We expected that RC4 would be the last release before stable 2018.1, but we came across a couple more issues and we wanted to implement sheen and coating bump/normal mapping as well in 2018.1. We would like to release these and gather some feedback before we commit to releasing a stable version.
Important: Studio builds now only supports 1 GPU, and no network rendering.
As before: 2018.1 and its XB and RC builds will only be available for customers with a version 4 license while 2018.1 is not yet stable. To try 2018.1 you need to upgrade your version 3 license to a version 4 license. This can be done for free via our web shop: https://render.otoy.com/shop/upgrade.php.
Changes since OctaneRender 2018.1 RC4:
- Fixed "affects alpha" option of specular materials when "keep environment" is enabled (fixed the refraction pass being included in the environment in this case).
- Fixed caustic blur for clearcoat.
- Added sheen and coating bump and normal texture inputs.
- Renamed artistic IOR mode from "Default" to "Artistic".
- Implemented sheen and coating bump/normal mapping.
- Fixed visible on specular for universal material.
- Fixed specular material rendering incorrectly when given 0 roughness and Octane BRDF.
- Fixed node to nodegraph comparison in Lua API raising an error.
- Fixed vertex attributes causing a render failure when used with SSS.
- Fixed float vertex attributes causing render failure with displacement.
- Fixed planes sometimes getting rendered black if there are more than one.
- Fixed crash when opening import preferences for unsupported VDBs.
