Pz3 files will conserve Octane mat sets on another computer?

I've a licensed Octane computer (main computer) with a Poser scene I was working on. For personal reason I won't be home for a while and I'm using my laptop. On my laptop I don't have an octane license but I installed all octane plugins and program files.
If I open the scene on my laptop, I edit it and then I SAVE IT will this pz3 file scene conserve the material settings saved on the other licensed computer or not? Will I lose every setting? :cry:

I want, when I'll be back home, to have the scene ready for rendering on my main computer without the needing for meddling with all the materials parameters again.

If you have the Octane-Plugin open, when saving a scene in Poser (*.pz3), all the Octane-Plugin parameters will be written at the bottom of this saved *.pz3 file.
So, imo, if you transfer this file back and forth, to different volumes/hdd/ssd .. etc ... the same Octane data will be transferred along with it, as it's a part of this *.pz3 file.

I think you will need to authenticate Octane on your laptop in order to do this. I believe you can use your license of either machine, as long as to shutdown Poser on one machine before starter Poser on the other.
