Hi,

While working on all the new Octane 2020.2 features for the LightWave plugin, we are going to release a set of alpha builds to let the users work with the new Octane 2020.2 core and test some of the new features.

This is an alpha release of the OctaneRender™ 2020.2 for LightWave™ plugin version 2020.2.0.0, available for LightWave 11.6, 2015.3, 2018.0, 2019.0/2019.1 and 2020.0 Windows x64 and MacOS (CUDA). This build has been compiled using the Octane 2020.2 RC6 core.

Make sure to use a NVIDIA Studio driver with version at least 456.38 on Windows. No driver updates are required for macOS 10.13 (CUDA).

As with all experimental builds, we advise not to use this release for production purposes. We can't guarantee that scenes saved with this version will be compatible in future releases, and we anticipate there being several maintenance releases.

New features
To learn more about the new features and improvements of OctaneRender 2020.2, please check out the 2020.2 XB1 release post, but this is a quick list of the main new features that have been added.

  • OpenColorIOColor graph nodes. Look, Profile and View nodes
  • Integrated multi-scatter from volumes or surfaces. Available in the Octane OBJ spare parameters.
  • User generated compositor AOV passes for combining render and light passes in full a compositor node graph.

Thank you, Juanjo. And I have a question:
Integrated multi-scatter from volumes or surfaces. Available in the Octane OBJ spare parameters.
- great, but how it works?

This feature is not available yet. I'm still trying to figure out how to support it in the LightWave plugin.

Thanks,

Do you have the nvidia drivers updated to the latest STUDIO version available?
