There has been an important update to Octane just released. The two exciting changes are:
1) Render pass output for lighting layers – this feature allows users
to produce images for each render pass that constitutes an image such
as reflections, refractions, normal, direct and indirect lighting,
normals, material id, object id, SSS, wireframe, emitters, etc.
2) Speed increase - people are reporting an effective render speed
increase of 30% and greater. This is achieved through some changes to
the renderer, together with additional kernel controls.
The Poser, Modo, Rhino and Revit plugins have been updated and released to include the above changes. The ArchiCAD, AutoCAD and Inventor plugin will be updated shortly.
