Hi to everyone,
Im using Blender 2.62 now with Cycles and had been very interested in Cycles rendering so I installed OpenCL 1.2 with all the drivers and download Blender 2.61 DEMO files from the Blender.org. I also configured the preferences (Render device) to use OpenCL and choose “Juniper” (GPU inside my HD5750).
Now about the problem:
Tried rendering the MikePan - BMW scene without a problem and with expected result which means CLAY render appears as mentioned in Blender manual - authors said that OpenCL is NOT finished yet and only CLAY is available with ATI so this was ok, but…
When opening any other scene Cycles computes the image in colours (NOT CLAY) so I think it means the CPU was used instead of GPU - also because the computing was MUCH slower. I opened preferences again but the settings was UNchanged … still OpenCL and Juniper selected. So I tried restarting Blender, load another scene etc. but nothing helps.
Looks like Cycles could work with my GFX card because the BMW scene renders without a problem but why the others NOT? Anyone knows?
The other thing is that I have installed OpenCL with some beta ATI drivers which comes with some additional files. In README there is mentioned that I have to overwrite some files in OpenCL install folder but … could someone tell me where da hell is the OpenCL install dir on Win7 x64??? I did NOT find it…
THX in advance - sincerely, Jan
