round edges with mixed materials

Hi,
Is there a way to get round edges to work with mixed materials?
I have diffuse and glossy materials with round edges set to the same value, when they are connected seperately the round edges renders fine, but is disabled once they are mixed with mixed material. I need the diffuse for transmission and glossy for reflection.
Any suggestions/workarounds?

Thanks
Yaniv

I am sorry. I think that this is a known limitation of Octane in all the plugin and in Standalone. It seems that the round edges feature doesn't work with the material mixer node.

Hi,
I was thinking maybe it would be possible instead to add transmission and medium options in the glossy material, that way at least in some situations i could have round edges with medium/transmission and reflections.

Thanks
