Hello guys, here you can see some of my test rendering with Octane render. I decided to use it isntead of V-Ray in small projects. The main plus of Octane is that it renders veeeery fast. Also it renders DOF and lens flares at the same time. So you do also post production during render. Octane works on GPU, not CPU.
As I said I use it only for small projects. Becuase it has also some minuses. For instance with my graphic card(1GB) I can render only 1.5 million polygons. More will not render.
Another one minus is that also depends on count of textures. A lot of textures in one scene will not appear at the same time. I think its a bug.
Anyway I can say that Octane has realy great future. So try it! You won't be disappointed!
A little bit lower you can find some of mine test rendering.
