I'm having a number of problems with beta h and all previous betas.
1. Missing geometry - When I select the "render frame" option in the sketchup to octane exporter the scene is exported to octane, however some of the geometry appearing in the sketchup program does not succesfully export to octane and therefore i am left with only bits of my scene in octane. The missing geometry seems to be from other skp files that i have downloaded from the sketchup warehouse and imported into my sketchup scene.
2. Render animation not working - When I select the "render animation" option in the sketcup to octane exporter a dialog box pops up named "Administrator: Animation" and closes and thats it. The sketchup file has a number of scenes.
I am currently running Windows 7 64 bit with Octane 1.022 64 bit and Sketchup 7 on a GTX 260

I tried a two scene/two frame animation and Octane crashed after rendering the first frame for a few seconds.

still no good news from the Mac side... the permissions prob seems solved now, but the plugin still doesn't work.
I tried some manual tweaks to the .command files but I always get some (different!) error warning in the console.
just a question: does the plugin have to point to the Octane.app or directly to the Unix executable hidden into the "app" folder? I tried both ways and no one is working, but I would like to try only the right way from now on...
any other Mac/Sketchup/Octane user out there???

The example given in the latest Octane pdf is unclear $ octane \"OctaneBenchmark\octane_benchmark for 1022 beta 2.2rc.ocs\"
[I corrected their typo \ to /]
Please try manually adding a '$ ' to the start of the line that runs Octane ?
Presumably their 'octane' is the full path to the executable [binary] file too ??
If adding this '$ ' works let me know, asap, I can easily add that to the file format.
Have you tried changing the first line to plain old #!/bin/sh or #!/bin/csh [rather than #!/bin/bash] - as I have no access to a Mac and my Unix shell-scripting is 15 years rusty I need help too - I thought that #!/bin/bash was the latest built in friend GNU shell command ? ...
If none of this improves things then can you PM me the original .command files etc - .zip or .rar them. Include any tweaked versions that you think might be more workable too...
Thanks for your Mac feedback so far - I feel we are getting near to fixing this issue for the Mac, so please bear with me...
You shall go to the ball...
