OctaneRender™ 3.0 for Houdini™ - production build 3.08.1.0

Hi!

This is the latest production build of OctaneRender™ 3.0 for Houdini™ compiled with the Octane 3.08.1 core. This release is available for the Houdini 15.5/16.0/16.5 latest production builds on Windows x64, Linux gcc4.8 and OSX 10.11. This plugin is also compatible with Houdini 15.5/16.0/16.5 Indie. In this case, the plugin will have a 4k limited resolution while rendering sequences, and the scene export and cloud rendering features disabled.


Notes:
- Since we have to use CUDA toolkit 9.1 for that, you may have to update your graphics driver.
- This build supports all the new Octane 3.08 features, but be aware that the OSL feature is not ready yet. The OSL VOP nodes are there and work loading any osl file, but the GUI parameters and input pins for the osl shader are not available in the VOP nodes yet. At least a new 3.08 build will be available shortly including the final implementation of the OSL VOP nodes.

Really soon. I need to finish first the documentation updating, but the first plugin build with the Octane 4 core could be a matter of few weeks or less, at least with some of the new Octane 4 available features.

Until release you can still use ORBX export from octane rop>load orbx in v4 stand alone >activate denoiser in imager or any new feature into v4> boom click render.
Just tested and working like a charm.

ORBX export doesn't work with the Indie version of Houdini :(

Yes, sorry, this is Houdini Indie limitation for all the third party renderers. In any case, I hope to release the first plugin with the Octane 4.0 core really soon ;)

Hi,
Is there still a limitation on exporting ORBX with FULL SCENE RELOAD enabled? Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks

Yes, sorry, currently you only can export animated .orbx files in update scene mode. If you want to export the scene in full scene reload mode you could export the scene frame by frame (creating a .orbx file for each frame) using a script or an external render controller. I'm not sure how useful is to have a .orbx file for each frame, but this is the only solution for scenes that can't be updated.

Thanks,
