FBX Import Preferences


You can manage FBX.fbx (Filmbox) is a proprietary file format developed by Kaydara and owned by Autodesk since 2006. It is used to provide interoperability between digital content creation applications. As of Octane 3.07, a scene node will also be available as an FBX file, allowing for quick and easy transport of assets from industry standard DCC applications import preferences by going to File > Preferences > Geometry Import > FBX.

FBX Import Preferences

Length Unit - Tells OctaneRender® the unit of measurement used in the geometry. The default unit is in meters.

Object Layers - This controls how Object layer pins are created on the Mesh node to control the discrete objects.

Object Smoothing




Vertex Data

Face-Varying Data

Face-varying data like UVs and color sets are used when OctaneRender requires discontinuities in the data over the surface - often the seams between disjoint UV regions. Face-varying data can follow the same interpolation behavior as vertex data, or it can be constrained to interpolate linearly around selective features from corners, boundaries, or the entire Mesh interior.
