Center gradient ripple + Octane Render

Hello everyone,
Today I'm trying to achieve what seems like a simple effect but I haven't had much luck with it.

Here are my early ideas/concepts:

Idea (Set selection + Fields)

1. Start with a plane
2. Set a polygon selection
3. Enable 'fields'
4. Add 'spherical field'

result (1):

(Forum's image upload is not working for me right now so hosting images here instead)


Result 1: Not at all what I wanted, I was hoping that I would be able to control the expansion of the material unto the plane, instead it create an interesting pixel like effect, will save this for a more graphics project.

Idea 2:


I'm struggling with getting the effect to work on a plane, so let's simplify and try cloners.

1. Create clone > Object mode
2. Insert sphere to plane polygon center
3. Add spherical field and enable color remap

Result(2):

This works for controlling the color of each clone through a gradient (Super cool) however it only renders in the physical render engine, when I try to render in octane the effect fails, I have tried to add an octane object tag but that did not work.



Summary:
I'm trying to achieve the ability to control the color of materials using fields. Essentially I'm trying to achieve this effect and render within octane.

I can achieve this effect fairly simply in after effects but unsure how to go about it on C4D despite trying several options. Hopefully someone can shed a light on this.

Cheers!

Here is the file I have so far, though I doubt it would help very much:
