I have a question about the Vertex and User Data Attributes:
Can someone show me how to access the vertex attributes in a shader. I have exported a test geometry with vertex color attributes. But I can´t find a vertex texture to map it to the material. I expected to find it under "Texture" "Geometric"
If its OSL. Whats the syntax to get the info into the color?

Thanks in adavance!

As a result of the OSL specification , to use a vertex attribute on a mesh, you need to match the type and name of the attribute in an osl shader (ie create a osl texture node, and make an input with the same name and type). Then make sure you disconnect the input node created on that pin.

We'll try to add a node that will do that.

FYI currently vertex attributes are not imported from ABC yet.

The new vectron stuff looks interesting. But I have a question. It all looks code based. Will there be ready made nodes that we can directly use to do stuff?

Like take a volume sdf and directly connect a texture to displace it. Right now I'm using the displace node from the example file. Or the volume boolean stuff. It would be nice to have this as ready-made nodes and not something I need to copy paste code for every time.

Rohan


We will have some built in yes, and probably some also in live db.

But it is like some fake with cone object? When you inside this cone, volume disappears.

And I think it is a little bit cheating to show us a demonstration of this effect with Diffuse and Specular depth = 1. Ofcorse render is fast, but who use Diffuse and Specular depth = 1?


There is a new setting next to those two called scatter depth - it is global now but the plan is to make that part of each light volume if possible so it can be customized. In any case yes the faster volume speed you get a form to scatter depth 1 or 2 is a big help in any scene


But the question was about Diffuse and Specular depth, not "scatter depth".
And about the camera inside the "Cone" Volume object.

I understand that marketing is very important for you. But it was very clever to snow in Octane 2018 presentation power of new Volume Light only at this point, that is favorable to you. And not showing us the side view, where we see the cone object and view when the camera is inside the cone.


The medium should work even if the camera is inside it. We'll look into it.

We could add some more. If you have some code, you can implement any kind of noise in an osl node for vectron to use.

Seriously, I see some great and awaited sutuff here, what a beautiful surprise !

This said, I meet an issue with a image texture, it is rendered completely blue, though it contains several colors (blue, red, yellow, white and black), will investigate to try to isolate the context.

What it should be :

What I got :

When you have some time, please send a small test scene if you can. Thanks

Ah thank you very much. I was trying it with ABCs :-)
But I did not get any result with FBX either. But then I do not know how C4D names the Attribute at export. It was worth a try. At least I know now how Vertex Attributes work with OSL in theory. Its worth something :-)

It's unclear whether we should upgrade now and take advantage of the 25%.


Could someone answer this question please?

You can stay on monthly subs at 19.95, and that is as it has always been although with V4 you get up to 20 GPUs instead of 2 max.

Now - at the same monthly rate - but paid annually, you get all access to other DCC plug-ins, ORC and more, plus this annual rate is 25% discounted through BF - making it 14.99/month over the year.
