ORK - Octane Render Kit

That's Incredible News!

And if that's not enough, Valzheimer has created an incredible Octane Render Kit (ORK) which helps folks like me, who have never used Octane get into this awesome engine in a much easier fashion than combing through endless forum posts.


Octane Render Kit (ORK) is a complete starter kit for Octane Render plugin for Daz Studio, equipped with ready to render Genesis 8 materials, Octane Render environments, mesh lights and render settings, custom base shader pack, and templated shaders for easy one-click conversion of scene materials from Iray to Octane.

Created to fit the need of a Daz Studio user and completely adjusted to integrate Octane Render plugin into Daz Studio workflow as flawlessly as possible, Octane Render Kit will help bridge the gap of manual material adjustments and provides one-click, ready to render solutions straight from Daz Studio content library and smart content.

Octane Render Kit includes full material sets for Genesis 8 Male and Female, both in four different skin tones and two glossiness levels (8 presets each) with partial settings saved separately for easy use. Shader presets include 49 base shaders for most used materials in 3D such are metals, water, glass, car paints, and similar, but also include 35 templated shaders of various material types. Templated shaders are set up to use textures already in the scene with easy load via Octane's smart templating system, hence providing universal solutions for users of all skill levels. ORK ships with complete lighting solutions, including custom mesh lights, 8 preset environments, and 5 HDRI settings as well as 8 ready to load scenes and two additional environment settings that use fog and dust mediums for atmospheric effects.

With Octane Render Kit content and ORK video walkthrough tutorial, you will become familiar with Octane Render while having fun and already achieving great rendering results.

This product requires the OctanerRender Plugin Free Version. You can get this for free by registering for an account at the link below.

Great set of instructions, eh? Very clear, very straight-forward. Great Job, V!!!

I love to help others as best I can. This is a rather broad topic: CG Filmmaking, so my articles on any particular topic may not answer your specific question.

Most of the questions directed to me are regarding Carrara or How did I do this?

For these sorts of things, post your question at the Carrara Discussion Forum (or another appropriate category) at Daz forums, and if I don't see it right away, someone else might. They are such a friendly and helpful bunch! I've learned so much from that forum over the years!

For a more immediate question directed to me, log into those forums and Send me a PM!
