This is the recent project I have been on which was causing some of the crashes. Typically rendered in maverick but this one just seemed to work better in Octane.
Lots of SubD’s and really enjoyed using the Quad Mesh tool. I didn’t design the logo and took the designer’s vector file. Created a flat plane and ran it through quad masher and then off-set thickness. Or, and I hate to say it, had to go to Modo to ‘Bevel Outward’ the flat plane around the outside edge loop. We have to have this in V8.
The major logo elements were all SubDs from the start and not quad meshed.
Love the new toolset and was very happy to have items go back and forth to Modo without any issue.
