Only a few small scenes, with medium-complex textures, lighting a.s.o.
All worked fine, I observed no dramatic incompatibility issues during a quick 20 min testing.
So first impression: it shall run.
Vice versa: All "upscaled" C4D scenes from R20/4.05 to R21/ X R1.1. had no issues so far.
Did not test downscaled data from R23: Don't know yet if there is an official stable C4D R23 / Octane X support right now (wish it would).
THE ONLY THING: there is no network rendering aviable for heterogenic Octane versions (eg 4.05 render clients with Octane X Master, or Octane R2020.1.x), sadly this is a lack you need to know. Either you have several Octane X renderclients, or you need to render it in standalone.). Hope the soon next aviable Version will overcome this "platform" issue, it was a main invest decision, we did, and now we are "hanging" a bit, waiting for this release.
Just check via Migration options – the guys from Otoy are very customer oriented regarding purchasing update from 4.05 to X.
