I am a very fresh new Octane render user, since I bought the licence this week only ...
Testing the Sketchup beta version, I realised a rendering starting from 3D modeling in two days working and a full immersion on the Octane Tutorials and Youtube videos.
In my opinion those results are really stunning, compared with the time spent to focus on Octane's capabilities.
I previously used render software by different competitors, with really different results.
Octane render is a very nice and powerful product, I am quite satisfied by now.
Every concern/ suggestion is very well accepted!
