The first time I used Octane for Rhino6 it worked just fine. Today Rhino 6 won’t open. It gives me an exception error related directly to Octane.
What should I do about that?

@Eric_Clough start Rhino WIP in Safe Mode and disable the Octane plug-in, then contact Octane regarding the problem. They’ll probably need to release a new plug-in.

Thanks Brian,
Rhino 6 is working now. Octane is not but if I save as Rhino 5 I can use Octane there so all is well.

@Eric_Clough, what did the error dialog say?

Hi Steve …
With a completely fresh install of both Rhino 6 and Octane for R6 it works the first time and the next time I get the first message below. Rhino won’t start.
After another install of Octane I get the second message … Rhino works but Octane doesn’t

Thanks; I was curious to see if there is something in those messages that were related to the core Rhino product. I’m not seeing anything that would help me fix any problem in Rhino so we’ll have to see what the Octane folks figure out.

More info …
If I reinstall Octane R6 each time after I have used it then Rhino 6 opens and Octane works. But Octane has to be installed each time before the next Rhino 6 use.

Thanks Steve

ok, new place for focal blur setting.
but it also doesn’t seem to work anymore.
whatever settings I try - no effect :joy:
just me?

Just wait for the upcoming wip, focal blur should work, per view.

OK, but now THIS.
