First Day in Octane for Cinema 4D

What you should do when it is your first day in Octane for Cinema 4D


In this video we will cover my first day in Octane inside of Cinema 4D. Octane’s GPU rendering offers many amazing time saving features when compared to CPU rendering like Vray. Although there is a time and place for all rendering engines, GPU renderers such as Octane offer the ability to work with your scene in real time. Being able to work with textures and lighting in real time really allows fine detail changes to be made fast and easy. Currently Octane only uses NVIDIA type graphics cards and this can be somewhat frustrating if you don’t have that type of graphics cards. Otoy however is planning to add OpenCL capabilities to Octane 3, so in the near future the ability to use Octane on all card types should be possible. Octane renderings offer physically based results with little to keep track of which really speeds up the creative process and cuts down on turn around time. In this video we cover the process of setting up a scene in your first day in Octane. We cover the process how cinema 4D and Octane work together and what you need to do to get your scene looking as polished as possible even if it is your first day in Octane. Like any project we do our main goal is to teach you how to work with the tools and to learn how to create things that will help you in your own projects. We hope you enjoy this video and feel free to shoot us your thoughts or questions on the YouTube comment section for this video!
