An ability to check/uncheck a "mirror/flip image, horizontal/vertical" box, for any type of image brought in (ie as a texture).
I know I can do this on my own in an outside program easy before I bring in into Octane, but I want to be as lazy as possible.
Plus it would be nifty to see results on the fly and compare the 2 results of an image mirrored/flipped as a texture.

Checkboxes could be useful, but you can do this with UV Transform. Pop -1 into either/both S.X or S.Y. You can do it this way bro, and we can still call you lazy, if you want. ;)

Ah, -1...My favorite number!
Thanks!

And I didn't even learn that on my own. You went through the effort of telling me.
How's that for Lazy.

An alpha material? Meaning, it would alpha anything "behind" that material too (such as a texture or daylight background), where a composited image behind/underneath it would be visible.

It would be great to have a subsurface multiplier like in Modo to help creating cool glowing effects (or like Light multiplier in VRAY). With Octane SSS many times I find I can't reach the intensity I want for the type of artwork I do. See image below.

Hi jerzer,
finally I have found the time to look at your scene.
Here is my version with only one Specular material instead of a mix material.
If you use a Gausssian spectrum node, instead of an RGB node, you can easily use a value greater than 1 in the power pin. Playing with the Phase value, helps to reduce the transition between the colors:

In general, with Specular material and SSS, better to switch to PMC kernel, instead of Path Tracing.
Happy rendering,
ciao beppe
