unbiased GPU-accelerated Renderer
Application software CG 3D animation
Octane Render is an unbiased rendering application with real-time capability developed by graphics software company OTOY Inc. It was created by Terrence Vergauwen of the New Zealand based startup company Refractive Software LTD before being sold to OTOY Inc. in 2012. Octane render was the first commercially available unbiased raytracer that fully utilized the GPU, giving it a significant speed advantage; this allows users to more easily modify scenes in real time.
Octane Render runs on Nvidia's CUDA technology when using Nvidia GPU video cards; Octane X for macOS Big Sur runs on Metal on AMD, Intel Skylake and Apple M1 graphics cards.
