OctaneRender™ for Blender plugin. Windows, Linux and OSX versions. The download links, provided on this page, are for Perpetual License Holders.

OctaneRender Studio subscribers can access their software from the "Downloads" section of their Customer Account Page.

This is a TEST version, so be prepared to have some issues. Do not use it for production.


  • Updated to 2019.1.1
  • Supported Hair
  • Supported Octane Render Layer
    • You can use the Octane render layer system as you did in OctaneBlender with Blender 2.79(e.g. 17.x and 18.x)(The setting are under "Property-View Layer" panel)
    • Now OctaneBlender can recognize the Collections correctly - which is introduced in Blender 2.8


  • Fixed the collection instance crash
  • Added "Custom Properties" in the material panel
  • Removed extra thin layer socket


  • Toon material preview may crash due to the issue in SDK 2019.1.1

You can read about new features of OctaneRender™ 2019.1.1 here:

The installation consists from two parts:
1. OctaneRender™ Server
2. Blender - OctaneRender™ edition

After starting OctaneServer it will take some time before the LiveDB tree and LiveDB material previews will be available from Blender - as OctaneServer caches the LiveDB data from remote server right after starting. But only the materials groups tree will be re-cached every time after server start, LiveDB material preview images will be cached only once - so only the very first OctaneServer start will need some more time before LiveDB tree will be available in Blender.
After the server is run - you can start rendering (or open a rendered view) from inside Blender.


DOWNLOAD (both distributives must be reinstalled, they depend on each other)
