Refractive Software LTD is proud to announce the availability of the fourth intermediate octanelive platform pre-release. (aka pre-2.3 v4)
This release is for PC's running MS Windows (x64 and win32), linux (x64) and Mac OS X (32)
This is the first stable fully octanelive based (which has become beloved by our artists) stable release, available to licensed customers.
Fully finished Area Lights/Mesh emitters, and, the great and well received new OctaneLive system, bringing content
(drag materials into the world-wide shared database and have your friend
drag it onto his model instantly, and, no more activation keys, just
deactivate and reactivate onto your office machine, deactivate, go home and
activate your license to continue working, with all your preferences and
materials right there, and much more to come that will blow you away in a few months)
Anti aliasing is fully solved on all platforms (including the more than 3 year old compute model 1.0 8000 series cards),
without requiring any more memory at all, and no performance impact at all.
Use blackbody emitters to create beatifull, real incadescent or fluorescent lights in your interiors.
We have also reduced the noise and fireflies of the renders considerably,
in a lot of cases a denoising and firefly reduction filter is not needed
anymore, provided you let the engine render more than 30 minutes on an
average machine (in final high resolution)
This and much much more has finally entered a stable stage, for you to reenjoy a new octane render experience, just as you did 6 months ago, have fun
Don't have a license yet? Take the opportunity of our honest, beta pricing scheme now, before the price goes up.
