The Octane Materials Masterclass

$185 AUD

Unleash the power of Octane.

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.

This course is available by itself or as part of The Ultimate Octane Masterclass – our most comprehensive Octane training. Details here.

Here’s what we cover in the course...

BONUS 01. Material Library

Materials at your fingertips.

The course includes a plug-and-play Octane Materials library with 100 prebuilt materials. We’re also adding new materials all the time!

Even more to come.

This training will be updated with every new release of the octane plugin, so this will be the only course you’ll ever need on the subject.

And we're taking requests.

If there’s a particular look you’re trying to create, students can request a material and we’ll try to get a tutorial and shader up for you.

Easy navigation of course.

Easily navigate through the course content with our course dashboard and ask questions directly under the videos if you need help. Watch videos in any order and we’ll mark the videos you’ve allready watched so you can remember for next time.

Meet your fellow students...

This couse automatically gives you access to the exclusive student group where you can chat directly with other students and the Instructor – as well as join discussions and share you creations for feedback.

A fantastic course all around.
