I have been using this in production for a few weeks now and it is pretty amazing how fast it makes rendering interiors, There are also certain cases when you can use it for stylized renders but since there is no option to disable it on glossy or make glossy have more bounces it is near useless in those scenarios

Are tangents supposed to be that slow? they are horribly slow with a decent sized scene 90% of the render is just computing tangents before the render.. well over 30 minutes in some of our cases. And then the real render (Post synchronization) takes like 2 minutes

Is this behavior expected ?

Well do they at least know what they did in 2.77 to make it even slower lol
Does this mean no one is currently trying to find a solution?

Builds before 2/24/2016 are way faster on my Titan X

SLI is never ever on, The GPU was idling around ~300 MB before the render, after the render the memory climbed up to 1225MB of 3072MB cycles gave the error and reported it was using 1287MB which is more than the total usage on Nvidia inspector. Thats all I have for that certain situation I will see if I can eventually replicate it.
The 970 has 4 GB of usable ram the 500 MB is just slower.

I still think this is valid..

If you look at the image I linked I used a program to show how much memory was being used on the GPU so you can see the GPU only reaches 1225 MB of vram being used so it isnt that cycles is lying to us, it actually didnt make it to the GPU before it crashed.

Uploaded a test to our site and it definitely works. Thanks Guys! :D

In cycles the texture was half missing. As far as I can tell it was only at render.
We didnt see texture flickering in the view port (we always have it on solid shaded mode)

Here it is i did the pack thing lets hope it works. I was scrubbing through the animation (in the viewport) and saw a few flickers.
CPU and GPU render. the problem appears to be the view port which carries over to the render. give me a few and ill have the blend file up

OHHHHHHH snap im sorry that I am blind/retarded xD please forgive me supreme developer overlord master I am not worthy of your replies to my swill
Maybe you guys should say attach a blend in the description :P
oops sorry I accidentally reported this in the addons bug list.. I guess technically cycles is an addon :P

Just curious but why is this feature BGE only? couldn't it be enabled for everything in blender like Cycles and BI?

Ok haha well that makes sense :P
If i had a scene full of procedural textures like this it wouldn't be able to be rendered in view port but if i switch border on it could fit. Why is that?
Sorry forgot its in blender 2.73

That doesnt sound fun at all... Anyways thanks for the reply and keep up the good work! :D

Your SLI is on click this to disable it.
Maybe this is an SLI problem... Do you have SLI enabled in your nvidia control panel ?

lol sorry i was on this page at least 10 min before i posted. I had to make sure what i was saying was right (do some googling) :D im guessing it doesn't auto refresh ;)
@Thomas Dinges (dingto) isnt it possible to rename the sm_50 file to sm_52 and get it to work?

official drivers from nvidias website did the trick http://i.imgur.com/RS45xpo.png thank you very much :D
I always thought on windows all the end user had to do was install the driver... Ill install the driver from the nvidia website and let you know if that changes anything at all :D
Can that be acquired with a driver update?

i kept having huge performance drops when forcing aa with the nvidia control panel. but it only effected branched path tracing from what i could tell

@Lukas Stockner (lukasstockner97) would it be possible to turn 1 gpu in to multiple small tiles so it can be more efficient with tolerated error ?

i dont think they can play image sequences
@Lukas Stockner (lukasstockner97) Dude.......... I love you! <3

@Lukas Stockner (lukasstockner97) what are your plans after the full implementation of mlt
May 21 2014
@Thomas Dinges (dingto) I am 100% positive its glossy with roughness causing it. It does it on Beckman and GGX

@Diego Gangl (januz) Well i think the blender foundation tries to keep blender as small and as portable as possible if you are at the library trying to show off some work you don't want to install 3 different video players on the computer. All you would need is blender on a usb stick.
