This is first and QUICK build of the plugin with EXPERIMENTAL 2020.1-XB1 SDK. I'm making this release to offer first RTX BUILD asap for letting test it. Also C4D noises are disabled until 2020.2 SDK.
Do not forget there are some uncompleted features and DO NOT USE for jobs. And OSX builds are not yet available. Any feedbacks are welcome for development and fixing the issues. Enjoy it!
This is the matching Standalone: OctaneRender™ 2020.1 XB1
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 419.xx or higher and if you are working on Mac OS that has 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- Use NVIDIA STUDIO drivers, not Game Ready versions. If you have stability issues 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 the same value. Also try to optimize 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 feedbacks! It’s impossible to quickly catch every case without user feedbacks! It’s the same procedure as other companies do like Maxon/etc...
Changes of 2020.1-XB1-Test2
- Performance improvement: Multi-threading support for material creation on sending a render. Activate it by Settings->Other->Multi-thread for materials
- Missing first clone of multi-instances
- Avoid lags due to unnecessary updates for VDB object under cloners
- Performance fix for vdb object for viewport
- Detection the animation for C4D noises
- Fix: Custom lut strengthWINDOWS ENTERPRISE BUILD (R15-R21)https://render.otoy.com/customerdownloa ... t2_win.rarWINDOWS SUBSCRIPTION(Studio) BUILD (R15-R21)https://render.otoy.com/customerdownloa ... t2_win.rarOSX ENTERPRISE BUILD (R15-R21)OSX SUBSCRIPTION(Studio) BUILD (R15-R21)Requirements:-You'll need to update your Cinema 4D to latest versions(R16.050, R17.053, R18.057, R19.053, R20.057, R21.022). Otherwise, the plugin will not work and not appear in menus.
-Internet connection for activation, be sure that C4D and Octane will not be blocked by the firewall and any antivirus software.
-Nvidia drivers at least Nvidia Studio Drivers(minimum 435.80) and be careful with latest Game Ready drivers which can cause cuda errors. Stay with stable one for you.
-Cuda 9.1 driver for OSX.

First, remove all octane related stuff from plugins and the main folder of Cinema4D.
Extract all files to Cinema4D\plugins\c4dOctane directory.
Also, download manual.zip and extract to c4dOctane directory if it's not available in place.
There are a few files for each one is for different Cinema4D version. Remove all except the file is for your version.
Ex. if you have Cinema4D R18.0, keep only "c4dOctane-r18.cdl64" and delete c4dOctane-r17.cdl64, c4dOctane-r16.cdl64, c4dOctane-r15.cdl64, etc..
