This is the recommended thread for downloading, and posting any questions, suggestions or support queries for OctaneRender for AutoCAD, build 184.108.40.206
(TEST RELEASE) onwards. This version is compiled against Octane 1.29, so see the requirements for that build regarding compatibility with your video card.Pls do not use this for commercial or time critical projects - there may be issues that have not yet been found in testing.
Scenes saved with this build cannot be loaded with the 1.20 build, so make sure you keep a backup of the 1.20 scenes
The plugin requires AutoCAD 2013 or 2014, Windows 32bit or 64bit.
If you have a support issue, pls provide the following information
- Operating System (ie. Win XP, Vista, 7, 8)
- 32 or 64 bit
- Amount of RAM
- Graphics Card(s) - model (ie. GTX 580, 3GB)
- Nvidia driver version
- AutoCAD version and build number
- OctaneRender for AutoCAD version (ie. 220.127.116.11)Change Log from release 18.104.22.168
- Compiled against Octane 1.29
- Added "LiveDb Texturemap Folder" to the configuration options
- Maximum polygons that can be specified in the Configuration is 50 million
- Added "Warn if texturemaps not found" option in the configuration
- Pin names/node names changed to be more user friendly
- Save to OCS (Octane Standalone) added to the rightclick menu of the Settings tab
- All "scale" pins have been replaced with transform nodes. So you can apply different projections to texturemaps and procedural textures. Old scales from your saved scenes are not retained.
- Improved logging. Open the Cuda Log (devices tab) to see any general Octane errors and/or logging.
- If you want to rotate an IBL, set the project the Spherical and move the rotatation sliders.
- If a Octane referenced texturemap is not found when loading a scene, the plugin allows the searching for the file. If you abort from the search dialog, all further searching for texturemaps is disabled until a new scene is loaded. Missing texturemaps will be reported as an Octane/Cuda error too.- It is strongly recommended that you delete your default rendertarget settings (delete C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\OctaneRender for AutoCAD\Defaults\Rendertarget.xmlr) and recreate them again in the plugin. This will ensure the new daylight structure is saved in your default rendertarget.
- It the plugin requests reactivation, you will need to de-activate from the Otoy website and re-activate the plugin
- Scale nodes have changed such that an Octane 1.20 scale of 10 is an Octane 1.25 scale of 0.1. So old scenes will load with an incorrect scale.
- Added white balance picking, and separate cursors for each pick modeFor more information...
