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

Any news about the prommised update?

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.

Hallo, is there an update for G3M / G8M out now? There was no mail about it until now.
TRRazor Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2019  Professional Digital Artist
It's not out yet.
We're still aiming to release it some time in the future.

Since developing time is a pretty rare commodity to come by at the moment, however, (I started studying at the university and the other half of RedSpec SSS has a child to look after) we didn't meet our release target.
At the moment I can't say when we'll release it, but just THAT we will release it.

Sorry, for not having any better news at the moment.

hi I've been using your plugin for a while now, and i've been wondering- is there a way to increase/exaggerate the SSS? like i know how to make teh skin look wet by adjusting the spec/roughness in the glossy nodes, but how would i go about increasing teh SSS effect/see through effect? which specific nodes/values should i edit to get the quickest results?
TRRazor Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Edit the "Density" value under the "Medium " node.
Higher values reduce the SSS effect, lower values increase it.
xaqq Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2018
does this apply to both the absorption and scattering node?
TRRazor Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, it does :)

So... When can we expect a DAZ/iRay shader from you guys for G8F? I am sure it has been asked many times, but I am also sure that once you release that you're opening the flood gate for demand ! ;)

Food for thought. Love you!
