Hi Lee, tx replying. Attached is log file. I set it to output debug.log-win.txt

Also attached is the previous render log- a successful one.logsuccess-win.txt

On a mac it crashes at the same point, but says illegal memory something ( sorry not at that computer )

I have also tried optimising the file before rendering.

What is crashing? The render, or noice?

noice is a separate process that you run on the files that were rendered.

Or do you mean that the crash happens only when you enable Output Denoising AOVs?

Hi @Stephen Blair Noice - the seperate after you render is working. BUT I can t render a sequence to begin with - well more than a few frames. So its the initial MtoA render with the enabled denoise box ticked. Another odd thing is - the render viewport window that shows the progress of the render seems to show different AOV's - or at least some of them, in a cycle - render 1 is Beauty, Render 2 shows the Z Aov, Reneder 3 shows the Normal AOV , Render 4 shows Beauty, Render 5 shows Z Aov , and sometimes it shows the Variance AOV and so it goes ..... till it crashes :)

Normally - ie with no denoise output aov the render window just shows the beauty AOV.

Just found a mac log file

initializing 407 nodes ... 00:00:06 4229MB ERROR | signal caught: SIGABRT -- Abnormal process @Lee Griggs

if that helps.

Ok, so the crash has nothing to do with denoising.

The shifting AOVs is a known issue, but it doesn't cause a crash.

Impossible to tell why it crashes. Can you post a simplified scene that reproduces the crash?

Hi @Stephen Blair, link to file, and last 2 logs of test. The render sequence went for 45 min (the last log is crashed)

https://www.dropbox.com/s/2zjnzn9z4d9ia8t/Test_Arnold.zip?dl=0

If Arnold / Autodesk etc has a file that they know doesnt crash I m happy to test that if someone can send.

Hi @Stephen Blair, I have tested another scene on a windows mechine and received a error initializing 196 nodes ... 00:00:10 4788MB ERROR | signal caught: error C0000005 -- access violation.. I searched this and see there are other posts with this error - although you have said its a vague error. they all seem to be unresolved.

Just checking for a response @Stephen Blair - is there actually an official support system?

Do you have Arnold subscription and support?

Could be anything.

Try to isolate the problem. One approach is to enable all the Ignore options (Render Settings > Diagnostics). If you don't crash, then re-enable one by one until you do crash.

Another approach: start removing things from the scene until the crash stops. Then you have an idea of where the problem is.

Hi Ju Wo: I'm with the same problem here, and losing my mind to solve it. Did you find a solution for this? I don't find more information than your comments. Thank you!
