OctaneRender for ArchiCAD nearing the end of beta testing

All is going well with beta testing.  

I thought this was a good example of the intent of the plugin. The scene was from one of our beta testers (thank you Flavius). The workflow was 1) Run ArchiCAD, 2) Load the scene 3) Click the OctaneRender toolbar button 4) Click the Open Viewport button on the plugin. You can see all the materials, geometry and environment has transferred from ArchiCAD into Octane very accurately and the workflow is very quick and simple. From there the user can tweak the rendertarget settings and Octane materials, load materials from the LiveDB, etc to improve the render, but it looks great immediately.
