Same here, love the course, but my set up crashes constantly on the smallest of things, like adding a texture, scaling textures, turning on a normal map, camera angle update...It is quite frustrating and I am considering leaving the course if I can't get further with the lessons...


Yea, I do not know what happens and the support does not either, my will random claim I have no paid sub and then crash like crazy. It is much slower than it should be too, I have two Radion Vegas Duos and I cannot use it like a normal GPU render. It is more akin to the physical render in that I have to wait until the scene updates complete before I see any kind of change. And the Denoiser or upsampler has never actually worked.

I prepared for this course for awhile and bought a bunch of octane assets. Apple convinced me they would soon have the most stable GPU system out when I decided to buy them.

Will all be unified under an OctaneRender 2021 release?


One is a full release and the other, well experimental. Or in Development. I do not know if that is it but one works and one does not.

Octane X is a superset of the current CUDA stable release (2020.1.5) with some key 2021 features (including major memory improvements) not yet ported to 2020.x CUDA (even in 2020.2 which is a CUDA only interm build coming this month ahead of moving to 2021 releases).

Starting with Octane 2021.1 , we are planning to have both Octane X 2021.1 (Metal) and OctaneRender 2021.1 (CUDA) releases and features updated in tandem.

Any news on a new update. Octane X loves to forget I have an active sub and crash until I start C4D again, load up the scene and pray it reads.

I just want the current denoising problem sorted.

Any reason we can't update to latest beta? 11.2 beta 2?

Hey man, so funny story. The class assets for Lights, Camera, and Render," all the week 1 assets are full of instances that are set to "instances" instead of "Render Instance." I assumed they would be set to render instance and did not check. When we had those switchback, and there were a lot for my scene, it stopped crashing nearly as much. It is not completely stable as the denoiser and upsample does not work but I was able to kind of finish the assignment. I still had issues seeing live render updates. When I push render it waits about 10-20 minutes before I can see any changes, but it got me through.

That would be beast. I think I read the updates to 2021 with happen with both PC and Mac.

Honestly, same... Hopefully they fix this problem and the crashes soon, because right now it's very unusable.
