    This talk seems to suggest lightmap baking is working with Octane in Unity, today(!) I cannot find any resources or confirmation of this fact, other than his word in the video.

    Has anyone completed a successful lightmap bake in Unity using the Otoy 2017.2 Preview Edition?

    Good question, but I don't know. Otoy wants to update when I pull down the sample scene from Asset Store, but never can.

    It will be available when 2017.2 officially released (I Think)
    Follow in otoy forums about new update release
    Current release is just for 2017.1 without new baking features

    Right? This is the third time he has said that, but I cannot find a download link anywhere. I replied to him on Twitter, although I doubt I will get a response. I'm hoping the mods will post updates on the Otoy forum as soon as the download becomes available. I would really prefer they release the plugin directly from their website, rather than through Asset Store.

    I think he just misspoke, since on that forum thread someone from otoy says they are working with Unity on getting some edge cases fixed and will keep us informed.

    @buttmatrix I was kind of wondering the same thing, is it on the beta Octane render that we download when we got octane? @elbows true, What forum thread says that? Can you possibly drop a link?

    Cheers!

    This is more or less how I feel about it at this time. Even if the tech is out:

    1. I have no idea where to get it - unless its wrapped in one of the Asset Store sample scenes
    2. I have no idea how to use it.

    No chance that I'm going to dig through Otoy's plugin for days trying to understand the UI without a step-by-step description.

    Got it :) Cause I know it’s possible to install/uninstall octane from a project and check for updates. Didn’t know if it was possible :)

    Does anyone know how to render foliage with OctaneRender in Unity? Right now it seems to only work with the Standard Shader, which is no good for any trees and foliage. Is there perhaps an octane shader we can use instead?

    Are you able to use octane in play mode (lightmapper, in general)?

    Cheers!

    So this Month old video was Overly Optimistic at Best. Because according to this it was working on October 10th. I think these guys have a bright future inside Unity. But it seems the start has been a bit rough.

    They need to work on their public communication. I used to complain that all their different tech was conflated together, causing confusion. Then they took steps to explain the different stuff properly, but then made a different mistake by saying things were ready, already available, etc, when they weren't. It wastes peoples time to say these things prematurely!

    You can render a stereo cube map image in Octane at 18432x1536 and drop it in ORBX media player as a PNG. For animations you will need to render and compress for Gear VR on ORC (as OKX).

    See the latest posts on the Unity blog page:

    https://blogs.unity3d.com/2017/12/14/available-now-octanerender-for-unity/

    we are working on automatic this through the OSL camera coming in the next update. In the meantime, you can test the baking system manually (and a tutorial video is being prepare for our YT channel)

    Thanks for the update on the baking. I just bought the year long subscription through the Unity store and already I see some issues. First there isn't actually a choice on the additional plug-in. You can only choose something called OctaneRender Studio / OctaneVR. I am new to your products, So I don't know exactly what that is. But I can tell you on your site I have the option to choose Maya and that is want I wanted. Why is this different if I purchase through the Unity store??? Also the OctaneRender Studio / OctaneVR refuses to start. I used my Otoy log-in instead of the Unity login and now it shows an authorization error and won't let me in. And It won't let me change the log-in either. I want to know why and how I get this on Maya and Unity and working....
