Hallo.
Could you make a tutorial about the installation. Maybe because I am not the sharpest knife, but I can not install the program, even following the steps. Once the server is running, not installation is opening. The blender.exe that I open from the client does not have Octane in it. Chances are I am doing something wrong, therefore a tutorial would be great. For me, and for those in the struggle too.
Thank you.

I have a GeForce 970 and a 1070 but they are not available. Why?

EDIT:
I got it. Had to go to the Octane preferences and activate my GPU.

For now, this is still an experimental build. We aim to address all major reported issues by the time we release our first Stable Build.

If there are any specific issues that you would like to see addressed, feedback would be appreciated.

Hello eisklotz,

Could you confirm whether you have OctaneRender Engine enabled in your User Preferences? You will find it in User Preferences under "Add-ons". It is possible that checkbox for this option was unticked by default upon initial installation.

Cheers,

We will be updating our documentation in the coming weeks, to reflect the latest features that we have available in our latest Blender releases. Apologies for any inconvenience.

I will see what I can do to replicate the issue on our in-house machines, and get back to you regarding your reported issue shortly.

Cheers,
Azen
