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.
