Drawing Life 1 Pixel at a Time
Good information Ken.
I was having artefacts with the Parrot and Woodpecker when rendering in Octane. But I played with the settings and found that reducing the Ray Epsilon to 0.01, the artefacts went away and everything rendered fine. I thought it might be useful for you to know.Unfortunately they do...BUT this last weekend I reworked the 4 Waterfowl models, carefully adding a little more space behind the transparency layers. While it hasn't solved all the SF issues, I think they're minor enough to let SF users have them and let them decide what's showstopping (A little post-work will fix the worst issues).
I haven't come across this too often, but it does happen. I usually start by abbreviating part of the file name if I can. I hate having to fiddle with the path.When Windows is talking about the "file name" being too long, it might be referring to the filename PLUS the path. I think the official limit is 260 characters. However, you can change it in Win 10 apparently

Or, shorten something along the offending path
