Octane Render + Skatter

Postby fivebythree » Fri Nov 27, 2015 6:50 pm

I have wonderful news for those using Octane Render. With a little tinkering of proxies, Skatter and Octane can work really nicely together.

1 - A .ocs file can be made of your item, ie trees, grass plot etc.
2 - In new scene, create a component (any size) context click to apply the .ocs file to the named component.
3 - use skatter to set up your scene. (overkill of components will bug-splat or just generally crash - Save OFTEN!)
4 - press (re)Generate - important step or nothing will show up.
5 - Render in Octane Plugin
6 - Finally large grassy surfaces! super happy!

Great!

So you're not using "Render only"?

That is correct. Basically I have to apply proxies to the base components. I then select them those to Skatter. Everything else is handled by your app, and the proxy system in Octane.

This doesn't work for me. I am probably doing something wrong. for example:

I open a single tree in sketchup
export it as an OBJ file
create a simple rectangle as a component in sketchup
right click and hit apply octane proxy

my rectangle disappears from the octane viewport and I get no tree :(

I have been really frustrated trying to figure this thing out. I really need to get this to work asap. Any suggestions?

That's a question you should ask on the Otoy forums.
