Yummy..looking forward to this one. Shame it's limited to using the octane node tree I suppose from a learning perspective this is a good thing but would love to see the option to translate into LW nodes

Well it's Octane feature and Octane cannot use LW nodes so it would not make much sense :)

Not Native LW nodes. I meant Octane/LW nodes.

From how it looks, we'll now be working with 2 different node trees. Lets say you download a LiveDB material but want to tweak it but chopping/changing existing OctaneLW nodes in your scene (say for example a colour correction node, gradient node, material mix node, or image texture node with gamma/brightness adjustments, OR a bunch of these nodes strung together... well you cant, they need to be recreated in the Octane liveDB node tree. And vice, versa

Can you edit the materials inside lightwave?

Sorry, I misunderstood you :oops:

Yes that is true but as it seems you can edit the LiveDB materials in 'Octane way', that should not be a big problem. Of course up to a some point but I also think that mixing those together completely would be very hard if not impossible - even for Juanjo :D

This is so great. I had to manually transfer the values from an easy material. I would prefer not having to do this for a more complex one. And I didn't succeed in accessing the textures.

I wonder how Juanjo did this. Does he use Octane standalone for the transfer? How does LW use these materials for the rendering then? Questions over questions :) But being able to edit the materials locally will be very important.

So can we store our own materials in the LocalDB?

Now you can load materials in LW from your LocalDB (stored from other plugin or from the Standalone), like from the LiveDB. I am thinking in a way to store the Octane LightWave materials created with the Octane LW nodes in the LocalDB/LiveDB databases.
