Are the objects all the same? If so - you could use a csv to scatter/instance them. Or load one object, set the Octane material, save it to the Poser Material, then duplicate the prop multiple times - then the Octane material will be loaded for each copy of the prop.

Poser has no provision for selecting multiple objects - so there is no way to select all your objects then apply a MAT pose. My suggestion would be to save the Octane material to the prop, then save that Poser material as a MAT pose. Then use some sort of 3rd party Poser addon which will load a MAT pose for multiple props.

Yuo could create a function so that if I were a objet parent to all objects and importassi a shader (. poe) he applies to all objects related? Just shaders or shader + textures or only texture ;-)

I think that would be complex to implement.

IMO this is better done by saving the Octane material to the Poser material, then saving as a MAT pose, then use one of the other Poser tools available to apply that MAT pose to multiple objects/materials. Then you just "Reconvert" the scene materials to Octane materials and they are copied.

Sure, its more easy found a way with poser materials ..
but my request is for octane shaders (livedb material)
many octane shaders have many parameters different or not compatible to poser

If you load a LiveDb material, then "Save To Poser Material" it saves those nodes into a separate "private" area of the Poser Material, which still gets saved which you save that Poser Material as a MAT pose. So when you reload that MAT pose for something else, the plugin will use that Octane material saved with the Poser Material.

Hi

I'm not quite clear if you are copying/pasting from the Octane plugin Materials tab, or from the Poser Material room? Are you able to explain in a little more detail what you are trying to do pls?
