2014 NAB Show: OTOY outlines the future of OctaneRender™,
details forthcoming features for added realism and sophisticated
editing



LAS VEGAS, Nev. – April 7, 2014 – At the annual NAB Show this week, OTOY Inc. announced new
advances in development for its popular OctaneRender™ software that will enable sophisticated
editing of computer-generated scenes. Originally previewed at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference
in March, the new features being made public now are focused on achieving increased
realism in renders, and allowing for complex manipulation of scene elements. The new features
include:

  • Deformable object motion blur – Combining support for deformable objects and motion blur, this
    feature will allow for realistic simulation of specific parts of objects in motion.
  • Render pass output for lighting layers – Enabling greater fine-tuning of lighting settings
    following rendering, this feature will produce images for each render pass that constitute an
    image such as reflections, refractions, normal, direct and indirect lighting, among others.

  • Deep compositing pipeline – Through the use of multi-layer EXR files, this feature will allow for
    the compositing of ‘deep images’ that contain information about the coverage and depth of each
    pixel. Each layer in the EXR file stores a render pass which can then be composited in
    post-production.
  • Out-of-core rendering – Scenes that don’t fit into graphics memory will be supported through out
    of core rendering, storing currently unused source data in host memory while swapping it into
    graphics memory when required.
  • User-defined GPU procedurals – The ability to create complex textures and shaders using Lua
    code either to pre-calculate them as images or to execute on the fly while rendering.

These features will be included in a forthcoming version of OctaneRender™ sometime after version 2.0.

Wow!! Lots of cool announcements lately, save something for Siggraph too 8-)

Having render passes available in Octane is fantastic, but how does it affect the GPU memory? Do you render all the buffers sequentially or simultaneously? In case of the latter, I imagine you can't do more than 2-3 passes per GPU at once.

Also, what I am personally waiting for before I make the plunge is the cloud rendering service (especially when passes are available). What's the status on that?

Amazing - must be an SUPER exciting time for the people on the Octane Team - a lot of work starting to crystallise.

Great work, much appreciated.

This looks great. Can I ask if 'sometime after version 2.0' means in version 3+ or does it mean as part of the version 2 cycle?

It's gonna be version 2.x, so it can be 2.5 or something like that. ;)

Have you had that confirmed by OTOY, or are you surmising it?

It is confirmed as part of our GTC and NAB announcements - 2.x means any 2.0 update before 3.0.

Will current octane render owners get the update to 2.0 for free?
