OctaneRender 2018.1 for LightWave Beta build 2018.1.0.6

Hi,

This is a new beta release of the OctaneRender™ 2018.1 for LightWave™ plugin version 2018.1.0.6, available for LightWave 11.6, 2015.3, 2018.0 and 2019.0 Windows x64 and OSX. This build has been compiled using the Octane 2018.1 RC6 core.

As with all experimental releases, please do not use this for production purposes. 2018.1 RC6 will expire in 60 days

New features
To learn more about the new features and improvements of OctaneRender 2018.1, please check out the 2018.1 release post, but this a quick list of the main new features that have been added:

  • NV Link support on RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti
  • Cryptomatte. Currently, in the LightWave plugin, the Instance ID is used also as Object ID due to its internal scene graph architecture.
  • Vertex Attributes in the mesh objects. New options in the Octane object properties custom object plugin to configure the attributes to be extracted.
  • New "Color Vertex Attribute" and "Float Vertex Attribute" nodes to retrieve the vertex attributes in the shaders.
  • Deep render passes.
  • Way less Volume Render Noise. New option in the kernels to disable this feature if the matching of the Octane v4 volumes is needed.
  • Direct Levelset surface rendering. New option in the Octane volumetrics custom object plugin to configure the OpenVDB rendering to work with SDFs and assign their Octane material nodes.
  • Scatter depth limiting (i.e. fast fog rendering)
  • Overall 5% faster than V4 stable (about 315 OB vs 298 OB in our tests)
  • Vectron (Vector Primitive)

The Standalone 2018.1 RC6 version for the network rendering nodes is still not installing the render deamon, so network rendering is still not availaible :( :( :( :(

Hi Juanjgon, thanks for the update!
That bug of the third UV set stay the same way.
And about spectron volumetrics?

Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out how to support the new volumetric light feature in this plugin. I hope to have it ready for the next build.

Thanks,

I have reported it to the core devs, so yes, I suppose that it will be fixed at some point in along the next couple of builds.

Juanjo, could you please just confirm that there's no way to have the render nodes working in this version with a regular license ?
I don't know if I'm missing something obvious :D

I think that the Octane installer somehow doesn't have the network daemon files, but they are there in the .zip release, can you please check it?
