Render Failure

I downloaded 431.70 yesterday and it didnt work..

 

The thing is i started upgrading everything BECAUSE Octane started going crazy and not the other way round.

 

Do you have any idea if i should MANUALLY connect the GPU to Octane so that Octane can use it when rendering? if you notice in the above GPU Z info i shared, its only using 3% whereas the CPU has 70 degrees temperature and using 9 GB. I took this GPU Z when rendering using Physical not Octane cause Octane literally isn't rendering anything for more than 10 seconds.

 

You can't "connect" your GPU to Octane. Octane takes every available GPU in your system anyways, or at least the primary GPU.

What you can still do is go into your Octane settings and see if the GPU is even recognized correctly, but I doubt it isn't because it IS rendering if I understand you correctly.

If that doesn't help, well, maybe the folks over in the OTOY forum have another idea but the next step I would take is uninstalling C4D completely, deleting the entire C4D folder inside your appdata folder, reinstall C4D and reinstall Octane as well. You can also try completely uninstalling your driver and then using a driver cleaner to get rid of the last bit of the driver, then reinstall the one you want to use.

You can also check if all your hardware is seated in the motherboard correctly and clean the RAM and PCI-E slots with some canned air.

And if THAT doesn't help, last resort, reinstall Windows (use the built in factory reset tool in Windows which is basically the same as just wiping your HDD and reinstalling it).

 

After that, well I guess your card is dead / damaged. After all your PC is only 2 months old so RMA should not be a problem.

Super draining and time consuming all this running with technology, i dont know how 3D artists dont go crazy 😅

 

Im gonna have someone come over and try out a new GPU on the spot, if it works and everything goes back to normal then i guess mine is damaged and i get a new one. If not, the folks at OTOY really must provide an answer as i dont know how else to move forward with this.

 

Thanks a lot for the help! Will definitely keep it in check.

I'll be honest with you, I haven't had any issues on that level with my hardware for years 😅 I guess you're just unlucky, sorry.

Good luck with getting this sorted out, please update if and what solved the problem.
