Ouch. This really hurts. You have an advisory board already... 80,000+ strong. You really, really should listen to them first. And you should have held off announcing this bs until after you at least gave us the next Release Candidate. You likely just made a large chunk of already angry artists completely furious. Faux pas. By posting this, you have not helped strengthen your case that you give a rat's ass about the artists that you built this little empire of yours upon. And clearly the features these thousands of artists are begging for have been put on the farthest back burner.

Here is some advice: Get your head out of The Cloud and get your ass back in the kitchen.

EDIT: Have had a major change of heart - since update announcement. :oops:

Keep some perspective guys. It takes more than feature requests to make and keep a company going. Otoy looks like its trying to stay strong and you do that by getting advice from really smart people.

The problem is that behind Otoy there isn't Steve Jobs and his money.
I don't understand why Weta is not interested in Otoy.
I remember that Mud box was developed in Weta then was purchased by Autodesk.
People that work with renders and professional pipelines can understand wha is necessary in Otoy.


why should they choose otoy? there are lots of rendering systems also they can create one inside weta. Otoy should deserve it. When you look at Arion's gpu renderer features they have the whole features people want from otoy. Even they dont get Arion why should they choose OTOY?

NOW i understand, why so many collegues of mine, retreat from Octane. I was wondered why! Now i understand!

Guys.........sorry. Many month NOTHING and then THIS. It feels like a bomb for me!

I can´t read anything about :-render engine improvement
-implementation of features users wanted
- when 1.5 will be ready.....or at least IF we will now even get it.
-whats the sense of this post or what you wanna tell us with it!

Cool - you have now many rich people on your side - Congratulations. But what does that mean. Will Otoy go to a new direction and will we, the users who helped to build up and improve the render engine, now be lost? Sorry - to me it sounds like that!

3 Month ago i asked a collegue of mine, why he decided for Vray and Arion. His answer was: I am not sure, how long Octane will last. I dont think very long! They make too often the wrong decisions! - 3 month ago i laughed about him, now i am not laughing anymore!

Just my thoughts to this Post

Regards Chris!

Can we get an answer from OTOY? It's almost annoying ...
I remember the old days where Radiance replied very quickly to any question. :roll:

yes we need displacement, motion blur etc...and be sure they will sell it to us.

But the game is bigger than that now.

Very few artists are also good entrepreneurs: An advisory board of big tech names helps Otoy bring in capital from investors. Capital helps to cover development costs. Better funding for development hopefully improves their products (Octane and Brigade). What looks like a frivolous expenditure is really a move to secure funding for the company and improve its position through high level contacts.

1.5 is at the door
the artists, though, are on the floor
they're panting and paining for a new release
or at least for some responses, please
but Otoy's announced a board to parade
and forgot about some of their promises made
when Jules let some cats out of the bag
the board will make sure they impose a gag
perhaps Otoy's slightly lost the plot
great company great board
but the artists... forgot

Oh I just know 1.5 is gonna be delicious!
