The first step toward professional rendering is chosing the right renderer. We’ve been using Octane Renderer® in production for several years now and highly recommend it if you want to lift your rendering game. However there has been a lack of training available for Octane … until now.
We’ll start by covering each of the Material Types in Octane incl. Diffuse, Glossy, Specular, Metallic, Universal, Toon, Mix, Blend & Portal Materials.
We’ll cover every Octane node to create your shaders and materials. We’ll see examples of what each node does and how to use them in your workflow.
We’ll build materials together and share loads of tips on how to get great looking shaders and physically accurate results. All Project Files are included.
Often overlooked is the importance of lighting. We take a look at each and every option available to us in Octane. Time to start lighting like a boss!
There’s a lot more to it than just slapping in a camera. Let’s go through the all the different camera modes and effects so you can become a true CG Cinematographer.
Let’s get your work of art out there! We dive deep into the Octane render settings and let you in on some speed and quality tips and tricks.
