OctaneRender™ Standalone 3.06 TEST 4

Hi all,

This is hopefully the last test release of the 3.06 development cycle, mostly tweaking the new features and fixing as many bugs as possible. You can find a detailed description of the new 3.06 features in this thread.


Changes since version 3.06 TEST 3:

  • Added a general shadow pass, which shows all direct light shadows that are calculated on the first bounce. This includes sun light, but excludes sky light or texture environment if importance sampling is disabled or the texture environment doesn't consist of an image. The reason for this limitation is that those light sources are not included in the direct light calculation and Octane doesn't shoot an explicit shadow ray and with that can't calculate a shadow.
  • Adaptive sampling tweaks: Transparent pixels stop at minimum samples and the value range of the expected exposure matches now the exposure of the imager node.
  • Merged the greyscale, spectrum and normal texture evaluation into one function. The texture evaluation adapts to the correct texture fetch mode depending on the use of the evaluated texture. As a side effect, you can now add normal textures and also multiply them with a greyscale texture.
  • Triplanar map textures can now be nested.
  • Fixed default name of the triplanar projection node and changed the default name of the triplanar texture to "Triplanar map".
  • Trying to improve error messages when the sign on fails.
  • Fixed crash in PMC when the maximum samples have been reached.
  • Fixed a deadlock when rendering is stopped while tone mapping is in progress.
  • Fixed issue that rendering won't restart if you stopped rendering during deep pixel binning.
  • Fixed broken falloff texture in the texture environment.
  • Fixed missing updates of the texture environment when importance sampling is enabled.
  • Fixed info passes / info channel kernel on Fermi GPUs.
  • Fixed output directory if render passes are exported as separate PNG files.
  • Fixed odd file numbering in the batch render script.
  • It's now possible to use subscription and non-subscription licenses on the same machine. Please note that the type of license required is still depending on the type of build you are using.

Thanks so much Marcus & Co!

Edit: I have been playing with General Shadow Pass and it is almost bringing tears to my eyes... like an effing dream come true. :shock: This is the shadow pass I have been yearning for!

THANK YOU GUYS!

Works nicely, many thanks :)

vijay_thirukonda, in continuation of our conversation. This picture is correct?

I just lowered the noise threshold during the rendering, lowered it from 0.1 to 0.01. This is 3.06 t4 version.
It comes out that the noise threshold is achieved in direct light longer time than where only global illumination and where only global illumination, the noise threshold is reached sooner? How is that possible?

Could you please post the scene with the settings you used? And did you use network rendering? Thanks.

Could you confirm that out of core is working on the nodes since I can't get it to work on all versions in the last 6 months. On local GPUs it works but on nodes it throws errors that out of core ran out of memory.

abstrax, hi! Any settings do not affect this bug. This happens with the default values and if the sampling parameters are configured differently.
This bug is the same in direct lighting and pathtracing kernel. Network rendering I do not use. The last time the settings were:

Here's another strange picture:

05.jpg

Where direct light from portal, noise threshold is not reached for some reason.
