ha! he caught last train
thnks again for answer and link - I contacted them and will see what next
hi, and thanks for the replies. I tried to search on github ... I can't find anything! it is not possible that amd does not release the old plugins too! please help me. I'm as angry as you are. but did you manage to solve the problem? have you tried the old plugin before the last one?
until yesterday it worked like this
o.k - since I have just got mail from amd tech support - and they redirected me here on forum once again. I just hope this problem will not go ''bouncing ball style'' - from one place to another/ tech supp. to forums... as I said - as a last measure - I will try to reinstall whole thing just if any - possibilities not to do that since it's a pain to do that if it could be avoidable
yesterday I also wrote to amd technical support they assigned me a ticket ... let's see ...
i tested radeon pro render 2.7.2 on my small laptop acer nitro5 -i5- nvida gx150 (gpu not certified) and it works perfectly with 3ds max 2019.
it makes me angry that a render engine for amd doesn't work with its old or new gpu.
if you find information about old plugins tell me. amd has removed all old links on github and more. this makes me angry.
ps: I keep writing here as a guest because captcha signup doesn't work. I think it's a poor b2b platform.
Well amd official support wrote me back and redirected me here - david s said it would be passed to developers to see about current problem... so just have to wait to unroll the situtation... Maybe the will reditrect you too here , don't know...
Agree as you said - render engine from house where their cards originated from but - maybe max got messed because microsoft updates - who knows, or it's just my system got messed somehow ''magically'' ...
As for earlier versions - they should make a history repository for older versions but it's theirs decision... your best bet is amd support = if they dont give you satisfied answer contact them again... not much to say sorry
I don't think it's a max or windows problem.
and I definitely don't do a fresh install to try...
on my laptop it works perfectly and has the same versions of windows and 3ds max.
no difference except the gpu:
laptop -> nvidia gx150 (work);
desktop -> amd r9 280 (not work)
Maybe you're right for max not to be blamed for or win - I agree but, I'm not programmer so can not tell with 100% accuracy... I agree and suspect the same as you do, but don't know... just have to wait to hear from developers...
As for official support I think they should provide you with earlier versions of prorender to try... I guess...
