    Can anyone help explain whats happening to my render? Weird black ‘box’ showing up in LV and PV. Tried swapping scenes and kernals, updated octane c4d and drivers but still remains. This only happens when I use network rendering

    Hi Andy,

    Why are you using arnold(Ai) light in an octane scene?

    Hi Michael,

    No its the Ai light thing in octane settings, as far as i understand when activated, it alters the sampling rate for individual lights in the scene, raising or lowering to make the render more efficient. So not sure why that would cause a box in my render, unless there is some issue with that process being completed via the network, even though Ive not seen that before!
