Hi,

Is there any way i could set up the camera and render with Octane to have a 6 sided cube map texture ?

Thanks,

Interesting question, i'd like to know answer too, so like 360 camera but cubic layout.

- Create rendertarget
- Go to the camera on the RT and change it to "Panoramic camera"
- Change Projection in the Panoramic camera to "Cube map (+x,-x,+y,-y,+z,-z)

Hey all

I have a followup question.
What is the projection is just -x -z +x +z (meaning no top/bottom). can that be done in one frame? or I would need to render each slice separately?

thanks in advance!

Elad.

That option does not exist, so you would need to render multiple times, or render with top/bottom and cut them out in post.

Hello,

otherwise you can make an equilateral 360 with the Octane panoramic camera, and then you can use https://github.com/dariomanesku/cmftStudio

to change it to a 6 sided cube map texture .

cheers
