The Ultimate Octane Masterclass

$350 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 includes both The Octane Materials Masterclass and The Octane Lighting and Rendering Masterclass. You can also purchase these seperatly. Details here.

Here’s what we cover in the course...
