Hide Forest to camera?
« on: June 27, 2016, 12:58:01 PM »
Is it possible to hide a forest object to the camera using the object properties?
I need only its shadows and reflection but the trees should be invisible. I tried the object property rollout but had no luck.
Using Octane Render.

Hi,

Well, the Octane Renderer is using our API to handle Forest objects and to be honest I don't know how the actual implementation is done. I would encourage you to contact the Otoy team them directly / post on their forum regarding this issue.

Meanwhile, please feel free to convert such Forest object(s) with help of the Forest Tools to instances (and unchecking the Visible to Camera under Object Properties for those).

Best regards,

Ah nice idea. Just forgot about the forest tools to instanciate. :)
