I noticed 3 small issues:
1. In the surface editor, the shaderball only appears correct if you have octane nodes connected.
2. In the node editor for surfaces, the "surface" node doesnt show the shaderball correctly (the shaderball appears offset and cropped inside the alpha matte of a circle)
3. If you have a lw node connected to "lightwave material" input, the shaderball displays the lightwave surface instead of the octane surface
Thanks for all your hard work!

This MB is only a workaround until native Octane MB is ready in Octane 1.5 / 2.0
Yes, but am I right in assuming that if you increase the passes, you can decrease the samples? (Or whatever they're called.
So my thinking is, do a shot with now MB. Work out how many samples I need it to do, then divide that by how many MB passes I want.

Octane standalone works fine however the LW plugin is crashing layout (11.6) every time?? When loading a demo scene it says 'octane XXX plugin failed to start'.
When starting a clean scene and opening IPR ...Crash!

FrankPooleFloating wrote:Yes Juanjo.. absolutely! Please add it pal!
Most things you would replace particles with instances are usually pretty low-poly anyway. This should not be a problem. And I promise you J, if you add it, I personally will definitely use it. Even if renders take 4 times longer (which I doubt would be the case). I have been doing some animations with deformations that require full scene reload on every frame, and they usually take less than a second or so per reload.
And some times there are things, wicked-cool things like this, that some of us would definitely want, regardless if it takes a little longer to render. You can always have a disclaimer with a feature like this. This is available, but at a cost... A great example is doing rain w/ splashes (which I posted about yesterday, then deleted.. wanted to test some more to make sure). This is something that I would composite in AE. Rain (and similar effects that would use transparent collision objects - and alpha enabled) is something that screams out for this. There does not seem to be a solid date or Octane version that is going to have true Octane mb.. so if it is not tough to add, again, please do so.
Just did a test with an emitter shooting 18,000 poly hammers into the air at a birth of 1000 hammers a second.. takes less than second to reload scene. Granted, this is just the hammers and daylight system with pathtracing.. nothing else.. but even a semi-complex scene should reload quickly enough to warrant adding this. imho.
