I don't know if I'm missing something obvious :D

I think that the Octane installer somehow doesn't have the network daemon files, but they are there in the .zip release, can you please check it?

The requests that I made of improvement and addition of the materials Metalic and Universal to the material converter have not yet been implemented, I look forward to it.

Thank you Juanjo.

If IPR is started with instancer unchecked LW crashes if that instancer is checked back on during IPR renderering, especially if you changed something with it while it was unchecked.

That bug of the third UV set stay the same way.


The core dev team has found that these triangles have degenerate UV coordinates, meaning they occupy a line rather than a triangle in UV space. Currently, every displaced triangle must cover a non-zero area in UV space to render correctly.

Sorry, are these options available in Octane but not supported by the LW plugin yet? I'm not sure to understand what are you talking about.

Not at the same time in the same LightWave, but you could install two LightWaves, each one configured to use its own config files, and install a different plugin version in each one.

VDB/SDF workflow?

Postby rustyippolito » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:58 pm

Hey Juanjo-

Can you please explain how to render vdb files as a level set geometry with an octane material? Does this only work in LW2019? Any vdb file we try to render with SDF checked does not render anything at all, no matter what surface we try plugging into the node, with or without a medium node plugged in as well. Is there a special way we need to create our vdb files to have specific SDF information? Please explain this function if you don't mind.

thanks for keeping the updates coming!!

You only need an SDF OpenVDB file and a material linked to the "SDF material" input in the volumetrics node editor, as you can see in the attached image. This is the link to download an SDF OpenVDB test object:
