we are extremely proud to announce the availability of Octane Render 1.0! We would like to thank all of our beta users and customers for helping us pass this important milestone by offering invaluable feedback, bug reports and suggestions that resulted in a rock solid product.
Fully integrated plug-ins (eight in development with more to come)
Octane Render is also available as an integrated plug-in for popular 3D modeling packages such as Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya and Smith Micro Poser and will soon be available for Autodesk Softimage, Autodesk AutoCAD, Daz3D Daz Studio, Newtek Lightwave and Maxon Cinema4D. The tightly integrated plug-ins deliver Octane Render's incredible speed and quality right in the viewport of the 3D host app, allowing artists to interactively change lights, camera, materials and object placement and immediately see the rendered result with final quality. This revolutionary real-time workflow is a game changer for animators and other 3d professionals.
In addition to the fully integrated plug-ins, we also provide free community developed export scripts for Blender, Modo, SketchUp, Rhino, Softimage, 3ds Max, Cinema4D and Daz3D which allow users to export their scenes and animations and render them with the OctaneRender Standalone version.

About a week ago, I ordered the parts to build a new machine with a decent CUDA graphics card to check out Octane. The results seemed pretty impressive. The parts came in days late because of the holiday, I put this machine together LAST NIGHT, pulled down the Max/Octane demo, and the price of Octane doubled overnight.
Congratulations on this first "non-beta" release ! Will download it for sure !!!
Many many thanks to the Octane team, who have totally changed my rendering experience for some years now... Octane is amazingly fast, great, and the Octane users' community is very helpful and welcoming too.
Congratulations with this kind of birthday I am so glad I 'met' Octane a while ago and I am happy to get to know Octane better and better bit by bit. Octane makes rendering everyday like its it is a birthdayparty.. A lot of joy! Thanx for this great software.. It is the best.... So again Happy Birthday. Greetz,
