There is a giant ad on the front page and it says stable, but as I just found out in the Lights, Camera, and Render Class, the Octane X version is not holding up for people with the most powerful setups. What is happening with this, why is so bad. By listing it as stable it seems like OTOY is saying good luck but we do not care that you're paying for something that does not work. I get it is not easy but it would be easy to list what it has in development. Apple pushed this as a big deal to get people to buy their Mac Pro, I feel like they tricked me.
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.
