Animation with instances

has anyone been able to run an animation that uses a geometry group?
For me, it just renders the .obj with the name I have in Blender.

Sorry, don't understand the problem.

I created a group with a sphere, cube, and cone
in project named "Testing". When I rendered the still image, Octane named it Testing.obj.

I animated each object and the group in Blender and rendered the animation in Octane no problem. :)

ps- it's still rendering but it looks like things are moving as they should.

Later...did you mean a vertex group vs a group of objects?

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but this was done with Blender and Octane: http://vimeo.com/25686881

Sorry, I mean creating a geometry group in Octane with several instances. For me, it doesnt render the geometry group, including all the instances, it just renders one of my mesh nodes.

so if I have a bunch of chairs, I cant create instances with them, I have to have them in the same mesh node as everything else.

Ok, you're way ahead of me.

I didn't even know you could create the instances in Octane.

I thought everything was created in Blender, and Octane just rendered
each scene as Blender exported them.

If the video by Erik Jansson is an example of this, WOW! :shock:

That video was created way before instances were available in Octane.

Either way, its not that important right now, and hopefully withing the next month or 2 we will have the integrated plugin, so I dont need to worry about it.
