Octane for Blender repeats rendering one frame? Here is how you fix it

OTOY Octane is a very famous rendering engine for Blender for its convenience and fast rendering. But sometimes, you may encounter a scenario where it only renders one frame repeatedly. Today, we will discuss this Octane for Blender repeats rendering on frame issue and see how to solve it.

1. What is the cause and how to solve it?

We have encountered this issue with our Octane for Blender users. They reported that the project will render normally on their local machine, but will loop rendering just one frame on our remote machine.

This problem happens because Octane for Blender has the default settings for “Render all meshes as” as “As is”. When you use our remote machine, it means that you connect to a new machine and you have to install Blender and Octane. This leads to the fact that when you open your project on the remote machine, it’s likely the settings are default and you need to check them carefully to adjust them.

To solve the issue, it’s easier than you expect. Under Render Tab > Octane Server > Octane Settings > Render all meshes > select “reshapable” instead of “as is”.

2. Final words

We hope that this article will help you to solve the issue of Octane for Blender loops rendering one frame.

iRender provides you high performance and configurable server system for 3D rendering, AI Training, VR & AR, simulation, etc. We believe that design and creative activities are private and personal that only you artists will know what you want with your animation. That’s the reason why we provide a remote server so that you can install any software you need, and do whatever you like with your project.

Octane can utilize multi-GPUs and render speed is linear if you stack more GPU. At iRender, we offer tailored packages with state of the art RTX4090 and RTX 3090 for it. You can choose from 2/4/6 or 8x RTX 4090s/RTX3090s to render with a lightning speed.
