Octane Studio Tools – new update.

Josef Blog Roll, CINEMA 4D, Octane 19 Comments

If you don’t know what Octane Studio Tools is , it’s a the octane edition of our Studio Tools pack which is  a collection of xpresso rigs , HDRI textures, and c4d scene files setup to create a realistic studio like renders right in c4d! , and also to help you work quicker when presented with a similar situation , we released the octane edition a few months ago for free and we just updated it to make it fully functional again!

This quick update brings octane studio tools to v3 of octane render for Cinema 4D, at the time of this update , octane 3 is still in alpha but the tools should work as intended with the final release of v3 octane, however we will make sure to update the tools accordingly if any major changes occur upon release.

The tools will remain free as well so if you are using the new alpha octane c4d plugin, you can download them right now and start playing! , here is full list of changes made.

  • Changed the softbox controls so they now can be controlled better in the Attributes manager.
  • Improved the editor feedback of the softbox and HDRI tool.
  • Added an enable/disable to the softbox and HDRI tool.
  • Removed target softbox , normal softboxes can be easily assigned a custom target.
  • Disabled the camera imager settings on all studio setups (can be done via render settings).
  • Reset render settings to match most defaults on all studio setups.
  • Octane materials on stages now match default octane materials.
  • Fixed an overlapping issue on the box adjustable stage.
  • Fixed film offset mismatch (reset values to 0) on all studio setups.
  • Changed octane sliders to c4d float sliders (fixed for v3 octane only).
  • Updated fog defaults to match v3 defaults (applies to HDRI tool and sky helper).
  • New studio setups (experimental infinite setup added),updated older setups.
  • General improvements for quality and speed.

    In frame sequenze, renderer stops after the first Frame. Any solution? Can’t tell anymore, witch StudioSetup I used…

    Your HDRI scene setup doesn’t work in my PC. HDRI seems only white color. If I change HDRI different file, The result is the same.

    After I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments
    are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    Hi Joseph,

    can you please please make a tutorial for the hardware needed in order to be able to be productive and render every day?!

    it’s really frustrating because the machine I use isn’t powerful enough and I have to change asap…

    I’ve just downloaded Octane Studio Tools. I’m on OS X using c4d r18.039 and Octane subscription version 3.06.2 and every time I open one of the setups in your library, Octane crashes, taking c4d with it. Any ideas?

    Hi, I think there a lot of crashes with Octane new update. Do you have any plans to update this? I would like to buy a pro version of this.

    Hello! Do you have any plans to update for Octane V3.06? Studio Tools no longer works with the latest update of Octane. I’d gladly pay for these tools if updated! =)
