I use octane in sketchup (not in standalone version), and this is a Octane for sketchup forum.
In the video the rollouts and command are different.

thank you

yes mate. the menus are different but the workflow is the same.

So if you do the same logic you will get the same results.

cheers

thank you perro_abombao for the reply,
I've tried the various settings and it seems to work,
a problem occurs when I save the file, close sketchup and re open the file: the renderer doesn't show the IES emission of the light source, as the material editor continues to show the parameters saved (blackbody emission, IES distribution,power, gamma, and all projection modifier) :roll:

I use octane Version: 0.13.82 in skp v14

the usefull answer was correct, and Smicha even helped you with the Fireflies problem.

after that I just said that the workflow/technic is the same in Octane StandAlone and inside the plugin, because its the same program.

Well if it works or not is another question.

It actually works, but with a small bug.

To set the ies light to work you need to create a material in SU, with a texture applied, Ex: Light_ies1 with texture A("use a image texture" option in SU material editor), then you convert to Diffuse material in Octane material editor. Then you select the IES you want to distribution and all will work after closing and reopen the program.

it seems like the problem here is that IES is not a texture and SU with Octane plugin work with textures, so the bug must be here.

well im not an expert and my help might be useless so use it or leave it.

cheers
