What Is OctaneRender®


OctaneRender® is the world’s first and fastest GPUThe GPU is responsible for displaying graphical elements on a computer display. The GPU plays a key role in the Octane rendering process as the CUDA cores are utilized during the rendering process.-accelerated, unbiased, physically correct renderer. OctaneRender uses the computer's graphic card to render photo-realistic images super fast. With Octane’s parallel compute capabilities, stunning works can be created in a fraction of the time.


The release of OctaneRender 3 brings new state-of-the-art tools never seen before in any production renderer. Features include volumetric light field primitives and deep motion buffers for high frame rate VRImmersively engaging and experiencing depth perception in a three dimensional scene through stereo vision goggles and head-mounted displays. rendering. The release also incorporates important industry standards for GPU rendering, including Open Shader LanguageA shading language developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks. There are multiple render engines that utilize OSL as it is particularly suited for physically-based renderers. (OpenSL) and OpenVDBDreamworks’ open-source C++ library housing the data structures and tools implementation for storing and manipulating volume data, like smoke and other amorphous materials. The purpose of OpenVDB is mostly to have an efficient way to store volumetric data in memory and on disk. It has evolved into a more general toolkit that also lets you accomplish other things, such as fracturing volumes, converting meshes to volumes and vice versa. However, it does not include a computational fluid dynamics solver, and therefore it cannot procedurally generate smoke or fire. OpenVDB is fully integrated as a library in OctaneRender. For more information about OpenVDB, check at http://www.openvdb.org/. for particle simulation.


Use OctaneRender to create images of the highest possible quality at speeds up to 50x faster than CPU-based, unbiased renderers. It has a fully interactive, real-time 3D editing viewport. Additionally, Octane 3.0 provides integration with a beta version of the new Octane Render Cloud that can handle intensive on-demand GPU compute needs.
