OctaneRender for Houdini 2.2 beta is now available for all Houdini users at reduced price. The plugin will be updated on regular basis until reach the first stable production release.
http://home.otoy.com/render/octane-render/purchase/

The plugin supports all the Octane 2.2 features inside Houdini, and a lot of the Houdini tools, like instancing, fur, tessellated primitives, any kind of polygonal surfaces from simulations, like fluids, etc. And this is only the beginning, more features are planned for the next 2.x beta releases.

The plugin is currently available for Houdini and Houdini FX 14.0 for Windows x64 and Linux gcc4.8. OctaneRender for Houdini currently doesn’t work in Houdini Apprentice and Houdini Indie because they do not support third party renderers. We can provide the plugin for Houdini 13.0 by request if there is a studio working with this version.

This is the plugin online documentation:
http://render.otoy.com/manuals/Houdini/

And a brief tutorial with the first steps with the plugin:
http://render.otoy.com/manuals/Houdini/?page_id=696

The registered users have access to the plugin support forum to post all the bugs, the feature request and the amazing images and animations made with OctaneRender:

Thanks to all the closed beta testers and to SideFX for their support in this project !!!

Yes, I can release this build without problems if you need it. Usually I will release the plugin builds for the last three Houdini production releases, but I can build the plugin for any H14 version by request.

I want to release the demo version as soon as possible, but I want to test in depth the current build. Perhaps the next beta build could be released in both commercial and demo versions.

Hi, I wanted to try Octane for Houdini demo. Because Mac OS X install has no installation info (just for win and linux) I placed whole folder in Apps and set variables to that folder in houdini.env (HOUDINI_PATH = /Applications/Octane_2.24.2.0_Houdini_15.0.179.25_OSX;&). Now Houdini see the Octane but when I try to vreate an Octane render node it fails with this error. Can anyone help me please? Thanks a lot.
