Okay so like most newcomers, I’m doing [Blender Guru] Andrew Price’s beginners tutorial series. I’m on part 9, last section, and trying to setup the IPR settings as he has done. Exactly as he did, precisely as he did. I did it multiple times to make sure that I did do it right. I did.
HERE IS THE PROBLEM:
The Device menu [Render section under the Render tab] stays grayed out. Yet weirdly enough I can choose either CPU or GPU… I have CUDA selected, with my GPU, under the CCD prefs. I made a render to see if there was actually a difference, but there were no changes in time with the same sampling amount. I assume the settings are thus pseudo-active? So I’d like to be able to have this section light up and see the actual effect.
What the settings look
like as of currently.
MY SYS SPECS:
Blender vs.: 2.78c
GPU: GeForce GTX 650Ti BOOST
GPU Drivers: Latest update installed [I double checked before posting this]
OS: Win 10 Pro
I’m hoping that someone here can help me. An ordered step-by-step guide/tutorial to fix this would be appreciated greatly (if there is even a fix).
I don’t know if this would help really but I have used GPU rendering with C4D - i.e. Octane and Vray and Redshift.
Please let me know if you need any other details. I tried to give as much info I thought would be of use.
Thanks a million in advance.
