Hi Rick,

This configuration looks ok. Is your computer still less responsive with this setup?
CPU – i7 8700k 4.8Ghz + 64GB RAM, GPU – 2xGTX 980 Ti,1xGTX 970
System – OS X 10.12.6, Windows 10, Octane 4, Blender Plugin 16.x.x and 17.x

It seems better, but even though I have this setup, typing this message with a Render preview going is really slow.


I think I need to tell my Nvidia software to have Google run through the 970.

Also, the file I was having the most trouble with uses a few particle emitters. But it seems happier now.

Does it happen the same when you render in Standalone?

Just test it and observe if the system lags too while rendering in Standalone.

Will give it a go. A bit later, though.

Again,
Thanks for your help, JC.

Hi JC,
Can't get to the Standalone now as I am working on a deadline.

In doing so, getting booted off the Render Server over and over during Render Preview when editing.

Sequence:
edits with Preview
Lose Preview
Z key
restart OctaneRender Server
Z key
Shift+Z Key..

Somewhere behind the Blender interface, if I view my desktop, I can usually find the "Error binding socket......5131..." message.

Big hassle.

Any help? Much needed, thanks.
Rick

I've never had such error.
Check this out. Maybe this helps:

Hi JC,
Blender is not crashing.
The server is dropping the connection, mainly during edits to a model or shader.
The error message is basically hidden unless I minimize Blender.

I don't think anything else is sharing the port.
I do have Octaner Render for Carrara, but it is not running when this happens.

Did you update your GPUs and motherboard drivers?
Can you share the scene for a test?
