viewtopic.php?f=7&t=72241

NEW FEATURES SINCE LAST RELEASE

Upgraded to 2019.1.5
Enhanced the OpenVDB feature
Added missing options (velocity scale, velocity grid type, motion blur. . .)
Supported to customize absorption/scatter/emission/velocity grid id as SA
Fixed VDB volume renders as black box(SDF type) issue
Supported Octane Output ("Property - Output - Octane Output") as it is in SA
Supported to customize "Octane Export Mode", "Export File Format", and "EXR Compression Type"
The export results are put under the "Output Path"
Supported Mesh Type Optimization("Property - Object Property - Octane - Mesh Type") for final animation render
Avoid duplicate transform updates for objects that are not Movable
Avoid duplicate mesh data updates for objects that are not Reshapable
Added a new experimental "Auto" mesh type to detect and apply the optimization automatically
e.g. it can detect and apply "Reshapable" rules for the objects that are used as smokes
It's an experimental feature to help users get rid of the manual mesh type assignment. Please let us know if there are any cases that are not covered and handled incorrectly. We will keep on its improvements.
Optimized mesh updates in viewport preview
Removed redundant uploads for meshes(except meshes that are reshapable, modified, or in edit mode)
Supported Global mesh type
Supported object layer settings for Orbx proxy
Supported to use texture value for gradient texture
Supported to customize the OctaneDB texture cache folder("Preferences-OctaneRender-Octane Texture Cache Folder")



FIXES SINCE LAST RELEASE

Fixed some issues in Orbx Proxy
Fixed the volume render issue
Fixed render issue of the group nodes with multiple outputs
Fixed crash of texture reference
Some other fixes merged from the latest 21.3

Thanks Lino.

Tried to install OctaneServer Prime from today's upload but keep getting some errors. See screen shot attached. Do you know why?

EDIT - Working now. I restarted my machine and it may have been caused by the older version running in background. All good!

Hi, I'm working with the latest stable, there is a lot of server crash when I try to copy/paste or hide/unhide object when the viewport is in rendered mode. Here is the link to the file where the crash happens (the crash happens not only in this file, just for investigation):

https://www.dropbox.com/s/phn71astrhs4lem/industrial%20living_octane_crash2.blend

Step to reproduce the crash: open the file, go to rendered view mode, select one object, and then isolate it with Numpad slash.

My spec is:
- Ryzen 5 2600
- 32GB RAM
- RTX 2070 SUPER
- GTX 1060 6GB (display)
- Windows 10 build 1909
- NVIDIA Driver 441.66
- OctaneRender for Blender 2019.1.5 - 20.7
