Yay OSL!! This is an awesome update. :D

One question though, on the metallic material, the specular map is the same as a metal map? It's what I usually use to separate out the dialectic parts of the texture from the non-dielectric parts. Both 3D-Coat and Substance call this texture a metal map if it is what I'm thinking it is. :)

That is correct, specular map is exactly the same as metalness map.

Love all the new material and OSL additions in this release.

As a feature request, could allow adding textures to the volume shader. Like adding a noise map to the density channel. It will allow for a lot more flexibility. It doesn’t need to be fast but the option would be nice to have.

Please use the feature request system for new feature requests or support already existing ones so we can have an estimate of how much support there is.

Thank you.

Two questions:

1. Will we be able to use vray car paint metal flakes etc.

2. Can we create procedural textures with OSL like wood, asphalt, concrete? If yes do you need to know programming or can we buy them somewhere?


Thank you

Can we get an overview of what the differences between all of the new specular shading models are? From the tiny thumbnails, I don't much difference, although i'm sure there are.
Intel i7-3930K, 64gb RAM, Asus X79 Deluxe mobo, 2x EVGA 780 6gb (for rendering), 1x PNY quaddro k4000 (for display)
Windows 8.1 x64, Maya 2014, Octane Render v2

Yes!

A technical explanation would be much appreciated!
