Cinema 4D version 4.00 (obselete stable)

Hi All,

This is the first stable release of the plugin which is based on V4.00 SDK and matches OctaneRender Standalone 4.00. To learn more about the new features and improvements of OctaneRender 4, please check out our blog post.

License upgrade
Unless you have a subscription license, you will have to upgrade your version 3 licenses to version 4. This upgrade is free and can be done via these 4 steps:


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

IN ANY CRASH CASE PLEASE DO THESE!!!
If you see CUDA errors follow 1,2,3,4.
1- Try different drivers, some of them could cause instability issues. Do a clean install while doing this to be sure previous files completely removed.
2- Check gpu frequency. Overclocking would cause instability issues
3- Check PSU. Insufficient power output would cause instability issues
4- Check the free amount of GPU's VRAM and system's RAM while working. Low VRAM will/may cause CUDA errors. Be aware of some generator objects will have different triangle count in Picture Viewer than Live Viewer. It’s like “editor/render” parameter. Just try to use same value. Also try to optimise your scene for polygon count, even use smaller images. Try to use Octane texture nodes rather than using C4D texture/shaders.
Alternatively, use V4 and Out-of-core(OOC) function. Increase RAM for OOC and It should not exceed physical RAM amount. Check TDR value and increase if it's necessary.
5- If you see C4D crashes without CUDA errors, then send us bugreport.zip, screen-shots and video capture to show process and crash moment. Also please send us a sample scene in a format of C4D or ORBX to let us investigate and test it. Alternatively, try to delete/hide some objects/materials until crash gone away. If you find what's causing crashes, send us a sample scene to let us for
investigating and bring a fix or solution.
Thanks for helping the development by your feedbackst! It’s impossible to quickly catch every case without user feedbacks! It’s the same procedure as other companies do like Maxon/etc...

You wished, we did. Core engine has been heavily modified, not an easy process. Thanks for patient.

V4 is free for V3 users. You should use both as I know.

Great work as always, Ahmet!!!
Thanks a lot!
Could I ask only one thing, that I wanted already to ask some days ago?
Is there a way to improve navigation around sample in preview mode?
Something like in standalone, with navigation around object.
Thanks in advance for replying.

Cheers
