@Omar Emara (OmarSquircleArt) : I tested a little bit and I can open my blend-file with blender-2.81-da25aca2677e-windows64. So the code that generates the error was integrated into blender after that version.

@Omar Emara (OmarSquircleArt) I saved my files with version blender-2.81-4c4a8bf588c5-windows64 I downloaded last friday. I think it is a buildbot version from thursday night. With the todays build I can´t open these files.

Any news on this?
If the combined Pass is always stored within the output file when not needed, it is a big waste of harddiskspace when rendering lots of animations and passes. Also compositing gets much slower when loading larger files.

Marcus Papathoma (machieb) added a comment to T67219: Cycles commandline rendering quits with CUDA error - when using two graphics cards.

I think it must be some CUDA problem, that If the second GPU (in my case the GeForce GTX TITAN X) that is also feeding the displays makes the commadline render to fail.
As mentioned above, If I disable this GPU in the blender preferences from CUDA, commandline rendering works fine.
But if I open Blender and render the same file within the application, I can enable the Titan X and it renders fine.

It´s very annoying, I can´t commandline render with my computer because commandline rendering quits, when using all graphic cards.
I think there are more people out there who have more than one graphics card?! I bought the second one for faster rendering in blender!
Do you have any ideas how to solve that problem?

Had the same Problem last week at home.
I was viewport rendering with cycles. Had a volume shader and connected a noise texture to the volume shader density inputs.
Then suddenly flickering of one monitor the other monitor switched off completely. Then after a few seconds blue screen of death with the above message.

I then updated my graphiccard drivers but had a blue screen of death again in blender.

Sorry was something on my machine. I tested older Blender Beta Versions and files that where working together a few days ago. So I asumed that it has something to do with my machine. I have two grafics cards in my computer. In the nvidia control panel I changed the option "OpenGL GPU" to automatic. In Blender in the cuda panel in the preferences I switched off one gpu. Rendering works, then I enabled the gpu again. So, sorry for my report!

Marcus Papathoma (machieb) added a comment to T64953: Cryptomatte - File Output node is messing up the multilayer exr, so blender cryptomattes are not working in the compositing app Blackmagic Fusion 9..

If you have viewlayers, the file output node is the only way, to render them to different multilayer exr´s.
Otherwise every viewlayer and pass ends up in one multilayer exr. If you have to rerender one viewlayer, you are produceing new content not able to delete old renderings wihtin the multilayer exr.
In Blender it is then also not possible, to write only cryptomatte to a seperate exr-file, because without the file output node the combined pass is always written to file.
For me the FileOutput Node is very important when rendering viewlayer! Otherwise you have to render every viewlayer after each other, setting new output settings after each rendering. Thats not very efficient!
Is it not possible to make the fileoutput node the same behaviour than the regular output?

My problem is as mentioned in the description, that if I use a file output node in blender the cryptmatte informations in the multilayer exr change, so they can´t be read by the compositing app Fusion.
If I render without an output node, everything works fine in Fusion.
So my assumption is that the file output node changes IDs or metadata?!

Marcus Papathoma (machieb) added a comment to T64953: Cryptomatte - File Output node is messing up the multilayer exr, so blender cryptomattes are not working in the compositing app Blackmagic Fusion 9..

Yes maybe the plugin in trash but I think the fileoutput in blender should be the same, if you use a fileoutput node or not.
Comparing the metadata or the exr-header may show what is different amongst the two outputs.
Otherwise if you have many renderlayers you are not able to render them into different files if you want to use cryptomatte in another compositing app.
Look into this thread https://blenderartists.org/t/cryptomatte-is-here-amazing/1132013/
People have problems using cryptomattes from blender cycles in all the other compositing apps (Nuke, After Effects, Fusion).
Sorry, but the blender compositor is no alternative if you want to make highend compositing.
Today I testest cryptomattes from blender in After Effects. With the free ProEXR 2.0 Plugin it works fine but I need a node base compositing software.
I also tested Natron. The cryptomatte implementation in Natron works, but if you use aspecific nodes like glow together with the cryptomatte keyer, it crashes.
There are sample files from the cryptomatte inventor Psyop, which you can download from their githup page together with the cryptomatte plugins for nuke and fusion and they work fine.
So something is wrong with the blender cryptomatte implementation, maybe not following the standard as thought by Psyop?

Tested the above file. Everything works as expected in the todays build.
Opend the file.
Only changed a few small things in the scene. Lowered the Cryptomatte Levels to 2 because as I know you only need a higher level if the object/material count reaches a limit so not all matte infos can be stored on one cryptomatte layer.
Added a reroute node to connect the viewer an the composite nodes.
And I set the View Transform in the Color Management tab to Default, otherwhise you don´t get a real black/white mask. You can try, set it to Filmic and see how the mask gets grey.

Marcus Papathoma (machieb) added a comment to T60462: Blender 2.8 (various versions) crashes in GPU animation rendering (many card types), both eevee and cycles.

I had the same problem last week. One of my files cashed at random while rendering in cycles. I tried rendering on CPU only but it crashed too. It was impossible to reproduce. Then with an older Beta version of Blender 2.8 it rendered.
I will have a look on it. I have to render a lot in the next weeks, maybe I can reproduce the problem or it is solved already.

Can repruduce, with todays build, blender crashes!
Open the default scene. Go into the light properties. Write *2 behinde the 10W in the Power settings. Press Enter. Crash.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) has done great work lately on visibility. Maybe he can have a look, if this task is hard or easy to establish?!

It would be great to have the abilty to have different collections vissible in different viewports! The way with the viewport vissibility override is great, an so it gives the Collection Visibility popover a reason to exist!

Very nice, when will it be implemented in Blender 2.8?

Marcus Papathoma (machieb) added a comment to T60419: Delete Hierarchy - To delete a hierarchy takes very long.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) : I tested another production file with linked data. Sorry we don´t use amatures in our big production files, so I couldn´t test that usecase.
In the tested scene there are 8893 objects and I deleted more than half of them (4850objects). Without the optimization it took 1min:58sec and with your new code 1min:26sec.
I saved and reopened the file and couldn´d find any problems or issues.

Marcus Papathoma (machieb) added a comment to T60419: Delete Hierarchy - To delete a hierarchy takes very long.

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) : Thanks for your answer. As I wrote in the description, I tried to create a simple scene that mimics the scenes we use every day in our company. I can´t send you a 2GB blend file with client data. Therefore a used the default cube subdivided it and used the array modifier to create an amount of objects, to get an object count like in our scenes. The other rows of cubes were only linked copies, to hold the filesize low.
As brecht wrote it is apparently a limitation of the blender code architecture, that deleting takes a lot of time, if you have a high object and polycount in a scene.

I have a similar problem with denoising.
If rendering with the cpu denoising happens.
If rendering with the gpu denoising doesn´t happen.
If rendering in mixed mode (GPU+CPU) only the tiles rendered by the cpu get denoised.

@John (jfraser): I testest it at work. My computer there is a AMD Threadripper 1950X 16Cores@3,4GHz 64GB Ram using the build from yesterday.
Now I tested it at home. At my desktop Intel Xeon E5-2697v3 (2x14Cores@2,6Ghz 128GB RAM) it takes about 12seconds deleting the hierarchy using the build from today and the scene from above.
