Okay so I looked around and found out that the 850M isn’t in the standard Kernels used by blender. I read that the sm_50 kernel should fix it so I added it to my scripts/addons/cycles/lib directory.
The cycles reference image starts building BVH files or something but I can’t see what the error is in that one little line there at the top of the render screen. It has something to do with CUDA or some such.
So two questions:
- What the heck is that single little process line at the top of the render window and how can I make it bigger or dump it to a log of some kind so I can actually figure out what’s actually happening??!?!? (Where it says Frame 5)
- Any suggestions on what build/Kernel or what have you I need to get Cycles GPU rendering to work with a GTX 850M?
