mac console both apps crash with a segmentation fault:
Code: Select all
"Service exited due to SIGSEGV | sent by exc handler..."


I would be very happy if this issue would be solved, as there actually is not a single way to use an eGPU in combination with Mac OS X and Blender at the moment.

I'm trying to test out Octane X P7 on a Mac Mini with M1 chip and Big Sur 11.2. I can't even get the plugin to load in C4D. As a matter of fact, the only plugins running at all at this point are those that are part of GreyscaleGorilla+ . Nothing else will load. Does anyone else having any success in getting Octane to run on an M1 Mac ? Thanks!

So the end of another week, no PR8, no updates, no news. Business as usual then

Did you get any positive result?

TO be honest, since there is no benchmark test for Mac, I really don't know. I would not recommend upgrading to Big Sur just because of all the non-C4D problems I've been having

ciao Beppe

Beppe On mac OS .. where is the preference file for those settings? I think mine is read only.. or.. maybe it is because i'm using the new.c4d project trick.. perhaps.. either way.. my settings seem to be read only and each time i restart i need to "Uncheck" the intel gpu each time.. its soooo very annoying.!
Where in the os are those prefs at.. so i can kill the file and hopefully it will then stay off.
