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.


  • Upgraded to 2018.1 RC4
  • Supported orbx proxy (now we are able to import external orbx as a proxy)("Properties-Data-Orbx properties-Orbx File Path")
  • Supported to change target node tree when fetching livedb material
  • Supported viewport material color("Properties-Material-Settings")
  • Added "Linear space invert" for texture image nodes
  • Included alembic feature for osx/linux builds
  • Prevented crash when failing to overwrite orbx file


  • Fixed motion blur render issue under the preview navigation
  • Fixed material preview render failure
  • Fixed emission issue in mix material


  • Due to the current motion blur mechanism, animation for orbx proxy does not work when motion blur enabled
  • Displacement does not work with vertex color/float attributes in the current build(engine team has plans to support it)

You can read about new features of OctaneRender™ 2018.1 RC4 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)
