What is OctaneRender?
OctaneRender is the world’s first and fastest GPU-accelerated, unbiased, physically correct renderer. What does that mean? It means that Octane uses the graphics card in your computer to render photo-realistic images super fast. With Octane’s parallel compute capabilities, you can create stunning works in a fraction of the time.
Use OctaneRender to create images of the highest possible quality at speeds up to 50x faster than CPU-based, unbiased renderers. Attached to your editing tools? No problem! Octane supports more than 21 plugins and has a fully interactive, real-time 3D editing viewport.
Yes I have activated my Octane Trial let the fun times begin 🙂
I cant afford the license, so I for one will enjoy messing with Octane for these 3 months. Octane Render is very much worth the cost. it has 21 plugins you can get for it. I use poser so I would need to purchase the combo deal.
Thats 429.00 EUR which converts to $478.72 USD for me to get the combo pack
I could just buy the Octane render poser plugin first which is 166.31 USD and then work on getting Octane render full. Looks like Carrara is $110.57. I will set up a donation button if you like my work, every dollar helps me get closer to purchasing Octane for my 3d work. Then I can try to make a living from this and be productive.
