I’m having problems with rendering in general now. I thought that it might be down to the denoisers but I have uninstalled both the Intel and the NVIDIA ones.
Apart from occasional hard crashes I see renders that complete immediately and look like this:
If I try to render in the viewport it sticks (perhaps forever, I haven’t waited long enough to know if the render ever completes). This is what I see:
I ran another test and saw a Cuda error out of memory just before I saw the checker pattern like the one shown above.
This is the current state of my GPU and shared memory, taken after I saw the error
I’m going to watch the memory as Rhino loads the shaders and meshes onto the card.
This is my current system memory status:
Ran the test again and saw this:
So I can’t account for the CUDA memory error.
You will need to give me a link to upload the file. It is too big for the forum software to accept.
I also want to mention that I upgraded my VRay a week or two ago. I don’t know if that is just post hoc ergo propter hoc or if it has any significance.
I see to get one or two renders out of Rhino before I have to restart.
In case it’s not clear: I saw the cuda memory error on the render window status bar.
I render at a custom resolution: 4096 X 2160 (Rhino never remembers this - I always have to set it anew when I open Rhino).
Well, that was true but I opened the file on another computer and it remembered the setting. I might not have installed VRay or the denoisers on that machine. I’ll check after my render has finished.
