From Cycles to Octane engine - step by step tutorial

The goal of this tutorial is to teach you fundamentals about interior rendering with octane engine in Blender and make it easier for you try octane in general. I assume that you have at least basic skills with Blender, so I won´t explain all the details about manipulation with this great piece of software.

In this video, I play with a Blender scene prepared for Cycles by Martin Kováčik.

I’ll show you how to set all the settings, materials, and lighting so when we finish the scene will be ready to render with Octane engine running in Blender.

In the beginning, I will show you all the necessary things you have to change in your settings, so you can work properly in Blender with Octane instead of Cycles.
We’ll take a look at the world settings and color management primarily.

Then, I will describe the way how materials are creating with Octane. Together we’ll prepare a few materials and jump right to the render settings.

And finally, after we bake our image, I’ll show you my way of doing post-processing in Blender compositor.

Ján Morek

I am a hard-working, stubborn and passionate 3D artist professional. Always striving for excellence in satisfying my client´s needs. What I love about visualization is that I can give the form to the ideas people have in their heads and therefore I help them to become the reality. I focus on doing realistic 3D visualizations in Blender with Photoshop post-production afterwards. I have more then five years of experience in working with these programs and thanks to my education I can offer strong architectural as well as artistic background. Not only I know construction techniques, building codes and laws, which can be beneficial for the client and saves lots of time and money, but also I approach each project to be an artistic piece. I try to capture the idea the project represents so it can clearly communicate the client´s intentions and makes it more attractive, inspiring and outstanding.
