New feature demo - unofficial exporter v0.90 - Blender 2.56

Hi Guys,

here's a quick and dirty demo made using latest exporter v0.90 I'm about to post in main thread.

The new stuff:
- background export : during animations, export of next frame happens during rendering of current one. This virtually eliminates all latency with exporting (except first frame of course).
- animated textures : images of type 'Sequence' are now accepted for texturing on all slots supported bu Octane.

And now the video, directly pushed from blender, featuring animated diffuse mapping on TV and animated bump mapping for the floor. Materials have not been modified in Octane, except tweaking roughness/specularity, but you could for instance turn the screen into an animated texture emitter (and it looks nice!).

Enjoy...

Definitely yes, it works very well. The trick is as follow:
- setup the animated texture for your emitter as diffuse in Blender
- render a still image (any frame, the exporter copies the appropriate image in the sequence to a unique name)
- turn your material into an emitter
- assign it the same image file as the diffuse (if original image was video0005.png for frame 5, you'll find a SEQ-video.png - this is the one you must use)
- save ocs
- start anim (you don't need to relink mtl, name doesn't change, the images are copied to same name by the exporter for each frame)

Have fun and don't forget to post your results!
