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

Important Note: This version has reverted to version OctaneRender 2020.2, due to issues identified with the 2020.2.1 integration. This version still uses Blender 2.92, and we will be seeking to reintegrate OctaneRender 2020.2.1 in the very near future.

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


  • Reverted SDK to 2020.2
  • Supported the Octane AOV feature


  • Fixed the crash when using the Object Data node with an Empty
  • Fixed the crash when opening "Octane DB" during the final rendering
  • Fixed the opposite rotation issue
  • Fixed the extra "recreate mesh data" for the hidden objects when exiting isolation mode

How to use the AOV feature in the OctaneBlender


You can also find an AOV sample here:

You can read about new features of OctaneRender™ 2020.2 here:

Make sure to use a NVIDIA Studio driver with version at least 456.38 on Windows or 455.23 on Linux to use this version. No driver updates are required for macOS 10.13 (CUDA).

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)
