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
