Can Octane auto-collect all the resources my scene uses (models, materials, textures)? Smth like "pack a scene" ?
Or do I have to do it manually?

Suv


as far as I know there is no such auto functions, so You better start packing =p

Too bad.
So everything has to be in the same folder where the Octane scene is?

Ahhh, RayTracey, I see you are in... a couple more questions:

Is it CET or CEST?.. I am Eastern Time US.. and trying to figure out when my deadline is.. CET seems to be 6 hours ahead of me.. so my deadline is 6pm Eastern US tomorrow?

Can I put my zip on my site (server) and email a link to that address you gave?

I have never packed up an Octane scene and opened on another computer... does the scene use relative paths from location of OCS file?.. or does everything need to be in one folder? -- as you can see, I have a rather complex scene.. certainly that would suck if you to went to open my scene and find that it is looking for stuff in my Octane_Bench_Competition folder on my H:\ drive....

Could all participants to the competition email their scene to [email protected] (subject "OctaneBench competition entry") by 1 October midnight CET?

Cheers


I checked all my email accounts and NO ONE can handle file sizes of 60MB!!!
So I will NOT be able to send the file per email!!!

So what are we going to to about this?


If your scene is too large to email, you can PM me the file.

Correct.

Yes you can.

That shouldn't be a problem. What matters is that all the textures and geometry are there (and the .ocs file of course), but make sure the scene works as expected in OctaneRender standalone 1.2.

No, unfortunately you cannot use materials that require the LiveDB, because the benchmark is built upon the demo framework and has the same limitations.

Damn, I think i used one or two. :)
Didn't know that material already in the scene still needs a permanent connection to DB.

So, if I use LiveDB, my project file will require licence and internet connection. Am I right?
But I can collect all textures in project folder. C4D integration can do it.

Not sure if it still matters, but you're actually able to use the LiveDB materials. If you save your project, it should work just fine in the demo version.

The competition is now closed, we want to give a big thanks to everyone who participated. With no less than 28 entries, this competition has been a huge success and it was entertaining to see how some scenes progressed to their final state. The winner will be announced next week.

Cheers!
