New features and changes in Ocean 2019

Algorithm Optimisation

With an additional performance gain of more than 10%, this new version of Ocean takes advantage of all the power you give it.

Project manager

The Job Queue has been revamped to make it more powerful.

It is now called a Project Manager. It is quite generic in order to fit multiple needs, but is mainly intended for two use cases :

  • * As a tool to organise render projects with more clarity and repeatability than before
  • * Ease the making of small videos / clips using Ocean

More info at the Project Manager toolbox page.


Project management

It improves on the features of the previous Job Queue for render management :

  • * Compatible with pre-2019 behavior (make new job from edits, drop scene files into list, …)
  • * Organise jobs using a tree structure (jobs with subjobs …)
  • * Enable / disable jobs in the list (+ easier to view which jobs are done and which ones are waiting to be rendered)
  • * Load / store project files with edit and animation jobs
  • * Bulk rename jobs using a simple auto-naming format

Animation Tools

The Manager provides useful tools to generate simple animations

  • * Parameter animations
  • * Animate a node parameter by interpolating between 2 values
  • * Multiple interpolation schemes (nearest, linear, sigmoid, …)
  • * Automatic turntable (move camera around a fixed target point)

Ocean 2019 features many CAD format readers that can load such files as if they were standard ocxml files.
