Octane and Forest Pack
« on: October 03, 2012, 07:31:36 AM »
Sooo  :) today after I saw a Post in the Octane Render Forums from Karba the developer of octane for max, i got sooo excited!!

He says we require an updated version of forest Pro for it to work with Octane, is that the 3.9.4?

Do u know if the support include also the Forest Color? or Just Object Instancing etc..

Although I don't care about Forest Color since I use Maxwell, I also have an Octane license so, some more info would be nice...
I will sign it only if it is a piece of art!

Hi all,

Karba was working in the Forest support since some weeks ago. We didn't want to announce it, until we are sure there was not problems with the implementation. We just received his confirmation that everything is working fine.

He used a modified Forest version, which includes a new custom interface. So, the Octane support will be included in the upcoming Forest 4, that we are developing now. This release also will include support for Arion Render, Thea Render and other engines that i cannot announce yet.

I think the first beta should be ready within three of four weeks. As always, the beta will be available for all Forest Pro customers with active subscriptions.

About Octane, i have not tested it yet, so please be patient. As far as i know, it includes only instancing support, not Forest Color.
