OctaneRender™ for Cinema 4D released

Postby abreukers » Thu Mar 21, 2013 11:04 pm

Here comes more exciting news for everyone as the new OctaneRender™ for Cinema 4D plugin comes to the fore. Developed by Ahmet Oktar
using Octane's SDK, the OctaneRender™ GPU-based rendering engine is now closely integrated into the Maxon® Cinema 4D modelling environment.

OctaneRender™ is currently recognized by many industry professionals and 3D graphic visualization artists as the most advanced and fastest GPU-based
physically-based render engine with an advanced and flexible node-based workflow and user-interface. Now, with our new plugin products, you can have
the most advanced, fastest physically-based render engine on the market tightly integrated into your 3D modeling and animation software.

This new plugin will provide a fast workflow and rendering pipeline suitable for interactive editing and fast final animation rendering output by using Cinema 4D's
environment for scene setup. Fine-tuning and animating all parameters for objects, materials, lights, media are done all from inside Cinema 4D.

COMPATIBILITY AND OCTANERENDER STANDALONE REQUIREMENT

To run OctaneRender™ for Cinema 4D, you need to have an activated OctaneRender™ Standalone copy on the machine you wish to install the plugin onto. You cannot purchase only the Cinema 4D plugin and use it without also owning an activated copy of OctaneRender™ Standalone on your machine.

The user manual can be found here: http://render.otoy.com/manuals/Cinema4D/
The manual is currently a work in progress and will be completed an updated during the next few weeks.

HOW TO PURCHASE LICENSES

Go to our online shop here: http://render.otoy.com/shop/
A license for the plugin product alone will cost 99 € while in the initial open beta phase, and 199 € when the final version of the plugin is released.
The plugin will require the user to have a valid OctaneRender™ Standalone version installed and activated. If you don't have an OctaneRender license yet, you can purchase both the plugin and the engine/standalone licenses as one bundle during the beta phase for 279 euros
You can also purchase a 3, 5 or 10 pack of OctaneRender™ for Cinema 4D licenses, just like OctaneRender™ Standalone Edition packs.


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Please follow the installation instructions in the manual http://render.otoy.com/manuals/Cinema4D/. There are zip files for both 32 and 64 bit versions of each of Cinema 4D 13 and 14 found in the downloads section of the customer area of our website.
Once installed, run Cinema 4D and confirm the installation via c4dOctane->Octane Live Render command on Cinema 4D Plugins menus.


OCTANELIVE®

Just like OctaneRender Standalone, The Cinema 4D plugin product also needs an OctaneLive license and be activated on a machine.

Opengl previews limited with only a few nodes.


ISSUE RESOLUTION

UPDATE: Several new users have reported problems activating the plug-in. The plug-in needs to run in Administrator mode
on the first launch after installing the plugin and on re-start after entering the user info. Once this is done, it doesn't need to run
