Hi Paul/Octane Team,
I have a complex issue to be resolved. Explaining it below step by step:
What I want to do
I want to animate a ring like product with 750 frames.
For that, I would create an object 360 degree rotation like animation through bongo and I would then export it with "Export Bongo Animation to OCS/ORBX" feature under Rhinoceros 3D Octane Plugin settings.
My essential requirement is to have 3 materials (ground floor+metal part of ring+stone part of ring) & 3 corresponding object nodes (I need 3 object node for lot of post processing and compositing pipeline).
What is happening
When I am exporting such animation, it is not only taking a huge time, but it is generating a very big sized .orbx and .abc files. I can imagine, this is happening because, Bongo is treating geometry for each frame separately.
Also, I am treating all my geometry has poly-surfaces as I need "Live Update" enabled for those geometries and requires object node for them.
Now, If I follow this method then off-course, I have 3 material notes and 3 object layer nodes in Octane Render Standalone after importing the .orbx in Octane Standalone, however the overall performance of further fine tuning the scene in Octane Standalone is not fast enough, due to heavy geometry stored in each frame.
What I am trying achieve
Now, the alternative way is to actually generate proxies for those 3 objects, which I already did and then I created the bongo animation, which at end has created a fast export to ORBX file, which is smaller in size and performance wise extremely fast in Octane Standalone. The only problem I face here is that, now I have only ONE object node in that geometry (that .abc file node I am talking about). Due to that single Object Node, I can not further do my post compositing pipeline easily.
How can I solve this problem?
Thank you for your support in advance.
p.s. I am using Octane Standalone Version: 3.06.4 & Rhinoceros 3D Plugin Version: 188.8.131.52
