Thanks Lino.

Tried to install OctaneServer Prime from today's upload but keep getting some errors. See screen shot attached. Do you know why?

EDIT - Working now. I restarted my machine and it may have been caused by the older version running in background. All good!

Hi, I'm working with the latest stable, there is a lot of server crash when I try to copy/paste or hide/unhide object when the viewport is in rendered mode. Here is the link to the file where the crash happens (the crash happens not only in this file, just for investigation):

https://www.dropbox.com/s/phn71astrhs4lem/industrial%20living_octane_crash2.blend

Step to reproduce the crash: open the file, go to rendered view mode, select one object, and then isolate it with Numpad slash.

My spec is:
- Ryzen 5 2600
- 32GB RAM
- RTX 2070 SUPER
- GTX 1060 6GB (display)
- Windows 10 build 1909
- NVIDIA Driver 441.66
- OctaneRender for Blender 2019.1.5 - 20.7

Hi. I have a lot of problems working with linked libraries.
I linked rigged character, as a linked collection.
After that I duplicated the character couple times and started setting up the scene.
But when I am trying to delete any object - blender crashes.
Sometimes it crashes when I hide/unhide objects.
But, If I delete the object right after relaunch, it works fine, allowing me to delete any number of objects.
But, If I go to the pose mode, setting up my rig, I will definitely have a crash when I will try to delete any object.
I am using the latest Free tier available.
Thank you.

Hello!

I am facing a weird issue. It is the first time I am posting here because after hours of research, I haven't found an answer to my issue.

I am currently running the version 20.7 of OctaneRender and Blender Octane Edition 2019.1.5 (the Free Tier). I have two GTX 970's and I'd like to use both. CUDA is installed, and Octane renders perfectly well on the 1st GPU, but not the second. When I try to check it, I have this red cross appearing on my screen: Image


I have disabled SLI (the bridge isn't installed anyway) and have the latest Nvidia drivers installed. I have enabled "Compute Mode" in the Nvidia settings panel and enabled them on maximum performance.

How to replicate: Simply try to enable the second GPU from the OctaneRender panel.

If you need any more hardware specifications, i'm using an Intel Core i5-6600 and 16 gigabytes of RAM. I just installed a fresh copy of Windows 10, so pretty much nothing else except Blender, OctaneRender and Chrome is installed.

Thank you for your help and have a nice day!

From what I can tell this is intended as the free tier plugins only support 1 GPU for rendering.

Having a problem with Live DB materials server crashes and freezes halfway through downloading the database as well as freezing when I make changes in the node editor.

The free tier only supports one GPU.

Hi,

I'm testing out a "new" Linux Distro and I spent several hours last night trying to get this to work...

The server starts, I can add the plug-in to blender.. the License gets activated... and that was all, nothing more happens.

The console windows only keeps on saying that its starting the plugin or something like that.

So, where do i start to track this down?

Thank you!

Hi,
have you tried with OctaneBench 4.00c, to see if everything is working with CUDA driver under Linux?
