Exporting An ORBX® Scene


The Export ORBXThe ORBX file format is the best way to transfer scene files from 3D Authoring software programs that use the Octane Plug-in such as Octane for Maya, Octane for Cinema 4D, or OctaneRender Standalone. This format is more efficient than FBX when working with Octane specific data as it provides a flexible, application independent format. ORBX is a container format that includes all animation data, models, textures etc. that is needed to transfer an Octane scene from one application to another. Scene option (Figure 1) exports the current Unreal map to ORBX format so another 3D application can read and render it using OctaneRender®, such as OctaneRender Standalone (Figure 2).
