OtaneRender™ Standalone 3.08.4

Hi all,

This is probably the last bug fix release of 3.08. For a description of the new features of 3.08, please read the new features thread.


Changes since version 3.08.3:

  • Log flags can be activated via command line options (-D flag=value or -D flag).
  • Octane prints now a warning in the log if the environment variable CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES or CUDA_LAUNCH_BLOCKING is set. The effect of these is that not all GPUs are visible, causing rendering to be slower.
  • Fixed loading of Y/chroma EXR images.
  • Fixed sampling of the specular Beckmann BRDF.
  • Fixed incorrect recording of contributions of diffuse surfaces in the diffuse passes if they are behind specular objects with "affects alpha" enabled.
  • Fixed crash while changing the import preferences of a geometry archive of which we use its camera for rendering.
  • Fixed crash or incorrect normal import of subdivided, deformed meshes (see viewtopic.php?p=346199#p346199).
  • Fixed incorrect alpha weight of beauty passes causing noisy, aliased edges (see viewtopic.php?p=345594#p345594).
  • Fixed incorrect transition of the shadow passes to the background and between active and inactive layers.
  • Fixed crash when editing a string input pin without any options, or one which isn't connected to anything.
  • OSL: Fixed detection of derivatives (Dx and Dy intrinsics) which are not supported.
  • OSL: Fixed missing motion blur when an OSL camera is being used, which could also potentially crash the kernels.
  • Lua: Fixed print() for node graphs.

Hi, I just tested new C4D release with 3.08.4 core, and I still see wierd alpha blending with Black Shadows pass.

Here is image attached. I like the way 3.07 created Black Shadow pass where the shadow was only there where it needed to be.

Currently it produces such Black Shadow pass only when Importance Sampling is Disabled on Environment Texture

Hi,

I am loosing my Activation status several times a day, which forces me to Sign in, recompile and restart my work, is there any way around this?
I am using 3.08.3.

Thanks

Hi,

This has been fixed, and we will do another point release.

Is there known release date? I was told that this fix will be avaliable in this release.
Our team is already waiting for this fix for several months and for projects with Black Shadows we need to downgrade for rendering propper pass and we had already made a lot of projects with 3.08 features.
Is it possible to make quick release with this bug fixed? Since we do a lot a lot of works that use this pass.

Probably tomorrow. It will also be fixed in the upcoming 4 RC6. Apologies for the hassle.
