Missing Octane materials?
« on: September 26, 2018, 04:10:28 AM »
There are no Octane materials available to me in the 3d Starter Library. See attached image.

Further, if I select an asset for which an Octane material is available from the dropdown, but I leave it to automatic with Octane render active, it does not chose Octane materials.

Hi

Unfortunately not all libraries are prepared to be used with all the renderers.
It is just the case in this situation- 3d Starter Library is prepared to be used with Standard, MentalRay, Vray, Corona and Arnold materials.
As there is no renderer of Your choice You can try using Standard materials.

That's disappointing as Octane, and other renderers, are promoted on your website as being supported. Sounds like itoo marketing is over ambitious. It's misleading at a minimum and doesn't live up to the "Pro" designation in my opinion.

I hope that itoo will consider creating material libraries which fully support the promoted render packages. Doesn't it make much more sense for itoo to do this once, than for each and every customer to do it individually?
