How do I prevent Blender from exporting the emitter object

I'm just experimenting with emitting particles as objects, but I don't want the emitter to render. I can't find a way for octane not to render that plane.
Any suggestions?

Make it 100% transparent?

Wouldn't that make all the children particles are transparent also?

No idea but that actually sounds probable. Would you be able to hide it off screen somewhere without goofing things up?

Unfortunately, no. the emitter has to be where I am introducing particles to the screen, which happens to be right in the center. bummer.

You can assign different materials to your emitter and your particles. Unfortunately, making an object completely transparent seems to cause Octane to randomly reassign my visible materials the next time I reopen the scene. I was able to remove an emitter from a boids simulation by baking the particles and then deleting the geometry of the emitter in edit mode. However, this doesn't seem to work with other (non-boids) particles. Deleting the geometry -even after baking- repositions the particles.
