Octane currently doesn't support visbility options, so it is not possible for the plugin to add this feature. Of course as soon as Octane support it I will add visibility options to the plugin.

Plugin support near all features of Octane Standalone app, fully integrated inside LW. This is going to be the 1.0 version release, of course there is a lot of work to do along this year in the 1.x cycle and in the future with new releases, but I think that plugin is now ready to be used in production and to be full tested.

You do mean 1.0 Beta version release? or are you skipping to final for full price?

Yes it will be a paid-beta ... the 1.0 beta is going to be released at reduced price like the other Octane plugins.

New video that show the IPR navigation functions. User has a 2D camera pan and zoom, a 3D perspective view and a 3D target view that include realtime target update after select one object and realtime object tracking.

In this video you can see that Octane and LW Native rendering can work together in the same scene. Octane material nodes has a LW material input that allow shading the surface in both LW and Octane engines.
