I am a Cinema 4D user and have a Titan card but it has an issue when reaching the GPU RAM limit, instead of automatically switching to CPU TFD often crashes. My question is do LW users have the same problem, i.e it is card/driver issues or are you not having this issue so it is the c4d plugun. Note the Titan has 6GB RAM and is not dedicated to TFD, so i am not sure if the issue is with the large ram amount or even the fact that the card is shared.

Lightwave has the same issue. It's nothing to do with C4D or LW. It's an issue with NVIDIA CUDA code. Jascha has been working with their dev-channels to attempt a resolution and has fully detailed the issue to NVIDIA. Nothing has come-of-it, sadly.

The best thing to so is monitor the GPU sim. When you have about 1GB remaining, manually switch it yourself.
