Forest Pack Pro Octane Renderer Color map
« on: May 08, 2017, 04:00:16 PM »
Hi there at Itoo,

I use the Octane renderer from Otoy. I am trying to get the Forest color map working but until now without result. I attached a jpeg from my setup. Does anybody knows what is wrong? Or doesn t it work at all?

Hi,

I'm afraid, the Forest Color map is not supported by the Octane renderer. Please feel free to check the Feature Compatibility table in our on-line reference documentation.

Best regards,

Hi Michal,

Thanx for the quick answer.  Do you know if in the near future FP can scatter on animated, deformable meshes?

Best regards Paul

Hi Paul,

Usually, the UV mode would be recommendable, but it'll depend a lot on how the deformation will look like. For some scenarios (where the UV space is significantly deformed in time) would be recommendable to use a workaround with "help surfaces" as explained in following "Scattering on animated surface" thread. Hope you'll find it useful.

Best regards,
