New features
To learn more about the new features and improvements of OctaneRender 2020.2, please check out the 2020.2 release post, but this is a brief list of the main new features that have been added.

FEATURES AVAILABLE IN THE LIGHTWAVE PLUGIN:
  • Improved RTX performance.
  • Fast Spectral Nested Dielectrics.
  • Denoiser support for the new NVIDIA Ampere devices.
  • New chaos texture node.
  • Improved color correction node.

FEATURES STILL IN DEVELOPMENT:

  • OpenColorIO Management, Display and Export (OCIO profile). Configured from the "OCIO" environment variable.
  • OpenColorIOColor graph nodes. Look, Profile and View nodes
  • Integrated multi-scatter from volumes or surfaces. Available in the Octane OBJ spare parameters.

Release Notes
=============================================
RELEASE 2020.2.3.0
=============================================

* PLUGIN FEATURES AND FIXES:


- Multi-thread scene extraction. New option in the plugin options panel to enable/disable this feature. This feature is limited to 64 cores, or to a single CPU in dual-CPU systems with more than 64 cores. The F9/F10 preview window will be frozen while processing the scene extraction.
- Fixed a problem with the chaos texture transformation parameters.
- Fixed a crash while working with objects whose name starts with "("

* OCTANE FEATURES AND BUGS FIXED:

- Brought back the dialog that allows retrying activation when the connection with OctaneLive has failed.
- Fixed bug causing moving instances to disappear when subframe start would be set to 100% in the animation settings.
- Fixed crash when an OSL shader has two outputs.
- Fixed crash when an OSL shader has a struct as input parameter.
- Fixed render failure when rendering a preview of a toon material.
- Fixed render failure when texture displacement is used on a mesh with no UV coordinates and RTX is enabled.
- Fixed AI denoiser on macOS by updating cuDNN to version 7.6.5.
- Fixed volumetric spot light cutting out geometry with a material priority less than 0. This is because the volumetric spot light had a default priority of 0, so if the user tries to set the scene geometry with less than 0 priority, they will be cut out.
- Fixed rendering of fake shadows of nested dielectrics that have SSS.
- Fixed missing attenuation if a toon material is indirectly visible, e.g. behind some tinted glass.
- Fixed material opacity not using the correct opacity when using mix material inside a layered material node.
- Fixed incorrect reset of material layers if a mix material gets changed and is used inside a layered material node.
- Fixed incorrect rendering of Vectron nodes with object layer / material map nodes if connected to an OSL texture with an _sdf input.
- Improved performance in some scenes with a scattering environment medium when using RTX.
- Fixed portal material being non-transparent to shadow rays.
- Fixed clamping of HDR input values in the color correction texture.
- Fixed CUDA failure when rendering toon materials.
- Fixed incorrect rendering of toon materials with opacity < 1.
- Fixed CUDA failure when vertices of a mesh are moved around in quick succession and RTX is enabled.
- Fixed broken auto bump of vertex displacement if dirt is used in the material as well.
- Fixed missing render update if a toon ramp is modified.
- Fixed superfluous geometry updates when an input of a volume node got changed.
- Fixed specular transmission "leaking" into the indirect reflection render pass.


Happy rendering,
Your OTOY Team

Any benchmark about the multi-thread scene extraction time improvements while working with large production scenes is welcome ;)

Thanks,

Thanks!!!! This multi threaded extraction is something that takes things to a new level. It will save hours. Great job.

Well done Juan, you know my results ;) but just for sake of conversation here, I have 3-5x speedup in midsize scenes and some scenes even 10x due many cores CPU now finally doing some work :).

Great work, thank you for your effort this is game changer for LW scene extraction waiting/times.

Thank you very much for one more update Juanjo.

Sorry for my ignorance.

What does (Priority) do in the Transmission / Misc tab?

I did not have the opportunity to check if this function came out in previous versions or in this one.

Grateful.

Thank you for the update.
Unfortunately the Multi-thread scene extraction crash my LW immediately. It isn't a big problem for me, my scenes aren't so fat and I can disable it. In any case I ask if it is only a my problem or if it happens to someone other.
I know, it is my fault, I still working on W7 so I can use only game driver, but maybe this isn't a problem of nvidia driver, but SO.
Bye

Thanks for new release. But I also got crashes, but not only with this function enabled - many of my scenes that ran without problems on the previous release now regularly crash.

Test uses a single 16k rasterized LW procedural as well.

Old Octane opening IPR for my heavy DDG ship scene: 4min 25s. New Octane:28s.

F10: 2m 6s. New Octane:28s

Holy Hotness! And yeah, frame to frame all cpu cores are jamming now.
