Problems with OpenCL BlendLuxcore 2.4

Post by denon100 » Wed Apr 08, 2020 8:11 am

Hello,
when I set Blender to OpenCL in the render settings and set Rendered in the viewport, Blender freezes.
This only happens in BlendLuxcore 2.4, in version 2.3 I have no
Problems with the OpenCL Render Preview in the Viewport.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks

happens to me too.
i just give it more time than usual and it actually renders, in both viewport and render view.
mine seems to "stop" at the end of the exporting phase but after the freeze it goes on as expected.
maybe we have heavier exports now due to the new features added since 2.3, not sure.

for me, the task manger is the only thing left.
I will continue to use version 2.3.

Thanks !

It sounds like it could be the one-time kernel compilation, which takes a few minutes. After that, no further recompiles are necessary.
