This is the recommended thread for downloading, and posting any questions, suggestions or support queries for OctaneRender for Rhino - TEST and STABLE releases.

IMPORTANT 1: If you get a "Package not compatible" error when installing the plugin, please follow the instructions at https://wiki.mcneel.com/rhino/5/rhi-problems -> "Package not compatible".

IMPORTANT 2: If you get an "Unable to load OctaneRenderForRhino.rhp plugin: initialization failed" error when starting the plugin, delete the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-Ins\F109BD23-4CF3-4C0B-9F83-06BE474B0152 and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-Ins\F109BD23-4CF3-4C0B-9F83-06BE474B0152 registry entries using Regedit and then reinstall the plugin.

If the above does not resolve the problem, then delete HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros from the registry.

IMPORTANT 3: If you get an "OctaneRender for Rhino not activated." error when rendering via the Rhino->Render->Render menu, open the plugin Setup window via the OctaneRenderForRhino command, or by adding the plugin panel to the Rhino Properties window as per https://docs.otoy.com/RhinoH/RhinoPluginManual.htm#Rhinoceros/InstallationofthePluginintoRhinoceros.htm.


Rhino Version
This version requires Rhino5, SR14 or later or Rhino6, SR16 or later on Windows. MacOSX is not currently supported.

To use this version, you need a GPU of compute model 3.0 or higher. Support for Fermi GPUs (like GTX 4xx and 5xx) has been dropped. Also make sure you use a driver of version 387 or higher and if you are working on Mac OS that have a CUDA driver installed that supports at least CUDA 9.1.

Thanks for the update Paul!

I've tested the clipping plane out, still seems abit buggy as not all of my objects were cut by the clipping plane in the octane viewport.
Anyways great start!

Also would it be possible to make the cut/clipped areas blacked out? or an option to black it out.
At the moment it's showing as a hollowed out wall with sunlight going through

I don't think this is possible, as Rhino is not returning faces for the clipped areas.

In checking this, I noticed that "- Experimental support for providing material previews in the Rhino Rendered view for NodeGraph materials." is causing Octane Log errors, which I will fix in the next release.

Hi Fabrizio. This is the error I mentioned at
In checking this, I noticed that "- Experimental support for providing material previews in the Rhino Rendered view for NodeGraph materials." is causing Octane Log errors, which I will fix in the next release.
