I'm hitting a weird issue with some geometry objects I've created by .obj files imported from AgiSoft PhotoScan: they remain purple when rendered in OctaneRender (i.e. assigning the material appears to be failing?). The same geometry (although it is not clean by any means, it is a really bad quality scan in fact with holes) does not appear to have any issue when rendering with Mantra.
You'll find an example .hiplc over here (the .obj file and the texture file are found in the same folder, as well as a Collada version of the same geometry that is not referenced in the Houdini file):
