Faceoff released an update for the Poser plugin for Octane: build 3.08.2.88. Apart from updating it with the latest Octane release (3.08.2) it also added support for 4K screens and corrected a bug with normal maps. Version 3.08 is a must have update for Octane. New features include Metal/Roughness work flow with Metalic Material, Anisotropy, OSL textures and baking support.
The updated plugin can be found here for licensed customers.
Octane version 4 is making steady progress, but I think release is still some months away.
[dropcap]The[/dropcap] Octane Poser User Guide covers all there is to know about using the Octane Poser plugin with Poser.
Installation, Octane Materials, Octane lighting, HDRI, OpenVDB, Instancing and much more are all explained and how to use them with examples. The Guide has also chapters on Material conversion from Poser, Trouble Shooting and Tips and Tricks.
Although written for the Poser plugin, some sections will also be helpful for users of other Plugins for Octane.
The guide is intended to be a “living” document and will be updated regularly with new information and examples when needed.
The current version of the guide can be found here: Octane Poser Plugin User Guide
