Octane Render Pre2.3 v4 (win/lin/mac) commercial released

Hi everyone,

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.

Yours,
The OctaneRender Team.

hm.. it asks for an "octane live activation"...

"no octane live account is activated on this machine. please enter your octane live license user id and password to activate the account on this machine"

what's all that about?
i bought octane when ist was 49€.
what do i have to do... i heard, that things concerning licensing methods have been changed somewhat... but i did not follow that story any further, due to my seldom use of octane...
now i wanted to see what the latest version is... and now that.. don't i have such an account? how do i find out? what do i have to do to use, what i've paid for?

This is great news!

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)


Could we see a comparison of fireflies, using one scene, rendered with the old and the new version?

This and much much more has finally entered a stable stage


I hope a list with all the new stuff is on the way.

That's a sweet thing of you and the team! Having to bring and use your tools - Octane Render anywhere for the user to work and use is really a nice idea, just deactivate and activate to any PC or system that Octane can capable of running. Thanks a lot!
