Octane doesn't work with Afanasy network rendering

Hello,
I have a bug with rendering with octane with afanasy rendering system. http://cgru.info/afanasy/afanasy
As result - all frames are saving in the first frame file "Output_0001.exr" But actually File name path in octane rop is "Output_$F4.exr"
But unfortunately it doesn't work for multiple frames at all.
I am ready to make testings and all other things to solve it becase Afanasy is the best network render management and its free and used by a lot of people.

Thanks
Evgen

Probably the problem is that the render manager doesn't understand the Octane ROP node parameters, that are not the same than Mantra. How it works, with scripts?

For example, the Octane ROP node file name/prefix parameter is "HO_img_fileName", while in Mantra is "vm_picture". If this is the only problem with your render manager, you could try to add a spare parameter to the Octane ROP node named "vm_picture" linked to the "HO_img_fileName" to see if Afanasy can get the file name.

Perhaps this is not the only one problem, but can be a starting point.

Juanjo, thanks for advice.
That could help.
I will try it in a few hours and let you know the result.
