Works great for me !! Thx
Hi all nVidiers, I a m just in the middle of an OS reinstallation and I got macOS 10.13.6 (17G65) installed. Beware all, seems there are no envidia drivers yet for this version which I guess includes the 2019-003 security update.

UPDATE and sorry for the bugging
10.13.6 (17G65) seems to be an old one but I am no not getting the option to update on the App store. Not even after rebooting several times...o_O

UPDATE
downloaded form apple secity update 2019-002. After running it all ok on macOS 10.13.6 (17G6030); updated envidia to 387.10.10.10.40.127 and CUDA to 418.163.
Now App Store showed security 2019-003, updated and all seems ok.

Finally on (17G7024) with nVidia 387.10.10.10.40.128

On a quick test Octane 4.04 seems to be running smoother than before. I am keeping denoiser deactivated though to avoid the related version system crashes I suffered and other users have reported.

Did the crashes happen during rendering and denoising or after rendering during denoising?

Hi, the machine would power off during rendering sequences of frames, so I guess it happended once it started “denoising on completion” of the frame. I think it is the same issue people mentioned in the otoy forum, the one related to memory saturation.
At some point I downgraded to cuda 387.178 because 9.1 is the one they recommend, maybe after my previous post?
I also increased the out core memory.

Something’s buggy anyway, I still get c4D crashes sometimes due to octane, and yesterday octane wouldn’t render (logging some cuda error). Uninstalling, and reinstalling CUDA solved the problem, I went with 410.130 to see how it performs.

I am new to octane don’t know my way through it that well, but i dont like it having duplicated setup for the same options (denoise on the camera tag, denoise on the plugin setup, save denoised beauty on the save menu...). I find it confusing.
