Itoo animation is not working

Well, another bug. Itoo animation tab is not working with this octane version. It seems that they cannot find a balance between no updating static itoo forest the next frame and updating animated itoo forest objects when we need them.
Even when animate at render time is off

UPDATE: 8.12 works and 8.14 doesnt.


This is their change "Fixed Forest pack unnecessary update on frame change."

Please fix it where animated itoo gets updated and static like grass doesn't. I think the issue with grass not showing up when camera is animated related to this bug

Hi coilbook,

Here is a sample from itoo, adapted for Octane:

The animation mode 'Follow Geometry' works fine as instance (Octane support: 'Direct mode', and FP render mode set as Automatic)
This simply use the animated reference object 'Bend with keyframes' for all instances.

Other animation modes are not specially supported, so you may need to set the FP render mode as Mesh.
See in this sample, the fp_random object uses the 'Random Samples' mode, and it works like that.

I'll try to add better support for other animation modes in the future.
Thanks

I am not sure what you guys did with all these modes. In octane 4 it worked like a charm now it is a cluster mess
