It's a pleasure to announce that the upcoming commercial "beta 2.5" release of OctaneRender will function in a new offline mode,
which allows use of all functionality of the software, except for liveDB online content browsing/use, on computers without an internet connection, in a new "offline mode".
An internet connection will still be required during the first installation and activation, and deactivation/moving of the license instance, and installation of new versions as they are released.
Refractive Software is approaching the first final release of it's OctaneRender product to be released in a few months.
The internet connection requirement has done it's job in protecting our software from piracy and allowing the company to grow during alpha and beta software development stages, and over the course of one year and 3 months, produce a solid, complete and well tested final product.
As OctaneRender approaches it's first commercial/final release, use of the engine in commercial industries requiring flexibility and private / secured networks becomes a requirement and therefore the new offline mode will be introduced and tested in our final beta versions during the next weeks.
We would like to thank all participants of still running open-beta program for their patience and continued support on our lively community forums.
Additionally, we will be announcing a key strategic partnership soon, and the addition of several new employees in the software development team at the company.
The OctaneRender Team.
