OctaneRender™ for Blender plugin. Windows, Linux and OSX versions. The download links provided 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.


  • Update to octane 2018 XB2
  • support new 2018 features
  • Vectron
    • Create Vectron Node from "Node Editor-Add-Octane Vectron-Vectron"
    • Select the Vectron OSL file(same as OSL Texture)
    • Assign the vectron for the target mesh(Open "Data-Vectron properties", select node graph then select the vectron node)
    • Please check the attached samples
  • Cryptomatte pass
    • Preview: "Render Layers-Render Passes-Preview pass type"
    • Final render: "Render Layers-Render Passes-Cryptomatte Passes". (The exr files will be put under the folder set in "Render-Output")
  • SDF volume
    • Tick "Data-Volume properties-SDF" on.
    • The usage is same as "Octane VDB" but support surface material rendering
  • New scatter depth limiting
    • "Render-Octane kernel-Max. scatter depth"

You can read about new features of OctaneRender™ 2018.1 XB2 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)

Blender Octane Edition - 17.0 (2.79)
Octane Server - 17.0

  • Your Hardware specifications (unless they are included in your signature)
  • A clear description of the issue you have found
  • Steps that you took to trigger this bug, so that we can reproduce it (ideally, please also provide screenshots. If possible, files for testing would also be appreciated).
  • Whenever possible, please confirm that this issue is only happening in the plugin, and not also in the Standalone Edition (if the bug occurs in both, it is likely that this issue should be reported in the OctaneRender Standalone section of the Forums).
