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.

Leveraging the power of the GPU, Octane can render final quality images 10x to 50x faster than CPU-based, unbiased rendering engines. That means, no more “get up and wait” in your workflow.

Octane’s on-screen viewport is the final render. Any changes to the scene are instantly updated on the screen allowing you to tweak any setting and view the results immediately.

Octane not only provides incredible speed on a single GPU, but it does so without compromising the quality. Free yourself from lengthy wait times and render images in extreme resolutions.

Octane isn’t tied to any single modelling package and supports more than 21 plugins. No matter what your workflow, we probably have a plugin for it. Want to switch between different modelling tools? We support that too with our common interchange format, .ORBX.

Octane supports subsurface light scattering (SSS), complex IOR, chromatic dispersion and absorption to create some of the best materials in the industry. Use the node editor to create complex materials from procedural textures, or quickly pull a material from our OctaneLive Material Database.

Octane supports HDRI, mesh emitters, IES files and a sun/sky system. Rotate an HDRI file to position it in your scene, or turn any object into a mesh light by enabling the emission property of the material. Octane allows you to manipulate the lighting in a scene, however you choose.
