Changelog:
4.6.0
* Added initial support for Omnidirectional stereo rendering with the spherical camera.
* CPU rendering with null blends (for example foliage) is much faster now.
* High quality BVH building for GPU rendering uses much less memory now, and is faster.
* GPU rendering speed may be slightly improved.
* Made BVH building more robust.
* Using latest Embree for CPU raytracing.
Current limitations:
* Sphere primitives will not be rendered
* Motion blur is slightly incorrect in extreme cases.
* GPU PT: fixed check for interface between two media with the same IOR.
Fixes arch glass not rendering properly in some cases.
* Fixed arch glass transmittance calcs to use shading normals instead of geom normals.
Fixes faceting artifacts in shadows of curved arch glass.
* Added GPU support for worldTime, sunDir, camPos, camForwardsDir, camRightDir, camUpDir ISL functions
* Added worldTime() ISL function. In the scene it's stored with the camera.
* Added world time control to camera UI controls
* Building Windows build with vs2019.
* Improved object scattering so results are independent of view frustum and number of CPU cores.
* Object scattering is now multithreaded and much faster.
* Updated bundled exporter/plugin versions.

That is just everything! :D

Also:
* Updated bundled exporter/plugin versions.

What is the latest C4D exporter's version? I lost track...

Thank you for this new Beta release.

I've been doing some test and i've found some issues with "Hide from camera" feature, it seems that the hidden objects blocks the light. This happens with CPU and GPU. I attach an example:

By the way, is there a chance to have in the final release, post process options AFTER finishing a render ( bloom, glare,lens effects...etc etc)? : )

I don't know about the material, but unless it is set null it will always block light

Indigo's "invisible object" always block lights;) ohh, too many bad rendered images... but if you will increase max ray light depth, your lighting rays will pass thru the "invisible" object without "shadow". p.s. it's much better to buy RT because it has no "invisible" objects ;)

As has previously mentioned, invisible objects block light by design. They're only hidden from the camera, not to light sources etc. They're also visible through glass and in mirrors.

Ok, thx for the explanation :) .

So, what do i need to do to get invisible emitters? ( objects wich cast light but light source is not visible). :)

I've found that if i enable OpenCl and right after enable clamp contributions, Indigo crashes : ( , but if you do it the other way around it won't crash : )

Okay, thanks, I had some issues with that when working with OpenCl, I'll keep that in mind!
