Some of you, working with the OctaneRender for Poser plug-in and our shaders, might have noticed, that after installing RC 3.08 of the OctaneRender plug-in,
RedSpec shaders start to act unnormally, as they did a while ago when the Normal map behavior of OctaneRender was changed.

The problem lies within the fact, that Octane treats a Normal map node with a grayscale valued "0" as flipped normals and thus renders the surface in a flipped state.

There will be a fix coming in soon for this - at this point it looks like it will be some time next week.

EDIT: The fix is released now and can be downloaded here:

Windows Regular OctaneRender for Poser…
Windows Subscription OctaneRender for Poser…
OSX Regular OctaneRender for Poser…
OSX Subscription OctaneRender for Poser…

Regards and Happy Rendering

Do your shaders work with 4x stand alone.  Im on a Mac, so, no plug-in.

Why dont we get information about your developement? your loyal costumers want to know more why they dont recieve any news or an update.

Sorry for the delay in replying.
Currently, we're really sitting and waiting, since we don't support Otoys current licensing plans.

Since these things are all still subject to change, we so far didn't want to comment on them publicly. Shoul OTOY manifest it's licensing plans for their plug-ins for good, we definitely will let you guys know where we stand on it.

Just curious if a new version of the Redspec Shaders will be coming out any time soon ?
TRRazor Featured By Owner May 12, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
this depends on OTOY's subscription and licensing business model and how they will keep OctaneRender accessible to entry-level / enthusiast artists out there.
With their current plans and business strategy, we believe, that they're essentially forcing away a lot of their userbase, making OctaneRender a professional-tool.

Should they not offer any feasible licensing options for entry-level and or enthusiast artists, we cannot guarantee to continue development on the project, due to the then exploding costs. Sorry for not having any better news at this moment, but we'll have to see what OTOY is going to be doing in the coming weeks and months.

Hello how do i lower the skin glossyness for G3M Redspec SSS shader?
And are you planning to upgrade it free to G8M version like you did with the female version?
TRRazor Featured By Owner May 8, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
You decrease specular values and increase roughness values :).
And yes, G3M will be updated freely to include G8M shaders.

Currently aiming between May and October for a release.
