    Says "support for 12+ DCC plugins", which I take to mean the plugins that connect Octane to other apps.

    Please do report back on your results. I'm not sure what 3.3.6 has over 3.3.0, and since my setup is working (so far) with 3.3.0 I'd like to know if there's a benefit to 3.3.6 before risking the...

    I always manually scan plugins and turn "Autoscan Plugins" off, as that tends to cause random issues with .dll's (e.g. with TurbulenceFD). I then write-protect the EXT config file immediately after...

    Here's Dusty, who I mentioned up-thread in mid 2013. We lost her to lymphoma in April last year, and still miss her terribly.

    I just reconstructed my render stack, and ran into the same issue with the 2015 config file; it throws what looks like an internal code error saying that there is an issue with the input string.
