Daz Crashes While Canceling a 'New Window' Render?

A new -- and quite disruptive -- problem just cropped up.  I normally do an NVIDIA IRAY render with 'Render Target' set to "New Window' in the Render Settings tab -- so I can manually cancel the render, then save it, when image quality reaches a desired state. 

Only today -- on multiple render attempts -- as soon as I select 'cancel' to stop the render, Daz immediately crashes, closing my rendered image window before I can save the image.  Heck of a way to lose about six hours of crunching on my graphics card.

A new Daz bug?  A lack of technique on my part?  Fixes or work-arounds?

Thank you!

  • Have you tried a newer/older driver for the graphics card?

    Thanks Richard,

    Yes -- had the problem both before -- and now after -- installing the latest studio driver from NVIDIA.  The crash is also happening if I just let Daz finish the render without cancelling: I get the error message saying Daz must close the instant it completes it's last iteration.  I would say the crash occurs on at least half of my render attempts now. 

    This is a definite show-stopper.

  • Is it a crash straight to desktop or do you get the crash dialogue? I wonder if it might be a folder issue, related to writing the temp file or the thumbnail for the Render Album (which I suspect is done after stopping the render).

  • I get the crash dialogue every time.  Rendered files are saved to a dedicated folder on the C:/ SSD Drive.  The problem just surfaced seemingly 'out of the blue.'

    Have you updated Windows or GPU since the last time it worked properly?

    Edit: NM, should read better, lol. Have you tried to look at the log file to see if it is giving any helpful info?

    In that case please save the report as a zip from the dialogue and attach it to a forum post.

    There's definitely something strange going on, on top of scruffy having gone to bed...

  • Thanks, PerttiA -- but I have no idea how these anomalies came to be, or how the word "scruffy" gets into a Daz URL.  

    I've tried a System Restore -- and so far, the crashes seem to have gone away.  Still watching carefully.
