Please send email to [email protected] and we’ll get you set up with offline mode. We’re waiting to realize V4 before we officially roll that out for 3.08 as well.

The Octane 4.00 final release is going to be available really soon, in a matter of few days or a week, and you can use the latest RC5 build now with Houdini 17. With the free update from Octane 3.08 to Octane 4.00, why do you need Octane 3.08 for Houdini 17? It is not impossible at all to update the 3.08 plugin branch to support Houdini 17, but I suppose it is better to spend this time working in the Octane 4.00 and beyond plugin adding new features and so on.

If you can give me a good reason to work on an Octane 3.08 plugin build for Houdini 17, I could think about it ;) ... but if you are planning to update your pipeline to Houdini 17, at the same time you should think about updating to Octane 4.00

Thanks Goldorak will chase that up.

Hi Juanjo In all honesty I haven't seen with any clarity what is happening to the octane plugin in v4 and licensing and how it will change over v3 in houdini. Is it a paid upgrade with the same licensing as v3 ? (dont mind paying for an upgrade btw) at present I'm wanting to avoid entering any monthly subscription / rental and at the same time avoid being limited to only 2 gpu's. If it has all changed I'd like to keep using v3 without these new restrictions.

Apologies if this has been clarified before , but I cant find any exact details to show what is changing between the two versions in this regard. Has it been posted? some plugins are going to be free with caveats some are not .Its just not very clear.

thanks

Matt

As far as I know all the users with an active commercial Octane 3 license will get the Octane 4 license update for free, that will be valid for 200 GPUs. The subscriptions will also be available at the same price for Octane 4.00, supporting up to 20 GPUs. In any case, Goldorak could correct me if I'm wrong ;)

Thanks,

Here you go:

viewtopic.php?p=348925#p348925

V4 is looking really good as of today, no RC8 is planned. Our next release should be the final 4.00 stable build, going up on the shop page in about a week or so.
