Hi,

This is a beta release of the OctaneRender™ 2020.1 for LightWave™ plugin version 2020.1.0.1, available for LightWave 11.6, 2015.3, 2018.0 and 2019.0/2019.1 Windows x64 and OSX. This build has been compiled using the Octane 2020.1 XB2 core.

To use Octane 2020.1, you need to have a Studio or Enterprise subscription license. We recommend you to update your NVIDIA driver to at least 435.80 for Windows or 435.12 for Linux.

As with all experimental builds, we advise to not to use this release for production purposes. We can't guarantee that scenes saved with this version will be compatible in future releases, and we anticipate there being several maintenance releases.

New features
To learn more about the new features and improvements of OctaneRender 2020.1, please check out the 2020.1 XB1 release post, but this is a quick list of the main new features that have been added. The features not listed here, like the new universal camera node, will be available in the upcoming builds.

  • New option to enable the RTX improvements.
  • Spectron Area and Sphere light types.
  • New Hosek-Wilkie Spectral Sky Model.
  • Improvements to Round Edges artist control.
  • SSS Improvements and Random Walk SSS.
  • Spectral Hair Material.
  • ACES: new workflow and Image Container File Layout
  • Volume Step % and Shadow Step %
  • Volume Sample Position Displacement
  • New Universal Dirt System

Awesome...great...cool.

Sorry, after upgrading to 441 I am still not able to render large scenes.
Rolling back to 431 solves it, and thats renders RTX unusable.
NVIDIA only supplies 431 or 441 on their website. Anyone has 435.8 available?

This is no fun.... half my system will remain barely used (2x 2080TI).

Anyhow, Happy new year for you all!

Thanks for release Juan, this will make more Bug testing for 2020.x easier now when it's in LW plugin :).

Random Walk SSS is pretty cool and easy to use.

Have you updated the NVIDIA drivers? Nobody else has reported a problem like that. Do you know if Standalone 2020.1 XB2 works fine in your system?

Thanks,

Does that happen for you in every scene or ?

I tested 5 of my older scenes to test RTX speedup and they rendered fine. I use 441.66 studio drivers.
