GPU in Maxwell 4

Recommended Posts

I bought a GTX1080 a few weeks ago and I have installed the latest driver.  In the Nvidia panel I added Maxwell to 3D rendering.  Now if I enable GPU rendering in the Display panel and hit render it launches Maxwell Studio and then nothing happens.  No preview and no image.  If I switch back to CPU it renders fine.  What am I doing wrong?

Hi Andrew,

 

If you have a scene that renders properly with the CPU renderer, but not GPU, send information about your system, the MXS, and all dependencies to Next Limit for analysis,

They are a little slow to respond to say the least.  I was just wondering if I am missing something in the settings. Shouldn't it be as easy as just clicking on GPU in the display settings?

What about Fire?   Does the interactive render (Fire) work with the GPU?

Nope.  Still can't get GPU to work.  I just got a response from Next Limit support on a question that I asked on November 28th.  Today is Jan. 1st.  Not sure why they are so slow to respond.

Hi Andrew,

 

What do you mean about the Nvidia panel, adding 3D rendering? I don't think I have done this... (I have just switched to PC so Im a bit of a noob)

 

Cheers

If you have a Nvidia card you should have loaded a program from disk or online that has the Nvidia control panel.  Launch that from your program files or from the task bar and then go to -3dSettings-Manage 3D Settings-(this opens the window) and then click on tab that says Program Settings.  Under number 1. is Select A Program to customize- there is an ADD button you can click.  Then just scroll down until you see Maxwell listed.
