I second support for the Blender Plugin.
Blender is the best software to use with programs like this because most of the price for programs like Maya and 3DsMax is for the animation and effects.
Blender is a great modeling package, which is all I need to use with Octane.

I would pay too. Blender users are a big part of Octanes clients, and I think they were much present in the early age of Octane developpement.

For my own, I have discovered Octane because a member of the early Octane Team invited me to test Octane by a PM message on Blenderartists.org.

I don't regret at all, because Octane render actually improved a lot my images, but it also required a heavy investment in hardware (high end graphic cards, RAM, Cubix box, Router and network extension) and software (switch to 64bits OS, Antivirus license for network extension, Third party software for camera animation).

I think that many Blender users who had before Octane no other choice than the Blender Internal render also invested much to use Octane. Today, there is Cycles, that can use the hardware purchased initially for Octane, but it is not yet as mature and fast as Octane. There is no doubt that it will improve fast, but for what I have tested so far, Cycles material setup system is imho a bit tedious, and I would really prefer to continue using Octane as my main render, for everything.

So, I would really want a Plugin for Blender. I know that there is a compatibility problem with the conditions of GPL License... and I hope that a solution will be found.

I would even pay for an Octane Python scripting interface, so I could write my own plugin :lol:

Unfortunately, for my own, I am hopeless ar programming. I have done few things in Quick Basic 20 years ago, and created my websites in bad HTML... thats all my "skills" at coding ! :oops:

So, money ready for the plugin !

I think that if no plugin is made for Blender, that will cause a big money loss for RS when will come the time of purchasing the Octane 2.0 update.

Great!

I´m another Blender user hoping there will be a solution for the license problem.

Thanks for a great renderer that will now speed up towards new heights.

Hurray from Sweden!
