Hi all,

The Blender 2.67.1 r56693 have a big bug with Cycles GPU with importance sampling (environement but maybe also all importance sampling) that freeze the computer, need to hard reboot with reset button. No error message, just freezes with importance sampling GPU.

My config is I7 860 // 16 Giga ram // 2x Zotac Geforce GTX 670 4 giga // driver nvidia 314.22.

If you want other information that can help to solve it, contact me.

Hope can help to fix,


ps : the fast plane for gpu is just amazing for hairs :wink:

Hi all,

The bug was solved in this build :

Here is a test build with osl = Cycles_Hair_Shader.Win7.x64-56921
The build has the default cuda kernels 2.0, 2.1, 3.0 using toolkit 5.0
Great work on the shaders BroadStu
