    Hey yall,


    First time using octane, and whenever I try to click the render button I get the error message "There is no CUDA device which is selected..." How do I fix this. I'm using C4D r19 and octane 3.07. My specs are


    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900K CPU @ 3.6Hz 


    32.0 Gb ram


    64 bit operating system, x-64 based processor



    No mention of a CUDA enabled video card?

  2. The only thing I know about monthly v annual is monthly gets fewer GPUs.  They may have sent the settings as is because they don't know any better. On the forum , use 'optimization' as a search term. The documentation also covers it well.

  3. Vis-a-vis render times, I'm glad I have a GPU render engine (Octane). The refresh rate allows quicker edits. My old dual Xenon is too slow for animation so I port it to Maya using CD FBX (which he designed for the purpose). Making edits with a much faster view response, I then return to C4D for rendering.

  4. I got my terminology wrong. Sweeping a circle on a spline is my intention. I think I understand your instructions now. So this sweep is applied after the edited spline is created?

  5. Many thanks, gentlemen! I'll try the helix on the barrel but a simple image for the cable. The cable, separately made I assume by a loft on a spline? Then "spline wrap it onto that first spline" seems like performing the same function twice.

  6. I want to animate a cable shortening and possibly winding on the winch. A Loft can make a nice cable but any ideas for how to fake it lengthening and shortening?2019-03-02_1439.thumb.png.036523d511651c76180f0722a6f3628e.png

    Modeled in 3D-Coat and rendered with Octane.

    OMG my customer doesn´t like the look of peach hair.

    He "simply" wants soft edges on each individual hair.


    - Fresnel doesn´t work on complex structures

    - Rendering individual hairs and blur ther Alpha Mask in AE doesn´t work cause Hairs are sometimes in Front and Back of another Hair at the same time

    - He don´t like Peach hair

    - glow doesn´t match the color of the Hair


    Please help me - Its an easy effect which has to be possible. Or isn´t it?

    (Blur edges of overlapping complex Objects)

    A very careful Blur in PS might give what they want.

  8. Without actually checking, you have SSS in Glossy and Difuse materials but not in Specular.  Mixing materials in Octane is also quite common.  It allows a block of jello to have a Diffuse powdered sugar coating that partially conceals the Specular jello.

      It's strange how octane does not have a material that can have a diffuse and a transparent on at the same time. 






    The color in a transparent material is connected to the Transmission channel.
