Octane for Max and Forest Pack Pro
« on: January 20, 2012, 06:18:29 PM »
Hi, I'm doing tests with Octane for Max and I can say it works.

But if I assign the Octane mat to the billboard every change I do replace the custom Forest Pack mat
Is it possible to deactivate this function?

Now I upgraded my license to 3.6.2...but I don't see the new file license on my account

Btw, soon Octane for Max will support instances, I would like to know if Itoo will support this awesome rendering plugin.

Regards

You can turn off the "Consolidate Material" checkbox in Geometry, and assign any material manually to Forest.

You should receive the new license code by e-mail. If not, please use My Licenses->Resend keys in the User Panel.

We have not tested Octane, but that depends on whether it provides a SDK (i can't find any reference to it in their website). If any case, you can use Forest Tools to convert the items to Max instances.

Thanks for the link !. We will contact with the Octane team, to see if it is possible to integrate both products.
