Save File Type Blank in SU Plugin

Hi.

Before I purchased the licensed version, I did download the demo plugin. As I recall, saving a render was not an option in demo-mode (or was it just a low-res, water-marked version?)

Anyway, I now have the stand alone version of Octane and the SU plugin. When I attempt to save a rendering, the "save file type" pop up window is blank. If I go ahead and give the render a name and save, a file with no extension is created. Double clicking the file just gets me the Windows prompt to ID the file type so it will open.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

(20 minutes later . . . )

Ok. So I went back and renamed the file with a .png extension and everything is copacetic. But it does seem like a rather odd workflow . . .

Hi mate,

Which build of Octane4SketchUp are you using? This was a pretty old issue which should have been solved by now. It you enter the name without the extension then ".png" should be added automatically, but I'll double-check that tomorrow.

Thanks

A-ha, that's why.

Update to the newest version and that will solve the issue
