Refractive Software® is proud to announce the availability of the very first version of OctaneRender® for 3ds max® version 1.0 beta 2.56.
For more information including features, screenshots and a live demonstration video, please see this page:viewtopic.php?f=7&t=96923ds max® Version Requirements
This release will only work with 3ds max® Versions 2010, 2011 & 2012 / 32bit & 64x / Base & Design on MS Windows operating systems.Notes regarding features/functionality
OctaneRender® for 3ds max® implements all functionality of OctaneRender® standalone inside 3ds max®.
Any feature that the Standalone edition supports is supported by the 3ds max® plugin.
Note that this plugin product is built against OctaneRender® Standalone v1.0 beta 2.56, which does not include instancing and object motion/transform editing.
When OctaneRender® Standalone 2.6 is released during the next weeks, the plugin will be updated shortly thereafter to include the new functionality of 2.6.
However, due to the fact that the plugin is tightly integrated in 3ds max, and requires no file IO for changes to scene or object motion, moving objects, changing scene geometry and rendering animations is already much, much faster, and usually instantaneous, compared with the old 3ds max export script and file IO with the standalone version, so don't be dissapointed until you actually try it.COMPATIBILITY AND OCTANERENDER STANDALONE REQUIREMENTTo run OctaneRender® for 3ds max®, you need to also have an activated OctaneRender® Standalone copy activated on the machine you wish to install the plugin onto.
You cannot purchase and use only the 3ds max plugin and use it without also owning an activated copy of OctaneRender® Standalone on your machine
