Here is new topic for version 3.07-R1 which is based on stable SDK(3.07).[/b].

You can find a detailed description of the new 3.07 features of Standalone in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=62395

Changes of 3.07-R2(fixed version for HDR rotate)
- Update on material manager to avoid triggering restart of bake operation several times on baking_texture. Fixing the issue: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=63676

Changes of 3.07-R1
- New InstanceColorID support for objects/particles/VertexColor tag(C4D/Alembic). See example scene for usage.
- New textures: InstanceColor, InstanceRange, Baking texture, UvwTransform texture.
- Volume object update detection
- Node editor: Undo/redo update issue on embedded editor with node parameters
- Fix: Crashes with Meshno>3 on Object tag
- Scatter object: Animated/deformed objects support on distribution slot. Fix wrong weights on effectors. Fix unnecessary calculation on camera navigation. Instance color support. Shader effector UV support.

- Initial colorID support for particles/scatter object.
- Fix: Broken "-exportORBX" commandline parameter.
- Better Camera MotionBlur processing for fixing some issue of CamMoblur detection.
- Fix: Triplanar bug on handling of initial channel.
- Triplanar node, single texture improvement.
- Change: Internal diffuse color changed from gray to black for internal material of Light Tags. It may cause a small amount difference on results of illumination effect.
- Floor object support added. Tiling from texture tags will not work. So use transform nodes in textures for scaling.
- Node Editor: Solo mode for textures
- Fix scatter: Wrong uv sampling on distribution of scatter with tiled mode
- min. requirement changed for R18. It's now 18.057
- Fix: Crash on R19 with deleting nodes in node editor
- Fix: Help buttons in octane stuff to use offline/online manual
- Several small fixes


Important warning about R19 build:
Saving of passes functionality in Octane RenderSettings is broken due a bug on R19 SDK. So you can try to use C4D's save for multi-pass image until we get fix/update from MAXON.

Hi and thanks for release,

I have the same problem with baking texture node that I'm explaining here>>
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=63676

the node tree reacts well in standalone but not in cinema 4d, this may be due to my Octane settings in c4d ?

Well thanks! I'm seeing it's reacting different in plugin. I'll check it.

Great work Aoktar :)
I have 2 questions:

-Is there a way to have more than 8 lights passes in a scene ?

-Is it possible to remove the number automaticaly added in the passes ?

Now we have for example:
MYRENDER_vertex normal_3.exr

Can we have the choice to make it named without the "_Number passes":
MYRENDER_vertex normal.exr

It could be great because, in compositing, when we add or remove passes, now we should re-link every image sequences. Because the name changed.

Thank you

Nice update.

In the Xp Example scene, you've got an XP material on the emitter, is it doing anything?

Looks like Octane can now see a few parameters like age,speed etc but doesn't get any of that information from the xpshader?

I'm doing it on a proper way. Using by xpshader is not direct or compatible way for plugin+Octane structure.

-8 light pass is renderer limit.
-Numbers on passes: Are you wanting that for single frame renders? I can't see any logic else of this to avoid it.
