Here you have a video working with Octane instancing. Plugin can render the LW clones as instances , or can render instances from Null objects simple naming them as any loaded object plus a "-" prefix. Easy
Octane for LW is also going to support the LW11 instancing system, but this is going to be added later.

At the moment Layout FiberFX doesn't have SDK access, so it is hard, it not impossible, to support it. Octane anyway perhaps could render the polygonal hair made with Modeler FiberFX, or hair made with a custom module.

Lightwave plugin has now all code to support animation. It also support Lightwave SDS and Displacement maps, Dinamics, etc.

User can use interactive render with animated scenes. It can work in two modes: one for animate only simple object transformations and cameras, that doesn't need to reload scene, and other with full scene update, that support deformations, dinamics, etc.

I don't know if this would be in the same vein... but would Octane support (or be able to support) Sasquatch hair? I know it's quite old, but I figure I'd ask.

It doesn't have SDK or external access to it's data, so it is impossible to use with a external render.

I kind of figured it would turn out like that. Thanks for responding!
