Licensing issue has been resolved apparently, thanks !

Also, what would be the go to place for questions regarding Embergen ? This thread ? Their forums seem to be a little desolate.

I played around with Emmbergen before and the speed is just incredible and wonderful. One thing I found very weird is that there doesn't seem to be an option to scroll through the timeline, there's pause/resume, one step forward and reset. That's it, unless I'm missing something. Documentation is also very, very basic, it's still in beta of course, but a good manual is so important :)

Really wonderful piece of software, so congrats to everyone involved :)

Just tried a few example files exported to VDB and they exported prefectly even with 3X upsampling - attached an example render.

First question. How do you start the export to VDB process? I click on the "Export" button but am not given a file selector box. Nothing happens. It's like the button is non-functional.

Second. Is it normal for the GPU to be at 99% even when the program is sitting idle? (2080ti)

Thanks in advance.

I think you have to click on the Export node.

I also have a high GPU idle even without a simulation occurring.

Thank you, Agendum. That's what it was.

I was using the volcano preset and it didn't have a simulation node so that threw me, but I have added one. Not sure if I connected it to the right place, but it's producing VDBs as I type. I should have known it was something simple I was overlooking.

I appreciate the help.

**EDIT

Yep, it works. But I really need to learn how to shade these within C4D to look like the rendered ones in EmberGenFX. Mine never look the same once I start trying to use the built in shader in the Octane VDB volume.

Hi,
I'm a little bit confused with license system.

If I Upgrade my legacy V4 perpetual licenses to 2020.x perpetual licenses (upgrade to OctaneRender Entreprise + 1 year annual maintenance --> 499.00 €), will I have access to all DCC plugins and to a full commercial license of EmberGenFX standalone at no extra cost ?

Thanks for your help...

Chris.

I have a OctaneStudio Subscription but it shows "Not Licensed".And when I go to RNDR.otoy.com still tell me I need a Subscription and sends me to the octane render website to get a subscription.
