graphics card question

Postby david_h » Wed Oct 03, 2018 10:31 pm

I just had a new Graphics card installed on my PC here at the office.. . and when i went to a project i was working to do a test render, the Interactive REnder settings in Thea no longer worked. Just black screen. The other settings such as such as Unbiased TR1 and IR Adaptive (and bear in mind. . .I don't know what any of this stuff means :mrgreen: ) seem to work okay, but I never use those. I use the interactive settings such as MC and AO almost exclusively for my studies. When I go to Interactive. . .black screen only!

Is there somebody who has had experience with this? any thoughts?

thx in advance

David

Have you updated to the latest CUDA drivers?
You can also try setting Presto to only use the CPU.
If that works you know it has something to do with either th GPU or the drivers.

Pixero. . .I had no idea what any of that meant but I did go into Thea Preferences and looked around switch the CUDA drivers (?) to . .. something. . .else. . .and it worked! so

Tack Pixero!
