I'm new to Octane and relatively new to 3d modelling as well. I've been using Blender for about a year. I know I'm not the typical customer that buys Octane and probably 95% of the users have quite a bit of experience already with modeling and render.
For me, I get the ideas of Octane and generally understand how to use it. I've done a ton of work with Cycles and there are enough similarities that I can get going.
However, I can't seem to figure out the more subtle parts that really let Octane shine. I see these amazing archviz renders and just can't figure out how to produce something of that quality.
The Blender community is kind of tutorial crazy (free ones) and it's amazing how many tutorials about every aspect of 3d work is out there. I know that Octane is relatively new, but it would be really fantastic is someone would do an in-depth tutorial on how to render a specific scene. The one tutorial I've seen like this is actually by a blender user (www.blenderdiplom.com - rendering a mantis in Octane). But I'd love to see someone take an archviz scene and go through all of the details of how they created it. A step-by-step tutorial - not a general overview. Something like this, but for Octane http://www.blenderguru.com/videos/rende ... th-cycles/
Any possibility someone might be willing to do this to help some noobies out?
Thanks to all - this is really a fantastic program and I'm loving playing with it so far.
