Rhino 6 Block Object Parents not rendering

I have a scene which employs a large variety of Blocked buildings. The brick materials of each block building however is unique so in Rhino I have set the material of each block to 'Object Parent' so that the layer of the block will determine the facade material not the layer inside the block. In Rhino this displays as it should but when I go to render in Octane the materials do not render as object parent but as the original layer that the materials are inside the block. Could you please determine how I can get Octane to recognise 'object parent' materials for blocks?

Octane Render plugin is:
4.00.0.101 on Rhino 6

Hi. Block Instances in Rhino convert to a Scatter node (https://docs.otoy.com/StandaloneH_STA/StandaloneManual.htm#StandaloneSTA/Scatter.htm) in Octane. Using the Scatter node means that every instance of the scatter node will have the same Octane material. You can introduce some randomness to the material via the Random Color Texture (https://docs.otoy.com/StandaloneH_STA/StandaloneManual.htm#StandaloneSTA/RandomColorTexture.htm).

Thanks
