The OctaneRender™ v1.0 Beta Program
The ongoing OctaneRender™ beta program allows users to buy a license for OctaneRender™ Standalone Edition and integrated plugin products, at half the normal retail price. Your beta license will also be valid for the final v1.0 Edition release, and subsequent dot releases such as v1.1, v1.2, etc, and will allow a reduced upgrade cost to future v2.0 releases.
It is important to note that Octane is currently Beta software and is not feature complete, however it is already very mature and can be used for professional purposes.
As the Beta cycle progresses, features will be added and stability increased until the V1.0 feature set has been reached. Participants in the Beta program will have access to builds of OctaneRender™ as it progresses.
The beta license provides for a downloadable electronic-only copy of the software and manuals, boxed editions with printed manuals will be made available in the future.
Please read the terms and conditions at the end of this page prior to placing your order. By purchasing any OTOY New Zealand LTD product, you agree to the terms and conditions listed below on this page.
When will I receive the software?
The beta releases are available for download to licensed customers right now.
Note that all versions of OctaneRender™ as of v1.0 beta 2.52 and higher will require an internet connection to be present during the license activation stage only, and for sharing content with community users. If you do not have an internet connection on the machine you are planning to install OctaneRender™ on, you should consider getting a low speed mobile connection, or any other temporary connection to activate the software during the first install. Once the software has been activated online, you can run it without an internet connection, although you need it again to upgrade the software, or use the online sharing features.
