I need help / Re: Corona 1.4 crash on render
« on: 2016-09-13, 22:59:51 »
Resolved : go to C:\Users\_username_\AppData\Local\CoronaRenderer and remove the content of the CoronaRenderer folder (you should see DrData folder and various .txt files in there).

I've seen not really appealing reviews on the Z10PA-D8, i will have to check it out... Are you owning one of those ?

Some EVGA PSUs are manufactured by super flower (g2 series). Looks like they produce some good stuff. So i choose that one (10 years warranty):

I trust you for the case, i'll go with the Define.

These ECC RAM modules are the cheapest i've found:

I'm not decided yet for the CPUs as I'm not very confident to buy those from Hong Kong (ebay). I'm gonna wait a bit to see if there are other opportunities in europe.

Again, thanks a lot for the help, i would have made a couple of mistakes without your advices !

What a specific question. I think you will have to test it out and compare the rendertimes to get an answer..

nothing new on the ticket since my last post.

With assert build, i've got this error :

Thanks Juraj for the advices ! i'm not very familiar with server stuff..

I thought ECC was not absolutely required... I will have to check further for that.

650W would fit quite well IMHO. I tend to use properly sized PSU as:

_PSU efficiency is better near 100% 50 % load
_Futur upgrade will probably need less power than actual components (don't need multiple GPUs for now)

I like Corsair, Seasonic for the    reliability. Don't know about EVGA, i will have a look. Two 4-pins = 8-pins total ? Or do i really need 2x 8-pins EPS ?

For the case, you must be right, I was trying to lower the price, but there is not that much difference. Z10PA-D8 seems to have a fairly small form factor ( ), I thought it would fit.

That one seems to be quite low-end motherboard. What do you think about it ? Should i better go with Z10PE-D8 WS ?

Found these RAM modules :

Awesome renders ! Such attention to details !

How many time did you spent from start to finish ?

I have to admit that i'm not really reassured with the idea of bying these from China...
It comes to the same thing as bying ES or QS processors, i'm not comfortable with the idea.
This the main blocker for me. Does anyone has ever tryed to buy one of these chinese OEM chips ?

Hi !

I'm actually looking to build me a good workstation to start as freelance and i would like to query your help. My old pc rig is aimed to be used as a spawner :

i7 2600k OCed to 4.3GHz
16 Go DDR3 1600 (4x4GO)
MSI GTX 770 2Go
2x 1To HDD
1x Samsung 840 128Go SSD

I don't have a hudge budget to build the workstation, so i was looking for cheaper ebay OEM processors. As far as i know, OEM processors are quite close to the retail versions so i'm pretty confident to use these on a daily basis. Here are the specs of the workstation i'm actually looking for :

2x e5-2683 v3 oem processors (tot. 630€)
8x crucial 8Go DDR4 2133 ( 64 Go non ECC, tot. 292€ )
1x Gigabyte G1 gaming 1070 6Go (499€)
1x Asus Z10 PA-D8 (400€)
1x Fractal design Arc midi R2 (100€)
2x Noctua NH-U12S (tot. 130€)
1x Corsair Cs-650M 650W 80+ Gold (90€)
1x Samsung 850 Evo 500Go (163€)
1x 1To HDD from my old rig (0€)

Total PC rig cost: 2304€ (VAT included)

I'm actually trying to build the best machine to work comfortably with the corona interactive mode at the cheapest price. To get an homogenous "farm", i'm thinking to upgrade the old Rig with 64GO of ram as well.

What do you think about this build ?

Are OEM processors a safe bet or should i invest in something else ?

Ok, i've done it. Thanks

I need help / [solved] Corona 1.4 crash on render
« on: 2016-08-25, 22:06:45 »
Hi !

Everytime i hit render with corona 1.4, max crash. If the scene is empty everything is ok but as far as i put any geometry, even primitives, it crash. I got no problem with corona 1.3.
Does anyone has ever encoutered this issue ?

Tested on Max 2016 and 2017,Win 10, same issue.

Edit: Max and Win version

yup, that looks very promising, especially when it comes to energy preservation. But it looks like it should be quite intensive in terms of calculation. Would like to know Ondra's opinion about it.

I posted this in another topic ( but i think here is a better place.
I found this today. It might interest you guys, if you have not seen it yet

Hey, you deserve some beers for bringing this topic up again again, doesn't seem like it gets much attention : / ...

I have some BRDF changes prepared that would allow removing the roughness mapping. But they can result in worse image in some situations. I managed to sneak them in one daily build without people noticing, so maybe it will be ok ;)

Something like this :) ? ->
